Hitchy Feet

Rating
John Card was a bored thirty-something high school science teacher when he decided to do what most of us only dream about - pack it all in and run away from 'real life'. John Card had a good job with promising prospects. However, he wanted something more in his life. He dreamed of running away from home and (unlike most people) he actually did. After asking his mum to help him pack his backpack that is...'Hitchhiking around Australia had some unexpected outcomes. I didn't expect to be put in prison, endure mild strangulation, get head-butted, thieve government property or ride on the roof of a vehicle through the Pilbara. Yet, somehow, despite the in-your-face nature of these events, they were nice surprises. It beat the monotony of marking books with dicks drawn all over them,' said John. this is one man's hilarious account of his time hitchhiking 15,000 kilometres around Australia in search of adventure and a new way of thinking about life. Along the way he encounters nude walkers, has abuse hurled at him from passing cars, drinks a lot of beer, eats a lot of bananas (going cheap in QLD), sees a lot of road signs and antagonises a lot of people. He also discovers the enormous generosity of ordinary Australians, and unexpectedly reignites his own passion for life.

Reviews

'John Card's Hitchy Feet is like Jack Kerourac's On the Road except with more laughs, less drug use and dysentery, and no boring bits about jazz musicians. A delightful romp through the unsettling arcadia that is the REAL Australia.' - Shaun Micallef, comedian, actor, author, radio host and TV presenter of 'Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell'.
