Have u read Come Back Alive, by Robert Pelton.
If so, what did u think about it?
Next time I am in an English language country, I will buy it.

Munich book shops dont supply it, but if one does do u know the name and location of it?
I can order it at any of shops, but that would involve a shipping fee. They cant tell me how much that fee would be, until I come to collect the book. Sounds dodgy!!!

You could try & order it off

Never heard of the book - whats it about?

It is about a guy who travelled everywhere.
War or any type of disasters did not put him off.
Quite incredible.
He wrote a book, about how to survive a visit to the worlds most dangerous destinations. That book is Come Back Alive. I cant wait to get my hands on it. I will buy it in Ireland, when I go there in December, if I cant get it here, without having to pay a shipping fee. He wrote some other books too.

Here is his website.

If u read it first, tell me what it is like.
I am wondering if it will encourage me to do more adventurous travelling, or scare the hell out of me.
Last time I was in Berlin, I met an American guy. He was around 58 years old. He found himself in the middle of the 7 day war in Syria in 1968 and then the Poppy war in Turkey shortly after that. His story was amazing, but I would not like to have it happen to me.
