Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant: True Tales and Gossip from the Galley

Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant: True Tales and Gossip from the Galley

Owen Beddall ,  Libby Harkness

$34.99

Want to know what really goes on on an aeroplane? Let's go behind the scenes and fly high with these tall tales and gossip from the galley! Everyone wants to be a flight attendant, or at least they want to know about the cushy lifestyle they lead - flying to exotic destinations, swanning about in five-star hotels, daytime lazing around the pool and night-time tabletop dancing with Bollywood stars. At last the lid is lifted. Come on board a real airline with a real flight attendant and find out what really goes on. In Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant - True Tales and Gossip from the Galley, Owen Beddall dishes the dirt - he tells you the things you always wanted to know (and maybe a few things you didn't) about the glamorous world of flying. This book is packed with cabin crew adventures and misadventures in and out of that smart uniform in far flung places. There's sex, drugs and lots of celebrity gossip; Katy Perry, Lily Allen, Kylie Minogue, Venus Williams and Cate Blanchett - are all in the galley having a gossip with Owen. Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant is a hilariously bumpy ride around the world with a very funny man.
The Bookshop That Floated Away

The Bookshop That Floated Away

Sarah Henshaw

$19.99

In early 2009 a strange sort of business plan landed on the desk of a pinstriped bank manager. It had pictures of rats and moles in rowing boats and archaic quotes about Cleopatra's barge. It asked for a GBP30,000 loan to buy a black-and-cream narrowboat and a small hoard of books. The manager said no. Nevertheless The Book Barge opened six months later and enjoyed the happy patronage of local readers, a growing number of eccentrics and the odd moorhen. Business wasn't always easy, so one May morning owner Sarah Henshaw set off for six months chugging the length and breadth of the country. Books were bartered for food, accommodation, bathroom facilities and cake. During the journey, the barge suffered a flooded engine, went out to sea, got banned from Bristol and, on several occasions, floated away altogether. This account follows the ebbs and flows of Sarah's journey as she sought to make her vision of a floating bookshop a reality.
Indonesia Etc.: Exploring the Improbable Nation

Indonesia Etc.: Exploring the Improbable Nation

Elizabeth Pisani

$29.99

One in 30 of the people on this planet is Indonesian. The 13,000 islands of their homeland, scattered along the equator, stretch the distance from London to Tehran, and the residents of the capital, Jakarta, tweet more than those of any other city on the planet. By any standard, Indonesia is a global hub, one of the most dynamic and diverse countries of the 21st century. But you don't have to look far from metropolitan Jakarta to find poverty, superstition, ancient rituals and black magic.

Travelling from volcanoes and jungles to reefs and snowy peaks, investigative reporter Elizabeth Pisani sets out to capture the real Indonesia. On the way she meets the Sultan of Jogjakarta, a former presidential candidate who keeps a posse of albino dwarfs in his court, visits one of the largest red light districts in Asia, joins protesters trying to ban Lady Gaga from their homeland, and takes tea with a recently deceased grandmother.

Written with Pisani's trademark wit and brio, this is an entertaining and indispensable guide to a fascinating country we can't afford not to know more about.
The Last Train to Zona Verde: Overland from Cape Town to Angola

The Last Train to Zona Verde: Overland from Cape Town to Angola

Paul Theroux

$22.99

Following the success of the acclaimed Ghost Train to the Eastern Star and The Great Railway Bazaar , The Last Train to Zona Verde is an ode to the last African journey of the world's most celebrated travel writer, Paul Theroux. 'Happy again, back in the kingdom of light,' writes Paul Theroux as he sets out on a new journey though the continent he knows and loves best. Having travelled down the right-hand side of Africa in Dark Star Safari, he sets out this time from Cape Town, heading northwards in a new direction, up the left-hand side, through South Africa and Namibia, to Botswana, then on into Angola, heading for the Congo, in search of the end of the line. Journeying alone through the greenest continent in what he feels will be his last African journey, Theroux encounters a world increasingly removed from both the itineraries of tourists and the hopes of post-colonial independence movements. Leaving the Cape Town townships, traversing the Namibian bush, passing the browsing cattle of the great sunbaked heartland of the savannah, Theroux crosses the Red Line into a different Africa: the improvised, slapped-together Africa of tumbled fences and cooking fires, of mud and thatch, of heat and poverty, and of roadblocks, mobs and anarchy. A final African adventure from the writer whose gimlet eye and effortless prose have brought the world to generations of readers, The Last Train to Zona Verde is Paul Theroux's ultimate safari.
Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James

Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James

David Downie

$21.95

Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, and health crises, David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk across France to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue Saint-Jacques and trekking 750 miles south to Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes seventy-two days on Roman roads and pilgrimage paths a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading to the sanctuary of Saint James the Greater. For Downie, the inward journey met the outer one: a combination of self-discovery and physical regeneration. More than 200,000 pilgrims take the highly commercialized Spanish route annually, but few cross France. Downie had a goal: to go from paris to the pyrenees on age-old trails, making the pilgrimage in his own maverick way.
Greetings from Oz: Snapshots from the Roadside

Greetings from Oz: Snapshots from the Roadside

Patrick Dalton

$19.99

'Don't judge Australia just by the Australians.' Dame Edna Everadge Welcome to Australia. One of the most far-flung and beautiful destinations in the world. Home to the dreamiest coastlines and cityscapes human beings have ever clapped their eyes on. Home of dags, bingles, snags and sangers, Australia boasts some of the planet's most exotic, dangerous and unique species of animal and insect and, irrefutably, the most inspiring outback terrain and ocean vistas known to man. It is the country referred to as the land of the plenty, God's Own Country. And it's true. It is. But God's been a bit absent lately. Which is why, now, after all these years, Australia has started to look a little shitty. A little overgrown. A little bit long in the tooth. It is, in short, a country in need of a good hose down ...and a hug. This is a hilarious collection of photographs of one of the world's most ridiculous countries at its worst. The photos reveal the eccentricities, bleakness and humour of every nook and cranny of the entire country - the dry bleak deserts and the over-the-top natives. Shit Australia is a warts-and-all walk around the world's most crazy country, seen through the eyes of its own locals and Patrick Dalton - the quintessential Englishman down under. Word count: 3,000

Drover: A Celebration of Bruce Simpson's Outback

Drover: A Celebration of Bruce Simpson's Outback

Bruce Simpson ,  Darren Clark

$39.99

Photographer Darren Clark has captured the spirit of Bruce Simpson's outback in glorious colour, revisiting and celebrating the historic properties, landscapes, droving routes, towns and people of today's outback. Based on Where the Outback Drovers Ride, the much-loved memoir of bushman and drover Bruce Simpson, Drover celebrates a way of life that has all but vanished - and records how it's changed with time. From saddling up at dawn, through long days of heat, dust and sheer hard graft working cattle, to evenings spent joking around the campfire, photographer Darren Clark was there to record contemporary outback life. In doing so he has captured the spirit of Bruce Simpson's yarns and memories in more than 150 images of the historic properties, landscapes, droving routes, towns and people of outback Northern Territory and Queensland. Darren followed in Bruce's footsteps from the Barkly Tableland and stations such as Brunette Downs in the NT to the towns, stations and landscapes of the Birdsville, Ilfracombe and Camooweal areas.
Beijing

Beijing

Linda Jaivin

$32.99

Beijing is an intimate and informed portrait of a city at the centre of one of the world's oldest civilizations and the capital of one of its newest superpowers. For hundreds of thousands of years, humans and their ancestors - Peking Man among them - have lived here. Over three and a half millennia, cities have risen and fallen in this place, five of them the capitals of dynastic empires. For centuries the stage for sieges, massacres, rebellions and political spectacle, Beijing has produced or inspired some of China's greatest and most iconic works of literature, theatre and music. At this book's heart is a concise, lively history of the city, full of big and charismatic personalities and dramatic events. Thought-provoking essays on topics ranging from the elemental problems of water and air to the vibrant art scene and the architectural adventurism of the city's 'hyperbuildings' take the reader to the shores of the city's lakes, down into its subway system and through its bustling art districts. Generously illustrated with modern photographs and compelling historical images and containing a number of useful listings, Beijing is the ultimate introduction to this extraordinary city for travellers and general readers alike.
Fragrant Heart: A Tale of Love, Life and Food in South-East Asia

