    Definitive Bucket List
    Spending the kids' inheritance. Growing old disgracefully. Life begins at 50. You see these catchy phrases on bumper stickers, tea towels and even t-shirts, but all jokes aside, there is one thing we all know - no matter how old our driver's license says we are, we all feel much younger at heart. And travel goes a long way in keeping you young. Inside this book you'll find hundreds of holiday ideas across Australia and New Zealand, from luxury escapes to walking holidays, bike rides, train journeys, golfing trips, garden tours and unforgettable wildlife encounters. Now that you've got the mortgage monkey off your back and a bit of a nest egg to spend, time on your hands if you have retired - or cut back on the working hours - and the kids are old enough to look after themselves (even if they haven't yet left home), it's the perfect time to travel, particularly while you're still fit and active enough to really enjoy it. After all, you've earned it.

  • Down Under Travels in a Sunburned Country
    Down Under Travels in a Sunburned Country
    It is the driest, flattest, hottest, most desiccated, infertile and climatically aggressive of all the inhabited continents and still Australia teems with life - a large portion of it quite deadly. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in a very nasty way than anywhere else.

    Ignoring such dangers - and yet curiously obsessed by them - Bill Bryson journeyed to Australia and promptly fell in love with the country. And who can blame him? The people are cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted and unfailingly obliging- their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water; the food is excellent; the beer is cold and the sun nearly always shines. Life doesn't get much better than this...

  • Fearless Footsteps True Stories That Capture the Spirit of Adventure
    Fearless Footsteps True Stories That Capture the Spirit of Adventure
    Travelling
    the world is an exhilarating, eye-opening, life-affirming experience. But it
    can also be scary to even think about. There are language barriers, borders to
    cross, planes to fly in, and of course, the mystery of an unknown land. It can
    be difficult to take the chance, even when you're yearning for adventure.


    This
    inspirational collection of true travel stories proves that the best journeys are
    to be had when you feel the fear but go anyway. From a nervous flier anxiously
    taking to the skies for the first time to a female traveller braving the Middle
    East, from a death-defying hike on an Indonesian volcano to the anxious freedom
    of finding yourself alone on the other side of the world, these stories are
    certain to send you looking for your passport.


    Created
    by the popular travel writing website, Intrepid Times, as part of an
    international writing competition that saw entries pouring in from across the
    globe, Fearless Footsteps is travel
    writing at both its most exhilarating and its most introspective. Covering
    every continent from Africa to Antarctica, these carefully selected stories get
    to the heart of what it means to be a traveller and see the world with courage,
    open-mindedness, and relentless curiosity.

  • Great Railway Journeys in Australia and New Zealand (2nd Edition)
    Great Railway Journeys in Australia and New Zealand (2nd Edition)
    An absorbing description of 35 trips that highlight some of the most interesting, scenic and rewarding railway journeys in New Zealand and Australia. They include the renowned long-distance journeys, such as The Northern Explorer in New Zealand's North Island that stretches from Wellington to Auckland, and The Indian Pacific in Australia that takes travellers on a three-day trip from Perth to Sydney, as well as journeys that traverse stunning scenery, such as New Zealand's TranzAlpine train or the Spirit of the Outback in Australia. Also included in this new edition is New Zealands' Coastal Pacific that runs between Picton and Christchurch, now fully operational again since being shut in the aftermath of the 2016 earthquake.

    There are also routes on which restored steam locomotives operate and other lines included for the wonder of their engineering. Trains are a great way to travel in these countries, taking you at ground level past superb scenery that often cannot be seen by any other means of transport. David Bowden's entertaining text describes the route, the major features of interest along the way and any special technical details about the locomotive or the track.

  • Hiking with Nietzsche: Becoming Who You Are
    Hiking with Nietzsche: Becoming Who You Are
    Hiking with Nietzsche: Becoming Who You Are is a tale of two philosophical journeys - one made by John Kaag as an introspective young man of nineteen, the other seventeen years later, in radically different circumstances: he is now a husband and father, and his wife and small child are in tow. Kaag sets off for the Swiss peaks above Sils Maria where Nietzsche wrote his landmark work Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Both of Kaag's journeys are made in search of the wisdom at the core of Nietzsche's philosophy, yet they deliver him to radically different interpretations and, more crucially, revelations about the human condition.

    Just as Kaag's acclaimed debut, American Philosophy: A Love Story, seamlessly wove together his philosophical discoveries with his search for meaning, Hiking with Nietzsche is a fascinating exploration not only of Nietzsche's ideals but of how his experience of living relates to us as individuals in the twenty-first century.

    Bold, intimate, and rich with insight, Hiking with Nietzsche is about defeating complacency, balancing sanity and madness, and coming to grips with the unobtainable. As Kaag hikes, alone or with his family, but always with Nietzsche, he recognizes that even slipping can be instructive. It is in the process of climbing, and through the inevitable missteps, that one has the chance, in Nietzsche's words, to 'become who you are'.

  • How to Live Japanese
    How to Live Japanese
    With nearly 60 per cent of us living in cities, the mega-city of Tokyo, through centuries of raze and rebuild, is surely the guiding light for how we can live together amicably in an ever-urbanising world.

    Not only is Japan the mother of all metropolis' but with two thirds of the country covered in forest, there is still much respect and celebration of the natural world, with people perfectly placed to make the most of the green space around them. From the art of making tea, to going for a hike, or celebrating imperfections, there are ceremonies the Japanese have been honing for centuries that thrive alongside modern traditions and practices of well-being.

    From Miyazaki to mountains, sake to sparking joy, find your Zen and make time to learn about how to live Japanese. Whether it's the cutting edge of film-making, revolutionizing the whisky market or competing with parents on lunchboxes, you'll be all the better for some time spent with How to Live Japanese.

    From Japanese writer, Yutaka Yazawa, this is the ultimate insider's guide to the country of Japan, full of inspiration and insight to help you experience the very best of Japanese design, cookery, philosophy, and culture. So get outdoors, be gracious to your neighbour and start harmonizing your all too busy life.
