Planning on travelling but worried about getting sick? Or maybe you're happy to travel but your parents are convinced that you will end up robbed, raped, and left bleeding in a ditch and suffering from malaria?
So you want foolproof safe travel solutions? Sorry, the world does not come with guarantees - and the author is not offering any. Instead, blending humour and experience, she tries to separate the sensational news headlines from the reality of travel.
This is a not a heavy book (it's an e-book after all), it's a concise guide which addresses how to avoid dying out there, interspersed with stories from the author's own experience. The author hasn't died yet, so her advice must be worth something.
Why You Shouldn't Buy This Book
Will this book replace your doctor's advice? Nope. Is it useful for a high-profile exec worried about the threat of kidnap? Ahhh, no. Will it entertain and inform the average inexperienced traveller? That's the aim!
This book won't give you all the answers, and your parents will probably still worry. But its a start for anyone looking for safe travel tips and travel health advice.
Yup this is a Non-Boring Travel Guide. If you don't have a sense of humour, I suggest you might just want to skip right on by. This is written by a traveller not a medical professional, or even an ex-Special Services member. I'm just a gal, who travels ... a lot. After 30 years I've come down with the odd disease while travelling, and faced death on several occasions, but, to date, I've survived. Must be doing something right.
The Non-Boring Safe Travel Guide even has some useful information:
- why visiting your favourite medical professional before you leave home can be a great investment;
- mosquitoes, and why you should learn to hate them;
- the number one cause of death of American tourists overseas: hint, its not a disease;
- surviving local transport;
- how to avoid being a thief magnet on the street;
- fool-proof way to avoid having your valuables stolen overseas.
The world is really a much, much safer place than the local news media would have you believe. This realistic guide is designed to inform and encourage you to get out there and really enjoy it.
