  • Van Het Pad Af: Naar Zuidoost-Azië in een oude Land Cruiser

    Karin-Marijke Vis & Coen Wubbels

    Reizen en avontuur 'Ik ga een wereldreis van twee jaar maken. Ga je mee?' 'Ja,' antwoordt Karin-Marijke, niet wetend waar ze zo volmondig 'ja' tegen zegt. In 'Van het pad af' nemen Karin-Marijke en Coen je mee op hun reis naar Zuidoost-Azië in een verroeste Land Cruiser. Een rit van 75.000 kilometer door 15 landen in 3,5 jaar. Van ongekende gastvrijheid in Turkije en Iran naar unieke belevenissen in het weinig bereisde Pakistan, Bhutan en Tibet. Van knallende ruzies over elkaars rijstijl naar eensgezind genieten van de prachtige mensen die hun pad kruisten en bij wie ze te gast waren. Ze reisden een jaar door India en ontkwamen aan een bomexplosie in Bangladesh, maar niet aan malaria. In Cambodja zwierven ze door oerwouden bezaaid met landmijnen en in Laos verdwaalden ze op de voormalige Ho Chi Minh-route. Voor wie zich afvraagt of het echt kan – alles achterlaten, de wijde wereld intrekken en vertrouwen hebben in wat er op je pad komt – dit verhaal is voor jou.

  • Japan

    Cees Nooteboom

    Reizen in Azië Wat ooit begon met Saigoku , een boek over pelgrimstochten in Japan, werd voor Cees Nooteboom gaandeweg een diepe fascinatie die hem steeds opnieuw zou doen terugkeren naar het keizerrijk. Als onvermoeibare reiziger kijkt hij altijd achter de volgende heuvel, uit nieuwsgierigheid naar een Japan dat hij nog niet kent en begrijpt. Hij voelt een sensueel genot in de mensenmenigtes van Tokio, valt in de snelste trein ter wereld tussen de zingende monniken langzaam in slaap, probeert de verschillende tempels uit elkaar te houden en ziet in dat hij daar nog een volgend leven voor nodig zal hebben. In Japan komen deze reisverhalen voor het eerst samen. Met zijn vermogen om de fijnere nuances van het land te begrijpen, richt Cees Nooteboom een persoonlijk monument op voor de kunst, landschappen en inwoners.

  • China & de barbaren

    Henk Schulte Nordholt

    Reizen in Azië Eeuwenlang was China de onbetwiste grootmacht van Oost-Azië. Andere volkeren werden gezien als barbaars. In de Eeuw van Vernedering (1839-1949) ging het land door een diep dal: het Westen en Japan degradeerden de oude natie tot een vazalstaat. Inmiddels heeft het land zijn positie als economische mogendheid herwonnen, maar hoe gaan de communistische leiders hiermee om? China en de barbaren schetst de invloed van de geschiedenis op China’s zoektocht naar een nieuwe identiteit. Deze geactualiseerde editie van China en de barbaren duidt de laatste geopolitieke ontwikkelingen, waaronder de strijd tussen Donald Trump en Xi Jinping om de dominantie in Oost-Azië.
  • 3x Everest

    Harry Kikstra

    Reizen in Azië Waarom wil iemand de top van de hoogste berg ter wereld bereiken en niet één maar drie keer? In 2004 beklimt Harry Kikstra voor het eerst de Mount Everest. Hij begint doodziek aan de tocht en het team waarvan hij deel uitmaakt, valt ten prooi aan onderlinge ruzies. Een jaar later probeert hij het opnieuw. De expeditie verloopt dramatisch: een teamgenoot overlijdt, hijzelf bereikt, meer dood dan levend, als tiende Nederlander ooit de top. Maar dan moet de gevaarlijke afdaling nog komen. In 2006 wordt Kikstra benaderd door een klimmer met een oogziekte. De expeditie eindigt rampzalig en is wereldnieuws: twee doden en één klimmer die ternauwernood gered kan worden. 3x Everest is behalve het spannende verslag van drie tochten naar de top van de hoogste berg ook een verhaal over de aantrekkingskracht van het klimmen, over de grote gevaren voor het menselijk lichaam, over angst, de aan gekte grenzende fascinatie voor het hoogste punt op aarde en de kritieken vanaf de zijlijn.'

