Book Description :

This hilarious travelogue comes to us from Down Under, where it was first published, and is very probably unlike any other travel account you have ever read.


Sheward hits the road with her twenty-something chum, Elisa, as they head for Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia with nary a plan. Sheward has a sharp ear for humor, with chapter titles such as “The Annoyance of Being Earnest,” “Haight-Ashbury on the Mekong,” “Animosity Bridge,” and “Subterranean Hoedown.”


They find themselves in the most incredible situations. They meet characters like the “Kip Kid” and the “Queen of Whatever” and a variety of stoned backpackers and slum runners who turn out to provide a series of absurd and laugh-out-loud misadventures.


Once you have taken this wayward journey through Southeast Asia, your perception of the world may be altered somewhat, but you will have been highly amused and even informed by this unique adventure. From a bizarre encounter with a Xena-obsessed hotel clerk in northern Thailand, to a stoned flight on a crumbling Russian plane in Laos, harassed in Vietnam and confused in Cambodia, Tamara Sheward takes a wayward journey through the underbelly of Southeast Asia so often bypassed by traditional travel writers. Peppered with swindlers, sleazeballs and sanctimonious hippies, Bad Karma puts backpacker culture through the wringer.
