Seeing the World My Way follows Tony Giles' journey of hedonism and thrill-seeking adventure as he travels across North America, Asia and Australasia. Full of drama, danger and discovery, this fascinating travel biography is a young blind man's view of the world as he sets out to achieve his dream, dealing with disability whilst living life to the limit.

From bungee jumping in New Zealand to booze filled nights out in New Orleans, Seeing the World My Way is a no-holds-barred account that is certainly not for the faint hearted. Travel the world in a whole new way with Tony Giles' frank, honest and exhilarating romp through one adrenaline-fuelled experience after another.

Tony Giles is a fiercely independent solo traveller who backpacks around the world despite being blind and 80 percent deaf. “The book contains basic history and geography of the countries visited while mainly concentrating on an adventurous story of drink and adrenalin activities,” says Tony. 'Seeing the World My Way' is a frank, honest and self-deprecating story of – in Tony’s own words – one “guy’s global adventures”. His no-holds-barred style of writing features plenty of drama, danger and discovery as he traverses cities, islands and wilderness, moving from one thrill-seeking enterprise to the next.
