A Toast to Travel: ... but it's not always lovely (Paperback)
Most travel writing flatters destinations and how to get there - but not this book. While Fraser Beath McEwing loves travel, he has a wicked eye for absurdities, stuff-ups and grim realities, all narrated by a supreme humorist. Beginning in 2020 with a trip to India, he goes back to 2013, through many countries and odd places.
He tells of the good, the bad and the ugly, laced with history and quirky facts, and he regularly reports frankly on the hotel toasters he encounters at breakfast times.
If you want to take a flying carpet ride to discover perfection and beauty, this is not for you.
But if you want to laugh out loud, welcome to A Toast to Travel.
