Summary

What the heck is so funny about travel?

Traveling is not for the timid of heart. What can go wrong often does, as twenty-six road warriors relate in this book. Whether it's driving across Canada at Christmastime or journeying to remote corners of the planet, you'll alternately laugh, cringe, giggle and feel inspired by these writers, and the often bizarre and extraordinary circumstances they find themselves in.
