So, you want to experience the ultimate overseas adventure?

Whether you’re a gap year student or young traveller, taking a sabbatical or career break, a parent or guardian wanting to travel with your children, or in retirement and looking for your next adventure – The Big Trip is for you.

Advice and information in this comprehensive companion, now in its 4th edition, has been thoroughly revised and updated to include expert tips and recommendations that will help you create and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime dream adventure abroad.

We’ve also added a new section about how to use your time away to turn your life’s passion into a new career, with advice on gaining professional accreditation in climbing, mountaineering, diving, sailing, snowsports, wildlife guiding and more. There’s also a chapter on accessible travel by Martin Heng for specialist destination and travel advice for those with a disability.

Improved accommodation advice now covers everything from cheap and cheerful digs for budget backpackers to higher-end hotels for those wishing to spend more.

Experiences include:

  • Blackwater rafting through eerie glow-worm-lit Waitomo Caves in New Zealand
  • Attempting a Tibetan kora (pilgrimage) around Mt Kailash, Asia’s most sacred mountain
  • Surfing your way along Hawaii's best beach breaks

  • Climbing to Bhutan's iconic cliff-clinging monastery, Taktshang Goemba
  • Taking a tandem hang-gliding flight from Pedra Bonita over Rio de Janeiro
