Description

Braving injury and danger, conflict and discomfort, naive faux pas and mistranslations, the women in this book discover that an unexpected kink in plans can lead to wacky situations. With humour and honesty, these stories convey the unbreakable spirit of the willing adventurer.

Préface
Thirty bitingly funny essays respond to the question: "What happens when trips go wrong?"

Texte du rabat

This is a collection of the comic and cathartic tales by more than 25 women travelers. These women are hilarious casualties of tourism, whether they're breezy, independent trekkers who discover the necessity of preparation far too late, or impeccable travelers suddenly beset by the mischievous whims of destiny.

Résumé
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 traveller adds three new tales of tangled travel to the humorous collection that debuted in 2001. Braving injury and danger, conflict and discomfort, naive 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 humour and unabashed honesty, these stories convey the unbreakable spirit of the willing adventurer.
