In October 2002, Elliott Hester sold his car, abandoned his apartment, and took off alone on a trip around the world, during which he drifted to over fifty destinations.

Travel with him as he: · Chases off transvestites in the South Pacific · Gets drunk on Estonian moonshine at the maker's eightieth birthday party · Impersonates Samuel L. Jackson at the 38th International Film Festival in the Czech Republic · Ponders the Finnish tradition of sprinting from steamy sauna to plunge into the frigid Baltic Sea—naked! · And much more. Only an around-the-world excursion could produce such outlandish, hair-raising, hysterical adventures. And only Elliott Hester could make such vivid observations and write such vibrant insights about life---and people---on the road.

The Maya End Times A Spiritual Adventure to the Heart of the Maya Prophecies for 2012

The Maya End Times  A Spiritual Adventure to the Heart of the Maya Prophecies for 2012

A Spiritual Adventure to the Heart of the Maya Prophecies for 2012 Patricia ... sets my heart pounding with a passion, as it has every time I have visited.

According to the Maya Prophecies, the 5,000-year Fourth Age will come to it end in 2012. In a remarkable adventure which takes her all over Central South America and involves strange ceremonies at sacred pyramids, scaling an active volcano and chases with drug runners, Patricia Mercier attempts to discover whether 2012 will be the end of the world as know it or the dawning of a new golden age. When Patricia Mercier embarked on her personal quest to discover what the Maya people think may happen in 2012 she had no idea what to expect, and was surprised to be given a special mission; an old woman entrusted her with a life-size quartz crystal skull, telling her to carry it to the End of Time . To understand and prepare for her part in the rite, Patricia studied with Maya teachers and shamans; was blessed, tested, raised up and cast down. She was chased by drug-runners, saved by a mysterious guardian, inspired by visions and tested by Maya calendar-keepers. Her search led her to mystic ceremonies at Mayan pyramids; to the top of a lava-spewing volcano; into deep, dark underground passages; to the tombs of ancient kings - and to encounters with otherworldly beings. Patricia s experiences in the magical world of the Mayas, gives us a glimpse of what these ancient people really think and feel about life, how different their concept of time is and explains that the world has a choice between crisis and breakthrough in the build-up to 2012. The Maya End Times is a potent mix of serious investigation, travel adventure and inner experience compelling and unforgettable at the same time. We cannot afford to ignore the prophecies for the End Times, and we must rediscover the ancient wisdom that can help us change our world.

The Adventures of a Tropical Tramp, first published in 1922, is the first of several travel narratives by Harry La Tourette Foster (1894-1932), a World War One veteran who, seized by wanderlust, would spend much of his adult life traveling and working first in South America (the subject of this book), and later in Asia, the South Pacific, and the Caribbean. While in South America, Foster recounts his experiences as a miner, reporter, war correspondent, diplomatic attaché, guide, companion, and piano player, ending with an extended voyage down the Amazon and its tributaries. His writing vividly - and often humorously - portrays the people he met, the local culture, and his desire for new adventures. Included are 4 pages of photographs.

Jack London was a writer, but more than that, he was an adventurer who wrote about his adventures. Growing up working class in San Francisco, London diligently scrounged out a life riding trains, pirating oysters, working on a sealing ship, and working at a cannery, all the while using his free time to hole up in libraries reading novels and travel books. A harrowing voyage aboard a sealing ship, where he and the crew were almost killed by a typhoon, convinced him to start writing stories. After a brief time on the east coast and a stint in the Yukon mining for gold, London returned to California. He published his stories in the Overland Monthly, which prompted him to become more disciplined in his writing. He published numerous novels over the years, including The Call of the Wild, a story about a dog who becomes a sled dog in the Yukon, The People of the Abyss, which heavily critiqued capitalism, and John Barleycorn, a memoiristic novel that detailed his struggles with alcoholism. With quotes from the array of Jack London’s writings, readers will get a sense of his life as well as a keen yearning for undertaking their own adventures.

Repositions Bachelard as a critical and integral part of contemporary continental philosophy. Like Schelling before him and Deleuze and Guattari after him, Gaston Bachelard made major philosophical contributions to the advancement of science and the arts. In addition to being a mathematician and epistemologist whose influential work in the philosophy of science is still being absorbed, Bachelard was also one of the most innovative thinkers on poetic creativity and its ethical implications. His approaches to literature and the arts by way of elemental reverie awakened long-buried modes of thinking that have inspired literary critics, depth psychologists, poets, and artists alike. Bachelard’s extraordinary body of work, unduly neglected by the English-language reception of continental philosophy in recent decades, exhibits a capacity to speak to the full complexity and wider reaches of human thinking. The essays in this volume analyze Bachelard as a phenomenological thinker and situate his thought within the Western tradition. Considering his work alongside that of Schelling, Husserl, Bergson, Buber, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Deleuze, and Nancy, this collection highlights some of Bachelard’s most provocative proposals on questions of ontology, hermeneutics, ethics, environmental politics, spirituality, and the possibilities they offer for productive transformations of self and world.
