No shitting in the toilet

by Peter Moore | 02 May 2005
PAPERBACK
Category: Travel Writing
Synopsis
No Shitting In The Toilet is named after a sign the author saw on the door of the lavatory at Jack's Cafe in Dali, Yunnan Province, in China. It's a sign that summed up Peter Moore's philosophy of travel: that it never quite turns out as you expect. You end up in situations that defy logic, rational thought and, quite often, general well-being - and yet you end up having a brilliant time, and not in spite of these situations, but because of them.;And this is also the philosophy behind this book, and the reason why this isn't really a normal travel guide. OK, it might look like one in its choice of topices and structure, but in fact it's quite the opposite. Instead of practical hints, it gives you impractical ones (How to avoid jet lag - avoid jets ...) and rather than tel you the best places to stay, it tells you the worst. Instead of celebrating transcendental travel experiences, it revels in the most demeaning ones (On checking the hygiene in restaurants: there are 2 things you don't really want to see in life. The first is your parents having sex. The second is the state of the kitchen in restaurants catering for backpackers.). But in that sense NSITT is more in touch with the way things really are. The world of NSITT is one where you're more likely to find a cockroach on your pillow than a complimentary mint, a world where you take your life in your own hands every time you get on a bus, a world where everything goes wrong, and you still end up loving every minute of it.;Based on Peter Moore's award-winning travel website, NSITT is not only hugely entertaining but also eminently practical, with advice on everything from Backpacking and Souvenirs, to Sex and Romance and Health and Eating (e.g. Some last words of advice for vegetarians: Hope you like rice...).
