  • Lonely Planet: Roads Less Travelled

DESCRIPTION

In its first series, the new Lonely Planet show explores thirteen countries in the company of charismatic Lonely Planet authors who are determined to blaze a new trail, experience new things and encounter new people by venturing forth on roads less travelled. In each country, the Lonely Planet author explores half a dozen destinations that are either under-appreciated, yet to register, or only just appearing on travellers radars. Each destination harbours something extraordinary or reveals something unique about the character of the country; none requires anything more tricksy to get to than basic information and a bit of imagination.
