Have you ever made a drunken ben? Worse, still, have you eveer tried to win one? In attempting to hitchhike round Ireland wich a fridge, Tony Hawks did both, and his foolhardiness led him to one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty traveling companion-cum-domestic appliance, he made his way from Dublin to Donegal, from Sligo through Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry, Cork, Wexford, Wicklow--and back again to Dublin. In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge met a real prince, a bogus king, and the fridge got christened. They surfed together, entered a bachelor festival, and one of them had sex without the other knowing. And unexpectedly, the fridge itself became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland.An international bestseller, Round Ireland with a Fridge is a classic travel adventure in the tradition of Bill Bryson with a dash of Dave Barry.

Read quickly and in some ways too quickly. In some places he came across as being disinclined to do the place-names the justice of looking them up and spelling them properly.

4.0 Round Ireland with a Fridge
This is one of those easy-to-read, gently funny books that I can return to over and over again when I'm in need of cheering up, along with anything by Danny Wallace, Dave Gorman, Douglas Adams or Rich Hall.

Tony Hawks took on a bet and set out to hitchhike around the perimeter of Ireland, with a small fridge in tow, in less than one month. As an aside, I'll never understand how people who write this sort of book remember all the details -- even with a journal, I'd still get confused and mix up who/what...
