‘MEGA‘ is Brad Nicholls’ impassioned, entertaining, soul-stirring account of his epic journey of mad youth and an inspiration for all aspiring long-term world travellers.
The travelogue captures both the thrill and exhaustion of long-term travel, told through the eyes of the traveller.
In 2013 Brad Nicholls flew to the United States after traveling Europe by bus, train and boat for much of the previous year. After a three month adventure across America he kept going and going and going…
Somewhere along the way the trip became a journey; a coming of age adventure around and around and around the world.
Nicholls has brought it all to life on the page, writing an often hilarious, always brutally honest MEGA memoir of rail adventures across America and Australia. Drugs and drag in LA and Mexico City. A summer of friendship, seduction, betrayal and redemption in Seoul. Months of street dwelling and net cafe living in Japan. Love in Taiwan. A seven month overstay. A deportation and year-long ban. Humid chaos in Singapore. Retrospection and reclusion in Indonesia. Existential bliss on a Hawaiian beach. A harrowing near-death experience in the backcountry of Canada. Triumphant returns, days lived in airports, life affirming layovers and so much more.
