Meditating in caves in India; getting high on chocolate with a Cocoa Shaman in Guatemala; escaping from a house in Iran and sleeping in smelly hostels, are some of the many tales in Jody Kamali’s Über guide to travelling.

Jody Kamali delivers an animated guide to backpacking through his eight years of solo travelling around the globe. Bringing to life his experiences through characterisation and acute observation, he explores why people go travelling; the types of travellers you would meet; hostel etiquette; the pains of bus, train and airplane journeys; the highs and lows and much, much more.

So passionate about the backpack way of life, he recently took his wife on a three-month backpacking Honeymoon to South East Asia, instead of the run-of-the-mill Sandals Resort.

A – Z of Backpacking is Jody’s 7th Edinburgh Festival Fringe appearance alongside his physical comedy clown show ‘Livewire’. Jody had previously performed ‘Backpacker’ in 2007 and 2008. The sell-out shows were character led shows, Inspired by the response of the shows, Jody has always been always wanted to recreate the shows into a more honest, personal account of his travels, rather than told through ‘characters’.
