Tropical = Paradise, right? Wrong! Australian travel writer Stu Lloyd simply wanted to enjoy seamless sunshine, frolic in azure waters with dusky maidens and drink chilled beers in exotic climes-all at the publisher's expense. Too much to ask? Apparently so... In this riotous romp through the Cook Islands, Southeast Asia, India, Costa Rica, Mexico and South Africa, Stu often finds more Purgatory than Paradise, more Hell than Heaven. But none of this curbs his passion for The Tropics. Or cold beer: We were so delightfully, deliriously drunk, Hunter S. Thompson could've been our designated driver. According to Publisher's Weekly: Lloyd is a proud drinker and an unapologetic sexist. When Lloyd does get out of the bar, he offers vivid, compelling descriptions of the sites he encounters, particularly India.
