This guidebook describes the 570km (354 mile) Traumpfad or 'Dream Way', an Alpine trek from Munich's Mariënplatz to the Piazza San Marco in Venice. The route is broken into 30 stages of between 5hrs 30mins and 9hrs, graded according to difficulty, with 5 alternative stages and the option to spend a day traversing a section of via ferrata in the Dolomites. Previous experience of Alpine trekking is not necessary as the route is suitable for most able walkers: however, a head for heights is essential. Known as 'Europe's playground', the Alps boast an unrivalled walking infrastructure and breath-taking views of angular peaks, flower-strewn valleys and verdant slopes. Hugely popular with German trekkers but little-known in the English-speaking world, Der Traumpfad revels in this stunning scenery. The route passes through German Bavaria then Austria before entering the Italian Tyrol, taking advantage of the region's extensive network of mountain huts for accommodation en route. With custom-designed mapping and stunning colour photography, the guide has all you need to get the best from your trek. Alongside detailed route descriptions, there is useful practical advice on when to go, what to take and refreshment stops, background information on the region's fascinating history, plants and wildlife and full contact details for over 80 places to stay. The result is an ideal companion to discovering this amazing route, regarded by many German trekkers as 'the hiking experience of a lifetime'.

A guidebook to trekking the Slovene High Level Route, crossing Slovenia from Austria to the Adriatic. The 500km route is described in a series of 3-6 day treks of all levels of difficulty, which can be completed as single sections or linked in a number of ways for longer holidays. From Maribor, close by the Austrian border in the north-east, to Ankaran on the Adriatic coast in the south-west, the route covers 500km of outstanding mountain and upland walking: the vast forested plateau of Pohorje, the sheer limestone peaks of the Julian and Kamnik-Savinja Alps with their via ferrata protected routes, the traditional alpine pastures and flower-strewn ridges of the Karavanke, and the forested hills and olive groves of the limestone karst country that stretch towards the coast.

The Pyrenean High-Level Route is probably the most beautiful, spectacular and challenging trek in the Pyrenees. Unlike the GR10 and GR11, the trek from Hendaye to Banyuls-sur-Mer crosses the French Spanish border many times, exploring both sides of the mountain range and staying as close as possible to the main ridge of the Pyrenees. The 800km unwaymarked route is described in 45 day stages, and there are numerous alternative routes that allow you to avoid a difficult section, should weather conditions not be in your favour. The guidebook includes practical information on villages, mountain huts, guesthouses, hotels and campsites, with variant routes and the optional ascents of ten classic summits: Grande Fache, Vignemale, Le Taillon, Pimene, Pic Perdiguere, Pico de Aneto, Montardo d'Aran, Mont Roig, Pic de Certascan and Pica d'Estats.

In this collection of profiles, essays and travel stories, Chatwin takes us to Benin, where he is arrested as a mercenary during a coup; to Boston to meet an LSD guru who believes he is Christ; to India with Indira Ghandi when she attempted a political comeback in 1978; and to Nepal where he reminds us that 'Man's real home is not a house, but the Road, and that life itself is a journey to be walked on foot'

In Lost Paradise, Nooteboom sets out to connect two seemingly unrelated strangers whom he has glimpsed on his travels, and to explore the major impact that small interactions can have on the course of our journeys. A beautiful woman aboard a Berlin-bound flight becomes Alma, a young lady who leaves her parents' Sao Paolo home on a hot summer night in a fit of depression. Her car engine dies in one of the city's most dangerous favelas, a mob surrounds her, and she is pulled from the automobile. To escape her memory of the assault, she flees across the world, to Australia, where she becomes involved in the beautiful but bizarre Angel Project. Not long after, Dutch literary critic Erik Zontag is in Perth, Australia, for a conference. He has found a winged woman curled up in a closet in an empty house. He reaches out, and for a second allows his fingertips to brush her feathers—and then she speaks. The intersection of their paths illuminates the extraordinary coincidences that propel our lives.

In 1953, the 25 year old Che Guevara embarked on a journey along the spine of the Andes to Mexico that is retraced by many travellers today. He wanted to explore his continent and its cultural heritage, to understand what it meant to be Latin American. It was an experience which, culminating as it did in his first meeting with Fidel Castro, was to affect his political thinking radically. His diaries and letters home reveal not only a traveller who was brilliantly alert to all her saw around him, but also the revolutionary in the making.
