Not your typical travel blog

Want recommendations on local restaurants?  Hidden gems?  Iconic ruins?

Not even your dad cares about all your beach photos…

Look somewhere else.

The idea for Why Not to Travel was born in a bar near Lisbon.  We wanted to hear about people’s travel misfortunes… so when I travel, I look for those stories.  Edited for clarity, these recounts are kept as close as possible to the original recording.

Topics range from natural disasters, inebriated incidents, trouble with the law, cultural faux pas, and … fellow travelers. These experiences are told to me first hand in a casual setting, which are recorded and transcribed.  Names are changed to protect the innocent (and guilty).
