'Abroad is the most dangerous place in the world. Eat the wrong food, sleep in the wrong bed (or in the right bed with the wrong person), walk in the wrong jungle, bathe in the wrong sea, or doze on the wrong beach and you're as near as dead. Still, there are people who insist on crossing the water, and for them there is no better book than this.'--The Sunday Times
