If youâ€™ve ever fancied becoming a Tour Guide Leader, or are interested in travel, do read Maureen Mossâ€™ and Lee Follenderâ€™s book on the subject: â€œTHE TOUR GUIDE LIFE.â€
Itâ€™s fascinating. Beginning with â€œCosta Rican Beauty,â€ I was mentally thirty again, smiling at my group and alongside Maureen dispensing advice and guidance… But a warning, you do need oodles of patience, plus a knowledge of first aid, languages, and a dozen other subjects too vast to mention in a small space. For anyone keen to travel though; blessed with a strong stomach/constitution and lots of common sense, what an exciting way to earn a living!Â Talk of dazzling bougainvillea and dinner plate-sized hibiscus; with fish cooked in teriyaki and passion fruit for lunch appealed. Add exotic breakfasts, including Viagra alternative, untested: golden berries, in a Guadalupe Organic market, and you can understand the use of the word â€˜exotic.â€™
One journey, marked by talk of pineapples and macaws, mangoes and yellow breasted fly-catchers, was enticing. The miles fled by. The elegant boulevards of Madrid, a vision of the Prado pre 19th century art museumâ€¦Havana, Cuba and the hypnotic beat of music and dancing; the food, perhaps, best forgotten?!Â You could feel the humidity of the Amazon: the icy cold of Norway, and oh so much more.
The book covers, not just the treasures, architecture and natural joys of countries, but the aggravations when people have their passports stolen and plans go awry. Do treat yourself even if youâ€™re just an armchair traveler, for the book is well written with authority and much humour. (Kindle e-book Amazon).
