    ‘The World’s 100 Best Adventure Trips’ by Jasmina Trifoni

    Veteran traveler Jasmina Trifoni has gathered brilliant photography and insider advice in “The World’s 100 Best Adventure Trips” (White Star). For a trip to Ethiopia to trace the origins of human civilization, she writes, “prepare yourself for mud and a torrid climate” during January and February when most traditional ceremonies are held. For a bus trip on the Grand Truck Road between the Taliban outpost of Peshawar and Calcutta, Trifoni suggests packing earplugs because drivers blast Bollywood film music 24/7. The adventures are organized into six chapters: “On Foot,” “On the Road,” “By Sea,” “On Two Wheels and Four Paws,”“Fresh Water Journey,” and “Adrenaline.”
