Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
One of the things I love most about our ‘True Stories’ section (and by extension, this book) is that readers are so willing to laugh at themselves-they send in what are sometimes very embarrassing stories, because we all know that that’s life, especially when you travel.” –Erik Torkells, editor, Budget Travel
From the French-kissing giraffe to the Coke-drinking camel, Budget Travel’s “True Stories” feature proves that life when traveling is indeed stranger and funnier than fiction.
Collected by Erik Torkells, editor of Budget Travel magazine, these tales of adventuresome calamity and hilarity are an irresistible read. Over 200 true stories are included.
Stories have been submitted by Budget Travel readers and many feature real and hilarious vacation photographs from their travels. From the couple in Belize who had a chicken lay an egg in their bed while at an eco resort, to the traveler who accidentally set her hair on fire while lighting a prayer candle, this book proves that the best memories come from moments when your trip is less than postcard-perfect.
