6. Around the World in 80 Trains: A 45,000-Mile Adventure

“Anything,” says travel writer Paul Theroux, “is possible on a train: a great meal, a binge, a visit from card players, an intrigue, a good night’s sleep, and strangers’ monologues framed like Russian short stories.”

British journalist Monisha Rajesh, the author of ‘Around India in 80 Trains,’ begins this book by recalling her train journeys in India and her resolve to avoid anything so ambitious in future. However, in her own words, “… the railways had followed me home – their dust in my hair, their rhythm in my bones, their charm infused in my blood…” which compelled her to travel again, on a global scale this time. So she sets out from St Pancras station in London, accompanied by her fiancé Jeremy (“Jem”), who quit his job to travel with her.

The book consists of 15 chapters which chronicle the journeys of Monisha and Jem across the globe.

7. Road to Mekong: Four Women, Six Countries, 17,000 Kilometres – An Adventure of a Lifetime

For fifty-six days, four women left their ‘regular lives’, homes, families and comfort, to ride their motorbikes through scenic landscapes, inhospitable terrain and diverse regions. In this process, they covered 17, 000 kilometres through six countries. What inspired them to follow this dangerous, and at times maddening, adventure trail?

In road to Mekong, Piya Bahadur recounts her once-in-a-lifetime journey through Southeast Asia. With little prior experience in expeditions of this nature. The group successfully planned and executed an exhilarating trip from Hyderabad, through the East Indian Coast and the Northeast of India, weaving through Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, along the river Mekong, and finally to Cambodia. By the time they returned, the lives of these audacious women had changed forever.
