We wanted to go to hot, intense places together, to cities where open markets breathed that sweaty, fish-gutty, trash-burning smell that clings to travelers’ memories forever. We had each whiffed it before, this odor of deep travel, but it was something else to embark as husband and wife to seek it together. This is my first narrative travel book, a collection of tales recounting the mishaps, quests, and encounters of our round-the-world voluntourism honeymoon.
