    Think of travel writing and we tend to think of accounts by Europeans of their adventures in far-off, 'exotic' lands. This absorbing collection offers an alternative perspective, from the 9th century pilgrimage of a Japanese monk in China to 'A Love-Hate Affair with the British' by a witty Indian journalist of the 1890s. Vivid, detailed, erudite and often humorous, they show that the trials and tribulations, excitement and wonder of travel are an experience shared by all humanity.
