Sand in My Bra and Other Misadventures: Funny Women Write from the Road

By Jennifer Leo, editor

Flexibility and a sense of humor are two of the most important things to bring with you every time you travel. Things will go wrong, or at least not according to plan. Flexibility will let you roll with the punches and not let your valuable travel time be ruined. A sense of humor lets you turn your mishaps into great travel stories.

Sand in My Bra... features 28 stories by female authors covering the range of the travel experience, from pre-departure jitters to transportation phobias to bad travel photos to show off back home. The stories are all fairly short, making this a good choice for when you have to fight for a few minutes of alone time to curl up with a book and indulge in some vicarious adventure.

Most of the stories do offer a healthy dose of "thank heavens it didn't happen to me" schadenfreude, but only one or two actually prompted an out loud chuckle. One of the best things you may take from reading Sand in My Bra... is the knowledge that when you have your next travel mishap, it could have been worse. And no matter how bad something may seem at the time, it's seldom that big a disaster – and it'll make a great story to tell your friends once you get home.
