Eagle Dreams

Summary

When Stephen Bodio was a young boy in the early '50s, he saw an image in National Geographic that became forever etched in his mind: It was a photograph of a Kazakh nomad, dressed in a long coat and wearing a fur hat, holding a huge tame eagle on his fist. And a lifelong fascination with Central Asia was born. Mongolia, a vast country located between Siberia and China and little known to outsiders, was long under Soviet domination and inaccessible to Westerners. When it became independent in 1990, Bodio began planning a pilgrimage to see if the eagle hunters of "The Picture" had survived. A lifelong falconer himself, he longed to visit the birthplace of falconry and observe the traditions that had survived intact through the ages. His fantasy was realized when he traveled independently twice to the westernmost region of Mongolia and spent months with the people and birds of his dreams. The ancient rituals of hunting with eagles are fascinating, and the remarkable relationships these nomadic people have with their birds of prey are thrilling. With vivid prose and humor, Bodio gives life to his dreams and the people, landscapes, and animals of Mongolia that have become part of his soul.

Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days

6 ratings

Summary

In the autumn of 1988, Michael Palin set out from the Reform Club with an ambitious plan: to circumnavigate the world, following the route taken by Jules Verne's fictional hero Phileas Fogg 115 years earlier. The rules were simple. He had to make the journey in 80 days using only forms of transport that would have been available to Fogg. And so, complete with visas, running shoes, an inflatable globe and sound advice from Alan Whicker, Michael Palin began his incredible journey. Crossing 17 borders and meeting innumerable challenges, he saw Venice from the back of a rubbish barge, rode around the Pyramids on a camel called Michael, and was attacked by a cockatoo in Hong Kong - amongst many other adventures. Phileas Fogg may have brought a Princess back from his travels, but Michael Palin brought back a fascinating and frequently humorous account of the journey of a lifetime.

Summary

Before The Perfect Storm, before In the Heart of the Sea, Steven Callahan's Adrift chronicled one of the most astounding voyages of the century and one of the great sea adventures of all time. In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure books, Adrift is now an undeniable seafaring classic, a riveting firsthand account by the only man known to have survived for more than a month alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized only six days from port. Racked by hunger, buffeted by storms, scorched by the tropical sun, Callahan drifted for 1,800 miles, fighting off sharks with a makeshift spear and watching as nine ships passed him by. "A real human drama that delves deeply into man's survival instincts (Library Journal), Adrift is a story of anguish and horror, of undying heroism, hope, and survival, and a must-read for any adventure lover.

The mere thought of traversing any part of the African continent in a Land Rover with only two other companions is a daunting proposition...that is until the Indiana Jones element within Penny Lees kicked in one day and announced that she was to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Notwithstanding the various irritations whilst travelling through rural France, the Pyrenees, and Southern Europe, these paled into insignificance when faced with the climatic and cultural hurdles encountered in Africa.

From the author's diary entries, this enthralling epic plotting Penny Lees' journey offers the listener a clear picture of the problems that can be encountered. Nevertheless, complimenting this are the colorful and variegated landscapes along with equally colorful and different ethnic people.

Two weeks later I met a man, and we fell madly in love. It was a fairy-tale romance for a month and a half, and he convinced me to join him on a romantic month-long vacation in Italy. Forty-eight hours before we were supposed to get on a plane, he told me he needed to go by himself. I was devastated. So, I had a decision to make.

Summary

Starting in November 2013 in a forest in Rwanda, where a modest spring spouts a trickle of clear, cold water, Levison Wood set forth on foot, aiming to become the first person to walk the entire length of the Nile. He followed the river for nine months, over 4,000 miles, through six nations - Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, the Republic of Sudan, and Egypt - to the Mediterranean coast. Like his predecessors, Wood camped in the wild, foraged for food, and trudged through rainforest, swamp, savannah, and desert, enduring life-threatening conditions at every turn. He traversed sandstorms, flash floods, minefields, and more, becoming a local celebrity in Uganda, where a popular rap song was written about him, and a potential enemy of the state in South Sudan, where he found himself caught in a civil war and detained by the secret police. An inimitable tale of survival, resilience, and sheer willpower, Walking the Nile is an inspiring chronicle of an epic journey down the lifeline of civilization in northern Africa.

Summary

Unless you were in deep cryogenic sleep or were abducted by aliens and just came back to civilization; you probably noticed that everyone around you is playing the new smartphone game: Pokémon Go! It's currently the most popular game out there and the hottest topic in social media and blogs. Every 1990s kid either used to watch Pokémon the animated series back in the day or has at least once encountered this franchise. In those early days, collecting Pokémon trading cards and playing with them with your cousins, neighbors or friends was one of the best ways to have fun! Pokémon abbreviated from the Japanese title "pocket monsters" first came into this world via Nintendo. Pokémon was a video game for the original Game Boy and later, it was expanded for Nintendo 64 and many home console games. It was an instant hit and reached more than 200 million copies worldwide. Two years later in 1997, the animated series were developed by The Pokémon Company International and the rest is history. A whole generation of kids in 1990s and 2000s were brought up with this franchise. The adventures of Ash, Misty, and Brock with the humor of Team Rocket spanned in over 900 episodes of animated TV shows and 19 animated movies. Pokémon the anime show is said to be one of the most successful TV franchises ever and one of the longest-running animated TV shows out there. There are only two animated TV shows in the world which are running longer than Pokémon: The Simpsons, and Arthur. It is more popular than SpongeBob Squarepants! So it is no wonder that when augmented reality game developer company Niantic partnered with The Pokémon Company and Nintendo and eventually came up with Pokémon GO!, it smashed records as the most downloaded app ever.

Uganda - Culture Smart!

Summary

Once notorious for the tyranny of Idi Amin, immortalized in the film The Last King of Scotland, Uganda has, for the last 26 years or so, struggled to overcome its negative image. It has largely been successful. Rated the best country to visit in 2012, it was one named of the best tourist destinations of 2013 by National Geographic magazine. In addition to its game parks, home to the Big Five, Uganda has one of the largest numbers of recorded bird species of any country. It is also the home of the famed mountain gorillas, and the mighty Nile River provides some of the best whitewater rafting in the world. Add to this an almost perfect climate and spectacular sightseeing, including the source of the Nile, Murchison Falls, the “little Switzerland” of Kabale, the volcanic lakes, and the Rwenzori Mountains, and one can understand why Winston Churchill called Uganda “the Pearl of Africa”.  But Uganda not only has wildlife and natural beauty to offer - the Ugandan people are what makes it different. Drawn from over 50 tribes, they make up a rich blend of traditions. Kampala is famous as the social capital of East Africa, the city that never sleeps, where every kind of nightlife is on offer, and Ugandans have now been officially rated the happiest people in East Africa! This book provides key insights into Ugandan life and offers practical tips on how best to meet the Ugandan people on their own terms, vital information for tourists and businessmen alike.

