Does anyone know what this book is called....?
The book in question was not even that good, It's just driving me nuts I can't remember!!
It was a travel memoir type book, but very light and chick-litty, about a girl backpacking around SE Asia.
I can only remember tiny bits of the plot; she's travelling with a friend for the first part... they have a falling out and split up... she stays at the Mut Mee guesthouse in Nong Kai... questions the border crossing into Laos being called the "friendship bridge" when they're so unfriendly... thinks Udon Thani is a complete armpit of a place after something goes wrong there...
I think the title *may* have had the word "ruby" in it... and there was a subtitle, something about being badly behaved...
And that's about all I can recall and it's just not enough to bring up results when I google.
I know its a long shot but I figure a community of travellers are more likely to have read travel books than anyone else... Does anyone know this book???
Could it be "Dark Ruby: Travels in a Troubled Land" by Zoe Schramm-Evans? Looks about right.

I have actually read both of these books and was merging them into one in my dodgy old memory.
I've just re-read Bad Karma and found it nowhere near as funny as I remembered. (perhaps the difference in perspective 7 odd years of travel experience makes?)
