(Rough Guides)
US: Aug 2009

If you’ve already done the standard European or American trip and are hungering for a bit of adventure and something different, or if you fret about the carbon footprint that your jet-setting ways enlarge, then Clean Breaks is right up your alley. British journalists Richard Hammond and Jeremy Smith wander the world in search of 500 environmentally-responsible and off-the-beaten path holiday ideas designed for the mentally and physically active traveler. Learn about how you can bike from Prague to Vienna with cozy overnight stops along the way, or camp in a comfy Mongolian yurt in Andalucia, or go on an eco-tour of Iran or Rwanda. The book offers many options for bikers, hikers, nature lovers and those who want to go completely off the grid and take that real clean break.
