Travels and Tribulations by Tyrel Nelson is a wonderful and insightful collection of short stories following the author’s journey through various locations where he has lived, worked, or just passed through. It is full of lovely anecdotes and in-depth recollections of some of his adventures as he has traveled around the world and recounts some of the interesting characters he has met along the way.
Each short story provides excellent insight for the reader into some of the lesser-traveled parts of the world and celebrates each culture Nelson had the pleasure of experiencing. This memoir is an excellent guide for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge about various countries or looking for travel tips for their own explorations.
This book is the perfect way for the author to share some of his more personal travel experiences. By incorporating some of the local dialects and languages from his adventures, readers experience the culture in a more personal manner. Passages such as, “¿Qué piensan los estadounidenses de la muerte?”, which are then translated for the reader, have the effect of transporting you on Tyrel Nelson’s travels with him. Giving a more rich and authentic feel to the writing.
Tyrel Nelson has created an informative and influential travelogue and shared some fantastic stories and knowledge of local areas while traveling. However, I feel each chapter could have been a bit longer as I yearned to know more about the surroundings and other events that took place while he was in the area. I would definitely like to learn more about his adventures.
Travels and Tribulations is the memoir of Tyrel Nelson. This heartwarming book is more than a collection of his travels; it documents his personal struggles and the challenges of losing his parents. What started as a project to pick himself up turned into a cathartic experience that he now shares with the world.
