Seven days and seven nights in Bondi's backpacker hostel. Sounds easy, sounds biblical . . . sounds scary. Barry Divola wrote an article on the Bondi Backpacker Hostel for Sunday Lifemagazine. He had no idea what to expect but found himself in an alternate universe. The response to his article was phenomenal and has spurred him on to take the backpacker challenge!In a travel memoir that is a little like George Orwell's Down and Out in Parisrailroaded by Hunter S. Thompson, this is an insight into backpacker culture like you've never seen it before. From Bondi to Cairns, Barry follows the infamous backpacker trails that lead from Bondi up north to the holiday destinations of Queensland. He tests his strength, his sanity and his liver in a memoir that will make you cringe but compel you to read on to the end.
