The ideal present for the penknife-carrying, bottled-water-drinking traveller on a tight budget. A small-format gift book with 69 quite invaluable suggestions for what to do with a used plastic water bottle. Wonderful cartoons illustrate these clever hand-crafted contraptions, from mosquito coil holders to rustic wine glasses, tobacco pipes to instant washing lines and beer chillers to that other outback necessity – erm, the didgeridoo.
When it comes to travelling, Jon Dutton and Kathy Ready know better than most. They have set foot across myriad colours of foreign soil. They are also the authors of 69 Tricks to Travelling and 69 Essential Words for Travellers.
