The magazine's working philosophy is to focus on value, while inspiring "vacations for real people.

One of the things I love most about our 'True Stories' section (and by extension, this book) is that readers are so willing to laugh at themselves-they send in what are sometimes very embarrassing stories, because we all know that that's life, especially when you travel." --Erik Torkells, editor, Budget TravelFrom the French-kissing giraffe to the Coke-drinking camel, Budget Travel's "True Stories" feature proves that life when traveling is indeed stranger and funnier than fiction.Collected by Erik Torkells, editor of Budget Travel magazine, these tales of adventuresome calamity and hilarity are an irresistible read.

I "purchased" this book while it was free a little while back. I've never been a big traveler, though I've spent many, many hours browsing for vacations that might interest me. I thought I might appreciate some funny stories about other people's travels, so I downloaded this. In the end, it's an ok book but doesn't necessarily make me feel more inclined to travel.

The book is a compilation of stories from the magazine "Budget Travels". That means that these "stories" are actually just three or four sentence paragraphs - or in some cases, just a photo with a blurb to make sure you understand the humor or irony of the snapshot. The photos are clear enough on the Kindle, but I'm sure they'd be better in color. Given that these tales were previously in a magazine, they are well edited, though I didn't see any sort of organizational approach in the book. What I mean is that there are no chapters so you can't just read the stories about travels on a cruise ship or in Nepal. They're all mixed up.

In the end, the stories are not quite hilarious... some are ironic, some funny, some just sort of strange (guess you had to be there...). If you love those "you'll never guess what happened to me while I was travelling" stories, you might enjoy this. For me, it just makes me hope I never end up in a book like this.

This "book" was not what I was expecting. While I certainly didn't expect gallant prose, I had hoped to read something a little more substantial than just bits and blurbs of bad experiences. Most of the stories were not very humorous to me, although a few did make me laugh out loud. One after the other it just seemed to be the telling of tourists who'd poorly planned their vacations to begin with, or were being the "ugly American" (i.e. forcing one's self into a stranger's conversation just to have a picture).

On the plus side, this is the first book I've read on my Kindle that had photos, and I was pleasantly surprised by how viewable most of them turned out.

Reading other reviews, it seems this title was offered free at one point. I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you're just desperate for something to read. I know now not to buy any further compilations from this particular company.

Knights from Bernin
This is a fun little book and it made me laugh out loud several times. I've read Budget Travel off and on for years, and the humorous personal anecdotes are one of my favorite parts. People share the silly things they've done, and just weird and funny things they've seen or experienced by being in the right place at the right time. I even called my mom and read her a couuple of the funny stories.

My only criticism of this book is with the Kindle edition. There are a lot of photos in the book, and they don't show all that great on the Kindle. Maybe on the device with the bigger screen they'd be better. Still, don't let that stop you from taking advantage of the free offer that's currently available.

I found some of the stories to be downright funny & yes I did find myself laughing out loud now and then. The price was right, I got it for free. I didn't expect much, but it was so much more entertaining than I guessed it would be. These are short paragraphs of vacation experiences along with photos. My only complaint: the photos did not show well on the Kindle, they were just too small & grainy. I liked reading this in small doses - in line at the store, waiting for my friend to arrive, while I was stuck in traffic - you get the picture. It was easy to pick up & continue where I left off reading.

This book is an interesting collection of travel stories from all over the world. A quick read, maybe better as a coffee table book for an occasional anecdote. The pics should be bigger to see what the story refers to.

I downloaded this ebook because it was free (always a good thing), the title caught my eye (as if it WOULDN'T) and after investigating the title, I discovered it was excerpts and stories from "Budget Travel" magazine which is one of my faves.
I have enjoyed reading this so much. I saw very few repeats from the magazine-but that is probably because I have only reading it for a couple of years. The stories are all very short which makes it easy to read when you are short on time.

Enjoyed this collection of humorous incidents submitted from travelers all over the world. From a young man's introduction to "mouse jerky" (Americans really do need to get out more)to a vacuum with a lei to monkeys who decorate vacationers, there was plenty of variety. Felt like we were laughing together at the little (and larger) bumps that are part and parcel of traveling. Read it on the Kindle for PC but I think I'd prefer it on paper.

The book was fun. It was a mildy humorous, light read. These so-called "stories" are literally one-paragraph summaries of ackward situations from people traveling. If you're looking for something in-depth, this may not be for you but if you're simply looking for a quick laugh and something to pass the time, this book is for you.
