A more accurate title for this book would be The Manly Man's Guide to Travelling the World and Finding Beer. I actually think it's the perfect book for my husband and would grab his attention more with a title like that, and many like him. The first section should be subtitled Single, and the Second, Smitten.

I enjoyed this book, filled with travel quotes, a few poems, and many various tales and anecdotes from life on the road from places as close to home as Northern Michigan and Toronto, and as

This book is collection of short stories about the author's travels around the world. I enjoyed this very much, it was fun learning about different countries and cultures and how different they're lives are over there, I even found myself checking out some of the places he visited on google, that must have been a wonderful experience.

We also get to know the author, seems like a good guy with a good sense of humor who can makes friends easily everywhere he goes. I found myself laughin

Ed's book was a good read, fast and well read. I especially liked the Puerto Vallarta part as we travel
every year and relate to the bar scene. Also have read a few other of Ed's books. Keep up the books
Ed.

A Casual Traveler takes us on the author’s three year journey in snippets. We are taken to different parts of the world even motorcycle trips in the USA and Canada as we see the world through his eyes and the different cultures.

We find ourselves feeling like we are on this journey with him and experiencing these adventures with him. We are never sure who we will meet nor what where are headed. It makes us want to explore the world we live in even if
