Missing the Bus, Making the Connection
Tales and Tastes of Travel
The Patricia Marsden-Dole International Series
Odysseus knew the value of taking the long way home, and you should, too.
In Missing the Bus, Making the Connection,
T.A. Keenleyside eschews the rose-coloured reminiscences of the tourist for the insights of the seasoned traveller, an elusive category of person in an age when cheap flights, all-inclusive vacations, and a Starbucks on every corner make it easy to leave home without really leaving at all.
Part travel memoir, part cookbook, Missing the Bus, Making the Connection is a collection of timeless stories full of humour and adventure that deal with universal travel experiences and the small, unexpected moments that are often the highlight of a trip. For Keenleyside, the voyage doesn't always turn out as planned, but the memories, and the meals, are something to savour over and over again.
