Prise oneself from one's armchair

"Every lady should, to my mind, know how to use a revolver. She may at any time be in China or some other country where there are savage natives," Walter Winans, 1904. In addition to some antique advice in 'The lost art of travel: a handbook of modern adventurer' by Vic Darkwood, our travel recent picks look at Tuscany, Rio, Indian rail journeys, Northland and the Himalayas.
