5.0 out of 5 stars Armchair travel, using native bearers, 27 Mar. 2008
By 
Maclennane (Horsham, Sussex) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: The Lost Art of Travel: A Handbook for the Modern Adventurer (Hardcover)
For anyone who has read The Chap the tone will be familiar. Mr Darkwood takes passages from obscure, archaic travel tomes and stitches them together in his own anarchic, amiable idiom.

Discover the way to amuse yourself with large predators, or how to cross the rockies in a chair, using a single servant. Perhaps you wish to avoid bed bugs in Germany or learn to drink with Dutchmen. It is all here. A thousand times more informative than those awful "hip places" travel guides with which you are probably more familiar, but beware: the establishments and locations mentioned may well have changed somewhat in the intervening 150 years.