The Devil's Teeth

3 ratings

Summary

Travel 30 miles north, south, or east of San Francisco city hall and you'll be engulfed in a landscape of thick traffic, fast enterprise, and $6 cappuccinos. Venture 30 miles due west, however, and you will find yourself on what is virtually another planet: a spooky cluster of rocky islands called the Farallones. Journalist Susan Casey was in her living room when she first glimpsed this strange place and its resident sharks, their dark fins swirling around a tiny boat in a documentary. These great whites were the alphas among alphas, the narrator said, some of them topping 18 feet in length, and each fall they congregated here off the northern California coast. That so many of these magnificent and elusive animals lived in the 415 area code, crisscrossing each other under the surface like jets stacked in a holding pattern, seemed stunningly improbable and irresistible. Casey knew she had to see them for herself. Within a matter of months she was in a 17-foot Boston Whaler, being hoisted up a cliff to face onto the barren surface of Southeast Farallon Island, part of the group known to 19th-century sailors as the "Devil's Teeth". There she joined the two biologists who study the sharks, bunking down in the island's one habitable building, a haunted, 120-year-old house spackled with lichen and gull guano. Less than 48 hours later she had her first encounter with the famous, terrifying jaws and was instantly hooked. Curiosity yielded to obsession, and when the opportunity arose to return for a longer stay she jumped at it. But as Casey readied herself for shark season, she had no way of preparing for what she would find among the dangerous, forgotten islands. The Devil's Teeth offers a rare glimpse into the lives of nature's most mysterious predators, and of those who follow them. Here is a vivid dispatch from an otherworldly outpost, a story of crossing the boundary between society and an untamed place where humans are neither wanted nor needed.

Summary

The incredible journey of one man who sets out to circumnavigate the globe on a vintage motorbike fueled by kindness. The Kindness Diaries is now trending on Netflix! Follow the inspirational journey of a former stockbroker who leaves his unfulfilling desk job in search of a meaningful life. He sets out from Los Angeles on a vintage motorbike, determined to circumnavigate the globe surviving only on the kindness of strangers. Incredibly, he makes his way across the U.S., through Europe, India, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and finally to Canada and back to the Hollywood sign, by asking strangers for shelter, food, and gas. Again and again, he’s won over by the generosity of humanity, from the homeless man who shares his blanket to the poor farmer who helps him with his broken down bike, and the HIV-positive mother who takes him in and feeds him. At each stop, he finds a way to give back to these unsuspecting Good Samaritans in life-changing ways, by rebuilding their homes, paying for their schooling, and leaving behind gifts big and small. The Kindness Diaries will introduce you to a world of adventure, renew your faith in the bonds that connect people, and inspire you to accept and generate kindness in your own life.

Summary

Why take the shortest, most direct route through life, when you could choose the wiggliest, most mountainous one possible? Armed with a limited grasp of Spanish and determined to meet as many Lamas as possible, Anna and her friend Faye set off on a six-month journey along the spine of the largest mountain range in the world - the Andes. Beginning in the bustling city of La Paz, the duo pedal south - through dense jungle, across pristine white salt flats and past towering volcanoes, following the path of thundering glacial rivers to the snow-tipped peaks of Patagonia. Sleeping wild in their tents most nights, they endure 50-mph crosswinds and catastrophic crashes, and go head to head with one very determined saddle sore called Sally. By the time they make it to the southernmost tip of the continent, they have cycled 5,500 miles and ascended over 100,000 metres through the mighty Andes - equivalent to 11 times the height of Everest. Told from the seat of Anna's bicycle, Llama Drama is a witty and compelling account of life at its rawest and most rich. For anyone who has ever wanted to journey through the stunning natural landscapes of South America - this story is for you.

Summary

Couchsurfer, hitchhiker, and rogue wanderer Jamie Ma"lin embarks on a couchsurfing adventure to the homeland of "firebrand", "populist", "anti-American” president Hugo Chavez: the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Alone in the crime capital of the world (with a murder rate higher than Iraq's), Maslin immediately finds himself in trouble - arrested by knife-wielding police officers and inoculated with an unwanted vaccination. After a terrifying start in Caracas, he soon leaves the teeming city and travels to the places tourists never see, staying on the couches of people he befriended online just days earlier, and meeting everyone from fervent social revolutionaries to the country's wealthy elite. He sets off in search of mile-high waterfalls, flat-topped jungle plateaus, rolling deserts, and the famous lightning that appears suddenly in the sky with no rain or thunder. Visiting sprawling slums and opulent mansions, Maslin offers a fascinating and timely social, cultural, and historical introduction to a country increasingly in the headlines. Often irreverent, frequently informative, and habitually funny, this is the remarkable account of a young adventurer's journey through a breathtakingly beautiful and dynamic country where the politics of oil and social revolution are never far from the surface.

Summary

Sam Manicom set off from the UK aiming to spend a year riding the length of Africa on a motorcycle; as told in his first book, Into Africa. This challenging first year was such fun that, in spite of a 17-bone fracture accident, being arrested, and being shot at, he decided not to head for home as planned. He finds passage on a container ship from South Africa to Australia, and a new adventure begins. In Sam’s second book, Under Asian Skies, you'll find yourself immersed in an enchanting mix of drama, majesty, laughter, mystery, love, and his usual disasters. Sometimes a traveller's plans simply don't work out as intended, but for Sam every mishap is the beginning of a unique adventure; silver linings do exist. You'll travel on a journey across the vastness of Australia, through the twists and turns of New Zealand, and on up into the exotic lands of Southeast Asia. You'll ride dusty back roads, ease along rugged dramatic coastlines, and through history and cultures. Work with fruit pickers, sit under the desert stars with a blond-haired aborigine, and cross paths with a runaway from the police. How is Sam's life saved by a Thai prostitute? And smugglers? Did he really find relatives in the steamy Sumatran jungle? Soak up the magical scents and sounds as the journey continues on through India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Iran. This heartwarming tale will take you on Himalayan mountain roads and paddling through the orange glow of the dawn on the River Ganges. Meet the people who live in villages little changed since the Middle Ages, and share chai with strangers. You'll explore the dramatic organised chaos of the grand cites of India, and ride the historic Grand Trunk Road. This is a two-year journey where every day really is an adventure.

Summary

A behind-the-scenes edition of 2,000 Miles Together, offering over four hours of bonus content featuring interviews and insights by the Crawford family. Not available in other formats. As his six children slept on the dirty floor of a women’s restroom while a blizzard howled outside, Ben Crawford had one thought: Have I gone too far? The next morning, Child Protective Services, along with an armed sheriff, arrived to ask the same question. 2,000 Miles Together is the story of the largest family ever to complete a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, defying skeptics and finding friends in the unlikeliest of places. On the trail, Ben Crawford battled not only the many dangers and obstacles presented by the wilderness - snowstorms, record-breaking heat, Lyme disease, overflowing rivers, toothaches, rattlesnakes, forest fires, and spending the night with a cult - but also his own self-doubt. In an effort to bring his family closer together, was he jeopardizing his future relationship with his kids? When the hike was done, would any of them speak to him again? The Crawford family’s self-discovery over five months, thousands of miles, and countless gummy bears proves that there’s more than one way to experience life to the fullest. You don’t have to accept the story you’ve been shown. By leaving home, you’ll find more than just adventure - you’ll find a new perspective on the relationships we often take for granted, and open yourself up to a level of connection you never thought possible.

