Shreya Sen Handley’s Handle with Care chronicles her travels around the world in a humorous and blithe travelogue. The ‘quirky family’, which includes her British husband, two of their children and their dog, is often in tow. These are stories from the world outside of Sherwood Forest and south Kolkata – where they call home. The journeys take you from quaint Indian destinations like Rajasthan and Kerala, to bustling international capitals such as New York and Paris. They also include English idylls such as Dorset and Haworth, to the peaceful delights of Corfu. You can weather any storms, no matter how difficult, and you will have lots of fun, food, and epiphanies while you are at it. Regardless of mishaps, you learn that there is always magic to be found. These stories are delightful and will take you to new places without even having to move a single inch.
