When you don’t stick to the path, when you take yourself on a completely unplanned adventure; the world opens up to you. This is what the Atlas Obscura book is all about. It isn’t about the major attractions of the world that everyone flocks to with their cameras and selfie sticks. These are places that some may not dare to venture, some may think too peculiar but some seek the oddities of the world. If you are the latter then this is your guidebook. It is the alternative tome that takes you around the world whilst you sit in front of the fire with a hot cup of tea. It teases and dares you to walk off the beaten track and find the most wondrous places around the globe. It invites you to open your eyes to some of the world’s most bizarre rituals, landscapes and people (both breathing and dead I have to add).
Get those walking boots on and grab your passport; this is your companion to the weird and wonderful world we live in.
