9780061787768: 101 Places Not to See Before You Die

“I had no idea so many god-awful places exist in this world….Catherine Price is a hilarious guide to all that is sucky.”
 —Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: the Education of an Urban Farmer

 

Irreverent and compulsively readable, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die highlights desitinations we can all live without--like Jupiter's Worst Moon, an Outdoor Wedding During the 2021 Reemergence of the Great Eastern Cicada Brood, and fan hours at the Las Vegas Porn Convention--while reminding us why we're willing to put up with the bed bugs and the food poisoning and set out to explore the world.

From the Back Cover:

Because bad places make good stories

The Testicle Festival • Garbage City • Rush Hour on a Samoan Bus • Y our Boss's Bedroom • Ibiza on a Family Vacation • Stonehenge • The Road of Death • A North Korean Gulag • Fucking, Austria • And 92 More!

From the Grover Cleveland Service Area to the Beijing Museum of Tap Water to, of course, Euro Disney, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die brings you lively tales of the most ill-conceived museums, worst theme parks, and grossest Superfund sites that you'll ever have the pleasure of not visiting. Journalist Catherine Price travels the globe for stories of misadventure to which any seasoned traveler can relate—including guest entries from writers such as Nicholas Kristof, Mary Roach, Michael Pollan, Rebecca Solnit, and A. J. Jacobs—and along the way she discovers that the worst experiences are often the ones we'll never forget.