  • The Great Railway Bazaar

    Paul Theroux

    Reizen in Azië The Great Railway Bazaar is Paul Theroux's classic and much-loved homage to train travel. The Orient Express; The Khyber Pass Local; the Delhi Mail from Jaipur; the Golden Arrow of Kuala; the Trans-Siberian Express; these are just some of the trains steaming through Paul Theroux's epic rail journey from London across Europe through India and Asia. This was a trip of discovery made in the mid-seventies, a time before the West had embraced the places, peoples, food, faiths and cultures of the East. For us now, as much as for Theroux then, to visit the lands of The Great Railway Bazaar is an encounter with all that is truly foreign and exotic - and with what we have since lost. Praise for Paul Theroux: 'Theroux's work remains the standard by which other travel writing must be judged' Observer 'One needs energy to keep up with the extraordinary, productive restlessness of Paul Theroux ... [He is] the most gifted, most prodigal writer of his generation'Jonathan Raban 'Always a terrific tel
  • Himalaya

    Michael Palin

    Reizen in Azië Michael Palins epische reizen hebben hem in alle uithoeken van de wereld gebracht. Hij reisde van de noord- naar de zuidpool, doorkruiste alle landen rond de Grote Oceaan en stak de Sahara-woestijn over. Zijn zesde reis, door het uitgestrekte en meedogenloze Himalaya-gebergte, is ook nu weer vol avontuur, mysterie en uitdaging. Er is sowieso geen gemakkelijk manier om dit te doen en Michael Palin maakt het zichzelf niet eenvoudig. De Himalaya, Sanskriet voor huis van sneeuw, is een buitengewoon interessant gebied en een van de jongste gebergtes ter wereld: slechts vijftig miljoen jaar oud. Het gebied is een religieuze, historische en geografische schatkist en diende zowel als natuurlijke grens als smeltkroes van volkeren, religies en rassen.

    Reizen in Azië De prijs van dit boek is verlaagd van €27,- naar €14,95 omdat het boek niet meer wordt geüpdate. Veel van de informatie klopt wel nog steeds maar sommige linkjes werken mogelijk niet meer. Ik, Christine Schrijnemakers auteur van dit boek, ben mijn hele leven al gefascineerd door reizen. Op jonge leeftijd reisde ik al door Europa en bezocht de grote metropolen van ons werelddeel. Nadat ik het rond 2000 wat rustiger aan ging doen, heb ik samen met mijn man, elk jaar meerdere tweemaandelijkse ontdekkingsreizen gemaakt door heel Thailand, van Chiang Rai tot in Krabi en van Nong Khai tot op Koh Chang. Naarmate ik Thailand steeds beter leerde kennen en veel andere reizigers onderweg sprak, ontdekte ik hoe weinig vakantiegangers eigenlijk echte en vooral praktische feiten wisten over dit land, de Thais en hun gewoontes, en hoeveel slechte en soms zelfs onjuiste informatie en faliekante onzin door de touroperators en reisbureaus over deze argeloze vakantiegangers werd uitgestort..

  • The Stormrider Surf Guide: India, Sri Lanka and the Bay of Bengal

    Bruce Sutherland & Antony Colas

    Reizen in Azië A whole sub-continent of waves have largely been ignored by the traveling surf tribes for the best part of half a century and aside from Sri Lanka, very few countries in the Bay of Bengal would be considered true surf destinations. This is not to say there is no surf - quite the opposite in fact - but India, Myanmar and Thailand are on a completely different travel agenda, so few bother to lug a board round for what most perceive as 2ft monsoonal wind slop. The reality is there are days of real quality to be had on all these coasts during their on season, with surprising wave height, power and shape.  The Stormrider Surf Guides are the worlds best selling and most respected collection of surfing guide books delivered in paper, ebook and app formats.

    Peter Hessler

    Reizen in Azië An intimate and revelatory account of two generations of students in China’s heartland, by an author who has observed the country’s tumultuous changes over the past quarter century More than two decades after teaching English during the early part of China’s economic boom, an experience chronicled in his book River Town , Peter Hessler returned to Sichuan Province to instruct students from the next generation. At the same time, Hessler and his wife enrolled their twin daughters in a local state-run elementary school, where they were the only Westerners. Over the years, Hessler had kept in close contact with many of the people he had taught in the 1990s. By reconnecting with these individuals—members of China’s “Reform generation,” now in their forties—while teaching current undergrads, Hessler gained a unique perspective on China’s incredible transformation. In 1996, when Hessler arrived in China, almost all of the people in his classroom were first-generation colleg

  • Seven Years in Tibet

    Heinrich Harrer & Richard Graves

    Reizen in Azië A landmark in travel writing, this is the incredible true story of Heinrich Harrer’s escape across the Himalayas to Tibet, set against the backdrop of the Second World War. Heinrich Harrer, already one of the greatest mountaineers of his time, was climbing in the Himalayas when war broke out in Europe. He was imprisoned by the British in India but succeeded in escaping and fled to Tibet. Settling in Lhasa, the Forbidden City, where he became a friend and tutor to the Dalai Lama, Heinrich Harrer spent seven years gaining a more profound understanding of Tibet and the Tibetans than any Westerner before him. More recently made into a film starring Brad Pitt, Seven Years in Tibet is a stunning story of incredible courage and self-reliance by one of the twentieth century’s best travel writers.

