We read Snowfed Waters last month for a bookclub discussion based in Kathmandu. My group and I agree it should be recommended for those intending to visit Nepal. Sonia is a perfect caricature of expatriate volunteers who venture out to live in foreign cultures well outside of their comfort zone. When a natural disaster struck the community and the local family she had learned to love, she gets over her self-absorption and phobias to help them survive. The humour with which the author describes the cultural difference is admirable.
Your Child Abroad: a travel health guide
“A lot of literature about travelling with children offers no more than elementary advice. One notable exception is Your Child Abroad. It’s definitely worth investing in”
The Sunday Times
How to Shit Around the World
Lots of really good tips on how to avoid getting sick while travelling, and what to do if (and when!) you do. Plus, many of the stories are laugh out loud funny in that gross, commiserating, I can't believe that happened, type of way. Really good and fast read to get a ton of tips for when you are travelling in less than sanitary conditions and how to stay healthy. I recommend it for all globe trotters!
