good evening gremmies. jason leung of thisallencompassingtrip.com wrote a book. as you may have guessed from the image directly to the left, it’s titled “This All Encompassing Trip”. Here’s the pitch:
Canadian born Jason Leung, then 25, quit his job as a civil engineer and construction manager to follow Pearl Jam on tour and has since become an avid traveller, aspiring filmmaker, travel writer, part time blogger and entrepreneur. His range of experience broadened from managing high profile construction projects for both the Vancouver and London Olympics to directing and producing travel documentaries, music and wedding videos, and co-founding his own design company, on top of writing this book. Jason says he “left it all behind to pursue a more fulfilling life.”
The story chronicles his journey of 197 days on the road driving 40,494km and flying 103 hours through 13 countries for 62 Pearl Jam shows. Along the way, Jason opens his mind, discovers new cultures, tries various tasty foods, finds romance and develops strong connections with incredible people who allow him to always feel at home during a world trip.
kind enough, jason sent goof and gremmie a copy to review. the book arrived last week, but as gremmie is planning a wedding and goof is about to pull a jed clampett, neither of us have had the time to adequately read it. JR over at Two Feet Thick has however and put together this review. based on what we’ve read so far, JR’s perspective is spot on. “This All Encompassing Trip” reads like “On The Road” for Pearl Jam fans where jason is sal paradise and pearl jam his dean moriarty. pick it up here; at $20 there are worse ways to spend your money.
