Item Details

Since 1998, Lonely Planet has been publishing our favorite travel stories. The disasters of 'Lonely Planet Unpacked,' the romances of 'Brief Encounters', the random acts of generosity in 'Kindness of Strangers', the out-there adventures of 'Tales from Nowhere' - these stories, and many others, explored the reasons why we travel, and what we find when we get there. Now we've selected the best of them. From the first tentative steps of the young backpacker finding her feet in a London hostel, to the beyond-travel commetment of setting up house in Delhi, the 26 stories in this collection cover the globe and reveal a world of travel experiences. 'Best of Lonely Planet's Travel Writing' Includes: Tim Cahill, William Dalrymple, Jason Elliot, Pico Iyer, Jan Morris, Emily Perkins, Karl Taro Greenfeld, Danny Wallace, Tony Wheeler, Simon Winchester and more.
