Sailing the Nubian Sands

Sudan Travel Expedition March 2012   Guest Review: Alice Byers c ustom trip to Sudan   My friend Taddy and I were seeking another trip. We had loved travelling together last year in Ethiopia , just the two of us with a guide and some drivers on an itinerary arranged by my stalwart tour operator Wildland Adventures . It’s not easy for Taddy and I to find a trip that accommodates both of us! She has travelled in twice as many countries as I have, and we don’t entirely share areas of future interest.

10 Must Read Travel Books

  Most travelers relish a good read as enthusiastically as they book their next plane ticket, for when the body is forced to stay put, a book at least allows the mind to wander limitlessly. Our Wild staff members are no exception and when we aren’t traveling, creating a new trip or writing and talking about adventure travel, we’re reading about our destinations in the form of guide books, novels, conservation journals, poli-sci essays – you name it! Here are some of our must-reads, organized by region, for your next global adventure with Wildland!  India & Asia  1.  Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard by Kirin Desai For a change of pace in Indian literature, which can often be depressing, I recommend this book.
