Review: All Inclusive
I have been subscribing to Swedish travel magazine Vagabond for more than a decade and Johan Tell used to be one of my favorite regular writers. He often wrote in a funny way, describing hilarious issues on the road.
This book is a collection of his small stories previously published in Vagabond. There are tales of singing Swedish child songs in a bazaar in Tehran, having telephone conversation with Ola Skinnarmo at the North Pole, visiting gay bars in Bangkok, finding Jimi Hendrix house in Essaouira and much much more.I met him once but was surprised at how different he was in real life. In fact, I wouldn’t have guessed he was the same person as the author in a million years. But the writing is however quite entertaining. Even if you have read most of the stories already in the paper magazine, I still recommend picking up a copy of the book for a concentrated dose of entertaining travel episodes.
