Publisher's Summary

My new "Travel Tales Collection", issue No. 12 for July 2015, "England, Ireland & British Isles Stories", a monthly book-of-the-month bookazine, is now available. It is part of Michael Brein's Collections travel tales series and contains among the best stories from Michael's huge collection of travel stories that he has gathered in interviews over the last four decades.

I've interviewed nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers in my own travels to more than 125 countries throughout the world. I am weaving their 10,000 or so fantastic travel tales into a psychology of travel as revealed by these very telling stories.

These are travelers I've met on planes, trains, buses, ships, tours, safaris, and in campgrounds, cafes, and pubs. These travelers have freely shared their most personal travel tales with me, which I, in turn, get to share with you now through my Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, in general, and the Travel Tales Collections, here, in particular.

Each Collection features a group of similar noteworthy travel tales of a kind, all on a very specific travel subject, theme, or country. The travel stories appear in Travel Tales Collections as a waypoint along their way into the audiobooks in my Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series.

Travel tales are told here - but with this one unique difference - with my being the world's first travel psychologist, you'll get more of the psychological pay dirt behind the incredible travel tales told to me by these travelers.

About this Collection: London is one of my most favorite cities, not only in Europe, but also in the entire world. And I love England and the rest of the U.K. as well. And while London is always exciting for me to visit, it is the whole of the United Kingdom that remains particularly etched in my memories.

Not about travel really

Not one of the stories was really about any unique experience in the UK/Ireland. They could have as easily been in the USA. Just a bunch of old hippie stories about getting high and ufo/crop circle friends who happen to live in the UK. He may have a psychology degree, but there was no real psychological insight in any of the vignettes. One tale was pretty much "I went on the London Eye with a friend, and found out he's afraid of heights!" or "I drove through Scotland & slept with random people!" These stories had no real charm or insight into the local culture or history, or even tips for travelers looking to avoid mishaps. All I learned was 1. Don't ride the tube with an expired ticket and 2. UK hippies get along with USA hippies.
