After saving his partner's life with a living liver donation, David Jedeikin meets with wrenching heartbreak: the relationship ends, and the couple go their separate ways. A self-described qprofessional nomadq who's lived in six cities in ten years, Jedeikin now decides to escape: he leaves behind career, friends -- even a budding new relationship -- to embark on a seven-month journey across the globe in search of wisdom and insight. What unfolds is a dazzling kaleidoscope of adventures. From the pagan altars of Petra to the party beaches of Thailand, Jedeikin encounters the expected -- Berlin sex clubs, Amsterdam weed, Mardi Gras drag queens -- and the not-so-expected -- from trendy nightspots in Singapore to Brazilian romance in Tokyo. He gains deeper understanding -- not only about his own life, but about his adopted homeland's place in the world; on gay life in the most open and most repressed locales; and on the role of a secularist in a planet awash in faith. Through it all, he delivers a unique blend of humor, introspection, and unquenchable curiosity.After saving his partnera#39;s life with a living liver donation, David Jedeikin meets with wrenching heartbreak: the relationship ends, and the couple go their separate ways.
