Here are a few of my favourite books.
The Oxford Book of Exploration
So you think places have changed since you first went there? Incredible insight into what the world used to be like.
Fantastically useful reference for planning a trip anywhere in the world.
Extreme Rambling: Walking Isreals Separation Barrier. For Fun.
No-one does funny, serious and informative quite as well as Mark Thomas.
Blood River: A journey to Africa’s broken heart
A brilliant and brave journey.
Travel (on two wheels)
A genuinely inspirational journey. Sets the bar extremely high for adventurous cycling.
The original two-wheeled journey, and the book that inspired Ewan MacGregor and the Boring-man.
I love all of Rupert Thomson’s books.
The story of how a lonely man makes friends with a penguin.
Surprisingly easy read, and totally gripping from the outset.
Dark, brilliant and as usual with Flann O’Brian, more than slightly surreal.
You need more spaceships!
