BOOKS & MAPS- hot off the press!


Scratch your way around the world with Luckies of London's Scratch Map, now available at Wanderlust in Original and Travel size.   
With the best intentions, us jet setters often think we’ll keep a log or a diary when we are away but in reality you’re generally too busy soaking it all in to take pen to paper. This unique and entirely personalized map is the perfect way to keep a tally of where you’ve been, how you got there and what you liked about the place with minimal effort!


An eclectic collection of 11 global walks and hikes, the book includes destinations on every continent but Antarctica. From one-day saunters to two-week odysseys, readers will find the in-depth story behind each trail, combined with detailed maps and a visual feast of archival and contemporary images from contributors located around the world.

Climb the Stairs of Repentance to the top of Mount Sinai, the Holy Peak of Moses, or retrace the journey of the stampeders of the Klondike Gold Rush as you scale the Golden Stairs of the Chilkoot Trail. Catch the "Long Look" across El Despoblado as you stand at the South Rim of the Chisos Mountains in Texas. Walk in the Dreaming tracks of the local Arrente as you trek the Larapinta Trail along the spine of Central Australia''s ancient MacDonnell Ranges. Or follow delightful paths through sheep paddocks and woodlands filled with bluebells and birdsong along Great Britain''s Cotswold Way.


Discover the World's Best Places for Women!Seeking the tranquility of a Buddhist meditation center? The raucousness of a rumba club? 100 Places Every Woman Should Go will not only inspire but compel you to hit the road—in a group, with a friend, or solo. Divided into sections such as “Powerful Women and Their Places in History,” “Places of Indulgence,” and “Places of Adventure,” this guidebook includes contact information, resources, and recommended reading. Its “Ten Tips For Wandering Women” features safety advice and pointers on how to stop departing airplanes and avoid getting tossed off Trans-Siberian trains.

“An amazing feat…Griest manages to impart the essence of some of the world’s most remarkable places. Reading the book is like catching the colors of a tropical sunset, a whiff of an almost tree in bloom, a hint of a melody from a late night jazz bar.”

Elizabeth Lesser, co-founder of Omega Institute and author of Broken Open


Where is the best place to visit right now? As self-confessed travel geeks, our staff rack up hundreds of thousands of miles each year, exploring most of the planet in the process. And each year we ask everyone at Lonely Planet for their latest recommendations – from our authors and editors to our online family of bloggers and tweeters.

They come up with hundreds of places that are exciting right now, offer new things for travelers to do, or are riminally overlooked and underrated. Their list is whittled down by our panel of travel experts to just 10 countries, 10 regions and 10 cities. Each is chosen for its topicality, unique experiences and ‘wow’ factor. We don’t just report on the trends, we set them – helping you get there before the crowds do.

Put simply, what remains in the pages that follow is the cream of this year’s travel picks, courtesy of Lonely Planet: 10 countries, 10 regions, 10 cities and a host of travel lists to inspire you to explore for yourself. So what are you waiting for?
