This Book is About Travel by Andrew Hyde Amazon Digital Services (e-book) This is travel writing with a difference. It will dissuade you from visiting some places others clamour to reach, while showing you appealing sides to destinations deemed too dangerous for tourists. Except, of course, Andrew Hyde isn't so much a tourist as a traveller, although he is the first to ridicule people who label others: 'The funny thing about someone calling a traveller 'not real' is that travel is really anything that puts you out of your comfort zone.' Hyde's book is impressive for having been written on the road. Although it would have benefited from several edits, the emotion of the moment comes through, especially in his piece on trekking the Annapurna circuit in Nepal, which made him want to stop tourism in that country because, he believed, it was helping accelerate its demise. So powerful was the blog that he received death threats. Readers will appreciate his inclusion of others' websites, including www.indagare.com . Some might appreciate his advice on how to find free guides: simply tail your average 'Mark' or 'Sue' to see where they take you.
