Woo Hoo,My Brian Thacker Interview

Brian Thacker是一个旅行作家想到愚蠢的旅行想法,比如到许多没有导游手册的国家去实际行动。

He then turns these experiences into a number of Funny Travel Books which are a great read.

事实上,我有点嫉妒他——他旅行,写道:从他的书中获得收入,and then goes travelling again!!

One of his titles,‘Where's Wallis',使我最有趣的五本旅游书.

不管怎样,I'm on a roll with this interviewing stuff!在设法得分之后保罗 索威诺and彼得·摩尔for a chat,Brian's agreed to an interview after a sizeable deposit to his bank account (Check out his official site!).

Brian Thacker Yaks Away!!

不管怎样,here is theBrian Thackerinterview!!

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:嗨,布瑞恩,thanks so much for this opportunity to have a chat.You're travel writing is definitely skewed towards the humourous side of travel – which is why I'm drawn to it!讽刺的是,如果有什么有趣的事,因为它离真相如此之近!我想知道,what made you decide to become a travel writer,尤其是一个幽默的人??

Brian Thacker:当我读到我的第一本旅游书时,我是一个旅游领队,在欧洲各地拖拽着18-30个喝醉的澳大利亚人和新西兰人。是比尔·布莱森不在这里也不在那里我想当一名旅行作家会是一份多么好的工作。我不认为这是我会(或可能)做的事。事实上,但是当我回到澳大利亚的家里时,我浏览了我的旅行日志(我写下了所有的娱乐和游戏乘客,船员和当地人站起来,认为我可以(也应该!)写一本书。So,I wrote down a few stories and decided that I could do it then took four months off to write what would become my first book ‘第五条:公共汽车上禁止性行为'.幽默的弯曲部分很容易,因为在那些旅行中发生的事情很有趣。I couldn't make that shit up.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:在你最近的书中,‘睡懒觉',你在世界各地“沙发冲浪”,和许多有趣的人物呆在一起。你能消除一些旅行者的恐惧吗?他们认为他们可能会意外地用斧头杀人犯订一张沙发。我知道沙发冲浪是有制衡的,such as an eBay-like rating system,但你对这个相对较新的旅行现象有何看法??

Brian Thacker: 当我为写书旅行时,有140人,000 members on couchsurfing.com.  There is now close to two million with almost 20,每周有1000人加入。It keeps growing because it works,The whole reference thing is wonderful.If 20 people have vouched for someone then it's very unlikely that they won't be as good as their references say!!

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:像你自己一样我不时地喜欢这种奇怪的啤酒。I try beer(s) in every country that I go to,以及被困在食物里。I've even developed a啤酒指数我用一个国家每升啤酒的价格来衡量它的负担能力。I've even sampled纳米比亚塑料垃圾桶里的小米啤酒 —实际上很好!I was just wondering,trying to pick your favourite beer can be quite a taxing task,but what's the worst beer you've ever drank??

Brian Thacker: Oh,that's a hard one.I think I have two joint winners.The first is Stella beer from Egypt.我相信它是由尼罗河的水做成的,每一瓶的底部都有非常可疑的碎屑。And the other shocker is Tooheys New.它的味道很难吃,而且它们甚至不能用尼罗河的水做成。

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间: When I talked to Peter Moore,he mentioned that his travelling days have been somewhat transformed since the arrival of kids.How 亚博app官方下载about yourself?How has the addition of kids changed your travel habits?Are you planning to badger your kids into becoming travel addicts like ourselves??

Brian Thacker: Having a kid just changed the way I travel (and write).I do much shorter trips and if I have to travel longer then I split the trip up over a few months so that I'm not away from home too long.It does also have it's advantages,though.Because I work from home I can pick up my daughter from school and help out in class and I also get to hang out during school holidays.  And yes,我女儿是一个伟大的小旅行家——她五岁的时候已经上过50次航班了!!

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:I also asked Peter when was the specific time and place where he was bitten by the travel bug.Mine was in科索沃,Peter's was in Vanuatu.你的怎么亚博app官方下载样??

Brian Thacker: 我第一次“旅行”是在我24岁的时候,我做了一次欧洲之旅。From the moment I stepped on that plane I was hooked and by my first day in Frankfurt (where I just wandered around aimlessly) I was totally addicted.

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:I pissed myself laughing when I read 亚博app官方下载about you visiting the Tamworth Country Music Festival in New South Wales,澳大利亚The Naked Man Festival.尤其是当你听到有人唱着“我从来没有和一个丑陋的女人上床过,但我肯定醒来时听到了一些”这首歌的时候。多么伟大的标题啊!One of the joys/horrors of travelling is coming across the different types of music that is usually blasted through numerous sub-woofers in barely roadworthy vehicles.What was your worst combination of a) music and b) transport??

Brian Thacker: 最近我在东帝汶,坐了一辆有33人的16座公共汽车。就像一个夜总会。There was blaring distorted house music,烟雾弥漫,有人吐在我的鞋子上。

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:What was your scariest plane ride?我是在哈萨克斯坦做内部飞行的时候,我是飞机运输,,最好情况下,25岁(我喜欢Yakalov 40).I remember checking my bags in,going through security,然后我要自己把行李装上飞机!但机组人员意识到乘客太多,and not enough seats!This created havoc where the flight engineers unbolted some ‘business' class seats,and then they installed 5 extra rows with seats borrowed from another plane!This all happened while I was on the tarmac watching the whole fiasco!但我活着是为了讲述这个故事!!

Brian Thacker: On a flight from London to Agadir in Morocco (with Royal Air Maroc) we got off the plane and when we were waiting to get into the terminal my girlfriend asked ‘Why does the sign say Marrakesh?我们在错误的车站下车。When we ran back to the plane a platoon of army dudes with very large guns ran after us and began screaming and waving those very large guns into our faces.Now that was scary!!

旅行开始yabo88足彩时间:Do you have any crazy adventures planned for the near future??

Brian Thacker: I'm currently writing my new book,所以去年我有过疯狂的冒险经历。I travelled through South East Asia using the original1975 Lonely Planet ‘South East Asia on a Shoestring' as my only guidebook.It was a wonderful trip and will make for a wonderful read!!

The yabo88足彩Travel Tart:  Looking forward to that one coming out!嘿,I'm crazy too,and I'd like to tag along!😉 Thanks for your time and enjoy your travels!!

Another great interview – I love reading travel literature but always find myself picking up the ever so slightly pretentious titles,因此,最好介绍一些更幽默的选项。在他们的腰带下有50个航班的5yo的概念是难以置信的-荣誉是应得的。

多幸运的生活啊!Though,我现在知道这对很多人来说是可以实现的。我们只需要确定优先顺序,然后继续下去。如果旅行是你的激情,start doing it.Everything else,包括就业在内。You must take the risk if this is your aim in life.
