Now out from HarperPaperbacks, 101 Places Not To See Before You Die — by ASweetLife contributor Catherine Price — is a guide to some of the least appealing destinations and experiences in the world. But 101 Places Not To See Before You Die is also a backhanded tribute to what makes travel great: its tendency to put us in situations that we otherwise never would have experienced. With guest entries from writers like Michael Pollan, Nick Kristof, Mary Roach and A.J. Jacobs, 101 Places Not To See Before You Die is filled with stories and anecdotes of misadventure to which any seasoned traveler can relate. These are the experiences we tell to friends afterwards, the stories that earn us bragging rights, the reason why we’re willing to put up with the bed bugs and the food poisoning and set out to explore to the world.
Soon there will also be an iPhone/iPad app (101 worst places) that readers can use to send postcards to people from their own travels (both good and bad) and add their own entries to the list.
101 Places Not To See Before You Die is available on Amazon.
