Postcards from Elsewhere PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Postcards from Elsewhere free pdf This is a collection of travel writing about trips to strange and unusual places, and encounters with odd and eccentric people.The writing is often amusing and always informative. The destinations are not beyond the reach of the ordinary traveller and the characters encountered are those the average reader might also hope to run into. But places like Ullungdo off the coast of Korea is hardly a magnet for tourists, especially when the only attractions are seaweed, squid and candy. But Graham went there. As he did to Graceland Too, an Elvis museum in a private home in north Mississippi run by a Presley obsessive. Some of the stories have been published previously in the NZ HERALD and the LISTENER but the majority of the 20 stories are unpublished.