One Year Off

Summary

Have you ever wanted to take a year off from your life? A meandering, serendipitous journey around the world with your family? It sounds impossible. But one day, David Elliot Cohen, co-creator of the best-selling Day in the Life and America 24/7 book series, decided to make this dream a reality. Over the course of six months, he and his wife sold their house, cars, and most of their possessions. He closed his business and pulled their three young children out of school. With only a suitcase, a backpack, and a passport per person, the Cohen family set off on a rollicking round-the-world journey filled with laugh-out-loud mishaps, heart-pounding adventures, and unforeseen epiphanies. In Botswana, the Cohens's tiny motorboat is charged by a hippo. In Zimbabwe, lions ambush a buffalo outside the family's tent. In Australia, their young daughter is caught in a riptide and nearly pulled out to sea. In One Year Off, you can join the family on a trek up a Costa Rican volcano, cruise the canals of Burgundy by houseboat, and ride ferries through the Greek Islands. Later, as the Cohens wander further off the tourist trail, you can drive through the villages of Rajasthan, traverse the vast Australian Nullarbor, and discover the charms of Cambodia's Angkor Wat and the hidden shangri-las of northern Laos. Over the course of these adventures, the Cohens learn to live as a family twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend time together without the distractions of modern life. The author rediscovers the world through his children's eyes and gains new perspective of his own life. This humorous, heartfelt story is the next best thing to taking the trip yourself.

Summary

Winner of the British Book Awards, Popular Non-Fiction Award, 2008. Eighteen countries. Five shock absorbers. Two bikers. One amazing adventure. After their fantastic trip round the world in 2004, fellow actors and bike fanatics Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. Inspired by their UNICEF visits to Africa, they knew they had to go back and experience this extraordinary continent in more depth. Joining up once more with producer/directors Russ Malkin and David Alexanian and the Long Way Round team, and with two new BMWs loaded up for the trip, their route took them from John O'Groats at the northernmost tip of Scotland to Cape Agulhas on the southernmost tip of South Africa. Riding though spectacular scenery, often in extreme temperatures, Ewan and Charley faced their hardest challenges yet. With their trademark humour and honesty, they tell their story: the drama, the dangers, and the sheer exhilaration of riding together again, though a continent filled with magic and wonder.

Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes

Summary

Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes (1879), a pioneering classic of outdoor literature, is one of Robert Louis Stevenson's earliest published works. It gives an account of his 12 day, 200 kilometer hiking journey through the sparsely populated areas of the Cévennes mountains in south-central France. The Cévennes was the site of a Protestant rebellion around 1702, which was severely suppressed by Louis XIV. Stevenson was well-versed in the history and evokes scenes from the rebellion as he passes through the area of the rebellion during the final days of his trek. The terrain, with its heather-filled hillsides, reminded him of parts of Scotland. He was accompanied by Modestine, a stubborn and manipulative donkey. The book discusses hiking and camping and tells of commissioning one of the first sleeping bags.

Summary

In his most challenging journey to date, Palin tackles the Himalayas, the greatest mountain range on earth. It is a virtually unbroken wall of rock stretching 1,800 miles from the borders of Afghanistan to south-west China. Penetrated but never conquered, it remains the world's most majestic natural barrier, a magnificent wilderness that shapes the history and politics of Asia to this day. Having previously risen to the challenge of seas, poles, and deserts, the highest mountains in the world were a natural target for Michael Palin. In a journey rarely, if ever, attempted before, in six months of hard traveling Palin takes on the full length of the Himalaya including the Khyber Pass, the hidden valleys of the Hindu Kush, ancient cities like Peshawar and Lahore, the mighty peaks of K2, Annapurna, and Everest, the bleak and barren plateau of Tibet, the gorges of the Yangtze, the tribal lands of the Indo-Burmese border, and the vast Brahmaputra delta in Bangladesh. He also passes through political flashpoints including Pakistan's remote north-west frontier, terrorist-torn Kashmir, and the mountains of Nagaland.

Summary

When the writer Donovan Hohn heard of the mysterious loss of thousands of bath toys at sea, he figured he would interview a few oceanographers, talk to a few beachcombers, and read up on Arctic science and geography. But questions can be like ocean currents: wade in too far, and they carry you away. Hohn's accidental odyssey pulls him into the secretive world of shipping conglomerates, the daring work of Arctic researchers, the lunatic risks of maverick sailors, and the shadowy world of Chinese toy factories. Moby-Duck is a journey into the heart of the sea and an adventure through science, myth, the global economy, and some of the worst weather imaginable. With each new discovery, Hohn learns of another loose thread, and with each successive chase, he comes closer to understanding where his castaway quarry comes from and where it goes. In the grand tradition of Tony Horwitz and David Quammen, Moby-Duck is a compulsively readable narrative of whimsy and curiosity.

Summary

Sam Manicom's dynamic fourth book is an enticing yet frequently challenging motorcycle journey across the dramatic landscapes of Mexico, the United States and Canada. Sam's partner Birgit is no longer a novice motorcyclist - riding through southern Africa and South America turned her into a rider capable of facing any challenge. But Sam was worried. As they arrived into North America they had been travelling around the world by motorcycle for six years and he was beginning to think that North America was going to be easy; too easy in fact. Were all the challenges of travel in the developing world countries going to be missing? Sam couldn't have been more wrong. Samuel Johnson wrote, "The use of travelling is to regulate imagination by reality and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them how they are." After all, aren't these some of the main reasons for going travelling? To experience as many different things and ways of life as possible? To discover new and wonderful things, but also to have preconceived ideas challenged. This true-life story has more twists and turns than a Rocky Mountain Pass, and more surprises than anyone could expect. As it did them, at times it could challenge you too. Woven into this surprising story are canyons, cowboys, idyllic beaches, bears, mountains, Californian Vineyards, gun-toting policemen with grudges, glaciers, exploding volcanoes, dodgy border crossings, and some of the most stunning open roads that a traveler could ever wish to see. A gripping rollercoaster of a journey across North America. Sam and Birgit are thrown into a completely new set of challenges. These adventures bring alive the history, geography, human relationships and the pure joy of the open road.

Chinese Lemonade: A Minnesotan's View of Southern China

Summary

It's 9:45 AM on Sunday morning and Starbucks is completely empty. Over 1.5 million people live in the city of Zhuhai, China, yet I sit alone at a large wooden table, sipping a latte, and writing in my journal. Culture shock hits you in ways you never expect. I guess that's why it's so...well, shocking. "The coffee shops don't open until 8:00 AM? How do these people wake up in the morning? How do you say 'put away your stinky feet' in Mandarin? Wait, I ordered frog? Those are the characters for 'field chicken." Living in another country is a fascinating experience. Southern China is absolutely beautiful and Chinese food is figuratively to die for. A native of Minnesota, the transition to mega-city-China was challenging, but it was a challenge which allowed me to grow. It opened my eyes with new experiences, new sights, new sounds, and my hope is that I'm able to share some of that with you in this audiobook.

