The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain

Mark Twain’s classic cruise tale aboard the vessel ‘Quaker CIty’ that’s moving through Europe to the Holy Land with a group of religious pilgrims is funny at first and slowly progresses to bitter, as he comments on aspects of the culture he finds around him. He also comments on the way travellers behave when on a trip and can be relevant to some people we see, even today!
