Discover 100 Life-Changing Travel Experiences with The Best Moment of Your Life from Lonely Planet

What’s the best moment of your life? It’s a simple question to ask, but a more challenging one to answer.

In Lonely Planet’s The Best Moment of Your Life, published this month, notable names from the world of travel share their most remarkable, poignant and memorable experiences from the road – moments that changed them as individuals and reshaped their perspectives of the world.

This collection of 100 powerful, inspiring stories will encourage readers to think a little differently about the planet and reflect on the transformative power of travel.

Each featured experience is unique – both in how it plays out and how it has impacted the author. The collected tales convey the sheer variety of ways that travel can positively affect your life.

Experiences include:

  • High points and adventurous accomplishments: From summiting Yosemite's Half Dome and cycling 11,000km around the shores of the Mediterranean, to crossing the Gobi desert on foot and proving to yourself that parenthood won’t curb your adventurous spirit.
  • Wading into your own history or that of others: Including witnessing the first free speech of Nelson Mandela and watching a space shuttle launch.
  • Experiencing the power and majesty of wildlife: From a captivating encounter with a mountain gorilla, to a fleeting glimpse of a snow leopard and a long-awaited tiger sighting.

 

Each story includes a powerful and moving account of how the experience unfolded and what it was like to be there right at that moment, as well as how the experience affected the author.  The book also features sumptuous photography and practical details on how to undertake the trip yourself.

The Best Moment of Your Life includes contributions from:

  • The first woman and youngest person to row solo across the Indian & Pacific Oceans, Sarah Outen MBE
  • Actor, travel adventurer and motorcycle enthusiast, Charley Boorman
  • World-leading adventure explorer, Benedict Allen
  • Actor, director and travel writer, Andrew McCarthy
  • Award-winning novelist, Suzanne Joinson
