Desert Drive: A zine about crossing the Sahara

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
This is the story of a 2011/2012 road trip from Spain to Gambia, part of the Plymouth-Banjul Banger Rally. In it, I talk about all kinds of stuff: Western Sahara separatism, the Chinese mafia in Nouakchott and the slippery 'fixers' we dealt with along the way. There's also a poo story. I don't talk all that much about cars because I don't understand them, but I do talk about how I tried to learn.

About Phiona Stanley

Mostly I write about travel. By day, I'm an academic. This means I spend time thinking, writing, and talking about language learning, transnationalism, critical theory, ethnography, positionality, grounded theory, teacher education, and a few other bits and bobs.

But then when I come home I write fun stuff - like the stuff that's on here - and it's not academic, not at all. Instead, it's mostly about travel (did I mention that?) But I do use a few big words every now and again, just to keep you on your tippy toes. You can thank me later.

Review by: Selena Brown on Sep. 20, 2012 :
There were parts in this e-book that made me want to travel more outside the U.S. and there were parts that made me want to never leave the U.S....ever! Either way, I admire the author immensely for her what's-the-worst-that-could-happen travel philosophy.

Thoroughly enjoyed this read. It's a great example of how travel can be used to better know thyself, and Stanley is a pleasure to know in print.
