Book Description

19 Aug 2004 The Companion Series
An unputdownable assortment of facts and quotes, anecdotes and tall tales about the history and mystery of international travel. No need to move from the comfort of your armchair in order to find out when the first passport was granted (in 1414!), in which country it is considered extremely rude to sit with the soles of your feet facing your companions, how to say hello in twenty different languages, which pilgrim route has a scallop shell as its symbol, how to master the Japanese art of packing a rucksack and which cities to avoid if you don't want to experience an earthquake.
