Many people dream of experiencing the beauty of the difference in language, culture, and geography around the globe. But fears, doubts, and myths hold them back. In this book seasoned slow world traveler Bhavana Gesota, addresses all of these concerns and more.
Over the years I have had quite a few people tell me I resemble this person or that person. Unfortunately, the comparison has never been to one Richard Gere, George Clooney or Brad Pitt.
For a while, I got a lot of people saying I looked like Jeremy Clarkson (on the right-hand side of the picture … I am in the middle) of #topgear / #grandtour fame. Now whilst I do love Top Gear (the version with Clarkson, Hammond and May) and the Grand Tour and their irreverent and politically incorrect humour I am still not seeing the comparison with Clarkson as something to be very happy about.
More recently I have been getting more people saying I look like the late and great Anthony Bourdain. I think this is down to me having lost some weight – but I think he definitely is more of a silver fox than I am a the moment. I have just finished reading his memoir, “Kitchen Confidential“, which goes into his early life as a chef – complete with excesses of alcohol, drugs and women. It is amazing how a lot of these chefs live beyond the age of 30! Anyway, I think Bourdain is cool and we share a love of travel – so I feel much more comfortable with being mentioned in the same breath!
I am who I am – warts and all.
