    You feel it as you leave the plane. You feel it when you wake the next morning and throw open the bedroom window. You feel it the moment you step out into the hubbub of an unfamiliar city’s dusk for the first time. When you go somewhere new, its newness seeps into you in an…

    At Rough Guides, we’ve always applauded travellers who incorporate a bit of volunteering into their round-the-world trips when feasible. After all, lending a hand at an animal sanctuary or teaching local kids can be a wonderful way to give something back – and enrich your travel experience while you’re at it. Helping out on infrastructural projects is another common…

    Rough Guides authors and editors have made some pretty unconventional journeys over the years, but crash-landing in the steamy Peruvian jungle is a new one on us. That said, for an adventure as epic as the one you’re about to take, it’s an entirely appropriate beginning. For from the moment you set off from the…

    And they say the golden age of travel is over… Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus and Captain Cook weren’t bad at this game – but they missed a bit. A big bit, filled with treasure-crammed islands, ancient monuments, volcanoes and legendary creatures. That’s where you come in. We’re all for looking after the environment at Rough Guides. And travelling…

    The fabled Trans-Siberian Express is arguably the world’s greatest journey. The legendary railway tackles the vastness of Russia in such a way that it becomes something to be appreciated, with the locomotive making its way across the landscape, unhurried and untroubled. Now, crank up the drama to eleven and you have the Aurora, a heavily…

    With everything from rolling hills, valleys and craggy mountain passes to sodden heath, windswept moor and sparkling lakes, Great Britain sure packs a lot in. At Rough Guides, we usually advise against trying to see everything a location has to offer in one trip. Not this time. But if you are going to see it…

    The word “epic” is overused, especially in travel. Epic adventures, epic views, epic journeys. Come on – when your hotel’s breakfast buffet is epic, is anything? The word more correctly (some might say snootily) refers to those long (some might say interminable) tales of heroic adventure from classical times, particularly classical Greek times. The first…

    We travellers love to seek out the old, cobbled, timeworn corners of cities and turn our noses up at the glistening new builds. It’s part of the reason that ruins are so irresistible. Then there are the unfinished places, of which Barcelona’s Sagrada Família is the most celebrated example. Do we ever want Gaudí’s masterpiece…

A young girl with Cerebral Palsy has suddenly realized that she doesn’t have to sit and watch her friends have all the fun playing video games anymore.
