Travelling light

Travel books are a very different kettle of fish. They range from guidebooks produced by tourist boards to exciting tales of daring-do.

The intrepid traveller who crosses deserts, scales mountains and shoots rapids equipped with little more than a change of underwear, a toothbrush and a blunt penknife will clearly have a fascinating tale to tell.

It is, however, worth bearing in mind that, more often than not, our canny explorer already has a publishing contract signed and sealed before the toe of his or her walking boot hits the floor of the departure lounge at Heathrow airport.