  • Achter de eeuwige glimlach

    Elisabeth Riphagen

    Reizen in Azië 'De laatste tien jaar heb ik in Indonesië de ontmoeting gezocht met mensen die ik zomaar tegen kwam. Ik wilde weten wat hen bezig hield, hoe hun leven eruit zag, wat hen gelukkig maakte en wat religie voor hen betekende. De gesprekken hebben honderd verhalen "uit het leven gegrepen" opgeleverd. Over trouw en liefde, over de strijd om het dagelijkse bestaan en om de corruptie waar iedereen mee te maken heeft. Zij laten de binnenkant zien van de Indonesische cultuur, godsdienst en samenleving.' Elisabeth Rphagen (Bodegraven 1947) is theologe, auteur en verhalenverteller. Samen met haar man woonde en werkte ze in de jaren zeventig in Indonesië. Sinds 1990 gaat ze elk jaar enkele maanden terug om daar onderwijsinstellingen en sociale projecten in vaak afgelegen en arme gebieden te ondersteunen.

  • An Area of Darkness

    V. S. Naipaul

    Reizen in Azië The Nobel Prize-winning author’s profound reckoning with his ancestral homeland and an extraordinarily perceptive chronicle of his first encounter with India. “Whatever his literary form, Naipaul is a master.” — The New York Review of Books Traveling from the bureaucratic morass of Bombay to the ethereal beauty of Kashmir, from a sacred ice cave in the Himalayas to an abandoned temple near Madras, Naipaul encounters a dizzying cross-section of humanity: browbeaten government workers and imperious servants, a suavely self-serving holy man and a deluded American religious seeker. An Area of Darkness also abounds with Naipaul’s strikingly original responses to India’s paralyzing caste system, its apparently serene acceptance of poverty and squalor, and the conflict between its desire for self-determination and its nostalgia for the British raj. The result may be the most elegant and passionate book ever written about the subcontinent.

  • Waar Allah en Boeddha buren zijn

    Judith Zielstra

    Reizen in Azië In Waar Boeddha en Allah buren zijn vertelt Judith Zielstra over haar fietstocht door een van de meest ruige en ontoegankelijke streken ter wereld: de Indiase Himalaya. In Ladakh legt zij samen met haar man het traject van Manali naar Leh af, dat een gemiddelde hoogte van meer dan 4000 meter heeft en vier passen van 5000 meter telt. De beruchte Manali - Leh Highway blijkt in de praktijk vooral 'high' en weinig 'way' te zijn. Het tweede deel van de route gaat over de Leh - Srinagar Highway, die deels door oorlogsgebied voert en tot op de dag van vandaag ernstig wordt getekend door het Kashmir conflict.  Met gevoel voor humor, maar ook met oog voor verhoudingen en de bredere context laat Judith zien hoe het is om in dit fascinerende gebied te fietsen. Het is door hoogte, hitte en treurig wegdek af en toe flink bikkelen, maar de combinatie van bizarre natuur, cultuur-historische rijkdom en hartelijke mensen maakt alles goed.  Het boek bevat naast vele prachtige foto's ook prakt

  • River Town

    Peter Hessler

    Reizen en avontuur When Peter Hessler went to China in the late 1990s, he expected to spend a couple of peaceful years teaching English in the town of Fuling on the Yangtze River. But what he experienced - the natural beauty, cultural tension, and complex process of understanding that takes place when one is thrust into a radically different society - surpassed anything he could have imagined. Hessler observes firsthand how major events such as the death of Deng Xiaoping, the return of Hong Kong to the mainland, and the controversial consturction of the Three Gorges Dam have affected even the people of a remote town like Fuling. Poignant, thoughtful and utterly compelling, River Town is an unforgettable portrait of a place caught mid-river in time, much like China itself - a country seeking to understand both what it was and what it will one day become.

  • Angry White Pyjamas

    Robert Twigger

    Reizen en avontuur A brilliant and captivating insight into the bizarre nature of contemporary Japan. Adrift in Tokyo, teaching giggling Japanese highschool girls how to pronounce Tennyson correctly, Robert Twigger came to a revelation about himself: he'd never been fit. In a bid to escape the cockroach infestation and sweaty squalor of a cramped apartment in Fuji Heights, Twigger sets out to cleanse his body and his mind. Not knowing his fist from his elbow the author is sucked into the world of Japanese martial arts, and the brutally demanding course of budo training taken by the Tokyo Riot Police, where any ascetic motivation soon comes up against blood-stained dogis and fractured collarbones. In Angry White Pyjamas Robert Twigger skilfully blends the ancient with the modern - the ultra-traditionalism, ritual and violence of the dojo (training academy) with the shopping malls, nightclubs and scenes of everyday Tokyo life in the twenty-first century - to provide an entertaining and captivating glimpse

