'Inspiring, well-written and well put together.' [Unforgettable Journeys] ', Geographical ."This beautifully illustrated book [Unforgettable Journeys] includes journeys that will satisfy the adventurer in all of us. Tracking mountain gorillas in Rwanda? No problem. Shackleton's voyage to Antarctica? Piece of cake. There are practical details if you want to tackle any of the trips. For the less intrepid there are journeys closer to home - walking with Wordsworth in England and a horse-drawn wagon trip around Ireland.", Sunday Telegraph ."This book [Unforgettable Things] does exactly what it says on the tin: it is packed with gorgeous images of places that you really, really want to visit - and makes you slightly hate the authors for having been able to do all these things ... And since more of us are eschewing beach holidays and choosing trips with a life-changing experience built in, it can almost be seen as a tick-list for the get-up-and-go crowd.", Nicki Symington, Observer ."With 40 recommendations, the great photos and inspirational text of this book crystallise exactly what we all love about travel.", Wanderlust
