Forget package holidays and classic travel routes. Wave adieu to predictable journeys and escape the clutches of tourist traps. The time has come for different travel rules and "The Lonely Planet Guide to Experimental Travel" is your passport to a new world.
Do you yearn for the glories of yesteryear? Pack an octogenarian guidebook and replace the subway with a penny farthing for an "Anachronistic Adventure." Do you like to gamble? Taste the real thrill of adventure with "Trip Poker" or "Monopoly Travel." Are you desperate for a holiday but strapped for cash? To undertake "Budget Tourism" low funds are not an obstacle but a prerequisite.
With over 40 experiments to try, an enthralling history of Experimental Travel, interviews with our expert authors - including the founder of Latourex, an organization dedicated to Experimental Travel - and reports by intrepid experimenters, you'll be perfectly equipped for the open road. It's just up to you to fly the flag, pick up the mantle and fire up your experimental engine. Good luck
