Been There. Done That!

From leech infested rainforests to the most luxurious cruise ships afloat, Joyce Brooks has done it all. In the past twenty-five years, she has visited 110 countries and all 50 of the United States. She has escorted over 200 group trips as a group leader. She did it without wealth and she didn’t start until she was over forty. She did it by becoming one of the country’s most successful leaders of group tours. Shepherding busloads of senior citizens to the world’s most romantic and exotic places is tough, dirty business, and she loved doing it. This story recalls the many experiences on tours and personal travel that reveal humor, excitement, frightening, and thrilling escapades.

"On all my air tours, my husband always wanted to sit by the window, and being the good wife that I am, I always was stuck in the middle seat, and have literally been around the world in the middle seat."

Relive Joyce Brooks’ dreams as you travel with her around the world – so grab an aisle seat and come along.

"Around the World in the Middle Seat" is informative and inspirational. If you want to get into Group Travel, this is a great primer; if you are already established as a Group Leader, it will reinforce what you are doing and is fun to read.

"I received your book on Friday and finished reading it over the weekend. I greatly enjoyed your experiences with group travel, some of which I have also experienced. It's amazing all of the "hats" we are required to wear as group leaders, from Medical Doctor to Historian, to Comedian, to Psychiatrist. Its nice to know I am not alone in some of the wacky experiences I've encountered in my 4.5 years as a leader. Thankfully most of them have been enjoyable! Your book is a must read for any group leader!"

"I have just finished reading your "un-put-downable"  travel book, "Around the World in the Middle Seat". I found your variety of accounts of your experiences to be both quite fascinating and amusing.  I shall dip into it often, as I found it so entertaining on my first "Tour" of its contents."
