A message via Mr. Graham Markel:
I love that traveler-writer Rachel Robert’s struggles with her “FOMS” (Fear Of Missing Something); in “Beetle Bedlam,” she bargains emotionally with herself about whether to continue on a trecherous Croatian mountain road in a barely functional, glittery purple VW Beetle. I also couldn’t stop reading Brad Wetzler’saccount of hanging with hobbyist hobos and eating too much sausage in the Czech Republic, and was touched by Graham Markel’s slightly disturbing story of cliff jumping in Thailand. I haven’t read every entry, because I’m saving some for later.
