If you´re traveling the world - or if you just want to travel the world from your armchair - this audiobook will enlighten and amuse you. It could add a few unusual stops to your itinerary, as well.We suggest some intriguing natural sights, such as the perfectly conical Chocolate Hills, Indian pilgrimage mountains topped by temples, whole forests of identikit crooked trees, and volcanoes inside volcanoes.Perhaps festivals are more to your taste. Would you prefer the anarchic creativity of Burning Man, a Japanese cry-baby competition, or a massive food fight? We´ll also tell you which major city still lets shepherds drive their flocks through the streets every autumn.If you´ve ever wondered where you can see the most human skulls in one place, we have a whole section on macabre sights that will answer that question and many more. A slightly different take on the impermanence of human life comes with industrial tourism, from abandoned whaling stations to massive salt mines.If you enjoy shopping on your travels, we have a whole section devoted to great markets and funfairs, including flea markets, souks, and even specialized markets where you can shop for Buddhist amulets. And we finish with a look at alternatives to the bucket list for travelers who want to avoid the crowds and explore somewhere a bit different.Plus, because the internet (as everyone knows) is made of cats, we have the purrfect section on cat islands, cat cafes, cat temples and even a whole city called Cat.Perhaps you´re just too busy this year for that round-the-world trip. But this book could give you ideas…and deliver a lot of fun facts en route.This book will uncover hidden gems you never knew existed! It takes travelling to a whole new level! 1. Language: English.

When an unexpected find is made in the deserts east of Luxor, Chyna Stone and the Found History team are brought in to help with the excavation of the Chambers of Ay. As they explore the underground maze of forgotten corridors and hidden passageways, they become keenly aware that there is much more to this discovery than meets the eye. A discovery that reaches down through the ages. It´s called the Egyptian Book of Life - an ancient, and priceless text dating back to the rule of the Pharaoh Djoser - and Chyna and her team might just have stumbled upon a clue to its final location. Now hot on the trail, Chyna and her team travel through Egypt and Turkey and parts unknown, soon coming into contact with a secret society of men who are sworn to protect the secret of the Book of Life and its location. But when treachery is discovered among her team, Chyna will find herself on the run...all while following a cryptic trail of clues that will lead to the Book of Life...or to her death. But Chyna Stone is no ordinary archaeologist - she´s an adventurer through and through - and she will do all she can to preserve history and to protect the lives of those she cares most about...all while uncovering the true secret of The Mummy Codex. 1.

Sam Manicom´s dynamic fourth book is an enticing yet frequently challenging motorcycle journey across the dramatic landscapes of Mexico, the United States and Canada. Sam´s partner Birgit is no longer a novice motorcyclist - riding through southern Africa and South America turned her into a rider capable of facing any challenge. But Sam was worried. As they arrived into North America they had been travelling around the world by motorcycle for six years and he was beginning to think that North America was going to be easy; too easy in fact. Were all the challenges of travel in the developing world countries going to be missing? Sam couldn´t have been more wrong. Samuel Johnson wrote, ´´The use of travelling is to regulate imagination by reality and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them how they are.´´ After all, aren´t these some of the main reasons for going travelling? To experience as many different things and ways of life as possible? To discover new and wonderful things, but also to have preconceived ideas challenged. This true-life story has more twists and turns than a Rocky Mountain Pass, and more surprises than anyone could expect. As it did them, at times it could challenge you too. Woven into this surprising story are canyons, cowboys, idyllic beaches, bears, mountains, Californian Vineyards, gun-toting policemen with grudges, glaciers, exploding volcanoes, dodgy border crossings, and some of the most stunning open roads that a traveler could ever wish to see. A gripping rollercoaster of a journey across North America. Sam and Birgit are thrown into a completely new set of challenges. These adventures bring alive the history, geography, human relationships and the pure joy of the open road. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Manicom.
