What do you get when you combine an independent-minded, sixty-year-old mother with her adventurous seventeen-year-old son who hit the road together for his junior year? Consider the offbeat year when Mary Lois Sennewald and Ryan Costello left home to pursue learning in the wider world. Throwing conformity to the winds, the pair set out in August 2002 in a 1987 Volkswagen campervan, wandering up the Mississippi, across Canada to Newfoundland, down through New England, farther down into southern Mexico, concluding in Colorado high country. In this provocative memoir of foibles and family, astonishment, missteps, and magical moments, they share what they learned. In so doing, they challenge preconceptions about education, freedom and the necessities for a good life. By turns funny, poignant, and heart-warming, Roadschooling Ryan: Learn as We Go is about a young man on the brink of adulthood peering into the world, and a mother insisting on doing his schooling her way. It is also about survival, relative sanity, and compassion in very close quarters. Most of all, it is about laughing at fear, seeking wisdom and knowledge wherever one lands, and having a great time no matter where the road leads.
Join a fellow traveler on a walkabout through Paris and London, and then travel with him across England, Scotland and Wales. After those walkabouts, accompany him as he journeys across America and follows the equator to Australia. Finally, wander with him along the corridors of modern and postmodern philosophy, and as he travels with old and new Philosophes, who all voiced an opinion as regards this travel book.It is a book that people won't buy, won't read and won't praise. Mark TwainAfter reading only a few pages, I gave up the study of philosophy forever. VoltaireI cannot look upon the book without shedding tears. Bertrand RussellIf I could only make a travel book like that, I would be perfectly willing to die-even anxious. John DeweyI have seen a great many travel books in my time, but none that this one reminds me of. Will DurantThis travel book is one-third fabrication, one-third prevarication and one-third barefaced lies. However, the rest of the book is the unadulterated truth. Dr. Morris A. Nussbaum

"e;Always Another Horizon is well written and a delightful way to spend a winter's evening or a rainy day."e; -Santana MagazineFull of rich detail and intriguing insight, Always Another Horizon: A Journey Around the World tells the story of one couple's voyage around the globe.For nearly eight years, author Tina Olton and her husband, Steve Salmon, sailed around the world on their forty-foot, ocean-going sailboat, Another Horizon. In that time, they traveled 45,000 miles, visited sixty-one countries, and crossed three oceans as well as countless seas, canals, lakes, and rivers.From Berkeley, California, the couple cast off their dock lines to head west through the Golden Gate. The whole world was before them-the ultimate traveler's dream. From the rich beauty of French Polynesia on Easter Sunday to the whitewashed beaches of Greece, Olton and Salmon embraced the world and its diversity.But the voyage also forced the couple to examine the limits of their determination, their ability to endure hardship, their tolerance for other people-regardless of behavior or beliefs-and their good will toward each other. Olton and Salmon soon realized that the journey would have a profound impact on their lives-or bring them to their knees.For maps and photos, see www.AlwaysAnotherHorizon.com.

I needed a break. I needed "e; an off-the-wall dalliance An all-boys' adventure in a faraway land. An adventure far away from telephones and faxes and lawyers. An adventure with an abundance of humor, serious physical exertion, and danger nominally short of life-threatening."e; After a little research and a few phone calls, I decided that a climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, with four friends, via the "e;Tourist Route"e;, would fit the bill.In this book, the author tell the story of the climb-four days up, and two days down-with a humorous yet sensitive slant, describing the perils of altitude, the vicissitudes of Mother Nature, the enjoyment of multi-generational and multi-ethnic collaboration, the travails of disappointment, and the exhilaration of success. And where it suits his fancy-and does no harm to accuracy-he embellishes an observation or encounter to illuminate the pure joy of the experience. After all, it was about good fun, and the telling of it should be too.

