Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every traveler has a horror story to tell: lost luggage, bad weather, illness or worse. In this lively collection of travel disaster tales, Lonely Planet writers share their worst moments of life on the road.

From Kenya to Sri Lanka, from Brazil to Finland, from the Australian outback to India, these travelers encounter hurricanes, road accidents, secret police and nasty parasites. Reading these funny and frightening stories from the dark side of the road will make you think twice about a career as a travel writer!

Synopsis:

Lonely Planet founder, Tony Wheeler, joins other authors in a collection of travel disaster stories. Mishaps include a rampaging elephant in Sri Lanka and a drunken shoot-out in Tibet.
