Meet a baron from Brittany and the silkworm women of Dubrovnik. Take your chances on a rickety Chinese toboggan and get bucked off an ornery camel in the Sahara. Ride the Orient Express, a Japanese bullet train, and a Guatemalan bus. Enjoy a Zambezi River cruise at sunset - with an angry hippo. Share a Linzer Torte in Vienna with a Holocaust survivor. Here's top-notch adventure travel by award-winning international travel writers, and you don't even need to pack a suitcase or go through a security check to experience it. "May they grace you with wanderlust and wonder-lust," says Don George, Editor-at-Large for National Geographic Traveler and former San Francisco Chronicle Travel Editor. "The pieces in this anthology offer surprise, serendipity, connection, and personal transformation-all crucial ingredients for good travel writing. The collection proves, once again, that the Bay Area is home to so many talented storytellers." -Julia Cosgrove, VP and Editor-in-Chief of Afar magazine. "Travel is about seeing the world with new eyes, so from time to time it's worth taking a break from Theroux, Bryson, Morris, Iyer and Co. to discover fresh voices, and fresh perspectives. With stories ranging from the poignant to the hilarious, this collection of pieces by the Bay Area Travel Writers will give you a fresh set of eyes with which to see the world." -John Flinn, Former Travel Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle "Each entry in Travel Stories from Around the Globe zooms in on an unpredictable experience-a journey within a journey-that reveals more about a place than you'd ever learn from a guidebook. To read them is to be transported into other travelers' minds and shoes on journeys defined by open-mindedness and courage, curiosity and doubt. It will make you yearn to pack your bags and collect some travel stories of your own." -Janet Fullwood, Winner of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalist of the Year award "This world-girdling collection whisks us from New York, Canada, and Mexico to Italy, India, and Tibet. In its pages we ride the Orient Express and sail a luxury expedition ship, walk Alaska's Chilkoot Trail, explore Maya caves in Guatemala, soak in Japanese hot mud baths. We meet a master ice cream maker, learn the art of hula, and absorb unforgettable stories of courage and compassion. We re-appreciate the magnificent mosaic of the world. Happy reading-and happy travels!" -Don George, Legendary travel writer, editor, speaker, teacher, book reviewer, broadcaster and all-around bon vivant.
