David’s book chronicles his adventures as a world traveller in the turbulent 1960s, before smartphones, GPS, and shelves of guidebooks were available.

 

A 1960s Global Odyssey:
Around the World in 80 Months

David Skillan spent six and a half years backpacking around the world in the 1960s, working here and there, facing all kinds of challenges, and making friends wherever he went.

When he returned to England, he spent six months writing a book about his adventures. It was eventually published in September of 2021.
