Descripción del producto

NEW, REWRITTEN AND EDITED! Reviews (negative) prior to June 2015 are on the old version.

Facing an unhappy future, the author makes the brave decision to sell her money-pit house, quit her soul-destroying job and get the heck out of boring Australia. On her first day of freedom, she lands on Phuket Island and begins a six-month life-changing travel adventure through Thailand and India.

Rejuvenated after spending weeks in a tropical paradise, she was ready for the skyscraper city of Bangkok. There she was ferried along the river and tuk-tuked through the traffic jammed streets to wacky Khao San Road, glittering temples, spirited boxing matches, a dizzy skywalk and wild rock bands in trendy nightclubs. She arrived at the famous Bridge on the River Kwai in a bizarre temple taxi and comfortable long distance trains transported her north to the gigantic statues of Wat Khaek in Non Khai and to a strange mosquito museum in Chiang Mai. Thailand travel was easy.

Landing in Mumbai, she was plunged unprepared into the chaos and confusion of India where she quickly discovered that the crowds, poverty, harassment, pollution and crumbling infrastructure made travelling in India anything but easy. The challenges were worth it though. India’s ancient culture, historical sites lost in time, the desert state of Rajasthan with its blue, pink and golden cities, the one-and-only Taj Mahal, the stunning landscapes and the hospitality of the friendly people, were nothing like she’d ever experienced before.

I Come Alone: Travels in Thailand and India is the story of the people the author met and the places she met them. So take her by the hand and get ready for an amazing and incredible journey.

Read more of the author's travel adventures in the sequel Rickety Buses Bumpy Roads: Travels in India, Nepal, Peru, Bolivia.

Biografía del autor

Michelle J Coote was born in Sydney, Australia. She followed all of society's instructions on how to create a successful life. Over many years of hard work, she had secured a university degree, a high-paying job, a big house and lots of stuff. But after travelling in other countries, she discovered she wanted something else. So she left the golden shores of Australia, travelled around more exotic countries for a few years, and then found a new home in a foreign land. The author now resides by the sea in Thailand, where the ocean breeze and fresh air help her to write about her tavelling adventures. 'I Come Alone' is the first account of one of those adventures.

I bought this as an ebook based on a recommendation from a friend. What a bargain!
My husband and I both found the book delightful, a very personal travelogue with insights into Australia, Thailand, and India.
The author's personal story is compelling, especially her estrangement from work and life in Australia and her move to freedom in Thailand and India.
I also enjoy traveling and it was great fun to read the details of her discoveries and disappointments.
Also just finished reading the rather heated remarks from a reviewer a few months ago. Certainly shows that the book is thoughtful and real, and can provoke a passionate response.
I didn't find anything offensive, but like any travel writer, the author does comment on her experiences and observations. That's why I enjoy travel writing, to see the world through another's eyes.
Looking forward to the next book from the author, on her continuing experiences in Thailand.
Get to work, Michelle!

I really enjoyed reading Michelle Coote's travel story - A courageous woman leaves her secure and comfortable (but boring!) life in Australia and dives into a strange world where everything is so different. Dangers multiply if you are a woman travelling alone but Michelle did it with all her naivety and innocence - and this attitude of hers seems to have brought out the 'gentleman' in even the roughest of rogues! Her compassionate understanding of, what must be to her, a bewildering array of people and events is indeed commendable. I liked your book Michelle and look forward to your next one - this time ? about your experiences in Thailand...

The author of I Come Alone is a talented and perceptive story teller who draws the reader into her interesting and unique account of traveling in Thailand and India. A very enjoyable and well written book filled with compassion and passion for the people and cultures of the countries she visits. (P. Ratnieks)

My intention was to read the first chapter of I Come Alone. What a provocative title. I would read a chapter a day until I completed this nonfiction work. How wrong I was. Instead of one chapter, I took delight in reading much of the book in one sitting. The story drew me in and I became mesmerized.

The book is "prose friendly." To my ongoing surprise, there is a plot, meaning I wanted to know what is happening during the reading and what's coming next, such is the power of the author's storytelling ability.

In the first part of the book we learn that a university education with a major in economics was a bad choice for the author's university days and her work in government service in Australia was unfulfilling and uncreative. The job made her miserable. Having a charming, sprawling home did not make her happy. Acquiring possessions during her 14 years stint in government service added to her melancholy. Happiness, she learned, was not in acquiring goods, a house or any other external trappings.

Seeing Thailand and India through the eyes of a woman excited me. I enjoyed traveling with the author. Her insights told me things I did not know about Thailand and India. Her revelations about Indian culture sometimes shocked me.

The author has obviously revealed her writing talent in I Come Alone. I highly recommend it.

I recommend you read ‘I Come Alone’ be read in conjunction with ‘Rickety Buses’, the author’s companion volume. Here’s what this volume gives you for your money:
After she escaped an unfulfilling, materialistic western lifestyle she found freedom on the open road. If you’re feeling stuck in your current situation Michelle Coote shows you, by personal example that there are other options available to live life. The insights she gains from seeing Thailand (where I live) and India through Australian eyes are well worth the price of the book. Her first encounter with poverty, in the form of a rickshaw driver, and her response to it are touching and genuine. And episodes like her attempts to check into a brothel – to the alarmed horror of the proprietor – ice the cake.
