Planes, Trains, & Broken Strings

The Laughable but True Story of an Impoverished Indie-Musician Traveling the World

After losing his job, girlfriend, and life as he knew it, Tom decided to live out his lifelong dream of traveling the world. He turned to his guitar for income, sold most of his worldly possessions, and recruited two friends. The three of them set out with big dreams of grandeur adventures, only to realize a short way along that they didn’t have nearly enough money to support themselves. Soon they were sleeping under bridges, hitchhiking with drug dealers, befriending prostitutes, living as homeless persons, hopping trains, and finding all kinds of trouble to get into.

Follow the hilarious true story of travel-gone-wrong, debauchery, and adventure as a broke indie-musician tries to find his place in the world, with the help of a cast of colorful characters he meets along the way.

Reader Reviews from Amazon and Audible

“The only time I was able to stop reading this book is when I was laughing too hard to continue.”

Amazon review

“Truly a great story! It made me laugh out loud, a lot. It also pulled my heart strings- I may or may not have shed a tear. I recommend for anyone.”

Amazon Review

“Loved hearing about all the crazy stories and predicaments that came out of 3 guys just packing up and deciding to travel the world as vagabonds. I wish there was a sequel, but I think they’ve been through enough!”

Audible Review

“Listen, I am NOT a person who likes to read. I had to force myself to put this book down at night to go to bed. We’ll worth the time to read it!!”
