Its NOT a Holiday! The A – Z Guide to Group Travel

Some of you may be familiar with Andy who drove our Istanbul to Beijing overland expedition in 2012.  He and tour leader-extraordinaire Kirsty, have written a book ‘It’s NOT a Holiday!  The A-Z Guide to Group Travel’ based on their years of experience working on the road.

It's NOT a Holiday! A - Z Guide to Group TravelIt’s got some great reviews (including one from Tony Wheeler of Lonely Planet).  A couple of us at Oasis HQ have read it (you could hear the chuckles and ‘I can’t believe they actually wrote that!’ during lunch time) and loved it.  It’s laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes quite outrageous and anyone who has done an overland trip or any kind of group travel will be able to relate to some of the stories Andy and Kirsty tell.

The very beginning gives you a handy list of questions to find out if you’re really cut out for group travel and follows to introduce 20 stereotypical characters you might find amongst your group – you’re bound to recognise a few!  The A to Z takes you from Activities and Adaptors to Zebras and Zero with everything you can think of in between.
