"On the day Fisher Milaiic leaves home, he doesn’t know what a Gap Year is. But as he travels he discovers an entire culture of people taking one or many years off from regular life: students and criminals, escapists and tourists, searchers and evaders of redemption. For a little over a decade Fisher wanders anywhere he can get to and works any temp job he can walk away from and he writes every day. And this is what he wrote. This first book in the Gap Decade Series tracks the progress of a young traveler trying to stretch out that portion of our lives when we are most open to immersing ourselves in the world and its people. He slowly learns the skills of the nomad: how to stay alive on a fishing boat in Alaska, how to cross America on fifty dollars and a blue tarp, and how to rent a Patagonian car using only a Japanese Library Card. Part Travelogue and part Memoir and enmeshed with literary ambitions, The Gap Decade is the story of a migrant and his childhood friends stepping off the Assembly Line, and then trying like hell not to get swept back onto it."

I really enjoyed this book about travelling and at the same time the story of a young man experiencing the world and himself in it. Fisher Milaiic's style of writing is witty and present, as if you are there with him yourself, experiencing everything with him. I particularly like the description of the different people on his travels, no man or woman is too ordinary not to be interesting, it's a lesson we all can learn from.
