A single photo from everywhere we've been since January 2011. On Thursday, when we arrive in Shanghai, this lengthy dogleg of a journey will come to an end. A week later, we set off for Cape Town overland.

+Old World Wandering: A Travelogue's Kickstarter campaign, which launched today. It’s an ambitious, exciting project, but it’s terrifying too because if we don’t hit our target, we get nothing. You can support us by choosing a reward: a handwritten thank you postcard from the Silk Road, for instance, or a set of professionally printed photographs, a limited edition hardback book, or a long weekend in Istanbul. You can pledge
as little as $1 or as much as $2,000, or you can help us by spreading the word. Either way, thank you!

A list of #travel #books in the public domain.
 
We've added Robert Burton's A Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Al-Medinah and Meccah to our list of public domain travelogues. To reach Mecca, Burton had himself circumcised and travelled in disguise, passing himself off as “a wandering Dervish.” It was a substantial risk: if Burton had been discovered, he would have been killed immediately.
