Overview

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.

When the editors of Budget Travel magazine solicited readers for embarrassing vacation stories, the response was almost overwhelming. Apparently, families on the road encounter challenges that not even the good folk at Fodor's could have anticipated. A Stingray Bit My Nipple! collects 200 of the most hilarious true stories submitted into a single volume. Many of the anecdotes are accompanied by very funny photographs.

    TERRIFIC!!!

    I absolutely adored (and still adore) this terrific collection of hilarious travel stories!! These snippets come from a section in Budget Travel magazine, and it's always the first part I turn to when I get the magazine. The people who have submitted these short stories have great senses of humor...and are very brave, so they should be applauded! This book makes a great purchase for anyone who travels or is quite adventurous.
