I love the Bradt travel Guides & Sawdays Special Places to Stay so can highly recommend their new collaboration showcasing SLOW TRAVEL. The first in this new series is The Slow Guide to Devon & Exmoor' by Hilary Bradt herself :-)

I have just finished reading 'A journey without maps' by Graham Greene. An exciting biographical story about the authors trip to West Africa where he undertook the exploration of the inside of Liberia on foot.

A story of dedication, mental & physical suffering, sacrifice and insight into Liberia in 1936. A definite choice for those interested in travel, exploration and downright descriptive beauty!

Here is the link if you wish to buy it, or follow this link to discover more literature from West Africa.

Lost Angel Walkabout—One Traveler’s Tales is a spirited collection of travel narratives recounting the haps, mishaps, and serendipitous adventures that give, travel-writer Linda Ballou, a sense of wonder and delight. Some of the stories like “Falling in the Footsteps of John Muir” and “Look Both Ways on Small Islands” are reflections that might make you glad you stayed home, while “River Wise” could inspire you to toss the TV clicker out the window and to explore our beautiful planet. All of the stories take you to special places where you share the sensual experience of being there without straining one muscle, getting altitude sickness, or tipping your canoe.

Never too late to start, Vera. I'm just back from volunteering in Dominican Republic. I present a Powerpoint show in this area called "Seeing the world through a volunteer's eyes." I'm passionate about the different insights one receives in any country as a volunteer rather than as a tourist.

Hi Dorothy: Thanks for subscribing to A Traveler's Library. Your book sounds very interesting, but at A Traveler's Library, I generally stick to books that are all about one place. I wrote a long article about volunteer travel a couple of years ago, and the whole concept fascinates me. I wish I had done some of it starting a long time ago.
