The Thong Also Rises - Further Misadventures from Funny Women on the Road!
by Jennifer Leo
Travelers' Tales
ISBN 1-932361-24-3
Published September 2005 - Paperback - 224 pages - $14.95

Funny travel stories from funny female travellers/writers.  Jennifer Leo has put together another volume of hilarious travel stories by women - some travelling alone, some with a friend, some with a husband.  I liked this as you can read a story or two, have a chuckle, and save the rest for when you need a pick-me-up.  I loved the two Aussie women in Thailand, the woman and her husband buying pills in Mexico, the lady naming herself in China, and the couple who locked their keys in their car in the Outback - complete with Aussie English!  I love travel but I am not as adventurous as these women - far from it.  I admire their inquisitive spirit and look up to them for their choices in destinations.  I'm not that brave.  These stories really make for a good laugh and are worth remembering at your next party.  See my review on Jennifer's other book, Sand In My Bra.
Conclusion - Very funny, especially for those of us who travel.