The Ice Cave

Summary

Gripping true adventure stories - from the Mojave to the Antarctic - reveal one woman's wild affair with the earth. For Lucy Jane Bledsoe, wilderness had always been a source of peace. But during one disastrous solo trip in the wintry High Sierra she came face to face with a crisis: the wilderness no longer felt like home. The Ice Cave recounts Bledsoe's wilderness journeys as she recovers her connection with the wild and discovers the meanings of fear and grace. These are Bledsoe's gripping tales of fending off wolves in Alaska, encountering UFOs in the Colorado Desert, and searching for mountain lions in Berkeley. Her memorable story "The Breath of Seals" takes readers to Antarctica, the wildest continent on earth, where she camped out with geologists, biologists, and astrophysicists. These fresh and deeply personal narratives remind us what it means to be simply one member of one species, trying to find food and shelter - and moments of grace - on our planet.

Race to the Pole

1 rating

Summary

A very British adventure: the first race to the South Pole since Scott and Amundsen, 100 years ago New Year's Day, 2009. Somewhere on the bottom of the world, six teams of adventurers and explorers have gathered to race one another, on foot, to the South Pole. It is the first time that anyone has undertaken such a race in almost a hundred years; the first time since the great Norwegian, Roald Amundsen, beat Captain Scott to the same goal in 1911. The stakes are high, as double-Olympic Gold-winning medallist James Cracknell and TV presenter and adventurer Ben Fogle must contend with hidden crevasses, frostbite and the favourites to win: a team of teak-hard former soldiers from Norway, trained in Arctic warfare. Temperatures as low as minus 45 degrees Celsius lie in store for the teams as they attempt to ski across 800 kilometres of unforgiving, icy wilderness, pulling behind them sledges laden with equipment, tents and food. Race to the Pole is a rip-roaring 'boy's own' adventure packed with excitement, humour and even a few tears. But with just a few months to learn to cross-country ski before the start, and with national pride at stake, can Ben and James re-write history and beat the Norwegians?

Kissing Kilimanjaro

1 rating

Summary

Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called "Everyman's Everest" because it is possible for a novice climber to reach the summit. And every year, more than 30,000 adventure tourists try. But for each person who goes to the mountain, there are thousands more who chat about it at cocktail parties, making plans to go...someday. That's how Daniel Dorr got started: flirting with a beautiful brunette over hot cocoa and spouting impressive plans. Six months later, he was lying on the cold gravel trail at 18,000 feet, panting and hacking in the darkness. Dorr is a typical marketing exec by day but, amped up by his re-acquaintance with a romantic interest; he gained the determination to pursue one of his lifelong dreams - summiting Kilimanjaro. When Dorr left behind the familiarity of his weekend-warrior lifestyle in Southern California to reach the top of the 19,340-foot peak, he didn't realize he would cross a threshold to a new way of life. As he fondles expensive hi-tech gear, gets vaccinated for the jungle, travels local-style across East Africa, and vomits on top of the African continent, listeners share in the rewards, both large and small, of reaching for personal fulfillment through adventure travel.

Summary

“Well, now I’m committed,” he thought to himself after telling a national TV game show audience that he wanted to ride a motorcycle to Mongolia with his winnings. He felt the fear that commitment always induced in him; he was hoping they might have edited that bit out. Commitments are something he tried to get as far away from as possible, the only other constants in his life being twenty-five years of financial prudence, travel and motorcycle obsession.So there he was, committed to going very, very far on a motorcycle with his meager prize money. Consequently, he spent a winter on eBay and a spring in the garage preparing his $1000 KLR 650 for an uncertain life on the road. Armed with a cynical humor, a strong sense of direction, a vague sense of balance, and no sense of proportion, he embarked on a 15,000-mile solo motorcycle ride to see what would break first; bike, body, or budget. Leaving an indifferent existence in England behind he headed east, looking for purpose, a new life, and a new location to live it. He was in search of greener grass.

Motorhome Living for Beginners

Summary

When you want to change your lifestyle entirely, you need to have enough motivation, but you also need to have knowledge about the lifestyle that you are adopting. Many people who want to live in an RV full time fail to find a balance in their lives that makes that living pleasurable while others can live the dream and learn to compromise on comforts for the sake of freedom. They wake up in the morning to feel that they have breathed fresh air. They see different scenery every morning if they so wish. What you need to know before joining them is whether you're cut out for the lifestyle and what differences there are between living in a conventional home and living in an RV. This book bridges that gap in your knowledge, and although you may choose to save a fortune by staying at home, you may also choose the lesser traveled road and discover the benefits of living in an RV. Both lifestyles, either in an RV or a home, have their pros and cons. Many who choose the RV lifestyle find that adapting their lives comes naturally. It takes a unique and free-spirited person to compromise on the luxuries of home living in favor of the adventurous lifestyle offered by RV living, though many do. Once you weigh the pros and cons, you can make the choice wisely, and that's what this book is all about. The book will appeal to the free spirited who seek something more than merely surviving month to month, oppressed by mortgage payments and housing taxes. Both have benefits, though those who live the life they choose, rather than the life chosen for them by responsibility, find that RV life tests their personal boundaries and skills, freeing up their lives to live beyond the grid. Journey with us and learn if living in an RV will suit you, and be prepared for the journey of your life.

Travels in an American Imagination

Summary

Is our era both the most wondrous and the most horrific time ever to be alive in the history of the human race? Award-winning travel journalist Lee Foster thinks so. His audiobook, Travels in an American Imagination: The Spiritual Geography of Our Time consists of 25 essays, in which Foster evokes a place in his worldwide travels and then addresses the spiritual geography of our era. Foster's work has won eight Lowell Thomas Awards, the highest accolades in travel writing, including him being named Travel Journalist of the Year (Silver Winner). More than 200 of his worldwide coverages can be seen at fostertravel.com. Foster suggests that a balanced perception of modern life, with sufficient imagination, can enable a modern person to live in a healthy, constructive manner and not be overwhelmed by pessimism or despair. Modern life is defined by the constant media or actual-life barrage of polar positive and negative experiences on the average informed person. Those seeking an inner peace need to balance these assaults on their sensibilities through a deeper understanding of the current human drama. Foster views modern life with an unflinching clarity. For example, in his chapter "Brazil: The Decline of the Environment," he describes the experience of walking in a perishing rain forest with its irreversible loss of species. Yet Foster balances this encounter with the wondrous, as in "Canaveral: The Adventure of Space Flight," in which he celebrates that we put a man on the moon, no small feat, in his lifetime.

