Round Ireland with a fridge

by Tony Hawks


Have you ever made a drunken bet? 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.

Ein erfrischend witziges Buch über einen außergewöhnlichen Trip durch ganz Irland - immer in Begleitung eines Kühlschranks, der am Ende Kultstatus erreicht und zahlreiche Fans hat. Sehr lesenswert, da auch liebevoll die irische Mentalität beschrieben wird. Wenn man ein Faible für Irland und seinen Bewohnern oder gar Verbindungen zu ihnen hat, wird man viel Freude am Lesen haben, da sich einige 'Klischees' doch herrlich bestätigen.