Fragrant Heart: A Tale of Love, Life and Food in South-East Asia

Miranda Emmerson

$22.99

We buy food we can point to. We stalk the streets until rush hour and wait for the little hatches to open in the sides of restaurants. From the steamy openings, cooks in overalls sell jiaozi (dumplings) and bowls of thick, sticky, white congee - an unholy cross between soup and porridge. Baozi, steamed white buns, are light as air. I buy them filled with water spinach and nettle - delicious dipped in sharp, black Chinese vinegar. In 2008, Miranda and her partner set off for one last big adventure before settling down. They chose to travel through South-East Asia. All did not go to plan: Asian flu, falling off boats and the general chaos of a life abroad challenged them at every step, and yet, in the midst of it all, they fell in love with the culture and culinary delights of China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia.
The Friendship Highway: Two Journeys in Tibet

The Friendship Highway: Two Journeys in Tibet

Charlie Carroll

$22.99

Tibet was not just on the horizon, it capped it. Four thousand metres above this city was a country of stone and ice, and, even though it was officially closed, there was still a way in. This is a compelling and unforgettable encounter on the roof of the world...Hoping to reach Tibet after a twenty-year obsession, Charlie Carroll travelled to China. Contending with Chinese bureaucracy, unforgiving terrain and sickness-inducing altitude, Charlie experienced twenty-first-century Tibet in all its heartbreaking beauty. Tibetan-born Lobsang fled the volatile region over the Himalayas, on foot, as a child in 1989. An exile in Nepal, then a student in India, he was called back to Tibet by love. At the end of the road known as the Friendship Highway, he met Charlie and recounted his extraordinary life story, exemplifying the hardship, resilience and hope of modern Tibetan life.

The Last Days of the Bus Club

Chris Stewart

$22.99

It's two decades since Chris Stewart moved to his farm on the wrong side of a river in the mountains of southern Spain and his daughter Chloe is preparing to fly the nest for university. In this latest, typically hilarious dispatch from El Valero we find Chris, now a local literary celebrity, using his fame to help his old sheep-shearing partner find work on a raucous road trip; cooking a TV lunch for visiting British chef, Rick Stein; discovering the pitfalls of Spanish public speaking; and recalling his own first foray into the adult world of work. Yet it's at El Valero, his beloved sheep farm, that Chris remains in his element as he, his wife Ana and their assorted dogs, cats and sheep weather a near calamitous flood and emerge as newly certified organic farmers. His cash crop? The lemons and oranges he once so blithely drove over, of course.
My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me

My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me

Boris Mihailovic

$19.99

Whether you're into dirt bikes, road bikes, ride a Yamaha, scooter or Laverda: if you've ever experienced the primal rush of riding a motorcycle, the pain of crashing, the suffering of healing and the epiphanies of speed, then this book is for you.MY MOTHER WARNED ME ABOUT BLOKES LIKE ME is about friendship, treachery, girls in tight pants and motorcycles that have been possessed by Satan. It's about brotherhood, camaraderie, drugs, alcohol and being hounded by the police for daring to combine them all at once. It's about breaking the law, and racing 1000 kilometres through the night for money and thrills. It's about massive amputations, bovine stupidity, maniacal genius and the wisdom of the old. It's about impossible highs and soul-crushing lows, about demons and brothers and dirt and danger, and houses with iron bars instead of glass in their windows.Essentially it's about Boris Mihailovic's life. With motorcycles.PRAISE for MY MOTHER WARNED ME ABOUT BLOKES LIKE ME: 'Boris has more fun on two wheels than should be legally possible...' RICHARD FIDLER, ABC'Mihailovic uses humour like most people would use their fists.' COURIER-MAIL'His love of motorcycling, mateship and frequent, subsequent mayhem is matched by a natural writing ability that graphically, often hilariously, brings to life the two-wheeled experiences that have shaped his life...Highly recommended.' 4 X 4 MAGAZINE'There is no requirement to love everything on two wheels to enjoy this book but it would seriously help, as our resident bike nut said about Boris: This guy lives and breathes motorbikes. He's the epitome of two-wheel freedom. ' MINING CHRONICLE
Deep: A Sea Odyssey: Freediving, Renegade Science and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves

