by Dominik Bonatz

This book, consisting of 12 contributions, unites the most recent results from archaeological research in the Upper Mesopotamian piedmont.

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT

by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they're invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day's stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the n...

Only In America: On the Road to Our National Parks

by Philip Wik

Jack Kerouac published On the Road in 1957. Kerouac’s book was a hymn to the Beat Generation with its jazz and drugs. Only in America’s goal isn’t to capture the voices of the counterculture. It’s to explore the national parks of the continental United States. I’ve left many states out of this fictional narrative. But those states too have beauty. Their starkness makes us appreciate even more the treasures of our parks. Of all the parks, I must admit my fondness to the parks of Utah, especially Zion and Bryce. At the top of my list, also, are Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Glacier National Park, and the Blue Ridge.Only in America is my tip of the hat to the one hundredth anniversary of our national parks. “Nothing behind me,” Kerouac says in On the Road. “Everything ah...

A Land Ruled by Silence: Tales of Transitions in the Warm Heart of Africa

by Eliza McCullen

The gate to the airplane led us gently down a ramp. On the wall in front of us was a sign indicating our destination: Lilongwe, Malawi. I felt my chest start to tighten and forced myself to breathe deeply. This was it. What we had waited for for five years, ever since we got married. Well, at least it was what my husband waited for. And I had gone along.That meant giving up a job I loved, one in which I was building a career, moving out of our first starter home, a tiny box of a house in Alexandria that was now rented to three men and a dog, and leaving behind all that was familiar to me. A professional working wife and mother used to the hustle and bustle of Washington, I suddenly found myself in one of the poorest and quietest countries in Africa.I was able to land a position at USAID as...

Taking Off

by Ty F. Clemens

A few years after graduating college, Ty was fed up with "working" and "acting responsibly like every other adult is expected to," and chose instead to quit his job and backpack across Europe and Asia. Taking Off is the mostly true memoir of his trip.Yes, this may come as a shock, but a twenty-something wrote about his experiences travelling. Kind of like when Ashley from HR sent you the link to her vacation blog. The differences being that this book is longer, has less pictures of Ashley in a bikini, and gives you no real obligation to read it since you'll never bump into Ty in the break room where he'll ask you how you liked it. But regardless of obligation, you can still appreciate this book, as it consists of several humorous, interesting, and worthwhile anecdotes that are way more int...

The Big Fish does. (The Big Fish Tails Book 1)

by Mike Williams

New bonus Chapter now included.
Remarried in 2004 Down-Under, this tale tracks the adventures of The Big Fish and his good lady on their travels to some exciting destinations and some not so exciting ones.
Not backpacking in places where they still point at aircraft. Not just a tale of one particular visit, but a colourful insight into what some may describe as a once in a lifetime adventure, along with some other places that will remain just once in a lifetime for other reasons.
Caught up overseas during that bloody volcano in Iceland, sailing serenely down the Nile, crossing the Atlantic Ocean in boats, the All-Inclusive experience, the good old US of A and City-Breaks; they all take a hit with some barbed comments as The Big Fish has a different take on the usual gran...

To Travel Hopelessly: Five Years of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (The Burnout Trilogy Book 1)

by English Teacher X

In 1995, after a year of aimless wandering, a broke, parasite-infested backpacker answered an ad in a newspaper in Bangkok and inadvertently became English Teacher X, working, in the next five years, in seven different cities in five different countries.

From the neon-and-vomit-laden streets of Seoul to historic beer-soaked Prague, from a tropical island paradise in Thailand to an industrial hellhole of Post-Soviet Russia, English Teacher X describes, in raw and violent imagery, the life of an English teacher overseas, encountering dishonest and exploitative employers, degenerate colleagues, corrupt police, gold-hearted prostitutes and cold-hearted "English groupies", with drugs and alcohol for all, while questing in vain for the Authentic Cultural Experience.
