The bestselling author of Round Ireland with a Fridge looks back on his trip and explains exactly what he learnt in between pints of Guinness.
Many moons ago, a foolhardy attempt to win a drunken bet resulted in Tony Hawks embarking on a journey around Ireland with his trusty travelling companion-cum-domestic appliance, his fridge. The journey became an inspirational and, at times, downright silly adventure which was chronicled in a book that went on to be an international bestseller — Round Ireland with a Fridge.
In The Fridge-Hiker's Guide to Life, Tony looks back on what he learnt on his quixotic quest. Namely: if all you have between birth and death is a journey, then wouldn't it be best to make it fun? Looking back on the many encounters he had along the way — occasionally fraught, frequently hilarious and sometimes poignant — and the colourful cast of characters he met, Tony realizes that following mantras is sometimes as simple as "Do something silly."
