THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS: TRAVEL STORIES THAT MAKE YOUR HEART GROW
This is a collection of stories by accomplished travellers and adventurous souls who have completed daring journeys through challenging terrain, adventuring from the Calais Jungle to the Amazon, from Land’s End to the Gobi Desert, from New Guinea to Iran and many other places in between. Each has a story to tell of a time when they were vulnerable, when they were in need and a kind stranger came to their rescue.
These are stories that make our hearts grow, stories that will restore our faith in the world and remind us that, despite what the media says, the world isn't a scary place – rather, it is filled with Kind Strangers just like us.

MONGOLIA: THE BRADT TRAVEL GUIDE (3RD ED.)
The 'Land of Blue Sky' is one of the few places on earth where travellers can tread on undiscovered ground and explore with a true sense of adventure. Homeland of Genghis Khan, vast tracts can be discovered on horse or camel, or in the comfort of a four-wheel drive. This updated guide highlights Mongolia’s culture and customs including the deel, the colourful national dress, herding rules and customs, Mongolian throat singing and Naadam, the annual celebration of wrestling, archery and horse-riding. The guide offers tips on riding and biking tours, winter dog sledding and summer yoga camps and provides in-depth information on national parks and conservation as well as reviewing the many new hotels and restaurants.
