Sinossi

Practical Safe Travel Tips and Travel Health Advice

Planning on travelling but worried about getting sick? Or maybe you're happy to travel but your parents are convinced that you will end up robbed, raped, and

left bleeding in a ditch and suffering from malaria?

So you want foolproof safe travel solutions?

Sorry, the world does not come with guarantees - and the author is not offering any. Instead, blending humour and experience, she tries to separate the sensational news headlines from the reality of travel.

This is a not a thick book, it's a concise guide which addresses how to avoid dying out there, interspersed with stories from the author's own experience. The author hasn't died yet, so her advice must be worth something.

Why You Shouldn't Buy This Book

Will this book replace your doctor's advice? Nope.

Is it useful for a high-profile exec worried about the threat of kidnap? Ahhh, no.

Will it entertain and inform the average inexperienced traveller? That's the aim!

Yup this is a Non-Boring Travel Guide. If you don't have a sense of humour, I suggest you might just want to skip right on by. This is written by a traveller not a medical professional, or even an ex-Special Services member. I'm just a gal, who travels ... a lot. After 30 years I've come down with the odd disease while travelling, and faced death on several occasions, but, to date, I've survived. Must be doing something right.

The Non-Boring Safe Travel Guide even has some useful information:

  • why visiting your favourite medical professional before you leave home can be a great investment;
  • mosquitoes, and why you should learn to hate them;
  • the number one cause of death of American tourists overseas: hint, its not a disease;
  • surviving local transport;
  • how to avoid being a thief magnet on the street;
  • fool-proof way to avoid having your valuables stolen overseas.
  • The world is really a much, much safer place than the local news media would have you believe. This realistic guide is designed to inform and encourage you to get out there and really enjoy it.

    L'autore

    Elisabeth has had a number of careers - only the latest of which is "writer", she has also been a geologist and a computer geek, but travel has always been Elisabeth's passion. Her first trip was a family cruise to the Canary Islands and Morocco, but she doesn't remember much, she was only four! The longest trip of her childhood was when her family emigrated from England to New Zealand, by sea, in the days when long-haul was six weeks on a boat, not 24 hours on a plane. Aged seven, she fell in love with travel on that trip, although, to this day she still gets sea-sick! Over the next 40-plus years Elisabeth has traveled to every continent except Antarctica, and that's on the list. She has traveled solo and with friends. She's traveled with a partner, stayed in accommodation that the fleas shunned, and luxury hotels. The invention of the Internet meant Elisabeth could finally be her own travel agent. These days Elisabeth works in a back bedroom, in New Zealand's capital city, Wellington, with easy access to the airport and the world. Elisabeth is a writer, developer and promoter of websites about various topics - but travel is still her passion - and that's why she developed her Non-Boring Travel Guides.

    5.0 su 5 stelle I'll keep referring to this 1 agosto 2012
    Di Allie R. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

    This book was the perfect antidote for my travel-fear. The husband and I have just been bit with the travel bug, but so far I haven't had the courage to go on any "real" trips. I'm the "planner/organizer" of us two, and I'm not a very experienced traveller. So warnings about pickpockets in Rome and other travel hazards had me so worried, that I would up postponing my Europe trip, and thinking that I wouldn't be able to do it by myself and would need to book a tour.

    This book has given me renewed confidence. I love the writer's reassuring tone - as she says, the rare bad incidents make the news, and most tourists have a very fun and safe time. I found the tips on avoiding being a theft/crime target the most useful. Most of the other tips I'd read or heard of from friends seemed strange and impractical to me, but Elisabeth's advice is both practical and realistic.
    The book has different sections on different kinds of safety - so I'll refer back to the bits on beaches and surf when I go on a beach holiday, and I'll re-read her advice on mosquitos before going to any tropical destination.

    If you are considering going on holiday, I strongly recommend getting this book. Much of the advice is about preparation, so you'll want to know it ahead of time. Even if you're at the airport, or just landed, go through the writer's tips and your stay will be more enjoyable, and you'll learn what to do and what not to do next time.

    Reading the book is like talking to a favorite experienced cousin. Hopefully I'll be booking my Euro-trip in a few months time :)

    5.0 su 5 stelle Finally, Realistic Travel Advice About Staying Safe 30 luglio 2012
    Di Ms T. Edwards - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
    Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
    This book can cause the reader to become overwrought with feelings of longingness to see far away exotic locations, a yearning to feel sand between your toes, a desire to throw caution to the wind and try that food you can't pronounce but looks, oh so, delectable.

    Yes my friends, once all fears of travel are no longer an issue (because this book addresses each one of them truthfully and realistically) you will start to talk Italian to your children, wear Hula skirts to work, and pack your suitcase for a trip to the grocery store (you never know).

    You'll want to travel without worry and have a fabulous time.

    You have been warned.

    5.0 su 5 stelle sound advise, easy to read 13 agosto 2012
    Di Mei - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

    This book of 929 locations can easily be read in one evening. There are a lot of tips in it that will be useful if when you are going to travel abroad, and it is written in such a way that it is a pleasure to read. Even if you are an experienced traveller you will still find useful tips in it. I really recommend this book to anyone who has plans to travel.

    There are just a few little comments I want to make: they are about the paragraph 'Most Useful Languages to Learn' (at location 337) where the writer mentions 2 languages that are handy to learn:

    -the author puts Spanish in the first place and Bahasa Indonesian/Malaysian at the second. Personally I would put English in the first place! It is true that not everybody in the world speaks English, but English is the most widespread language (if you count people who speak English as their first language and people who speak -at least some- English as a foreign language) in the world. It is believed over 1,000,000,000 people have at least a basic knowledge of English.

    -and what languages are the most useful to learn will depend on to which places you are going to travel. If you go to the Middle East I advise you to learn the alphabet so that you can read roadsigns and streetnames, this is really very handy. With a map (in a language you can read) and just being able to read the Arabic letters you will be able to find your way around in any city in the Arabspeaking world.

    -if you go to China then just learning the sings for 'women's toilet', 'men's toilet', 'entrance' and 'exit' will come in handy.

    -There may be things you want to be able to communicate (things like: 'no meat, I am a vegetarian' or 'not spicy'), you can ask a local to teach you say those words and write it down for you on a piece of paper, so you can show it (but rememeber not everybody can read, especially in the developing world the illitaracy rates are shocking).

    5.0 su 5 stelle Common sense prevails..... 15 agosto 2012
    Di Marjan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

    I have travelled heaps although possibly in a different fashion than Elisabeth has and did not expect to find many new things in this book. There were a few "ooh" moments but what I like most is that it is all common sense put together in one place. All the things you really know but never thought about now put in one place with Elisabeth's own experience woven in. The informal style and personal anecdotes make it an easy read. It certainly does not put me off traveling, I want to again, preferably NOW!!!
    The Post Travel Blues section was certainly recognisable, I am suffering from it all the time :-)
    But for now I will do some armchair travelling through Elisabeth's books!

    Certainly recommended for the fun read and you might actually pick something useful up without realising! Looking forward to more books!

    I really enjoyed this book. Elisabeth has some sound advice for the intrepid single traveler. She clearly has walked the walk and shares information you need to know before you set out on your first trip.

    Twenty years ago I used to do some solo traveling and many of the tips Elisabeth shares I would like to have known then!

    Great book, can't wait for her next.
