Once While Travelling – the Lonely Planet story

Sunday, 7 September 2008

Once While TravellingIt’s taken a while to arrive in the UK market, but it will be in UK bookshops this week. The publisher is Crimson and it retails for £9.99. Once While Travelling is a combination of autobiography, travel story and business book.

It kicks off with how Maureen and I met, follows our journeys over the year and looks at the growth and changes Lonely Planet has gone through. How did we manage to live together, travel together, grow a business together and even include two children in the picture? It’s all here. The last chapter covers Lonely Planet’s new incarnation with BBC-Worldwide.

Once While Travelling - ChineseThe assorted editions of The Lonely Planet story even includes a Chinese edition!

Unfortunately the launch event at Stanfords Bookshop in London has had to be cancelled. Hopefully we’ll be able to reschedule it for a later date in September.
