One for the Road: Vroom By the Sea

Australian travel writer Peter Moore, author of memorable titles such as No Shitting in the Toilet and The Full Montezuma has a new book out that was just released downunder: Following on the success of Vroom with a View, comes Vroom by the Sea: the sunny parts of Italy on a bright orange Vespa.

Tough gig, huh? Ride around coastal Italy on a sporty bike, whose color is described as "the same shade of Donatella Versace", and write stories about travels through Sardinia, Sicily and the Amalfi Coast. All this while your wife is back at home, pregnant with your first child. Very lucky man indeed. It's "another laugh-out-loud whilst grinding your teeth with jealousy travel memoir."

If you're in OZ this week, you can meet Moore and grab the book -- Tonight he'll be at Gleebooks in Sydney, tomorrow at the Malt Cafe in Beaumaris (Melbourne) and on Thursday, he'll be at the famous Espy in St. Kilda in support of fellow travel writer Brian Thacker's band, which will be playing that evening. He'll also be making an appearance in Brisbane in December.
