When’s the bar open? It might be 9.30 am, but a Mojito by the pool goes down a treat. After all, this isn’t work, this is fun. Travel, first and foremost, is about having a laugh. No matter where you travel it is 5 o’clock somewhere so relax, and order another. Your lighthearted spirit and sense of fun are irresistible, you bring smiles and laughs wherever you go. When’s happy hour again…? 

 

CELEBRITY

If you were a celebrity adventurer you’d be … Anthony Bourdain!

 

Whether he was eating rancid sharks in Iceland or getting drunk with Vietnamese rice farmers, Anthony Bourdain knew how to have a good time when he traveled. 

 

Bourdain was working in a restaurant when a piece he wrote for The New Yorker turned into a book deal – and the resulting biography Kitchen Confidential was hugely successful. He was in his 40s when he began traveling the world when he teamed up with The Food Network to dine and drink his way around the globe. Talk about a dream job!

 

Just like Bourdain, your joy for people, food, and a good cocktail is contagious. Traveling is about having fun and a good laugh, and you are the ultimate travel companion.

 

You pick experiences by what looks most appetizing, expecting to be delighted, catered to, and satiated by what comes across your table.

Rule No. 5: No Sex on the Bus by Brian Thacker

Brian Thacker confesses all as he reveals the best (and worst) of 20 trips as a tour leader around Europe. He tells how he fed passengers horse meat spag bog, hamburgers made from breakfast cereal, and roosters' testicles. How he left a passenger standing by the side of a motorway in France for three hours in his underwear clutching a purple toothbrush and how, along the way, he lost his driver, his cook, his bus, 10 brightly coloured canal bikes, a large church and eventually his patience.
