I read this book immediately after finishing "Sand in My Bra" and that was a mistake. Although I found it slightly better, I've always compared the reading of two alike anthologies back to back to a cup of hot chocolate - sweet and tasty at the beginning, getting slightly boring after a few sips, and finally seeing gritty dregs at the bottom. I believe the scientific explanation for that is too much of a good thing.

That said, I enjoyed the book. The entries selected by the editor did not include the usual "what are these doing in here?" fillers. They were all amusing in their own way. Notice that I said amusing, not gut-busting funny, as one reviewer wrote. Each writer's contribution had its own special charm and was extremely well written.

Why am I so luke warm? Like the hot chocolate, I have probably over endulged and become disinterested. My suggestion would be to read each book, "Bra" and "Panties", separately with some time between. If that is done, I think you'll find each of them charming, amusing, and inspirational. Yes, they inspire you to get out there, have your own experiences, rationalize and find the humor in them, and then share them. These women have done that better than most can do which makes their stories worth chuckling over.

I've rated this book 4-stars because of the material selection and the writing skills that are demonstrated. Being funny is in the eye of the beholder so lay off the hot chocolate and go for a Long Island ice-tea while reading "Panties."

If you want to read about the travel misadventures of several very talented writers, I would highly recommend this book. They are presented in very short vignettes each unrelated to the other but share the common travel theme of misadventure. If you have ever traveled, the strangest things seem to happen spontaneously and this book is full of these types of anecdotes. You can be in Germany getting a Turkish bath (hamam) from Hassan, daydreaming about using him as your personal slave back home, or find your way to a house in Istanbul where a stranger allows you to stay with your Australian traveling companion until you find out that it is occupied by members of the Turkish mafia who won't let you escape. Other stories vary from getting waxed in New York to answering natures call in Yukatan at a public restroom where you had to squat on the rim of the toilet to preserve personal sanitation. You also had to board the bus that was leaving within three minutes. There are a total of 31 stories that kept me captivated and often laughing aloud.

There was only 1 story that actually got me to chuckle. The rest just didn't strike my funny bone but they were interesting to read about. If you like reading travel adventures...this is a good book to pick up. Funny women....not even close.

This is a fun beach book. Lots of stories. Lots of women travel stories. Some are good. Some are great. Some are superb.

Ok, so the only reason I'm reading this book (and the 3rd one in the series) is because they were lent to me and I was told I have to read them. Otherwise, after the first book in this series, Sand in My Bra, I would have just stopped as I did not enjoy it. This one, while a little better, still wasn't that great.

The whole premise of these books is that they are funny travel narratives written by women. This means that these stories take place all over the world and even in the United States for different destinations. They can range from stories about air travel, to mixing with the locals, to other embarrassing happenstances. A great example would be the story in here about the woman who loves to get Chinese Hair Washes. After reading about how amazing these are, and cheap, for what equals out to the best massage of your life, I now have a goal to go to China sometime and try this out. There's also the women whose family wandered onto the wrong part of the beach while traveling and yet another who had some interesting experiences with a Japanese subway line.

But these are supposed to be humorous anecdotes and sadly, the vast majority were not only not funny, but not even entertaining. And since it is also supposed to be a travel themed book, many of these events could have happened anywhere and the place wasn't even relevant, a problem the first book had as well. The stories mainly focus around the authors themselves so there is no good chance to really hear about any of the locals or sometimes even the place they are visiting. It kind of makes traveling a moot point when you're more worried about your underwear than the scenery.

The writing is ok for some, terrible for others, with a few gleaming standouts. The humor didn't come across well and a lot of it was pretty wordy for the short story format, especially when it was an uninteresting topic to begin with. There are a lot of curse words and descriptions of undergarments and body parts, so if this is not your thing, steer clear. I think the only thing that really skeeved me out though was the story of the lady with a bug in her ear. I think I might have nightmares now. Luckily though, for as much as I didn't enjoy reading this book, it was the short story format that kept me from throwing it across the room. You never had to stick with one story for very long.

Not the best and there are certainly funnier books out there. There are also better travel books out there so both categories could be improved on. Hopefully the 3rd book in the series is a little better.

I hold great respect for ladies that travel, especially the ones who travel to Third World countries. The toilets of developing countries are well...less than ideal. It is a lot easier to laugh at having roach in your ear in Moorea, a day after it happens, what a way to spend a honeymoon! How about a trip to the Great Wall of China with a two mile hike to the gondola ride, only to find out you will have to slide down a mountain to the parking lot, as the cable just broke. This book is loaded with tales of similar travel misfortunes, the joy of travel and the agony of travel from around the world

It is the mis-adventures of travel that bring upon the best stories, be they hurricanes or diarrhea. So have a seat in the comfort of your living room and share these hilarious tales of travel fortune and misfortune, the best part is you don't even need to take along your Imodium.
