A brilliant collection of light reading which anyone can relate to . Iam sure every family will have a 'Up in the Air' equivalent, all set and ready for a holiday and then something else happens.My ex boss at the my old tea company and his family left for their European holiday recently. I could see the parents descend to the levels of Kiara and Aryan. Theplas packed and a suitcase full of ready to cook food, I lent them a pocket camera, reduced their designer clothes for posing to save them extra baggage and advised them against pickpockets and drug peddlers. Hilarious but come to think of it, every family can relate to it. My mom would even carry her bedsheet and pillow to a five star hotel.
This and every other story here are stories that make us look back fondly at our lives when they were less complicated and holidays and vacations were so memorable. I can quite see "A Ruined Holiday' happening more often as parents age. The small luxury of stealing ice cream meant for some one who has had their tonsils removed as in 'How i lost my Tonsils' and a family holiday laced with stories from the grandparents as in 'The Unending Story'. I have my very own 'Swallowed by a Snake' and 'The Mango War' stories and Iam sure many others would too. What sets this apart as another collection is that high degree of association with any reader.