Yet nothing can compare to the excitement he experiences upon finding lost aircraft. Unfortunately, chasing a childhood dream just might cost him his life.
On this long, unique, extraordinary journey, we join an American middle-aged teacher as she wanders the world. Emigrating to Israel in 1983, she takes us to a boarding school where she cares for newly arrived Ethiopian teenage immigrants. We follow her next to a small Israeli Arab town.In 1988, she takes us back to China as it can never be seen again, and through her students' lives, watches its tumultuous changes from then until 2005. Taiwan, Macau, Bali, and Korea also become "e;home,"e; while New Zealand, Fiji, Turkey, Vietnam, Russia, and Iceland, among others, beckon briefly, but she always returns to China. Through the enthralling details of the everyday life of ordinary people, the reader virtually lives their struggles, fears, achievements, joys and dreams.Curiosity, intensity, and the journals she keeps along the way are her constant traveling companions. This independent budget traveler keenly experiences cultures, like a hummingbird with feet planted firmly in mid-air, hovering, drinking deeply, and then flitting away to return another day. Interwoven throughout are her personal, emotional, and spiritual journeys. This is a true life odyssey any seasoned or armchair traveler will want to explore.
Traveling cross continent, the author explores several prominent, and many virtually "e;secret"e; sites of American antiquity. All relate to civilizations and cultures which preceded the arrival of the European-some, by many 1000s of years. While the focus is on the Great Valley of the Mississippi and the stupendous and mysterious Moundbuilders, the working context is modern America. And it is knowledgeable Americans whom the author encounters along the Trail who provide support and guidance.In the latter part of the book, attention shifts to the startling land formations of the South-west-the Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, the High Plains-which tell us much about the intensity of activity on the American continent many millions of years before man, "e;a very new newcomer,"e; was to make his first appearance. Phantom Trail creates an alternative portrait of America. It explores deeper themes and reveals identifiable lines of continuity leading up from antiquity to the present day. It suggests that America is not a modern European invention. Indeed to the contrary, it contends that it is those relentless formative forces, the beat of those deep, primeval rhythms which-unrecognized or ignored, as they may currently be-give to America its essential meaning, its presence, and its form.
Seeking adventure, a couple, Ernst and Emilie, embark on a trek across the Himalayas, from Nepal into western Tibet. After a clandestine mountain crossing at the source of the Brahmaputra River, the two lost explorers find themselves destitute with no map and meager supplies. Suddenly, they are captured by a bedraggled patrol of outcasts from the Chinese Army. Their trip turns into a wild odyssey as they become "e;prisoners"e; of this ragtag group of wacky characters.Dripping wet and shivering, we found refuge in a shack adjoining the collection of drowning huts from which we had escaped. It turned out to be the Tibetan version of an inn, a dank room with a dirt floor, one shaky iron table and two crude benches. Rain drummed on the corrugated tin ceiling and pissed through holes which made us, as soon as we sat down, keep shifting our bench to evade the worst waterfalls and the largest puddles.The tottering keeper, a clearly inebriated old man pointed in our Tibetan phrase book at "e;no food"e; and at "e;no drink"e;."e;Nga amerika nay yin"e;, Emilie said. The Tibetan phrase book promised it meant: "e;We are Americans."e;To judge from his reaction, it might as well have meant: "e;We found your son to be the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama."e;
The "e;Neverland Valley-Welcome"e; sign depicts a little boy, bending over to talk to a troll. Peter Pan was playing at the packed eighty-seat, 7,000 square-foot theatre. Popcorn and drinks were dished up gratis to the mobs at the concession stand. On-screen, Captain Hook had ten wide-eyed children in white nightshirts bound and gagged, about to be fed to the crocodile. Nearby, amid the rides, a band was taking a break. Beat It thumped loudly from hidden speakers. A circus-like tent houses the bumper cars, where jubilant lads, faces flushed with excitement, rammed each other with enthusiasm. I freely admitted, there was no doubt that allegations of child molestation had hurt Jackson in this community. Where wouldn't such charges resonate? Sodom and Gomorrah?***What did Michael Jackson's neighbors really think of him, or the other famous residents of the rural California wine country made famous by Sideways? Just two hours from Los Angeles, the honorable Old West lives on, with cowboys and Indians, a Danish village, stars, surfers, and more.***"e;Though this is not truly a guidebook, Etling tips readers to wildflower fields, surfing spots, cave paintings and museums. Readers will forget Sideways and head south to eat with cowboys and celebrities at the Longhorn Cafe, watch a missile launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base and ski on Figueroa Mountain."e; San Francisco Chronicle

For Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, the years 2000-2002 were characterized by a painful and rocky transition to democracy, as well as by the difficult aftermath of 9/11. For Marta Hoilman, living in Jakarta during this time not only meant dealing with the ramifications of such historic events, but also meant grappling with the often maddening, frequently funny, and sometimes terrifying challenges of expatriate life in a developing country. Just how do you maintain a low profile while being several heads taller and several shades blonder than the local population? What type of shoe is best to kill an Asian cockroach the size of a D battery? And what forces are behind the Great Fresca Drought? The tales in Adventures in Indonesia chronicle with humor and generosity of spirit the follies, foibles and joys of expatriate life in Indonesia from presidential impeachment, to earthquakes and floods, through evacuation and familial separation.

Holley never got used to death, to seeing men he knew go home in body bags. Serving under Col. David H.Hackworth, Holley saw the outfit begin to act more like an elite bunch of Rangers than the rag-tag, half-drunk group it had been.

Now, twenty six years later, Doc Holley returns to the land of so much pain and suffering, his trip a mission to visit the exact location where one of his special friends died in one of the fiercest battles fought in the Mekong Delta.

On their second trip to Australia, Ruth and Harold met a couple during a Great Barrier Reef cruise. They and their children eventually became great friends. Lynette and Rob had lived in Washington, DC and had traveled all over the world, but they had never been to the Outback. So when the opportunity to explore it under the sponsorship of the highly respected National Trust appeared, they seized the chance and invited the Harbaughs along. The almost three week journey involved one widely traveled American couple, 14 reserved Aussies, and a driver named Dave. Together they explored deserted telegraph stations, hidden water holes, and compelling Outback attractions rarely seen by outsiders. The well educated Australians aboard were expecting a university scholar to conduct this 8,000 mile circle that included 5 of the 7 Australian States and 1 Territory, but they ended up with Dave, a mate whose favorites subjects were beer, fishing, and lame, politically incorrect jokes.

Travel and Tourism are wide and multifaceted systems whose complexity is reflected in the terminology employed to describe them or to operate them. Their communication language appears at times secretive; but there is no secrecy, in fact. Travel activities are bound to a vehicle distinguished by its velocity. Operating such activities demands, therefore, a communication system able to match such rapidity. It is required that all performers are fluent in travel terminology, including students, airlines staff, travel agents, and other service providers. The Dictionary for Travel and Tourism Activities has been designed to solve the need to learn, understand and succeed with the most common terms and expressions used by these so-called Industries. It is an educational tool for students and professionals, but is also an understanding means for travelers.
