An Accidental Globetrotter: A Travel Memoir
Like many who are introverted and cautious, Jeff Martindale had only read about those who traveled the world. Then his employer sent him on two international business trips, which became dream voyages to some of the world’s most glamorous locales steeped in history and grandeur. The result is An Accidental Globetrotter, a refreshingly humorous and fact-filled journey by a writer whose sharp prose combines wit, attention to detail, and surprising courage.
