For over 20 years, Bradt Guides has run a prestigious travel-writing competition – for both new and previously published writers. Edited by a former winner of the competition, and with a foreword by Bradt Guides founder, Hilary Bradt, Travel Write brings together nearly a hundred of the most colourful and fascinating entries that have caught the judges’ eyes.
The Irresponsible Traveller
In this collection of 40 true stories, leading figures from the world of travel writing and broadcasting lay bare the less glamorous side of their jobs, sharing their more hair-raising or comical experiences on the road. They describe facing bloodthirsty bandits in Brazil, smuggling currency out of Zimbabwe in a train toilet, freeing turtles during a midnight raid on the Amazon, and fleeing a love-sick sea lion in Antarctica. Often hilarious – and sometimes downright terrifying – these are the tales that tend not to make it into the magazine articles or TV tie-ins.
Kidding Around is a collection of 35 true tales – plus a poem – about the perils and pleasures of travel with children, from ill-tempered toddlers to world-weary teenagers.
The stories take you to locations across five continents. There’s plenty of adventurous travel, including trekking with tots in the Himalayas, sailing en famille across the Atlantic Ocean, and the first circumnavigation of Mauritius by bicycle. Find out what happened when a father inadvertently took his daughters to a brothel, and read how one family turned up six hours early for a flight… and still managed to miss it.
Tales are hair-raising, comical or just plain fun, and feature magical moments with wild creatures or in wild places. For anyone who has ever travelled with their precious offspring, or wondered what it’s like to head into the unknown with little ones in tow, Kidding Around is a cautionary and captivating read.
