"'This infinitely handy, irreverent bullet-pointed code of conduct (and misconduct) abroad revels in a kind of anti-Wish You Were Here ethos. Expect the worse, then turn to this to find ideas, answers and, best of all, comfort in the sod's law of holiday-going'" (The Scotsman)
"'Seasoned travellers will find plenty to relate to in this witty and observant book, especially the gentle dig at some of the more conventional guides'" (Lancashire Evening Post)
"'It's not a run-of-the-mill travel book, oh no, but a book no traveller can do without'" (Virginstudent.com)
"'Definitely a book to take with you as an accompaniment to a detailed travel guide, or even better, a humorous reminder of your trip when you get back home...well worth a read' " (Outland Website) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Being an Aussie Peter Moore sometimes likes to make fun of the Americans he has encountered on his travels ... a pleasure to read ;-)
This book is the ideal gift for anyone who likes to travel, or who has travelled a lot.

Much of the later parts of the book seem like filler. Everybody likes Top 10 lists, and i think Peter played on that to fill out where he'd trailed off from the point of the book. It's a shame because it does seems quite promising at times, delving with great comic insight into the real hopes and sometimes delusions of budget travellers. It suddenly seems to move away from that subject later on, in favour of being funny with Top 10 lists and his personal memories. That's where it loses it's original edge. They say that you cannot have the pleasure without the pain. Peter describes the pain very well. But he does'nt talk about the pleasure, which is the reward for all those trials. He briefly mentions that at the start. But makes it sound like it's just a kind of maschochism that some travellers thrive on, and that is what keeps him travelling. Rather than you being rewarded with something much deeper for the trials you sometimes face along the way. I think it is very easy to make it sound as though you dont feel anything more higher than the mundane,when you travel.
So in that sense, i think Peter tried to portray himself as "Just an ordinary Bloke" a bit too much. He must have felt more than that, to have travelled so much. But he tries to deny it with "down to earth Aussie humour". I've travelled independently on a budget in about 22 countries now. So i can recognize much that goes on in the book. But i also know that Peter must have experienced the romance and deep feelings that travel can bring. That's the other side to travel which is'nt touched upon in this book. Aussie humour always tries to knock romance off it's perch and "Be one of the Lads". Ever macho and down to earth,it fears being seen as possibly affected by deeper emotions of travel. And in that way, at times i felt Peter was scared to perhaps tell both sides of the travelling story?,for fear of being seen as "A bloody Poof" (insert Aussie accent here). But the romance of travel is the other side of the coin, and it exists.
