Getting Rooted in New Zealand by Jamie Baywood - Book Spotlight

Getting Rooted in New Zealand

Getting Rooted in New Zealand by Jamie Baywood
Travel Memoir
Published: 21st April 2013

Craving change and lacking logic, at 26, Jamie, a cute and quirky Californian, impulsively moves to New Zealand to avoid dating after reading that the country's population has 100,000 fewer men. In her journal, she captures a hysterically honest look at herself, her past and her new wonderfully weird world filled with curious characters and slapstick situations in unbelievably bizarre jobs. It takes a zany jaunt to the end of the Earth and a serendipitous meeting with a fellow traveler before Jamie learns what it really means to get rooted.

A real page turner - like reading a very funny / interesting friend's secret diary.Also a fascinating insight into life in New Zealand as seen through the eyes of a traveller.

"Just finished reading the book. I loved all the hilarious characters in the office. Now I know where all the money goes that we pay Auckland Council. Ahhh !!! So many funny stories and lots of laughs, and most importantly it has warmth and humanity as you write from a Buddhist perspective. Look forward to reading book number two !"
