Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

For over a decade, renowned travel journalist, bestselling author, and TV host Robin Esrock scoured the globe in search of one-of-a-kind, bucket list–worthy experiences. During his remarkable journey to over 100 countries on seven continents, Esrock uncovered unique adventures, fascinating history, cultural spectacles, natural wonders, hilarious situations and unforgettable characters-proving that modern travel is so much more than just over-trafficked tourist attractions. From the Amazon jungle to the beaches of Zanzibar, The Great Global Bucket List presents a world we don't hear much about in the news. A world that is strikingly beautiful, thought-provoking, incredibly diverse and sometimes, just very, very funny. With his trademark wit, photography and insight, Esrock introduces the inspiring experiences you'll be talking and dreaming about for many years to come.

Get ready to

  • cage dive with crocodiles in South Africa;
  • float in Colombia's Mud Volcano of youth;
  • cheer for a masked wrestling hero in Mexico;
  • discover the reality of space tourism in Russia's Star City;
  • zip line off the Great Wall of China;
  • swim with sunken treasures in Papua, New Guinea; and
  • camp on the ice in Antarctica

… and that's just the tip of the proverbial metaphor!

Whether you're looking for ideas for your next trip, or simply entertainment from your armchair, Esrock is more than just your experienced travel guide. Each chapter unlocks an online companion site with practical information, videos, photo galleries, polls, forums, reading suggestions, a bonus blog and more.

Some items on Esrock's bucket list are certainly not for everybody, but this beautifully illustrated, easy-to-navigate book offers something for everyone. The world has never seemed so fun, inviting and inspirational. For a trail-blazing book rooted in things to do before you die, The Great Global Bucket List is packed with experiences that make life worth living.
