The Konkans by Tony D'Souza
The Konkans by Tony D'Souza
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Goan fiction, 24 Jan 2010
The title called out to me from off a Borders bookshelf and its the closest representation of Goan TCKs (although set in Mangalore and Chicago) that I've found so far! It made me laugh out loud cos I recognised the characters from my own family!

1.0 out of 5 stars One book wonder, 24 Jan 2010
Boring, don't do it. I gave it up a quarter of the book in. She obviously needed to fulfill her contract obligations and squeezed this one out.
Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-&hellip by Rolf Potts
6 of 6 people found the following review helpful
I found vagabonding a must-have for anyone who is a philosophical traveller ie someone who isn't a consumer of tourism as a product, but is in sync with the age-old philosophy of travel as a way of educating oneself. It tackles even your mentality about travelling by keeping an open mind, going with the flow and not worrying about the cost of travel or letting that limit what you want to see in this world. Also useful for those who need to learn how to travel light in life and find the confidence and motivation to do so. It includes some practicalities behind travelling like security issues, who to trust etc. which are useful for any kind of traveller and not just the philosophical one.
