Review

If you have the slightest curiosity about the world beyond your living room, then this is a collection to die for. What could be a better way to raise funds for Oxfam than to collect these nuggets of worldly wisdom from a galaxy of the very best travel writers. It's impossible to read their contributions without wanting to go and get the rucksack out. (Michael Palin)

Captivating... a collection that is filled with memorable brilliance. (Peter Feely Real Travel 2011-04-01)

Inspiring (John Lewis Edition 2011-05-31)

A colourful suitcase of stories... will whip up your wanderlust. (Sainsbury's Magazine 2011-06-01)

A rare congregation of talent (Lonely Planet 2011-06-01)

This is a collection of sharp tales which take you straight to the point of a place...reading OxTravels is like landing somewhere you haven't been for a while and remembering how much you love the place... a reminder of how much I love travelling safely on the back of someone else's intimate words.... riveting... they leave you moved, long after you've stopped travelling (Sarah Barrell Independent on Sunday 2011-05-22)

Engaging (Sunday Times 2011-05-22)

This book proves that the form (travel writing) can still glow with life. Here is the heart of it, the ability of great travel writers to find magic in the most trying of trips... This book is a small empire of joy... a diamond...
By focusing on encounters, Ox Travels has reinvigorated the form... a serious collection.

(Ruaridh Nicoll Observer 2011-06-05)

These piece capture a character, culture or country with the rough flourish of a charcoal sketch... you can happily feel you're getting something worthwhile in return for your coins. OxTravels is easily digestible, not quickly forgotten. (Tom Hawker Wanderlust 2011-06-30)

An ideal holiday companion (Tom Robbins FT 2011-07-02)
