Shari loves to travel, as long as she doesn't have to spend the entire time in an airport or a chilly hotel conference room. Somewhere along the line, she picked up a love of travel essay books ... especially the more humorous kind.
In A Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson
Bill Bryson never ceases to amuse me, whether he's rambling around the Cotswalds or trying not to break limbs (his own and those of Mother Nature) while trekking the Appalachian Trail. This particular book is a wild ride across Australia. From exploring white, sandy beaches to coexisting with toxic caterpillars, he takes you places you'd never think of going ... and often not want to go in the first place!
