By captivating millions during his six-year, 50-country tenure as The New York Times´ ´´Frugal Traveler´´, Seth Kugel has become one of our most internationally beloved travel writers. While his famously unassuming journeys around the globe have forged a signature philosophy of whimsy and practicality, they have also revealed the seemingly infinite booby traps of on-the-grid tourism. In a book with widespread cultural reverberations, Kugel takes the modern travel industry to task, determined to reignite humanity´s age-old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity - obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor, and Starwood points. Woven throughout with vivid tales of his perfectly imperfect adventures, Rediscovering Travel explains - often hilariously - how to make the most of new digital technologies without being shackled to them. For the tight-belted tourist and the first-class flyer, the eager student and the comfort-seeking retiree, Kugel reveals how we too can rediscover the joy of discovery. 1. Language: English.

The attractions of Thailand are endless - ancient monasteries, ruined cities, Buddhist monks, rave parties, colorful hill tribes, exotic wildlife, floating markets, dense rainforests, tropical islands, pristine coral reefs, and golden beaches. Then there´s Bangkok, the liveliest capital city in Southeast Asia, which would justify a trip to Thailand in itself. Don´t rush to try and fit everything in. You´ll almost certainly start your adventures in Bangkok and we suggest that you don´t hurry around. Alternatively, allow a couple of days to soak up the capital´s lively atmosphere, including at least one night on the notorious Khao San Road, before going north to Thailand´s second city Chiang Mai or south to the islands. To do both, you´ll need at least a fortnight; if you´ve got a few weeks to spare, add the infamous Bridge Over the River Kwai and Kanchanaburi to your list. In this Thailand Travel Guide, you will also be discovering the notorious cities and provinces that are Pattaya and Phuket. They are world-renowned and popular for their nightlife and scenery. Pattaya is always a lively and a fun city to be in. This vibrant coastal city shot to fame in the early 1980s and remained so. From dawn to dusk, Pattaya´s beaches are always brimming with life, as sun worshippers and water sports lovers constantly take to the waters. After dark, the action shifts to the streets, as partygoers explore its lively nightlife scene, where partying and drinking continue until early hours. With stunning tropical sunsets and spectacular scenery, a warm blue sea awaits you at Asia´s most popular beach destination. Phuket provides an unbeatable combination of silky, clean white sand and palm tree-lined beaches with great value accommodation and superb hospitality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kollins.

Mungo Park’s Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa has long been regarded as a classic of African travel literature. In fulfilling his mission to find the Niger River and in documenting its potential as an inland waterway for trade, Park was significant in opening Africa to European economic interests. His modest, low-key heroism made it possible for the British public to imagine themselves as a welcomed force in Africa. As a tale of adventure and survival, it has inspired the imaginations of audiences since its first publication in 1799 and writers from Wordsworth and Melville to Conrad, Hemingway, and T. Coreghessan Boyle have acknowledged the influence of Park’s narrative on their work. Unlike the large expeditions that followed him, Park traveled only with native guides or alone. Without much of an idea of where he was going, he relied entirely on local people for food, shelter, and directions throughout his eventful 18-month journey. While his warm reaction to the people he met made him famous as a sentimental traveler, his chronicle also provides a rare written record of the lives of ordinary people in West Africa before European intervention. His accounts of war, politics, and the spread of Islam, as well as his constant confrontations with slavery as practiced in 18th-century West Africa, are as valuable today as they were in 1799. Park’s narrative serves as a crucial text in relation to scholarship on the history of slavery, colonial enterprise, and 19th-century imperialism. The availability of this full edition will give a new generation of listeners access to a travel narrative that has inspired others over two centuries and will enliven scholarly discussion in many fields. 1.
