Product description


The New York Times describes It's Only the Himalayas as the tale of "a Canadian waitress who swears like a fishwife goes on holiday to Boracay."

(New York Times 2016-06-01)

“An honest, funny and fresh take about backpacking, which most of us who have hit the backpackers’ trail can relate to. Ideal for a light read for those long bus or train trips.” —Backpackers


“An entertaining look at those post-graduation backpacking trips so many of us have taken . . . Despite some moments that may alarm parents, this is a charming book that inspires the spirit of adventure and longing to travel no matter your age.” —y.a.m. magazine


“S. Bedford brings a fresh voice to travel writing, one that is funny, observant, and original.” —Outpost


The UK's World of Cruising magazine includes Bedford's memoir as one of six must pack travel reads.


It's Only the Himalayas is one of Bustle's Eleven Books to Kick off Your Summer of Travel


Online travel magazine Out of Town interviews Bedford about lessons she's learned on the road, which destinations are still on her bucket list, and her favourite experiences in the Philippines.


"A hilarious travelogue for the social media generation. . ." -Publishers Weekly


Huffington Post Travel suggests you pack It's Only the Himalayas in your carryon this summer.


Bedford shares her three most ridiculous moments while backpacking with The Poor Traveler blog.


About the Author

S. Bedford is an indie backpacker who has accidentally locked herself in the bathroom in over fifty countries. She calls Toronto, Canada home base, and It's Only the Himalayas is her first book.
