Baggage: Confessions of a Globe-Trotting Hypochondriac
“Everyone who travels has had jitters about things that could go wrong because, well, they can. Maybe you love to travel, but it still makes you nervous. Maybe you are still too nervous to travel. The world-hopping writer Jeremy Hance has written this perfect book to show you that you’re not alone in your travel fears, that there are ways to get over it before it gets over you—and that in the end a lot of what we fear is pretty damn funny. Read. Laugh. Breathe.”Carl Safina, Bestselling Author of Becoming Wild; How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace
