Travel Book Club: The Titanic Awards

By Lacy Morris

comments Comments (0)


By now, we've all seen the mega-blockbuster movie Titanic (possibly even several times) and Kate Winslet's promise to "never let go" after one of the more infamous nights in travel sunk the unsinkable—we all know the story. April 15, 1912, was a bad day in travel. And now author Doug Lanksy (read an entertaining interview here) is giving a nod to the worst of the worst—the unbearable bathrooms, the train ride with chickens, and the reservation that was never reserved—those days that are only funny in retrospect, if you live through it.

The Titanic Awards is a collection celebrating those travel horror stories with stats, interviews, and the world's worsts of travel interspersed—ever wanted to know the airline with the most delays or the most unfortunate city names (Boring, Oregon, or Intercourse, Pennsylvania)?
