If they could it do it all over again, they might not... so it's a good thing they can't, because then we wouldn’t hear about Marrit Ingman’s disastrous honeymoon in Maui; Sunset editor Allison Aves’s eco-escapades in Costa Rica, where she meddled in the love unions of nesting turtles, catching eggs as they exited surprised terrapins; or Philadelphia Magazine’s Amy Donahue's ascetic retreat to a Berkshires spa, which sent her scrambling for black-market sources of sugar and fat.

The dirty little secret that in of travel writing is that in order for a story to be funny something bad has to happen. Editor Kate Chynoweth is well aware of this fact and has selected tales with terrible twists written with wit and charm that demonstrate the point. The writing in this collection is a cut above the average collection of women's travel tales that I have read. However, not all of these tales are amusing. I was horrified by the Erica J. Green's story about an ant phobia brought to life in Africa. But, most are quite lighthearted. I found some of the one-liners in A Useful and Comprehensive Travel Dictionary for Girls by Buzzy Jackson laugh out loud funny. www.lindaballouauthor.com
