The best laid plans kept me reading and chuckling late into the night. So who reads travelogues half the night? Well, me obviously... but this one was highly entertaining. I'm sure you'll enjoy it even if you don't feel the need to track down a single elusive animal possibly lurking in an obscure corner of Western Canada or eat oversized meals of dubious quality. Read it - if only for the opportunity to extend your vocabulary in unexpected ways!!
