The first in a series of books collecting travel and humor pieces the author wrote for a fabulously well-regarded newspaper column ("fabulously well-regarded" by his two dozen readers, anyway) while traveling overseas and teaching college-level English classes onboard US Navy ships. "Vol 1: Wanderer", contains 28 essays and 24 photographs spanning the Middle East (the short span: Bahrain and Dubai); Italy (Trieste, Naples, and Sardinia); and the Mediterranean in general (Palma de Mallorca, and, er, Sardinia again!); oh, and Turkey, too! Thrill as he rides a camel! Gasp as he avoids immolation in a volcano (by not, y'know, falling in)! Be filled with the joy of travel. Approx. 25,000 words / 135 print pages.
