Traveling Curmudgeon: Irreverent Notes, Quotes and Anecdotes on Dismal Destinations, Excess Baggage, the Full Upright Position and Other Reasons Not to Go There by Jon Winokur

On the theory that an account of a pleasant journey is best not thrust upon friends and strangers, that a disaster makes for a more entertaining story, here is a gathering of quotes, commentary, and anecdotes about the travails of travel, the downright strangeness of foreign places, and rueful encounters on the road. Abetted by a parade of well-known curmudgeons, Jon Winokur offers a thousand reasons not to go there. The Traveling Curmudgeon proves that travel and all things related to going from here to there — destinations, the locals, the tourists, the food, the accommodations, and, oh my god, the souvenirs we drag home — are all grist for a very entertaining mill.
