The travel guide for when you’ve really lost it
If you’re sick of the brochure hype. If you suspect the folk on Getaway aren’t quite telling you the whole story. If you think the whole travel industry takes itself way too seriously, you’ll love No Shitting in the Toilet.
NSITT, the book, is a celebration of all that’s perverse about travel. Instead of practical hints it gives you impractical ones. In that sense, NSITT is more in touch with the way things really are.
Dali, China: Contrary to popular opinion, the title No Shitting in the Toilet is not entirely gratuitious. It is in fact named after a sign I saw on the toilet door at Jack’s Cafe in Dali in China.
To me it summed up everything that I loves about travel – it’s illogical, irrational and perverse. Plus I figured people would feel compelled to find out what it was all about.
