The Idiots Abroad are a couple of lucky people who, often due more to good luck than good planning, have been able to visit places and meet people in many places.
After years of attempting to "travel smart" and always falling short, they discovered the joys of Idiot Travel. Surrendering the illusion that they could "do it right" or "blend in", they have embraced their inner idiots. They go places. They throw themselves upon the local culture, make it clear that they are incompetent, and humbly accept the gracious assistance that almost always comes in return.
Unlike other systems of travel - "Savvy Traveler," "Through the Back Door," and so on, Idiot Travel requires no special research, knowledge, or skills. The essential elements of Idiot Travel include frequent smiles, a expressive shrug, a just-short-of-pathetic look that makes it clear that help is necessary and will be appreciated... and an open heart.
