Jeff Groberman shouldn’t have been allowed to travel alone.  He had no sense of direction and a penchant for getting into trouble and hadn’t traveled for thirty years.   Not since the disastrous European honeymoon in France when he accidently ended up in bed with the French innkeepers fifteen-year-old daughter. In this, the first volume of Jeff’s travels, a simple trip to Hawaii lands him in the Cook Islands. He then travels to Micronesia where he explores shipwrecks and encounters emasculating eels and gun toting widows.  Then it’s off to the South Pacific Islands of Fiji, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.

From the South Pacific he moves on to Asia where the quest for the perfect massage ends up in a hilarious misunderstanding over exactly what kind of a massage he wants.  After encounters with Thai pirates in Thailand, and visits to remote Vietnamese where Jeff heads north - way up north to Canada’s Yukon and the Northwest Territories where he learns the difference between a cow and a grizzly bear.

Finally he and three buddies go on the ultimate road trip to hell (actually to Oregon), to see a total eclipse of the sun.

You’ll laugh out loud as you follow Jeff’s wisecracks, weird and wonderful fellow travelers and grobal wanderings in volume one of his travel humor adventures around the globe.

If you enjoyed Jeff’s travel misadventures in Grobetrotting, you’re in for another round of his mirthful meanderings to the far corners of the planet with More Grobetrotting.  In this follow up book Jeff  is turned loose on a host of other unsuspecting places.

Jeff’s adventures begin on safari in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Botswana where he encounters lions, elephants, and gorillas along with a ferocious lineup of eccentric co-adventurers.  Along the way his encounter with a dreaded “albino leach” throws an entire camp into disarray. 

In a futile attempt to learn a second language Jeff switches continents and visits Mexico, Central America and South America.  His helpful advice to the citizens of Costa Rica on how to run their country results in him being invited in the national newspaper “not to come back.”  But by then he’s on route to the Galapagos Islands to follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin.

Darwin also visited New Zealand, so Jeff does too.  And after a water-soaked visit there he heads to sunny Spain, where he ponders the existential question of whether he’s brave enough to run with the Bulls... or would it be better to sit it out in a bar and watch it on a big screen.

There’s a latitude and longitude of laughs in sore for readers as Jeff continues his travels in this hilarious sequel to Grobetrotting.
