In a time when travel was curtailed John Murray re-published travel classics looking at journeys in the past to find inspiration in the now.
''Like the best adventures we wanted the series to be surprising. Blurring genres, travelling with purpose or guided by serendipity, on foot, camel or car, all the writers are united by a gift to open our imaginations to unfamiliar places and cultures, or allowing us to see familiar things through different eyes. These Journeys give fresh perspectives not only on the times and places in which they were originally published, but on the time and place we find ourselves in now.''-John Murray Press
