Travel Tales: Getting Away With It — Or Almost!


Category: Tag:


THIS SERIES Over the last few decades, I’ve interviewed nearly 2,000 world travelers and adventurers. I am weaving the best of their nearly 10,000 fantastic travel tales into a psychology of travel as revealed by these very telling stories. These are travelers I’ve encountered on planes, trains, buses, ships, tours, safaris, and in campgrounds, bars, cafes, restaurants, and pubs. These courageous travelers have freely shared their most personal travel experiences, some good and wonderful and others even horrific and life-threatening, which I, in turn, get to share with you now through my True Travel Tales series.

THIS BOOK Is about the mischief or worse that travelers sometimes get away with doing themselves. Yes, they may perpetrate their own schemes on fellow travelers or even the locals themselves. Sometimes you succeed and sometimes you don’t. This book collects the curious along with some extraordinarily funny situations travelers sometimes get themselves into that they’d normally not at home. This book includes the true tales of what travelers try to get away with while free of the controls of their normal daily lives at home.
