Unexpected stories from unexpected places.

Many places can feel like nowhere: a desert, an isolated village, even themiddle of a bustling, impersonal city. And then something happens: an adventure, a revelation, an experience that changes the whole landscape. The discovery that every place is the centre of the world to somebody and has its own riches and wonders. The authors of these 30 real-life tales fi nd passion, surprise and illumination in the middle of Borneo orBeijing, in a Mayan mountain village, along a timeworn trail in Tuscany, on an isolated South Pacific island, or under a desert moon in Mali.

These richly varied stories all celebrate and illuminate one simple truth: if we embark on each adventure with an open heart and an open mind, travel will take us places we never planned to go, and enrich and enlighten us in ways we never otherwise would have known.

Featuring stories by: Athony Satiin • Danny Wallace • Jason Elliot • Pam Houston • Ralph Potts • Pico Iyer • Tim Cahill • Sim Winchester