One for the Road

Summary

"A high-spirited, comic ramble into the savage Outback populated by irreverent, beer-guzzling frontiersmen." (Chicago Tribune) "A fascinating insight into what we're all about on the highways and byways along the outback track." (The Telegraph, Sydney) Swept off to live in Sydney by his Australian bride, American writer Tony Horwitz longs to explore the exotic reaches of his adopted land. So one day, armed only with a backpack and fantasies of the open road, he hitchhikes off into the awesome emptiness of Australia's outback. What follows is a hilarious, hair-raising ride into the hot red center of a continent so desolate that civilization dwindles to a gas pump and a pub. While the outback's terrain is inhospitable, its scattered inhabitants are anything but. Horwitz entrusts himself to Aborigines, opal diggers, jackeroos, card sharks, and sunstruck wanderers who measure distance in the number of beers consumed en route. Along the way, Horwitz discovers that the outback is as treacherous as it is colorful. Bug-bitten, sunblasted, dust-choked, and bloodied by a near-fatal accident, Horwitz endures 7,000 miles of the world's most forbidding real estate, and some very bizarre personal encounters, as he winds his way to Queensland, Alice Springs, Perth, Darwin - and a hundred bush pubs in between. Horwitz, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of two national best sellers, Confederates in the Attic and Baghdad Without a Map, is the ideal tour guide for anyone who has ever dreamed of a genuine Australian adventure. "Lively, fast-paced and amusing...a consistently interesting and entertaining account." (Kirkus Reviews) "Ironical, perceptive and subtle...will have readers getting out their maps and itching to follow Horwitz's tracks... The internal journey is his finest achievement; he allows the reader into his heart, to go travelling with him there, sharing his adventures of the spirit." (Sunday Times, London)

Cover art for Vancouver

Vancouver

Summary

Named after George Vancouver, the British explorer who sailed down the Pacific Coast to Burrard Inlet in 1792, Vancouver is one of the world's great natural harbors. The downtown area is flanked on three sides by ocean with Burrard Inlet to the north that extends eastward for miles to Port Moody. English Bay sits to the west of downtown and False Creek to the south. The Fraser River flows from northern British Columbia into the ocean just south of False Creek and the airport, located on Sea Island, one of many islands at the mouth of the Fraser River, is only a few feet above sea level. Vancouver is also a city of mountains that, on a clear day, are visible from the entire city. The luxurious homes of North and West Vancouver wash up onto them. At night, the ski hill on Grouse Mountain shines like a constellation. Just beyond the “lions”, the two prominent bumps that look more like the ears of a lion, is Whistler, one of the world's most prestigious ski resorts. Highlighting this geographical gem is the lush vegetation that thrives in the city's temperate rain forest climate. But Vancouver is more than scenery and outdoor sports. The town is world-known for its first-rate ethnic restaurants, its trendy bars and its high-end fashion shops. There are more ethnic groups and languages spoken in Vancouver than any other city in the world. The oldest nationalities by far are the Coastal First Nations groups that have dotted the shores of the Pacific all the way to Alaska for the last 3,000 years.

The Whole Truths You Should Know Before You Travel to the Philippines: Second Edition

Summary

This book was written from an American perspective. The author believes that the Philippines, as a country, is an island paradise that has been tarnished by several deadly Islamic terrorist groups and organized-crime syndicates. This book provides you with reliable and up-to-date information on places in the Philippines that are deadly to foreign visitors where a great number of them have been kidnapped, brutally beaten, and killed. The author believes that you should be a well-informed traveler for your own safety and security in the Philippines.On the one hand, the book lists some of the safest tourist spots where you can enjoy your stay and have memorable moments; on the other hand, it alerts you of the illegal organ trade, which constitutes a grave danger to foreign visitors. You will learn, among other things: Why kidnapping for ransom is such a lucrative business in the Philippines What you should know about deadly deeds of some taxi drivers in the Philippines Some places that should be classified "off-limits" to foreign visitors and why the travel industry keeps quiet about it How to avoid being car jacked in the Philippines And much more. Additionally, the author lets you in on some secrets and techniques you will not find or read anywhere else, which makes this book unique and authentic. If you set your eye on a Filipino woman or women, before your relationship gets serious you should be fully aware of the following factors that really matter in your relationship with your Filipino woman, such as the "Age Factor", the "Many Babies Factor", the "Pregnancy factor", and the "Pawn shop Factor". Many foreign nationals have made some regrettable and irreparable mistakes in marrying Filipino women just to realize afterward that they should have known these factors before tying the knot. Why should you make the same mistake? This book can help prevent these unwanted and dreadful mistakes. The book also teaches you "how to make a woman agree with you nearly all the time", "how to detect con artists who pose as legitimate Filipino female pen pals", "how to connect with and seduce a Filipino woman successfully online and in person", and among others, "how to outsmart online Filipino female con artists". The author presents a specific list of places which are a breeding ground for kidnapping; therefore, he strongly recommends that these areas in the Philippines should be off-limits to foreigners. The warnings that he has listed in this book are not intended to deter the listener from traveling to the Philippines; on the contrary, he encourages them to visit with their loved-ones and friends, provided that they get relevant, unbiased, and truthful information about places to stay away from. He feels an obligation, as a foreign national himself, to share with them some hard and plain truths that they need to know before they travel to the Philippines, so they can enjoy their stay with confidence and peace of mind. If this book has contributed in helping to save a life from the terrorists and bandits, then that would be, as he put it, his utmost satisfaction.

A Highly Unlikely Bicycle Tourist

Summary

A highly unlikely bicycle tourist Many an incredible story may have been told about young courageous men and women cycling the globe in search of adventure, covering vast distances at speed each day with not a care in the world, sleeping wherever they could pitch a tent or find someone willing to give them a free meal and bed for the night. Well, this incredible story is a little different. It is a story about a 350-pound middle-aged, disabled, working-class husband and father. I was never a regular cyclist, and I knew nothing about bicycle maintenance and repair. And yet, without a single day of bicycle touring practice, I loaded up my shiny new bike with everything I thought I’d need and cycled out of Cheshire to see the world. Solo, self-financed, with no support network and without any fixed route plan other than, “I’m going that way.” What could go wrong? I wondered. Bicycle Touring Bicycle touring is often referred to as cycle touring, bike touring, and bikepacking. However, bikepacking usually involves travelling ultra-light. Bicycles and other pedal-powered vehicles, as well as electric-assist, are perfect for exploring the world at just the right speed and in any way you choose. A day out or a long weekend, with an organized tour group or partner. On a shoestring or healthy budget. Travel as your fitness will permit, for as far and for as long as you wish. There are no rules, and you don’t have to love cycling or be a regular cyclist to love touring. Info Fourteen chapters about a far from typical bicycle touring adventure Organic reviews.

