Travel is the basis of true adventure, and a thirst for adventure lies at the heart of the most memorable travel.

Lonely Planet...On the Edge follows the fortunes and misfortunes of the world's best travel writers in jungles and on the seas, off the beaten track and even off the planet. On foot, on camel or on a sailing ship: Lonely Planet...On The Edge will enthral you from start to finish.
