Many moons ago, a foolhardy attempt to win a drunken bet resulted in Tony Hawks embarking on one of the most unforgettable experiences of his life.
Joined by his trusty travelling companion-cum-domestic appliance - i.e. his fridge - he found himself in the midst of a remarkable, inspirational and, at times, downright silly adventure.
His journey was chronicled in a book that would go on to be an international bestseller - "Round Ireland with a Fridge".
In "The Fridge-Hiker's Guide to Life", Tony looks back on what he learnt on his quixotic quest.
Namely: if all you have between birth and death is a journey, and if the journey is all we have, then wouldn't it be best to make it fun?
Such is the Philosophy of the Fridge.Reflecting on the many encounters he had along the way - occasionally fraught, frequently hilarious and sometimes poignant - and the colourful cast of characters he met, Tony realises that following mantras as simple as 'Do something silly' or 'Find the courage to follow your intuition' can make a huge difference in making life that little bit more enjoyable. Witty, charming and uplifting, "The Fridge-Hiker's Guide" will make you look at both life and your kitchen appliances in a whole new way...
