Description

The Blakiston’s fish owl is going extinct out in Primorye, a remote forested region near to where Russia slaps up against China and North Korea.

Being absorbed by the traditional lives of the Bedu people, Thesiger greatly illuminates our understanding of Bedu culture. When he ends up with a map of a legendary, but hidden island, he befriends a French couple and they set out to find it.And from a high-altitude ride into Tibet to a trans-Canadian epic – not to mention a homecoming trip on the Venice Simplon Orient Express – the book does a fine job of affirming the things, large and small, that make rail travel such an absorbing way of seeing the world. The legendary cuisine and sensual streets of Paris makes the ideal spot to philosophise about the sheer joy of savouring what’s in front of you; a Turkish hammam is the condensation-streaked jumping-off point for trying something new; and while the artworks of Florence offer a chance to disconnect, the streets of New York afford just the opposite. In a three-quarter-ton truck named Rocinante and accompanied by his French poodle, Charlie, the road trip helps him rediscover America.

Recent reports suggest the now-quiet canals of Venice are at their clearest for 60 years, with swans spotted in recent days. Rita Golden Gelman is a prime example of the fact that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and live the life you want to live.

Helping to start the guidebook industry, their memoir will give you an open and honest look at this groundbreaking company. Coffey manages to weave in the hard-hitting detail in a light manner, which means even when the book is delivering its most serious of arguments – such as the fact that polluting air travel is predicted to double by 2037 – it never feels preachy. The Holy cow kept me hooked, it was such an honest account of things in India :) Loved reading a foreigner’s perspective of India! But it’s in the cultural aspects where she shines, and what follows is a heartfelt attempt to see, feel and experience local life, albeit through the eyes of a solo female traveller – always starting on the outside and working her way in.

With the help of a friend, Sommers stows away in a ship to follow her lover to California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Shortly after graduating from Emory University, Christopher McCandless decided to invent a new life for himself. All our journalism is independent and is in no way influenced by any advertiser or commercial initiative.

What this book shares with Kassabova’s is an understanding of not just the complex history – and there’s a lot of history here – of these grudges, but also how they’ve gone on to become part of the national character, with neighbours defining themselves by who they are not.

With 1,100 all new photographs and 544 pages of lively text highlighting the globe’s must-visit destinations, this version is even more inspiring.

Davies travels to these often-troubled regions to personally seek out and report the human stories behind the economies. With no political agenda, he journeyed to Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt to explore and to see popular tourist attractions. The result is a series of graphic memoirs that brilliantly juggle the subtleties and oddities of being a stranger in a strange town. He traveled through many cities like Beirut, Jerusalem, and Baghdad via motor vehicle, horse, or donkey, interacting with locals along the way. This globe-straddling journey is the follow-up to 2010’s well received Around India In 80 Trains , and sees her undertake a 45,000-mile (72,000km) journey through Europe, Asia and North America.
