Route number 11 – Harry Whitewolf – Review

Route Number 11 by Harry Whitewolf

An easy reading book that made me reflect on my own life and our mission on this Earth.

After ending his heartbreaking relationship, the main character (the Tourist) is having an unusual trip to Argentina with no plans and no time limit. There are some strange “adventures” he has, lots of alcohol, some chicas around and few friends.

I find this story very inspiring, but also devastating (because of the alcohol and girls).

 

Here are some quotes I like and would love to share:

“No planes y no tiempo limitado” (No plans. No time limit.)

“… children are closer to God and the Universe than any grown ups are. So we need to remember to look at the world through the eyes of the child as well.”

“If you have confidence and humor, conversation is actually pretty easy, whatever your level of the language may be.”

“Money is fear. If you have it, you’ll worry about keeping it and if you’re spending it on the right things. If you haven’t got much, you’ll worry about having enough. If you haven’t got any, you’ll worry about everything.”

“Worry about anything, and you’re slowly making it happen.”

“If you don’t like it, leave! Simple.”

“… you don’t need to go anywhere to find yourself. That should be pretty clear by the fact that’s it’s you you’re looking for.”

“What else is life about, if not love in all its forms?”

“Meeting new people is just remembering faces of God we’ve forgotten.”

“Any holidayer knows that two weeks abroad always goes very quickly, and yet at the same time it feels like you’ve been away for ever.”

“Every place contains its own time.”

“Time is relevant to how we use it.”
