From the former CEO of renowned travel guide publisher Lonely Planet, a look at how travel can transform not only the traveler, but also the world. When Daniel Houghton was just twenty-four, he took the helm of one of the world's most iconic travel brands, Lonely Planet. This young visionary had to learn a lot, and fast-but luckily, the world was his classroom. In Wherever You Go, he shares his inspiring story of how constant travel opened his eyes to a greater diversity of experiences and perspectives than he could ever have imagined. He conducts in-depth interviews with other avid travelers-some professionals, some not-about how their own adventures have opened their minds and ignited other passions. Houghton explores the growing trend of mindful travel, a term that embraces not only green practices and leaving a light footprint, but also intellectual curiosity and respectful observance of other cultures-and a focus on living in the moment rather than posting the perfect photo on social media. He shows how we can practice this mindset even on the local level, when traveling to a new restaurant or exploring a new neighborhood. Woven throughout are fascinating travel stories from luminaries such as Barack Obama, Airbnb founder Brian Chesky, and Jane Goodall-people for whom travel has become not just a pleasure, but a meaningful life purpose.
You don't have to travel far to discover a world of new experiences. From new ways to connect with friends, family and the community, to appreciating art and unleashing your creative side, Lonely Planet shows you how to explore new cultures, meet new people and have amazing adventures - every day. When we travel, we see the world with new eyes, eat new foods, and meet people from different cultures. We learn, we explore, we challenge ourselves - and return all the better for having refreshed and renewed our outlook. But how often do we take that sense of adventure and apply it to our daily lives when we're back home? Explore Every Day encourages you to discover your creativity, your inner adventurer and your community. Some of these prompts take one minute, like learning to breathe deeply, while others a full day or more, such as camping in your living room. But most take anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour, so they're perfect to fit into your daily routine. Daily prompts include: Admiring the next piece of street art you see as if it were hanging in an art gallery Watching a film from the first country that comes to mind, and writing a short review Spending one full minute really, truly feeling the weather Drawing a map of your hometown Going on a holiday near your house by staying in a nearby youth hostel or hotel Getting off the bus or train at a station you've never been to before Borrowing a dog and taking it for a walk Waking up early to listen to the dawn chorus in a local park or woodland Learning one new constellation Calling an older relative and saying hi About Lonely Planet: Lonely Planet is a leading travel media company and the world's number one travel guidebook brand, providing both inspiring and trustworthy information for every kind of traveller since 1973.

Whether you are making a long grand tour or just planning a couple of weekend breaks, Europe by Rail is the perfect guide. The book describes over 50 key routes in detail. Together, they span mainland Europe and - brand new for this 16th edition - now also the British Isles. Each route can be followed in its entirety or used as a building block in a longer itinerary. Beyond the main routes you will find worthwhile excursions well off the beaten track. Written by two highly experienced travellers, Europe by Rail contains useful tips about how to plan your journey, what tickets to buy and where to stop off along the way. There are special sections for holders of rail passes, including Interrail and Eurail, as well as information on night trains. The country guide summarizes key information about travelling by train through each of the four dozen countries listed. Apart from being full of good advice and up-to-date information, Europe by Rail is also a great read. With its nicely opinionated style and lots of cameo accounts of travel history, there's plenty here for armchair travellers too.
