A celebration of the life and legacy of one of the most important food writers of all time – the inimitable Anthony Bourdain
Anthony Bourdain saw more of the world than nearly anyone. His travels took him from his hometown of New York to a tribal longhouse in Borneo, from cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, Paris, and Shanghai to the stunning desert solitude of Oman's Empty Quarter – and many places beyond.
In World Travel, a life of experience is collected into an entertaining, practical, fun and frank travel guide that gives readers an introduction to some of his favorite places – in his own words. Featuring essential advice on how to get there, what to eat, where to stay and, in some cases, what to avoid.
Supplementing Bourdain's words are a handful of essays by friends, colleagues, and family that tell even deeper stories about a place, including sardonic accounts of traveling with Bourdain by his brother, Chris; a guide to Chicago's best cheap eats by legendary music producer Steve Albini, and more.
"White, and more white, in every imaginable shade. Each and every second in this whiteness became an ordeal: being this close to the magnetic South Pole made the needle of my compass spin like the hands of a crazy watch. I didn't know where I was heading. I was a blind man in the middle of Antarctica ... "
South African-born explorer Mike Horn achieved his childhood dream of crossing Antarctica in February 2017. Journeying alone across this immense, white desert on foot and by kite-ski, he followed an unexplored path: 5 100 kilometres over crevasses, ice fields and some of the highest summits of the South Pole.
Dream of a Lifetime: Crossing Antarctica tells the story of the authorʼs deeply personal quest, which followed the loss of his wife. It is the narrative of an individual testing his limits and overcoming adversity through willpower, with the support of family and friends.

In the summer of 1849, Giuseppe Garibaldi, Italy's legendary revolutionary, was finally forced to abandon his defense of Rome. He and his men had held the besieged city for four long months, but now it was clear that only surrender would prevent slaughter and destruction at the hands of a huge French army. Against all odds, Garibaldi was determined to turn defeat into moral victory. On the evening of July 2, riding alongside his pregnant wife, Anita, he led 4,000 hastily assembled men to continue the struggle for national independence elsewhere. Hounded by both French and Austrian armies, the garibaldini marched hundreds of miles across the Appenines, Italy's mountainous spine, and after two months of skirmishes and adventures arrived in Ravenna with just 250 survivors. Best-selling author Tim Parks, together with his partner Eleonora, set out in the blazing summer of 2019 to follow Garibaldi and Anita's arduous journey through the heart of Italy. In The Hero's Way he delivers a superb travelogue that captures Garibaldi's determination, creativity, reckless courage, and profound belief. And he provides a fascinating portrait of Italy then and now, filled with unforgettable observations of Italian life and landscape, politics, and people.

In Afskeid van Europa lewer Karel Schoeman verslag van sy laaste twee besoeke aan Nederland, Duitsland en Oostenryk gedurende die herfs van 2011 en 2013. Dit is veral die stede Amsterdam, Berlyn, Dresden, Salzburg en Wene wat aandag kry en ook met Schoeman se vermoe om mense en plekke wat hy waarneem, in woorde tot gestalte te bring. By dit alles is daar ’n ondertoon van heimwee en gelatenheid omdat die skrywer voortdurend bewus is daarvan dat dit werklik sy laaste besoeke is en hy dikwels aan sy ouderdom herinner word: “‘Elderly,’ lees ek op my vliegkaartjie, ‘can’t walk long distance can sit gate close 15 minutes prior to departure.’ Dit is ek.” Maar afgesien van die element van afskeid, is dit Schoeman se belesenheid en sy vermoe om hede en verlede te skakel wat opval en hierdie boek ’n ryk leeservaring maak. Nie alleen die politieke geskiedenis nie, maar ook die verhale van die gewone mens soos dit in die letterkunde uitgebeeld is, word in verband gebring met die strate, parke, kerke en paleise van die groot stede wat hy besoek. Onvermydelik skryf hy oor die twee wereldoorloe se impak op mens en omgewing, maar ook die vasberade inisiatiewe om te restoureer en te herstel in stede soos Berlyn en Dresden. Die hede met sy massatoerisme, die gewonde daaglikse gang van sake en veral ook die tipiese geregte van die plekke wat hy besoek, verseker dat die boek vir eietydse reisigers ook relevant is.
**THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** 'As a chronicle of an extraordinary friendship between man and animal, and its unexpected consequences, it's entirely delightful' DAILY MAIL 'This uplifting retelling of their adventures together proves a welcome tonic' THE SUN 'Heartwarming and utterly charming' GUARDIAN 'A heart-warming and captivating travelogue' THE i 'A gorgeous book about their adventures, complete with photos that will melt your heart' Lorraine Kelly, ITV *** Instagram phenomenon @1bike1world Dean Nicholson reveals the full story of his life-changing friendship with rescue cat Nala and their inspiring adventures together on a bike journey around the world. When 30-year-old Dean Nicholson set off from Scotland to cycle around the world, his aim was to learn as much as he could about our troubled planet. But he hadn't bargained on the lessons he'd learn from his unlikely companion. Three months after leaving home, on a remote road in the mountains between Montenegro and Bosnia, he came across an abandoned kitten. Something about the piercing eyes and plaintive meowing of the bedraggled little cat proved irresistible. He couldn't leave her to her fate, so he put her on his bike and then, with the help of local vets, nursed her back to health. Soon on his travels with the cat he named Nala, they forged an unbreakable bond - both curious, independent, resilient and adventurous. The video of how they met has had 20 million views and their Instagram has grown to almost 750k followers - and still counting! Experiencing the kindness of strangers, visiting refugee camps, rescuing animals through Europe and Asia, Dean and Nala have already learned that the unexpected can be pretty amazing. Together with Garry Jenkins, writer with James Bowen of the bestselling A Street Cat Named Bob, Dean shares the extraordinary tale of his and Nala's inspiring and heart-warming adventure together.
A "New York Times Book Review" Notable Book of the Year
Die "ver paaie" in hierdie teks (wat in 1949 vir die eerste keer verskyn het) verwys na 'n reis wat die vertellende P.J. Schoeman deur die Kaokoveld in Suidwes-Afrika onderneem het. Deur die soektog na 'n wilde perd ontwikkel die reis egter in 'n verkenning van die gees en word die uiterlike gebeure met die romantiese verlange en die strewe na 'n onvervulde droom verbind.
