Read in June, 2011

The writer visits 4 world-famous destinations that he for whatever reason has been dreading ever visiting--faces his fears sort of or just his don't-understand-the-type type of thing as well to better understand himself and for some adventure. They are 1) Congo 2) India 3) Mexico City 4) Orlando.

Cleverly written and entertaining, I loved it. All travel books reveal things about ourselves and people--such as, travel destinations are unreliable because people are unreliable--people have good and bad experiences at the same destinations all the time.