Deep: A Sea Odyssey: Freediving, Renegade Science and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves

James Nestor

$27.99

Covering a diving championship in Greece on a hot and sticky assignment for Outside magazine, James Nestor discovered free diving. He had stumbled on one of the most extreme sports in existence: a quest to extend the frontiers of human experience, in which divers descend without breathing equipment, for hundreds of feet below the water, for minutes after they should have died from lack of oxygen. Sometimes they emerge unconscious, or bleeding from the nose and ears, and sometimes they don't come up at all. The free divers were Nestor's way into an exhilarating and dangerous world of deep-sea pioneers, underwater athletes, scientists, spear fishermen, billionaires and ordinary men and women who are poised on the brink of some amazing discoveries about the ocean. Soon he was visiting the scientists who live 60ft underwater (and are permanently high on nitrous dioxide), swimming with the notorious man-eating sharks of Reunion and descending thousands of feet in a homemade submarine. And on the way down, he learnt about the amazing amphibious reflexes activated in the human body under deep-water conditions, why dolphins were injected with LSD in an attempt to teach them to talk, and why sharks like AC/DC. The sea covers seventy per cent of Earth's surface, and still contains answers to questions about the world we are only beginning to ask: Deep blends science and adventure to uncover its amazing secrets.
Japan's World Heritage Sites: Unique Culture, Unique Nature

Japan's World Heritage Sites: Unique Culture, Unique Nature

John Dougill

$39.99

Visit the most compelling cultural and nature sites in all of Japan--and the world! In Japan's World Heritage Sites, readers are introduced to the temples, gardens, castles and natural wonders for which Japan is so justly renowned--all of those now declared to be Unesco World Heritage Sites. Author John Dougill describes each site in detail, stating why they were singled out by Unesco, the current number and types of sites, the application process, how the sites have been selected, and how difficult it is to be given the special status of a World Heritage Site. Dougill traveled to all of the sites in Japan to research this book. Because the Japanese archipelago extends from Siberia all the way down to Taiwan, Dougill describes how his journey led him from the sub-Arctic to the sub-tropical zones. These are without a doubt the most interesting sites that Japan has to offer, including the following: Mount Fuji, Japan's tallest and most sacred volcano. Located on Honshu Island near Tokyo, Mt. Fuji is considered the sacred symbol of Japan Himeji Castle, a monument from Japan's long feudal history. Also known as Egret Castle, because it looks like a bird taking off in flight. Horyu-ji Temple, the world's oldest surviving wooden structure--a center of Buddhist learning that still serves as a seminary and monastery Hiroshima Peace Memorial or Atomic-Bomb Dome--one of the few structures to partially survive the atomic blast in 1945 The Ogasawara Islands, a remote archipelago of over 30 islands--including Iwo Jima--that is home to rare wildlife and spectacular sceneryReaders will learn how Japan first became involved with the World Heritage Sites program back in 1993, the importance of these designations, and their popularity in Japan, where they are visited by millions of people annually, both Japanese and foreigners.
Tokyo Megacity

Tokyo Megacity

Ben Simmons

$38.99

It has been said that every city has its high points, but Tokyo is all exclamation points! The largest and most populous city in the world, Tokyo must be experienced in person to truly be understood. The next best thing? Tokyo Megacity --a visual and descriptive exploration of a city that combines old with new and traditional with trendy, like no other city in the world. This extraordinary book explores Tokyo through 250 revealing photographs by well-known photographer Ben Simmons and over 30 essays by famed author Donald Richie. Their love of the city, their sense of its history, and the deep respect and pure joy felt in being here, shine through on every page. Simmons and Richie show us how modern Tokyo evolved from a patchwork of villages that still exist today as distinct neighborhoods and districts, to the modern, trendsetting metropolis renowned the world over--that combine to make Tokyo a unique and special place. Tokyo Megacity presents the districts of the city in the order that they originally developed, starting with the Imperial Palace, sliding down to the Low City along the Sumida River, soaring back up to the Mid-City, and finally, climbing the hills to the newer districts of the High City. The combination of Ben Simmons' photographs and Donald Richie's text capture, as never before, the tremendous diversity, vitality and sheer livability of the megacity that is Tokyo.
