The French Paper Book of the Month, February 2010: “A very humorous tale of adventure.” In a sweeping panorama which takes in everything from slug sex to the legacy of the Romantics and... More > the future of the European brown bear, If You Only Walk Long Enough is a portrait of the French Pyrenees as they move into the 21st century. It is also the story of a solitary walker and a long-distance footpath, the Pyrenean Way (GR10). When he set out from the Atlantic coast, Steve Cracknell thought he was heading for the Mediterranean on a trail which ambled through the foothills. He ended up with crampons on his boots crossing glaciers to tackle the highest peaks of the range. On the way he met a trainee priest relying on God for orientation, an electrified walker, a precision parachutist and a veritable flock of shepherds. In a book which is by turns witty and thoughtful he treads lightly across the landscape, concluding that the Pyrenees are changing rapidly. Now is the time to discover them.< Less

For two years we planed and prepared for a trip on US Route 50 from Ocean City, Maryland, to San Francisco, California. We believe that Route 50 crosses some of the most beautiful parts of America.... More > On May the First we watched the sun rise above the Atlantic Ocean and departed on our journey to the Pacific Ocean where we observed the sunset twenty-one days later. Our trip was memorable and inspirational. As we crossed the country we met and talked with people from different backgrounds and affiliations. Everybody was proud of his or her heritage and place of residency. America the Beautiful is the greatest country on Earth. We still can see the colorful canyons in Utah. As we crossed the Green River, our thoughts went with John Powell as he explored this territory in 1869. I hope my book will encourage other to take a journey across America and see this beautiful country. Only those who have experienced the tranquility of nature will fight to preserve it Our public land is not for sale!< Less

More > Campbell’s division of the army, adding my mite to the four successive victorious actions — Ramnugger, Sadoolapore, Chillianwallah, and Guzerat — that I first conceived the idea of exploring Central Equatorial Africa. My plan was made with a view to strike the Nile at its head, and then to sail down that river to Egypt. It was conceived, however, not for geographical interest, so much as for a view I had in my mind of collecting the fauna of those regions, to complete and fully develop a museum in my father’s house, a nucleus of which I had already formed from the rich menageries of India, the Himalaya Mountains, and Tibet. My idea in selecting the new field for my future researches was, that I should find within it various orders and species of animals hitherto unknown.< Less

''So what do you think boss, are we catching up?'' This is one of many typical questions you as a foreigner will be confronted with very often. Usually I was used to answer this quite politely by... More > saying something nice but after spending some time traveling around I was set to build some firm opinion. What do they mean by catching up? It all depends on what do you consider by being modern developed country. Do you refer to all these new buildings, roads and shopping centres giving false first impression of developed region where by the way price is enormous by means of deforestation of the whole region? I think I will never understand this competition race to catch up with allegedly developed western countries. Traveling in the Far East is an exceptional experience for any Westerner. The Orient is ancient and mystical and has far more to offer by means of people, history, traditions, and last but not least nature than our socially half-empty western civilization.< Less
