Feeling like a holiday? Intrepid travel writer Dan Slater writes for many travel mags and has two fun books for you. Warmduscher, literally meaning ‘warm shower’, is a German word to denote those of a soft disposition. 'Wimp' is an equivalent expression in English.

Dan and his wife Gerda are no warmduschers. In fact, it must be said that they are true gluttons for punishment. Three years after traversing the continent of Africa on a budget that would frighten Oliver Twist, they are back on the road, this time following the banana pancake trail of South East Asia. Great fun for you as you enjoy some schadenfreude (another great German word).

So lace up those boots and hike into 131 York Street to pick up your signed copy. Or just click that button (soft option).

Having survived the rough n’ tumble of life in Cape Town, the fearless duo are migrating again, this time to Sydney, Australia. The good news is – their daily allowance has skyrocketed to an extravagant $15 a day!

Bursting with the folly of middle age, D&G roam the orient armed only with equal doses of travel nous and stinginess. Beaches, brothels, Buddhas and buckets are all encountered to the full in this honest account of one couple’s continuing attempts to experience all the world’s wonders for the price of a Big Mac Meal, without succumbing to the lure of the dreaded warmdüschers.

Join them, and enjoy their every misfortune.
