Mark Twain, the Globetrotter: Complete Travel Books, Memoirs & Anecdotes (Illustrated Edition): A Tramp Abroad, The Innocents Abroad, Roughing It, Old ... an Idle Excursion, With Author's Biography

Though best known for his adventure novels and humorous stories, Twain was a passionate world traveler and he recorded his journeys in several travel books which were all very popular at the time:

"The Innocents Abroad" humorously chronicles Twain's "Great Pleasure Excursion" on board the chartered vessel Quaker City through Europe and the Holy Land in 1867.

"Roughing It" follows the travels of young Mark Twain through the Wild West during the years 1861-1867. The book illustrates many of Twain's early adventures, including a visit to Salt Lake City, gold and silver prospecting, real-estate speculation and a journey to the Kingdom of Hawaii.

"Old Times on the Mississippi" is a short account of Twain's experiences as a cub pilot, learning the Mississippi river.

"A Tramp Abroad" details Twain's journey through central and southern Europe with his friend. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them.

"Life on the Mississippi" is a memoir by Mark Twain of his days as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River before the American Civil War, recounting his trip along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans after the War.

"Following the Equator" - In an attempt to extricate himself from debt, Twain undertook a tour of the British Empire in 1895, a route chosen to provide numerous opportunities for lectures in English. The book is a social commentary, critical of racism towards Blacks, Asians, and Indigenous groups.

"Some Rambling Notes of an Idle Excursion" presents a series of stories about a trip that Twain and some friends took to Bermuda from New York City.

"Chapters from my Autobiography" comprises a rambling collection of anecdotes and ruminations of Mark Twain, assembled during his life.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer.

Electric Angels and Pink Bikies: An Expatriate Life

Moving away from home, leaving the nest, could be the beginning of a voyage that ends in a faraway country we would not have even considered when we set out--until we got there and discovered its secrets, its culture, its undiscovered paradises. Half a lifetime ago, the author ended his voyage of discovery in the Philippines, a country with one foot in the world of fairies and spirits, and where every event has an unusual twist, whether wedding or funeral, kidnapping or vasectomy, getting a driver's license or getting a haircut. There are fascinating destinations far from the beaten track and a vibrant music scene that is everywhere present, even in the operating theater. Typhoons and earthquakes add a different kind of excitement. These events and experiences, sometimes comic or tragic, always compelling, are described herein.

Found, Lost, Paved and Sunk: Paradise

Where is paradise on earth? Somewhere far from the maddening crowds, the cold, the politics, work. Found, Lost, Paved and Sunk: Paradise traces the history of paradise seekers from Raleigh to Heyerdahl and describes present day tropical paradises and adventurers and their fate. Discover the location of paradise from the point of view of animals and plants; learn about the mechanics of living in paradise, the fate of paradises under colonialism and climate change; and what it all really means.

The book begins with a whirlwind tour of paradises found, both fictional and nonfictional; and provides some surprisingly candid accounts of paradises found, through the eyes of early navigators like Bligh, Cook La Perouse. The environmental and biological factors that make the ultimate paradise are considered; and lost and paved paradises are described from the viewpoints of administrators, adventurers, artists, authors, explorers, hermits, missionaries and native populations. An account of the effects of climate change and sea level rise leads to a discussion of the inevitability of paradises sunk in the not so distant future.

The book is punctuated with tongue-in-cheek tips for paradise seekers and is extensively referenced with about 200 sources, from exploits of early explorers and travelers to the writings of prominent philosophers.

Tokyo Budget

The only downside to Tokyo is the cost. Consistently the world's most expensive city, if you are not careful, Tokyo can bankrupt you overnight!

This guide has been written by a former resident of Tokyo who spent four months exploring as much as possible (and occasionally working). I've visited all the must see spots, eaten too much sushi, shopped on Harajuku street, and spent many Sundays people watching in the park! I decided not to climb mount Fuji but instead rode the world's tallest roller coaster (that offers great views of Fuji-san)! And I wrote this guide to point you in the right direction - where to stay, what to visit and how to have a great holiday without breaking the bank!

The trick to conquering Tokyo lies in organization! Google Maps is amazing and will get you from station to station (it even tells you what platform and the time of the train)! If you don't have a smart phone invest in a good map and a notebook - write down places and stations you want to go and show this to station attendants. Attendants might not speak English but they can read English and will put you on the correct train! Bring walking shoes and walk the distances between short train stops. Each train journey is at least 190Yen ($2) and this soon adds up. Walking in Tokyo is enjoyable, and you will see much more of the city! Finally keep an eye on the time. The last trains run around midnight and after that you will need to wait until 5am - pull an all-nighter or prepare for a long walk back to your hotel - taxis are super expensive and will easily set you back $40-$80 for a short ride!

The Expat's Pajamas: Barcelona

A memoir from the author of "No Roads Lead to Rome" and "Aqueduct to Nowhere."

A wise person observed that visiting a new place for a day makes you an expert but the longer you stay, the less you seem to know. As you integrate into new surroundings, the exotic eventually becomes familiar and what was once quirky becomes the new normal, though you may never quite fit in.

From 2000 to 2005, I lived with my family in Sant Cugat, a Catalan village on the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain. These were interesting and formative years to live, work, and learn abroad.

On a global scale, the hope of the new millennium and the promise of peace didn't last. The new century barely arrived before the world was convulsed with terror that soon turned to war. According to the daily headlines, the planet had become dangerous place.

As we went about our daily lives, we found people were drawing closer, not pulling apart. Traveling extensively through Europe and North Africa, we never felt unsafe or unwelcome.

In putting together this brief collection, I chose to leave world's upheavals and politics aside in order focus on a few odd milestones, minor upsets, and gentle bumps along the road one travels from tourist to resident.

Most of these articles were written and published while avoiding work on my novel, "No Roads Lead to Rome." The first novel and sequel, "Aqueduct to Nowhere," take place in Spain in 123 A.D., a time not unlike the present.
