Reviews

'A fitting way to celebrate this intrepid publisher's 40th anniversary' Wanderlust Magazine 'A tongue-in-cheek collection covering disasters that have happened to travel writers - but did not make it into the official guidebooks.' Bookseller 'These stories are not the stuff travel brochures are made of, and are all the truer for it.' National Geographic Traveller 'One of the most delightful travel books to be published in a generation. It reminds us that the joy of travel lies in the thrill of discovery when things, thankfully, don't go to plan.' Travel Africa Magazine
