In the early '70s, a young Englishman named Tony Wheeler crossed the globe by land to arrive in Australia. He wrote about his adventures on the "hippie trail" in the guidebook Across Asia on the Cheap. That hand-printed, 96-page book evolved into an international media empire known as Lonely Planet Publications. Dark Lands, his newest book, explores the dangerous side of life as a global traveler, from stories of being mugged and arrested overseas to tales of traveling through lands wracked by civil unrest, drug wars and more.

He had some good quotes, though they were regurgitated from religious sayings thousands of years old and, frankly, some of the stuff he said which seemed to "ring true" if you thought about it more wasn't so. Saw him interacting with other folks and met him very briefly after the event and didn't feel any of the inner peace I've felt talking with some Buddhist monks, was quite sad about this. If his teachings genuinely help people, I'm all for it, but this event was a bit of a bust for me.
This event will be followed by a networking reception.
