Summary

It was supposed to be a normal city break...

...it ended in the strangest places in the world. 

They shouldn't have tear gassed best-selling (bald) author Adam Fletcher. It ruined his supposedly normal holiday in Istanbul, made him curious, and began a quest to visit places everyone else is trying to escape from, and tourists don't normally go to. 

In this hilarious travel memoir, he'll enter a blizzard in China armed with only biscuits; pose as a scientist to sneak into Chernobyl; be chased by Croatian police boats en route to Liberland (the world's newest country); stalk the Sheriff of Transnistria (its most corrupt); become a reluctant diving board star in a North Korean water park, and much more. 

Accompanied by his eccentric German girlfriend, Annett, this adventure to 10 unusual destinations will also put their sanity, safety, and relationship in jeopardy. 

Packed full of interesting people (including the Devil incarnate and someone having their mind remotely controlled), weird locations, and British humor, Don't Go There takes you on an unforgettable journey with an award-winning travel writer.

Very enjoyable listen, highly recommended

Multiple fascinating tales from around the world. The story of the first couple of trips felt ok, and I felt that the narrator was a bit over the top. The rest of the book was very good; the stories had depth, warmth, wit and authenticity. And the narration was excellent too.

An interesting story of self discovery

The book felt like a collection of short stories so I didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to. I like the authors style and will read another book by him. So well read by the narrator that it felt as if he was the author. Not for me but I’d recommend to a friend.
