Travel Book Review by Julie Royce

The Perfect Book for Your Carry-On

A few days ago, my friend, Stacey Gustafson, gave me a copy of Not Your Mother’s Book…On OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATravel.  Stacey knows I write a monthly column for Wandering Educators and she thought I might enjoy the book when I head out on my next travel adventure. I couldn’t wait that long. Instead of packing the book for a month-long trip to the New England states, I devoured it in one evening, enjoying the entertaining, true-life stories so much that I had to share it with my followers at WE.

It’s the perfect take-along for any trip. To start, you can squeeze in a couple of short stories while waiting through security at the airport. Each time you are relegated to a line—and every trip brings dozens of those—you can savor another amusing tale. Instead of fuming over wasted time, you’ll find the queue moves faster, and your mood improves with each step. The format is perfect for reading in short spurts or longer intervals, and molds itself to your travel pleasure.

The volume On Travel includes chapter titles like “Keep an Open Mind,” “Anchors Away!,” “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” and “Wake-Up Call.” The humor will keep you turning pages and smiling until the last word.

Not Your Mother's Book...On TravelOf course, I first flipped to Stacey Gustafson’s story, “War in Skies.” My giggling brought my husband into the den to see what was causing the ruckus. Stacey shared her hilarious strategies to survive flying. Hoping for a couple of skinny folks to share her row on the plane, she is kicked out of the seat she coveted, and finds herself plopped next to Big Guy, the doppelganger of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. She endures the behemoth invading her itsy-bitsy amount of space for the entire flight. The ending brought a belly laugh. I realized I’d seen that fellow before.
