“If humor is the spice of life, allow me to pass the paprika,” – Author Ben Pastore
Let’s face it—not all who enjoy the concept of travel have the will or circumstances to do so. Even if you count yourself among those brave enough to venture out into the big wide world, it’s likely you’re only willing to do so if you have access to indoor plumbing. If that rings true in your case, then this book is for you.
You Can Keep Your Adventure, Just Leave Me the Toilet Paper is a travel guide specifically designed for the armchair traveler and aspiring globetrotter. Far from being a dry recitation of facts, this book was conceived to inspire and instruct as well as entertain. Combining destination reviews, travel tips and original photos, author and travel expert Ben Pastore will have you grinning your way across all seven continents in this witty compilation that’s two parts travel guide, one part laughs. Here’s a taste of what’s inside:
Section 1 – Introduction to Wanderlust Here you’ll learn how to find the right travel inspiration in A Picture is Worth a Thousand Miles; enhance your experience in Maximization and Other Made-Up Travel Terms; and find out how to keep track of the countries you’ve visited in You Know Where You Are by Who Comes to Arrest You.
Section 2 – The Witty Traveler’s Guide to the Planet This destination guidebook will take you on a lighthearted tour of over 40 locales in some 30 countries around the globe. Experience the joy of African animal encounters in When A Cheetah Licks Your Head, Try Not to Laugh; visit the world’s greatest monument in Why the Taj Mahal Will Land Your Husband in Hot Water; and discover why New Zealand is the most beautiful place ever in The Best Spot on Earth? Can You Repeat the Question?
Section 3 – Looting the Planet – A Collection of Lessons Taken from the World In this highly practical section you’ll delve into how to make your travel memories last forever, along with valuable insider tips in chapters such as Suck the Juice Out of Your Next Vacation, How to Make Your Travel Photos So Interesting That People Won’t Paint Their Toenails, and When on Tour, Don’t Sit Next to the Jerk.
