What an awful book. Travellers tales. That is tales about the travellers not about the places they visit. A collection of student writing exercises all along the lines of 'aren't foreigners funny' or 'a funny thing happened to me on the way to the............whatever'.

I suppose it was to be expected from the Lonely Planet generation of follow-my-leader young travellers but a big disappointment nevertheless. ( )

A couple of great stories, a few average, a couple should have been left out all together. ( )

This was a fun collection of several authors' travel adventures and mishaps. It's nice to know that others have done dumber things while traveling than I have. And it's always good to experience danger, filth, and unpleasantness vicariously. ( )

Part travel guide, part essays. I like both. ( )
