One can travel around the world and one will certainly collect his share of experiences – but then can one write about his travels in an engaging and a humorous way? The answer is a resounding yes when it comes to author Albert Podell who made it his mission to visit every single country in the world.
Author, adventurer, former editor of Playboy and explorer – the titles mount up for Albert – this is his latest book about his life wandering the planet. With 50 years of travel under his belt he has visited every country on earth Albert has lived a life of adventure more than many people combined; these are his adventures.
Even hard core travelers don’t find themselves in some of the predicaments that befall Albert. Take for instance the time in Bangladesh when he had a noose around his neck and was minutes from being hung by a mob crowd only to be saved by some quick thinking and a messy incident and someone who showed up with impeccable timing. OR the time he was jailed in Baghdad or almost drowned in Costa Rica. His stories are endless and intriguing.
The final chapter answers a few common questions that a traveler of this stature often receives. It is a short chapter but and important one, especially his answer to, “Of all you saw, what most concerns you?”
