Over a hundred miles off the Florida coast (but linked by road) Hemingway's Key West remains a hotbed of hedonistic sloth. Lush, laid-back and wholly self-indulgent. This is America’s tropical paradise.
Trace the exploits of history's greatest explorers through far-flung (and exotically beautiful) locations across the globe: L’Anse aux Meadows, . Kashgar, Mactan, Tenochtitlan, Source of the Nile, Ujiji, Coopers Creek, South Georgia and Liwa.
Lying 100 miles off Canada's Nova Scotia coastline, Sable Island has an evil and unwholesome reputation enhanced by its cameo role in the 'Perfect Storm'; altogether just the sort of place I find irresistible.
When the tarmac (or gravel) runs out some places can lodge in your memory forever through their mix of remoteness, melancholy and sheer physical beauty. Welcome to the end of the road, one of the great travel experiences.
