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.

In 2005, Joshua Berman and his bride, Sutay, canceled their wedding reception, diverted the money to a plane ticket fund, and applied to volunteer positions around the world. Crocodile Love recounts the mishaps, quests, and encounters of their round-the-world voluntourism honeymoon. Berman is a columnist for The Denver Post and author of five books about travel, including Moon Nicaragua, Moon Belize, and Colorado Camping. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, and Yoga Journal.
