A passionate, thought-provoking exploration of walking as a political and cultural activity, from the author of Orwell's Roses Drawing together many histories--of anatomical evolution and city design, of treadmills and labyrinths, of walking clubs and sexual mores--Rebecca Solnit creates a fascinating portrait of the range of possibilities presented by walking. Arguing that the history of walking includes walking for pleasure as well as for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit focuses on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from philosophers to poets to mountaineers. She profiles some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction--from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja--finding a profound relationship between walking and thinking and walking and culture. Solnit argues for the necessity of preserving the time and space in which to walk in our ever more car-dependent and accelerated world.

You undoubtedly have wanderlust if you're constantly daydreaming about exploring the world, rarely feel settled in one area, and have itching feet on a daily basis. Wanderlust is a strong urge to wander or travel around the world and discover new things. Wanderlust is a feeling that has nothing to do with the glitz and glam of flying, but there isn't much glitz and glam about flying these days. It's all about the novelty of seeing new locations and experiencing new things. The human brain is highly sensitive to novelty and finds it quite rewarding. We are constantly looking for fresh and intriguing things, and our brain makes completely new information "stand out." "Wanderlust" is a collection of stories, poems and articles that talks about wanderlust and travelling diaries.

This book documents the impulses that drive Elisabeth Eaves' insatiable hunger for the rush of the unfamiliar. She is both restless vagabond and astute observer as she crisscrosses five continents, chasing the exotic in both culture and romance. She loses herself in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, rekindles old love and new passion in Cairo, and finds an intinerant brotherhood of raucous men in the land Down Under. Like the random possessions she leaves in her wake, from Australia to Yemen, she also leaves behind a string of lovers. But this is about more than just sensual conquest; it is also a journey of self-discovery, in which her pursuit ultimately guides her home - back cover.

Could an American woman, already a grandmother, enjoy living her life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a country known as one of the world’s most repressive societies? A country with a vision of women and their freedoms different from what she was accustomed to? What the author found there, instead, were magical days, sand dunes reaching to the sky, unforgettable encounters, renown Bedouin hospitality, and a new love. All these new experiences led to a path of awareness and self-confidence that gave a new color to the life of a woman who wasn’t finished exploring the world and learning from it. Find in these pages a new perspective on Saudi Arabia and a woman’s rebirth in the beauties of a country too often considered devoid of wonders. As a child, Ava Kabouchy was fascinated by world maps, which later turned into travels to many parts of the world. She has worked in several African countries, created a microcredit group for women in Honduras, and did a volunteer photography gig for a clinic for a Mayan community in a remote mountainous region of Guatemala. Recently, she hiked along the Camino de Santiago in Spain and in France, and traveled in Morocco, fulfilling a childhood dream of walking barefoot in the Sahara. Saudi Arabia was never on Ava’s list of travel destinations, but when she was offered a teaching position in Riyadh, she immediately knew that she would accept it. Already a grandmother when she left for Riyadh, she found new friends, adventures she could never have imagined, love, and a new lease on life. Ava is the author of the recently published Where in the World is Grammie Now?, a book for young readers to teach them about Saudi Arabia, a country not often studied in middle school curricula. The book also encourages other Grammies not to listen to what they say, but to go see. Ava makes her home in southwest France and on a remote island off the coast of Maine, USA.

People We Meet on Vacation meets The Unhoneymooners in this sparkling debut romantic comedy about two near strangers—and complete opposites—who win a radio contest for a trip around the world. Love's about to take flight. Feeling stuck at work and tired of London’s dreary weather, magazine writer Dylan Coughlan impulsively rings a radio station one day only to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip around the world. The catch? Her travel partner must be a contact randomly selected on her phone. And of course this stressful game of contact roulette lands on a number listed only as Jack the Posho, an uptight, unbearably posh guy she met on a night out and accidentally ghosted. The two couldn’t be more different, and as the trip kicks off, Jack seems like he’d sooner fling himself into the sun than have a conversation with Dylan. But more is hinging on this trip than the chance to see the world. For the past two years, Dylan’s been relegated to writing quizzes (and only quizzes) at her lifestyle magazine after an article about her past abortion went viral—and not in the good way. If she’s able to make a series about their trip successful, her overbearing boss will give her a chance at a permanent column. Dylan’s willing to do anything to make the series a hit, even if it means embellishing her and Jack’s relationship to satisfy readers. But as the column’s popularity grows, so does the bond between Dylan and Jack, and Dylan is forced to consider if the one thing she thought she always wanted is worth the price she'll have to pay to get there.
