A good debut!,

This review is from: Along the Elephant's Trunk: A journey over land and sea from Singapore to Northern Thailand and beyond (Kindle Edition)
In his first attempt at travel writing Martin Drake asks the reader to accompany him and his wife Donna through a trip through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand riding in buses, bicycles, tuk tuks and trucks. Fortified by cold beer and warm pizza and always searching for the perfect "British" curry he describes in a gently cynical but always humorous tone their undramatic adventures which anybody who has backpacked through Asia will relate to. The only downside is that we don't get to hear more about the lovely Donna who sounds like a much more interesting person than Martin!
