Ok, its not absolutely certain that you'll catch a fatal bout of food-poisoning or be banged up in jail as a drugs mule. But you might. Why would a sane person risk it? Holidays arent economical, they arent ecological, and theyre not much bloody fun. With travel tips, handy warnings and lists of stuff you can only do at home, Sod Abroad will help you kick the holiday habit. Instead, why not spend a fortnight on your sofa, in your home, watching your telly (/reading this book), and eating food that you can actually pronounce.

About the Author

Michael Moran is a nice enough chap of middling height who made a number of bearable, but not remotely successful records in the Eighties and Nineties. Since he learned to spell he was a regular contributor to Arena, The Word, and The Face. You may also have encountered his work in publications as diverse as Bizarre and New Woman. He is Web Correspondent of Times Online. He has co-authored three books: Rock and Pop Elevens, The Encyclopdia of Guilty Pleasures and Shopping While Drunk.

Reviews

'Michael Moran manages to be witty, offensive and completely aware that most of what he is peddling is piffle' -- Laurence Mackin, Irish Times 20080705 'Save the planet. Save money. Save your sanity. Stay home ! If you still need reasons to kick the vacation vice, Michael Moran (a tongue-in-cheek miserabilist for whom experience has evidently triumphed over optimism) hopes to convince you that British is Best.' -- The Times 20080614 'A litany of handy warnings and useful travel tips' -- TNT Magazine 20080609 'Full of things you can only do at home' -- Traveller 20080601
