This expanded edition of The Unsavvy Traveler adds three new tales of tangled travel to the humorous collection that debuted in 2001. Braving injury and danger, conflict and discomfort, naÃ¯ve faux pas and mistranslations, these women discover that an unexpected kink in plans can lead to wacky situations: being chased by an itinerant mob in Beijing; trying to outrun a rising river in Malaysia; eating unidentifiable delicacies; and sleeping on a fast-food restaurant booth, on hard jungle ground, or on a swaying fishing schooner.
With wry humor and unabashed honesty, these stories convey the unbreakable spirit of the willing adventurer.
About: Women travel for myriad reasons: They venture out to escape the routine of daily existence; to encounter fascinating new people and places; to enrich their lives; to embrace new cultures; and to explore; but sometimes none of this works out.
About: The Unsavvy Traveller is a collection of the comic and catheric tales of more than 25 women travellers, including a soggy bicyclist who takes shelter in an Irish pub, only to become the evening's inebriated musical entertainment; a staunch hiker who battles a bear with a bag of M and a flustered tourist who tries to figure out Japan's curious bathroom etiquette.
