Abroad, Broke & Busted

Travellers’ Tales from Around the World - edited and compiled by Matt Towner

As my next overseas trip gets closer, and my excitement builds, in the back of my mind lurks the little voice that whispers to me about things that could go wrong.

We hear many horror stories about some terrible things that have happened while people are overseas, from motoring accidents, falls while mountain climbing, pick pockets, losing all your cards and identification, and while these are terrible thoughts, there can often be a lighter side to what can be very scary situations.

Abroad, Broke & Busted is a compilation of 14 amazing travellers’ tales assembled and edited by author Matt Towner. Matt graduated from university in Brisbane, Australia in 1989 with a B.A. in Journalism. Afterwards, he set out to explore the world where he was inspired to write about travelling tales through the people he met along the way.

The tales in Abroad, Broke & Busted all provide unique and personal insights into life’s gains and losses whilst abroad—some are happy or sad, others soft or hard. While some adventurers end up in jail in a third world country, others find themselves nearly dead in a deep dark jungle—yet all somehow defy the odds – even the traveller who found herself in a French forest with wild boars!

All with a sense of adventure and a sense of humour—as readers learn—things will not always go their way in each exciting journey told.

Anyone who loves to travel, loves an adventure, loves a laugh or dreams of all three will love this easy to read, often humorous and light hearted book.

Abroad, Broke & Busted – RRP $29.99 is available at all good book stores and
