Book Synopsis
This is a real life black comedy on travel experiences in countries all over the world.

The word ‘Travel’ generally conjures up images of holidaying at exotic tourist places. Well, Travel could be for business, pleasure, health-care, education, visiting friends or relatives, attending wedding functions, and the like. One could also undertake travel for business and mix it with pleasure. Whatever!
The title of this book “TRAVAILS of TRAVEL” is very apt, as the the word ‘travel’ itself is derived from the word ‘travail’. The Travail part of Travel becomes even more acute for budget travellers.
Etymology: ‘Travel’ is derived from ‘travail’ according to the Oxford English Dictionary, and it originally meant “Bodily or mental labour or toil, especially of a painful or oppressive nature; exertion; trouble; hardship; suffering.” In spite of the word’s painful beginnings, this noun was being used to mean the act of traveling by the late 1300s and ‘travel’ became the dominant form in the 1600s
