AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Ash Lynch's life is at a standstill. A weird turn of events finds him taking off overseas with his new 'great mate' Miller, a backpacker. Their often hilarious journey across Europe has more than a dash of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, taking them to new places in every sense of the word... But will Cali, the gorgeous Greek girl Ash met in Amsterdam, be the one for him? And is he brave enough to visit her and find out? Or is his sojourn going to dead-end back in Australia? (from back cover)
