Man Seeks Greatest Views From the Bathroom

Offbeat, Travel News — By Lia Del Priore on January 5, 2011 at 3:55 pm

Just when you thought people couldn’t get any weirder, they inevitably do.  According to the UK Metro, author Luke Barclay is a man on a mission. That is, a mission to find the best view from a toilet. One of the first questions going through your head must be,  “what kinds of views can you even find from a toilet?  Barclay has found some options we never thought possible.  Some of the best are in exotic locations of Africa, Mount Sinai in Egypt, and Lake Titicaca in Bolivia. According to Barclay, the toilet in question just can’t be in a good location, it actually has to have a view from where you are sitting. Yes, you.

In his upcoming book entitled “Good Loo Hunting,” you’ll find a comprehensive guide to the best (and worst) toilets around the globe.  According to, this is not the author’s first toilet expedition.  A few years back, he released a book entitled “Loos with Views.”  How these two novels are different is beyond us, but one thing is for sure, it’s could end up being this year’s prime bathroom reading.
