About the Book
Time is running out. Television, the internet, modern transport and globalisation mean that the world is becoming ever more homogenised. Many places have already lost their innocence or been spoilt by mass tourism. Others will soon. And the planet’s environment is slowly being destroyed by over-population. Places which just a few decades ago had crystal clear air, pristine water and azure skies are now murky and brown.
Like many of us, I spent a good deal of my adulthood hostage to a mortgage. In 2004, at age 47, I realised there was more to life, got my first passport and a decent camera, and jumped on a jumbo. It didn’t take long for the travel bug to bite. This book is a collection of some of the experiences from the peregrinations I’ve done since, some independently, with friends or family, others in organised tours covering a full spectrum of styles. Over a thousand stunning colour photographs, including many that have been used by travel companies in their brochures and advertising. Enjoy.
Like most of us, Graham Meale spent a good deal of his life hostage to a mortgage. In 2004, at age 47, he realised that there was more to life, got his first passport and began working hard to fill it up. His goal is to see every nation on Earth that doesn’t have a McDonalds.
