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.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

If you are familiar with the magazine Budget Travel, and enjoy the reader stories you find it the end of the magazine, you will find this a Hoot!
Funny, true stories - some with reader's personal photo's. You will find yourself chuckling and perhaps remembering your own adventures.
This would be a great gift for anyone who loves to travel.
