Book Description

'Someday, when I am rich, I am going to invite someone from my travels to visit me in America.' Brad Newsham was a twenty-two-year-old travelling through Afghanistan when he wrote this in his journal. Fourteen years later, he's a Yellow Taxi driver working in San Francisco. He's not rich, but he has never forgotten his vow. Take Me With You is the compelling account of his journey through the Philippines, India, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and South Africa as he searches for the right person - someone who couldn't afford to leave their own country, let alone holiday in the West. Newsham's story will change the way you think about your life and the lives of those you meet when you travel. Who does he invite home? Read Take Me With You and find out...

After his wife announced she had met someone else and wanted a divorce, Brad Newsham went for the drastic measure of buying a one- way ticket to Asia in the hope that she would miss him. It worked, but by then he was having the time of his life, blazing a trail across China, Japan and Russia.
