The perfect trip, where nothing goes wrong, is surely not the memorable trip, which is where everything goes wrong and one lives to tell the tale — and laugh about it. This collection captures the wackiest and most bizarre experiences of well-known writers whose travels have taken a detour. Stories include escorting a monkey to the movies in Cameroon, attempting to use a high-tech Italian toilet, feasting on deep-fried potato bugs in Burma, and Dave Barry vainly trying to learn more Japanese than how to order a beer.