The Devil's Teeth

Summary

Travel 30 miles north, south, or east of San Francisco city hall and you'll be engulfed in a landscape of thick traffic, fast enterprise, and $6 cappuccinos. Venture 30 miles due west, however, and you will find yourself on what is virtually another planet: a spooky cluster of rocky islands called the Farallones. Journalist Susan Casey was in her living room when she first glimpsed this strange place and its resident sharks, their dark fins swirling around a tiny boat in a documentary. These great whites were the alphas among alphas, the narrator said, some of them topping 18 feet in length, and each fall they congregated here off the northern California coast. That so many of these magnificent and elusive animals lived in the 415 area code, crisscrossing each other under the surface like jets stacked in a holding pattern, seemed stunningly improbable and irresistible. Casey knew she had to see them for herself. Within a matter of months she was in a 17-foot Boston Whaler, being hoisted up a cliff to face onto the barren surface of Southeast Farallon Island, part of the group known to 19th-century sailors as the "Devil's Teeth". There she joined the two biologists who study the sharks, bunking down in the island's one habitable building, a haunted, 120-year-old house spackled with lichen and gull guano. Less than 48 hours later she had her first encounter with the famous, terrifying jaws and was instantly hooked. Curiosity yielded to obsession, and when the opportunity arose to return for a longer stay she jumped at it. But as Casey readied herself for shark season, she had no way of preparing for what she would find among the dangerous, forgotten islands. The Devil's Teeth offers a rare glimpse into the lives of nature's most mysterious predators, and of those who follow them. Here is a vivid dispatch from an otherworldly outpost, a story of crossing the boundary between society and an untamed place where humans are neither wanted nor needed. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Summary

Finding Your Way Without Map or Compass

3 ratings

Summary

During his remarkable lifetime, Harold Gatty became one of the world's great navigators (in 1931, he and Wiley Post flew around the world in a record-breaking eight days) and, to the benefit of posterity, recorded in this book much of his accumulated knowledge about pathfinding both on land and at sea. Applying methods used by primitive peoples and early explorers, the author reveals how to determine location, study wind directions and reflections in the sky, even how to use the senses of smell and hearing to find your way in the wilderness, in a desert, in snow-covered areas, and on the ocean. By observing birds and other animals, weather patterns, vegetation, shifting sands, patterns of snow fields, and the positions of the sun, moon, and stars, would-be explorers can learn to estimate distances and find their way without having to rely on a map or a compass. The wealth of valuable data and advice in this volume - much of it unavailable elsewhere - makes it indispensable for hikers, bikers, scouts, sailors, and outdoorsmen - all those who might find themselves stranded or lost in an unfamiliar area. Through careful study of this book and its lessons, pathfinders can learn to interpret signs in the natural world to find their way in almost any kind of terrain. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Summary

Losing her job was an opportunity, not a tragedy. Fresh off of a nine-month journey, camping off her 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 sport bike through 49 US states and three provinces of Canada, Tiffani Burkett wasn’t ready to return to a nine-to-five. She had picked up a freelance gig as a motorcycle journalist, she had met someone, and she still had a little bit of her dwindling life savings left in the bank. Naturally, the only logical course of action was to to set her sights toward the next set of landlocked states in North America: Mexico. Despite growing up in Los Angeles, she had never been south of the border, didn't speak any Spanish (except for the swear words she learned in high school), and even without the recent political unrest, it seemed that everyone had plenty of stories to tell about cartels and crime and violence. But if fear was enough to stop her from living out her dreams, she wouldn't be a motorcyclist in the first place. Whether it's dealing with broken-down equipment in the wild west city of Durango, a passport debacle in Costa Rica, or a last minute flight to help a friend race the North West 200 in Ireland, people are far better than the media implies, and what she finds is a wonderful journey through new cultures, new environments, and newfound strength in both herself and her growing relationship with her travel partner. Chronicles of a Motorcycle Gypsy: South of the Border is the second book in a series of memoirs. Originally published as a travelogue in Motorcyclist Magazine as Girl Meets World, this full-length memoir has been rewritten from the ground up to include the untold stories and the details that were a little too racy for the blog. If you loved Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman's Long Way Round and Ted Simon's Jupiter's Travels, you'll love Chronicles of a Motorcycle Gypsy!

Summary

In a remote kingdom hidden in the Himalayas, there is a trail said to be the toughest trek in the world—24 days, 216 miles, 11 mountain passes, and enough ghost stories to scare an exorcist. In 2007 Kevin Grange decided to acquaint himself with the country of Bhutan by taking on this infamous trail, the Snowman Trek. He was 33, at a turning point in life, and figured the best way to go when at a crossroad was up. Against a backdrop of Buddhist monasteries and soaring mountains, Grange ventured beyond the mapped world to visit time-lost villages and sacred valleys. In the process, recounted here with a blend of laugh-out-loud humor, heartfelt insight, and acute observation, he tested the limits of physical endurance, met a fascinating assortment of characters, and discovered truths about faith, hope, and the shrouded secret of blossom rain. Beneath Blossom Rain, Grange’s account of his journey, packs an adventure story, a romantic twist, and a celebration of group travel into a single entertaining book. The result is the ultimate journey for any traveler, armchair or otherwise. Along with high adventure, it delivers an engaging look at Bhutan—a country that governs by a policy of Gross National Happiness and that many regard as the last Shangri-La.

Thailand: Why You Shouldn't Retire to Thailand

2 ratings

Summary

I didn't write this for me, I wrote it for you. Why did I write it? It was to give people who are thinking about moving to Thailand reasons not to do it. What's the point of warning you of that, you may wonder. Well there are plenty of books that tell you to get over here. They'll tell you that life is easy, and the women are easier. They'll tell you that you can make money in Thailand, and that you can get a visa without hassle. In fact, many books paint Thailand as being a paradise on this Earth. For some, it is. For many, it's a torture that they can't wait to escape. Some can't escape, though, as they've blown every penny they had in the Kingdom and have nowhere else to go. This audiobook exposes the worst lie about Thailand, and goes on to detail many of the complications that retirees have in the Kingdom. At times it's not a pleasant listen, but there's plenty of expatriates who will tell you they wish they knew what they were getting themselves in for before they arrived in Thailand. You owe it to yourself to research as much as possible, and to weigh up the possibilities. In this audiobook, I'll throw some issues at you that you most likely haven't thought of. Even if you decide to go ahead and retire in the country, you'll be more switched on to the hurdles you may face.

Cover art for Thailand: The Ten Cardinal Sins

Thailand: The Ten Cardinal Sins

Summary

Every single day there are Western men arriving in Thailand for the first time, and contrary to popular opinion, they are not all sex tourists. Many arrive here determined to not get entwined with the local ladies. Alas, far too many not only get entwined, they get trapped, cocooned, and sucked dry by the professional black widow spiders that frequent the red light areas. This, though, is not a book about hookers in Thailand. There's enough of them out there already. What the book does cover is a couple of the more stunningly ridiculous situations that men can find themselves in when dealing with bar girls, but it's much more than that. The first chapter is "The Rule Of Man". We Westerners have an expectation of the police and the court system that you will not find in Thailand. It's a shock to the system, and applies to everyone that visits Thailand, male and female alike. Some of the advice may look like common sense to you, but you would be amazed at the number of people who lack it. Even more to the point, the number who leave their brains at the airport. Normally sensible people do ludicrous things, and they take risks they would never take back home. The information in this book could literally save your life, if not just your life savings. If you are thinking of holidaying in Thailand, or possibly even relocating to the Kingdom, this is essential listening. Thailand: The Ten Cardinal Sins is a how-to guide to avoiding the most dangerous, stupid, and costly mistakes.

