Travel Book Tuesday

I am starting a new segment to this blog, Travel Book Tuesdays, It is no secret that I read a lot so I can save money for trips, so it should not be a surprise I read a lot of travel books too.

First, let me start of by saying the reason this book caught my eye is because my husband and I are planning a Round the World trip, and the idea of free travel caught my eye.

The reason this book lost a star is because it is not really a how to, but more a story of how he did it.

Once you realize that this is not in fact a how-to but a travel memoir, the book becomes highly entertaining.

Wigge is a journalist from Germany, that decides he wants to go to “The end of the world” and wants to do it for free, so he sets off on an adventure taking him from Germany to Antarctica without a penny to his name.

He has many zany stories along the way that had me cracking up from the very beginning and in fact this book kept me up all night and is the reason I am so tired at work today.

I love travel memoirs, so this book was a fast great read for me.

I just think the title should be a little different, I mean sure you could do the same things he did to travel for free, but personally his style is not my style, but that still makes this book a great fun read.

I give this book 4 stars.

I knew going into this part of the series the books would have more erotica than the first 5 books. while I am not the biggest fan of erotica, it doesn’t necessarily bother me in Anita Blake.

This book had a lot of story lines, that all came together in a very crazy, exotic way in the very end.

One warning I will give about this book, it is very sexually violent. VERY. In fact there were a few times I had to stop reading because it was pretty rough. Then again that is how rape is. It is not something that should be sugar coated. It is brutal and violent.

Overall I still can’t get enough of Anita Blake, and I will still continue to read this series.

I am not getting too much into the plot because the plot was intense, but it was very fast paced which resulted in this book being a true page turner.

Tabyana Beach

After zip lining we went to a beach for a little beach break. There was an approaching storm so I was slightly concerned we would not be able to spend the entire time at the beach before heading back. The beach break was at Tabyana Beach.

The beach was very touristy, but great all at the same time. The water is crystal clear, the surrounding forests green and lush. I did not get into the water, because I didn’t feel like changing into my swim suit, but I did walk around the beach to take pictures.

It was beautiful, maybe one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. It was even more breathtaking as the storm was moving in.

Have you ever noticed how beaches my storms mesmerizing?
