“When Cultures Clash on the Road Less Travelled. This beautifully printed book features 29 travel stories, 160 photographs, 16 countries. And funny, too! The more I travel, the more I realize how much “baggage” I carry around with me. I don’t mean the roll-on-wheels kind of luggage, but our mentally embedded, didn’t know I had this, hard-to-shake, culturally ingrained behaviors we all assume are universal. Of courses, we know that spoken languages differ from country to country. And many societies also use different alphabets, which makes communication even trickier. But, as I discovered, gestures, body language, customs, habits and assumptions are also variable by location. No wonder misunderstandings are inevitable when we’re in someone else’s territory.
Fortunately adventures that arise from these clashes in culture also make for the most interesting travel stories. In spite of all the difference, what’s amazing is how similar we all are. We’re all human. And it is ouf common humanity that helps us bridge the culture gaps and makes us laugh at our own follies.
In the book “No Speaka Da Language” I have assembled a collection of anecdotes and mindbroadening experiences that are sure to tickle your funny bone.
Available in beautiful glossy soft cover or ebook.
