We are not loved abroad and I see no reason to expect love, but our exported picture of ourselves is a disaster.
All amateur travellers have experienced horror journeys, long or short, sooner or later, one way or another. As a student of disaster, I note that we react alike to our tribulations: frayed and bitter at the time, proud afterwards. Nothing is better for self-esteem than survival.
The only aspect of our travels that is guaranteed to hold an audience is disaster.
Quote of the day
