In 2005, Josh (Nicaragua 1998-2000) and his bride, Sutay Berman (The Gambia 1996-98), canceled their wedding reception, diverted the money to plane tickets, and applied to volunteer around the world. Crocodile Love: Travel Tales from an Extended Honeymoon brings the reader along to:
- Explore Sutay’s unique family legacy in Pakistan, opening many strange doors,
- Experience the world’s great religions through a traveler’s lens,
- Volunteer for three months on a tea plantation in India and for two months with Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana,
- Stride unannounced into the mud-hut Gambian village where Sutay had once lived as a Peace Corps Volunteer, ten years before.
Crocodile Love was published by Tranquilo Travel Publishing Josh’s independent publishing platform based in Boulder, Colorado.
Berman is a columnist for The Denver Post and author of five books with Avalon Travel Publishing, including Moon — Nicaragua, Moon — Belize, and coming in April, Moon — Colorado Camping. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, and Yoga Journal.
