This is our annual collection of the best travel writing of the year, much of it never published before, from big names in travel literature and emerging new writers. The Best Travel Writing Volume 9 is the latest in the annual Travelers' Tales series launched in 2004 to celebrate the world's best travel writing - from Nobel Prize winners to emerging new writers. The points of view and perspectives are global, and themes encompass high adventure, spiritual growth, romance, hilarity and misadventure, service to humanity, and encounters with exotic cuisines and cultures. It includes winners from the annual Solas Awards for Best Travel Writing. Since 1993, Travelers' Tales has been publishing award-winning books about the world, adventure, spirituality, and the life-changing experiences that take place on the road. The Best Travel Writing series follows this tradition by presenting in an annual volume the best travel stories from writers around the world.

Good true short stories for light reading, like on a trip. I found some of these more interesting than others and suspect others will have somewhat different favorites. Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής
