Description

A trek across Asia on the “hippie trail” of the early 1970s led Tony Wheeler to write the very first Lonely Planet guide and the New York Times to describe him as “the trailblazing patron saint of the world’s backpackers and adventure travelers.” Whether traveling through some of the most repressive and dangerous regimes in the world (Badlands), cycling the Cairo to Cape Town Tour d’Afrique or heading to Baikonur in Kazakhstan to see a “space tourist” ride a Soyuz rocket up to the international space station, Tony Wheeler is the man with the answers on international travel.
