World Travel: An Irreverent Guide
I miss Anthony Bourdain. I miss his voiceovers. He was such a great writer when he was writing for himself to speak.
This book is useless to me, but I still loved it. It’s ostensibly a travel guide. There’s a chapter for each country Tony went to in any of his three shows: No Reservations, The Layover, and Parts Unknown (which, let’s face it, were probably all the same show). Each chapter is broken down by city, and each city chapter gives you some travel advise like what airport to fly into and how to get around.
You, like me, will read this book for the blue text. The text in blue are Tony’s words from the show. You’ll skim over stupid stuff and go right to the blue text, and you will read it in Tony’s voice, and you will love it. You’ll nail the inflections, the emotions, and you’ll be sad about it.
Just like me.
It was worth every second.
