Lonely Planet’s Everyday Adventures


Embrace the traveller spirit closer to home with Lonely Planet’s Everyday Adventures, a new book packed full of inspiration you can use to rediscover somewhere familiar, or to help you explore a new destination when travelling.


Whether you want to explore your hometown in new ways, generally feel stuck for things to do, or just fancy a new challenge, the fun and varied activities within prove you don’t need to spend big or travel far for great adventures.


The 50 ‘everyday adventures’ in the book include themed tours and adventures, how to take inspiration from food, music and books, and ways to leave your journey in the hands of fate (or others!).


Each activity is accompanied by simple, easy-to-follow instructions, ideas on things to bring and a case study from someone who’s completed it, as well as surprising facts and anecdotes that shed light on the history and science behind each quirky quest.


Weave a little wonder into daily life and seek out urban solitude, take directions from a stranger, or do a good deed in the local community. Whatever adventure suits your mood, Everyday Adventures will inspire you to go exploring closer to home and discover a new side to where you live.
