'This is the second bookshelf offering from Summersdale's heavy hitter, Jennifer Barclay and it's just as good as her debut title Meeting Mr Kim. Based on the notion of no regrets, The Traveller's Friend covers everything from Mark Twain flavoured inspiration to the crazy adventures of English men abroad. Intrepid explorers from all walks of life will be entertained by this collection of quotations, travel advice, trivia and then some. You could call it a rough guide to travel - of sorts.'St Christopher's Live Your Life e-zine
