Synopsis

Travels with Mensans by Neil Matthews, Barry Needoff

What do Mongolians smuggle on board the Trans-Siberian Express? Where is Paradise and why is it cursed? How do you confuse a mugger in Brazil? In TRAVELS WITH MENSANS, you can find out. You'll also get an insider's perspective on what it feels like to sail a tall ship around the Canaries, to be a guest at a family wedding in Pakistan and to visit some of the world's most beautiful and strangest places. This special collection of travel writing, by members of the high IQ society Mensa, remembers bygone worlds and considers the nature of travel memories, the pros and cons of travelling alone and the effects of tourists on the places they visit. TRAVELS WITH MENSANS -- travel writing to make you think. Net proceeds from the sale of this book go to Medecins Sans Frontieres.
