Tourorist: How I Failed to Find Myself in Southeast Asia by Tanner Ballengee.
Fleeing the emotional tragedies of his hometown in Kansas, Tanner Ballengee set out for Southeast Asia. The plan was to meet up with a comrade and ride motorcycles across Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia, a harsh barge through the infamous Killing Season. The only problem was that Ballengee knew nothing about the region, even less about motorcycles, and only had the money he'd been able to save by delivering pizzas. The result is a narrative that entirely shuns the tedious pretensions of travel writing. Full of illegal camping, horny monks, and plenty of booze, Tourorist strips lust for experience to the bone.
