Since making his first voyage as a sailor-to earn his passage from his native Holland to South America -- Cees Nooteboom has been captivated by foreign countries and cultures and has never stopped travelling. This collection of his most enjoyable travel pieces ranges far and wide, informed throughout by the author's humanity and gentle humour. From exotic locales such as Isfahan, the Gambia and Mali to more familiar places such as Australia and Zurich, Nooteboom reveals the world as he lives it, showing us the strangeness in places we thought we knew and the familiarity of places most of us will never visit. His phenomenal gifts as an observer and travel the wealth of his reading and learning make him a delightful companion. Nomad's Hotel features an introduction from fellow world-class traveller and writer extraordinaire Alberto Manguel.
