The Unsavvy Traveler
Print
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. 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, naïve 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.

Hilarious, what fun is it if everything goes as planned? These short stories make my travel shoes ache to get on the road again. karen