  • Langs de straten van Jakarta

    Ben Knapen

    Reizen in Azië Dit boek gaat over mensen. En over kleinigheden. Mensen en hun alledaagse besognes in Jakarta vormen kleine inkijkjes in een grote werkelijkheid van een elf miljoen inwoners tellende chaos genaamd Jakarta. En stuk voor stuk ook inkijkjes in een natie van bijna een kwart miljard mensen. Indonesië is moeilijk te vatten. Vanwege de rommel doet het meestal van zich spreken: vliegtuigen die te gemakkelijk uit de lucht vallen, veerboten die omslaan, gebouwen die bij de geringste schok afknappen. En prachtige natuur die verdwijnt, omdat hout wordt gestolen, veen wordt afgebrand en modder naar beneden komt. Maar ook hier willen mensen vooruit, hebben ambities en dromen die verder reiken dan voorheen. Ze maken deel uit van de vooruitgang, of hebben er zicht op. Via de televisie en de shopping mall zien ze wat er in de wereld te koop is. De grote stad herbergt die belofte van de vooruitgang. Met Langs de straten van Jakarta willen Ben Knapen en fotograaf Ahmad de Ny Salman over dit land vertel

  • A Ride In The Neon Sun

    Josie Dew

    Reizen en avontuur It's not easy landing unprepared in a country like Japan. The eccentricities of the calendar, the indecipherable postal system, not to mention the alien alphabet, language and culture, have all to be confronted before the disorientated traveller can feel at ease. Trying to ride a bicycle through the streets of one of the most congested cities in the world would seem to compound your problems. For Josie Dew, however, with over 200,000 miles already clocked up in the saddle few things could be more challenging - or for the reader of A RIDE IN THE NEON SUN, more wonderfully entertaining. From Kawasaki to Kagoshima, Odawara to Okinawa, Josie discovered a nation rich in dazzling contrasts. The neon and concrete were there in greater abundance than even she had imagined, but so too were bottomless baths, love burgers, long-tailed cocks, musical toilet rolls, oriental Elvises, cardboard police and a sense of fun belying the population's rigourous work ethic. Far from being the reserved race

Peter Jaggs has spent the best part of the past thirty years in Thailand and his previous books about the characters and locations on the seedier side of the streets of Thailand have reached best selling status in their respective categories on Amazon’s lists as well as those of other distributors and have sold thousands of copies to date.

  • The Stormrider Surf Guide Nusa Tenggara

    Bruce Sutherland & Antony Colas

    Reizen in Azië “The Southeastern Islands” of Nusa Tenggara string out across the NE border of the Indian Ocean, forming a barrier to the Banda Sea and beyond that, the mighty Pacific. Also called the Lesser Sunda Islands from Bali east, there is nothing lesser about them in surfing terms, with each major island hosting at least one world-class wave including probably the world’s best wave, Desert Point on Lombok. This area should attract surfers by the thousands, but in true Indo style, it is not so simple. While surf camps draw in visitors to a few prime spots, the rugged terrain and sparse infrastructure have left many coasts wild and undeveloped, offering the sort of vibe and exploration potential that existed on Bali 30 years ago.

With all the narrative power and intellectual authority that have distinguished his earlier books and won him international acclaim (“There can hardly be a writer alive who surpasses him” – Irving Howe, The New York Times Book Review ), Naipaul explores the life, the culture, the ferment inside the nations of Islam – in a book that combines the fascinations of the great works of travel literature with the insights of a uniquely sharp, original, and idiosyncratic political mind.   He takes us into four countries in the throes of “Islamization” – countries that, in their ardor to build new societies based entirely

  • Senza mai arrivare in cima

    Paolo Cognetti

    Reizen en avontuur Dall'autore di Le otto montagne . «Alla fine ci sono andato davvero, in Himalaya. Non per scalare le cime, come sognavo da bambino, ma per esplorare le valli. Volevo vedere se da qualche parte nel mondo esiste ancora una montagna integra, vederla coi miei occhi prima che scompaia. Sono partito dalle Alpi abbandonate e urbanizzate e sono finito nel piú remoto angolo di Nepal, un piccolo Tibet che sopravvive all'ombra di quello grande e ormai perduto. Ho camminato per 300 chilometri e superato 8 passi oltre i 5000 metri, senza raggiungere nessuna cima. Mi accompagnavano un libro di culto, un cane incontrato lungo la strada, alcuni amici: al ritorno mi sono rimasti gli amici». Che cos'è l'andare in montagna senza la conquista della cima? Un atto di non violenza, un desiderio di comprensione, un girare intorno al senso del proprio camminare. Questo libro è un taccuino di viaggio, ma anche il racconto illustrato, caldo, dettagliato, di come vacillano le certezze col mal di montagna, d
