Description of this Book

A unique travel diary that you won't be able to put down.

Travelling mainly alone, author Lynley Smith takes you with her on a journey to Israel, Hungary, Colombia, Kenya, China, United Kingdom, Australia and the USA. She describes 'with a healthy helping of dry humour' her fascinating interactions with the locals, who are just living life--and the challenges in getting there.

Travelling on buses, planes, trains, a 'bungbung' (a 3-wheeled motorbike converted into a taxi) and, of course, her own two feet, Lynley finds herself in some very strange (and scary) places. You are never too sure whether or not she is going to be arrested or kidnapped or suffer "Delhi belly" from eating cicadas and pigs ears.

The stories are all undergirded by the feeling that there was always someone 'watching out for her', wherever she went. And it's just as well!

Globetrotting on a Shoestring is funny, informative, nostalgic, and a little quirky. A must-read for everyone who would like to travel, or wants to reminisce.
