Summary (From the publisher):

Edited by Sarah Champion.

With seventeen original stories from acclaimed and bestselling authors, this collection puts a whole new perspective on the travel writing genre.

Delhi, Marseilles, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Jerusalem, Karachi, Nevada, Katmandu, Vienna, New Orleans...the characters in these stories (some true, most invented) cross the globe in search of escape and adventure from kibbutz to beach resort, from drug smuggling to football.

This is a book for anyone who has ever had a grim experience in a hotel room, backpacked in Asia, taken a last-minute package holiday or contracted a strange tropical disease. This book is not about elephant trekking in India, the anthropology of African tribes or the lost world of the Raj.
