Last Trout in Venice: The Far-Flung Escapades of an Accidental Adventurer

Doug Lansky, Author Travelers' Tales Guides $14.95 (288p) ISBN 978-1-885211-63-7
Unflappable NPR correspondent Doug Lansky (ed., There's No Toilet Paper on the Road Less Traveled) intrepidly ventured from the peak of Kilimanjaro to Berlin's erotic Kit Kat Club to Sweden's 100 guest-capacity Ice Hotel (rebuilt each winter just north of the Arctic Circle) to a Texas cattle auction where the auctioneers ""talk more and say less than a room full of presidential candidates"" and lived to write Last Trout in Venice: The Far-Flung Escapades of an Accidental Adventurer. Some of his destinations are truly strange and, evidently for good reason, truly obscure though readers will definitely get a laugh from Lansky's tenure (one day) as a bellboy in Jules' Undersea Lodge (scuba access only capacity: four guests), 20 feet underwater.
