Description: The Irresponsible Traveller - Travel literature collection of travels gone awry including stories by top travel writers and celebrities on the roads less travelled. This guide includes tales by Michael Palin, Ben Fogle and Simon Calder as well as other stories of adventurous, off-the-beaten-track travels, ideal holiday reading, travel inspiration.
Synopsis: Publishing to coincide with Bradt's 40th anniversary, The Irresponsible Traveller is a light but edgy collection of travellers' tales. Travel writers and celebrities alike recount their exciting, and often dangerous, adventures which include being chased by a sea lion, accosted by Brazilian kidnappers and a midnight raid to free turtles on the Amazon. Over 40 years Bradt has built a reputation for publishing books covering the road less travelled, and this collection celebrates exactly the sort of writing and storytelling about 'unusual' travel experiences that has helped to establish the company as a firm favourite amongst adventurous travellers. Featuring contributions from Hilary Bradt, Michael Palin, Ben Fogle and Jonathan Scott, the title is a perfect tome to dip in and out of.
