The Golden Age of Travel

Marc Walter

Wanderlust Rediscover the golden age of adventure Global travel can be a wearying business: Mass tourism, overcrowded planes, chaotic airports, heightened security, cookie-cutter hotel chains, well-worn tourist trails. Finding even a sliver of adventure can sometimes feel impossible. But take heart: For all of us with an unfulfilled spirit of wanderlust, The Golden Age of Travel evokes an era when travelling the world was a thrilling new possibility for those with the resources, time, imagination, and daring. In this richly illustrated book, bedecked with ephemera and archive images, we set out on six global tours favored by Western adventurers in the pre-war era, including such famous traveller-writers as Charles Dickens, Jules Verne, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mark Twain, and Goethe. From the Grand Tour of Europe - a traditional rite-of-passage for young English aristocrats, to the Far East, barely touched by Western influence, we follow each journey through its itinerant stops and various modes of transport: trains, boats, cars, planes, horses, donkeys, and camels. With pages brimming with archival travel posters, guides, tickets, leaflets, brochures, menus, and luggage stickers, rediscover the elegance, not to mention the sheer sense of novelty, that would have enthralled these golden age passengers. Through decadent new cities, or wild, rugged terrains, this is your passport to a long-lost epoch of adventure and wide-eyed wonder at the world.

Affordable airfares have opened up the world like never before, meaning in many ways the Golden Age of travel is now. It just requires a conscious and firm decision to switch off your gadgets to