Wide-Open World

Summary

His 20-year marriage was floundering. His two teenage kids were lost in cyberspace most of the time. He felt disconnected from his work, his family, his life. Which is when he had an idea: Let's volunteer our way around the world. John Marshall had read about the growth of voluntourism, and frankly, it was the only kind of extended trip he could afford. He'd heard that some peoples' lives were changed by a week of overseas service - what might half a year accomplish for his family? His wife, Traca, was all in favor of it; his kids, especially his 14-year-old daughter, were strongly opposed. Wide-Open World is the totally engaging, bluntly honest story of the Marshall family's life-changing adventure: six months of world travel, volunteering their way from Costa Rica to New Zealand to East Asia, how it went and what it led to. As Marshall discovered, he and his family did not change the world; the world changed them.

Cannes & Cap d'Antibes: Travel Adventures

Summary

Cannes is probably the most urban of all the Riviera resorts. When not lounging on terraces overlooking the water (the quintessential Cannes accommodation is a rented apartment with a sea or pool view), experienced visitors spend a lot of time "en promenade." Before lunch on La Croisette is the traditional time and place to stroll, window shop, see, and be seen. For aficionados of "old towns," the area known as Le Suquet around Cannes' oldest harbor is where what little remains of the city's pre-nineteenth-century history can be found. A medieval castle atop the old city, the views over La Croisette, the Bay of Cannes, and the Iles de Lérins make it clear why the first defensive structures of ancient Canoïs were built there. The castle now standing was built at the end of the eleventh century. The keep, the Romanesque Chapel of Sainte Anne, and the cisterns date from the original structure. I discovered that I loved Antibes on my first trip to the South of France. Maybe that is why it has remained my favorite town on the Riviera ever since. In the ruelles of the Vielle Ville, every house seemed bursting with flowers. Geraniums, oleanders, bougainvilla, grapevines, palms and yucca plants framed windows, tumbled out of pots, and covered golden stone walls. Rounding a bend we would be surprised by a sudden view of one of the ports, of the ramparts and fort. Or a market table loaded with oranges and lemons, their fragrances saturating the air. Or a shady square. Or the tiny shop where I bought needles in paper packets, embroidery silk, brightly printed Provençal fabrics, and armloads of fresh flowers. Some afternoons we chilled, drinking menthe et l'eau or Ricard along the front at Juan les Pins, watching women in high heels and gold bikinis shop the designer stores while my friend hummed "Music to Watch Girls By". At night we watched fireworks set to music over the harbor, listened to fabulous jazz in Juan les Pins, or tried our luck at the casino. American millionaires discovered Antibes-Juan les Pins at the beginning of the twentieth century. They built enormous mansions on the Cap d'Antibes or took over ones built half a century earlier, like Eilenroc, designed by Charles Garnier in the the 1860s. By the 1920s and '30s, the era the French call l'age du pyjama, they had turned it into a winter resort on their social schedule of Europe. Everything you need to know is in this remarkable guide: the history, what to see and do, the culture, the activities, the restaurants, and all the hotels. The author lives near the areas she writes about and visits them often.

Summary

Any travel guide to Rome will urge visitors to go the Colosseum, but none answers a simple question: Why is it called the Colosseum? The History of Rome in 12 Buildings: A Travel Companion to the Hidden Secrets of the Eternal City is compelling, concise, and fun, and takes you behind the iconic buildings to reveal the hidden stories of the people that forged the Roman Empire. Typical travel guides provide torrents of information but deny their listeners depth and perspective. In this gap is the really good stuff - the stories that make the buildings come alive and vividly enhance any trip to Rome. The History of Rome in 12 Buildings will immerse you in the world of the Romans, one full of drama, intrigue, and scandal. With its help, you will be able to trace the rise and fall of the ancient world's greatest superpower: Find the last resting spot of Julius Caesar. Join Augustus as he offers sacrifices to the gods. Discover the lie on the façade of the Pantheon. Walk in the footsteps of Jesus. And so much more.

Daniel Fox's book is ultimately about learning who we are and our place on this planet. It is a journey of growth told through the lenses of humility, vulnerability, and perspective.

The French Alps: Mont Blanc & Chamonix

Summary

In addition to its wealth of cultural sights, the European Alps offer a wider range of outdoor recreation than any other similarly sized region in the world. Adventurers of all ages hike hut-to-hut on multi-day treks, skiers slide year-round on glacial slopes, and Sunday walkers stroll forested trails. Bikers loop icy blue lakes, and mountaineers scale up waterfalls and down canyon cliffs. Europeans cherish their wilderness areas, and none more so than the pristine forests of the Alps. Modern adventurers run the gamut from rich to poor, young to old, and native to transient foreigner. So take a look around. That bus driver… This tour guide… Your hotel concierge… They may just be showing you the Europe they think you want to see. Take a moment to ask how they spend their own free time - odds are that each will spend a day outdoors this weekend. Want to know where they go? Soaring to Europe's loftiest heights, the majestic Mont Blanc nestles in eastern France, anchoring the s between France, the southwestern corner of Switzerland, and the northwestern corner of Italy. The mountain provides a focal point for adventurers in all three countries. Although other Alpine regions in France certainly merit consideration, Chamonix is by far the most convenient for a quick introduction to the French Alps. The cheerful old town sees a steady, year-round stream of sporting tourists who come to enjoy its legendary mountaineering challenges and skiing terrain. The resort of Courmayeur, Italy, lies at the opposite end of the Mont Blanc Tunnel, and the Valais region of Switzerland nestles just over the Col des Montes pass. The region's vast wealth of natural sights and cultural diversity make it an outstanding option for a quick, looping tour of the Alps. This guide tells you all about the things to do in the area, the hikes, walks and bike trails, where to stay and eat, what to see and do.

Having learned Mandarin, and travelling alone by foot, bicycle, and train, Colin Thubron set off on a 10,000-mile journey from Beijing to Tibet, starting from a tropical paradise near the Burmese border and reaching the windswept wastes of the Gobi desert and the far end of the Great Wall. What Thubron reveals is an astonishing diversity, a land whose still unmeasured resources strain to meet an awesome demand, and an ancient people still reeling from the devastation of the Cultural Revolution.

Backpacking is a rewarding activity that anyone can enjoy with proper knowledge, training and skills. Also, you'll discover... Selecting appropriate gear for your first trip How to make healthy food choices on the trail Complete gear checklist designed specifically for the novice backpacker And much more!

Summary

His destination Antarctica, his expectations high, veteran explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton set out, on the eve of the First World War, in pursuit of his goal to lead the first expedition across the last unknown continent. Instead, his ship, the Endurance, became locked in sea ice, and for nine months Shackleton fought a losing battle with the elements before the drifting ship was crushed and his crew marooned. Shackleton's gripping account of his incredible voyage follows him and his men across 600 miles of unstable ice floes to a barren rock called Elephant Island. It records how, with a crew of four, he crossed 850 miles of the worst seas in a 22-foot-long open boat and how, after landing on South Georgia Island, they then had to traverse over 20 miles of mountainous terrain to reach the nearest outpost of civilization. Shackleton recounts, too, the efforts of his support party aboard the Aurora, who in temperatures of -50 degrees and winds of 80 m.p.h. still managed to drop off supplies on the opposite side of the continent, little suspecting the fate of the Endurance and the ordeal of its crew. An astonishing story that explores the limits of unparalleled human courage, Shackleton's South ranks among history's greatest adventures.

My Falkland Islands Life

Summary

The world calls the Falkland Islands harsh and isolated. The Carters called it home.... In 1982, war brought The Falkland Islands into the spotlight. When Jennifer and her family put down roots in an unspoiled community on West Falkland, they can’t help but see the unruly climate and the close proximity to a frozen wasteland. How could a place like this be worth fighting for?  The Carters quickly learn that the Falklands way of life is friendliness and self-sufficiency. Their new life becomes one of abundant wildlife and growing their own food, but it never strays from the island’s true British identity.  Part homesteading, part off-the-grid, and all charm, this loving testimony to the resilient people of the islands will have you adding the Falklands to your bucket list in an instant.  My Falkland Islands Life is the story of one family’s adventure in a sub-Antarctic British territory 8,000 miles from the United Kingdom. The Falklands are situated in the South Atlantic, to the east of Argentina, South America. Whether you live on the islands, plan to travel there, or enjoy a fascinating travelogue, you’ll love Jen Carter’s engaging memoir of a charming life at the bottom of the world.  Buy My Falkland Islands Life to discover the true Falklands today!

High, Wide, and Handsome

Summary

British-born US resident Julian Bishop is at an inflection point. His children have left home, and he and his wife must figure out what they want to do next. They travel coast to coast across the USA and explore whether they truly want to be American.  High, Wide, and Handsome is an extremely witty travel book that seeks to understand American culture. It explores why the USA has been so successful since independence and also identifies some issues that should be addressed. In a world where America’s political leaders are widely ridiculed, the book acts as an antidote to the narrative that everything American is broken. It is an essential listen for anybody interested in America.

Summary

After spending his 20s traveling the world and hopping from job to job, Gabriel Schirm was lost. At 32 years old, he desperately needed to find direction and meaningful purpose in his life. With no physical training, he decided his answers were waiting for him somewhere along the historic 490-mile pilgrimage route called the Camino de Santiago in Spain. From the physical high of crossing the Pyrenees Mountains to the mind numbing rhythm of walking through the endless wheat fields of the Meseta, the route was filled with many challenges. Accompanied by his "guru" wife, Amy, Schirm faces setbacks like bed bugs and tendinitis, all in the pursuit of elusive answers. The lessons came from the serendipitous experiences and conversations with fellow pilgrims from all over the world. Sunrises to Santiago chronicles a wondrous journey of personal growth, physical pain, and outdoor adventure while teaching us all to enjoy life's incredible journey.

Are We Nearly There Yet, Dad?

Summary

In January 2008, Graham Naismith, 37-year-old IT consultant and former police detective, and his wife Eirene, aged 38 and a former teacher, spontaneously, and with no prior experience whatsoever, decided to embark on a 30,000 mile drive to Australia with their three daughters aged one, four, and six.  Having previously sold their house in anticipation of a drop in the housing market and with Graham's job at the infamous ID Cards Scheme looking precarious, the climate was right. So, with the decision made and the trip endorsed by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Lance Armstrong, and not forgetting The Hairy Bikers, four months of intensive planning and preparation followed.  A suitable four-wheel drive vehicle was bought and built to expedition standards and the relentless quest for sponsorship commenced. Satellite phones, emergency beacons, needles, drips, medicines, vaccinations galore, mountains of equipment, and bureaucracy were all sourced, and courses in vehicle repair, remote emergency first aid, and Russian were embarked on before they departed.  On May 1, 2008, they waved goodbye to their friends, and within 15 minutes heard their first “Are we nearly there yet, Dad?”. This proved to be a constant as they traveled through 19 countries including Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, and onto South East Asia before driving the entire circumference of Australia. As they traveled, the global economy went into meltdown.The book charts, in diary form, a journey through desert and jungle, from Auschwitz to the Beijing Olympics and from opulence to third-world poverty. The family encountered terrorist bombings, earthquakes, blood clots, gun-toting soldiers, corrupt policemen, covert tracking devices, AK-47 carrying locals, an attempted car-jacking, landslides, mines, convicted drug dealers at the Bangkok Hilton, lice, leeches, ghosts, scorpions, snakes, and sharks, not to mention their car being confiscated in China, blowing up in Thailand, and getting stuck in the middle of the Australian desert. Arguably, the overarching theme throughout this is one man's mid-life crisis that led to a physical journey of self-discovery and realization. On a less pretentious level, it gives a painfully honest insight into how a family and a marriage cope through the good and bad. It is, above all, a funny book.   If you’ve ever thought about throwing it in and doing something completely different, then this is a must listen. Includes full equipment list, visa details, preparations required, costs, route, vehicle maintenance tasks, and sponsorship details.

Summary

By captivating millions during his six-year, 50-country tenure as The New York Times' "Frugal Traveler", Seth Kugel has become one of our most internationally beloved travel writers. While his famously unassuming journeys around the globe have forged a signature philosophy of whimsy and practicality, they have also revealed the seemingly infinite booby traps of on-the-grid tourism. In a book with widespread cultural reverberations, Kugel takes the modern travel industry to task, determined to reignite humanity's age-old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity - obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor, and Starwood points.  Woven throughout with vivid tales of his perfectly imperfect adventures, Rediscovering Travel explains - often hilariously - how to make the most of new digital technologies without being shackled to them. For the tight-belted tourist and the first-class flyer, the eager student and the comfort-seeking retiree, Kugel reveals how we too can rediscover the joy of discovery.

Paris to the Pyrenees

Summary

Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, and health crises, David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk across France to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue Saint-Jacques then trekking 750 miles south to Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes 72 days on Roman roads and pilgrimage paths - a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading to the sanctuary of Saint James the Greater. It is best known as El Camino de Santiago de Compostela - "The Way" for short. The object of any pilgrimage is an inward journey manifested in a long, reflective walk. For Downie, the inward journey met the outer one: a combination of self-discovery and physical regeneration. More than 200,000 pilgrims take the highly commercialized Spanish route annually, but few cross France. Downie had a goal: to go from Paris to the Pyrenees on age-old trails, making the pilgrimage in his own maverick way.

Summary

Most people want out of North Korea. Wendy Simmons wanted in. In My Holiday in North Korea: The Funniest/Worst Place on Earth, Wendy shares a glimpse of North Korea as it's never been seen before. Even though it's the scariest place on Earth, somehow Wendy forgot to check her sense of humor at the border. But Wendy's initial amusement and bewilderment soon turned to frustration and growing paranoia. Before long she learned the essential conundrum of "tourism" in North Korea: Travel is truly a love affair. But, just like love, it's a two-way street. And North Korea deprives you of all this. They want you to fall in love with the singular vision of the country they're willing to show you and nothing more. Through poignant, laugh-out-loud essays, Wendy chronicles one of the strangest vacations ever. Along the way she bares all while undergoing an inner journey as convoluted as the country itself.
