They say every journey starts with a single step. This book started with a single conversation at Frankfurt in 2006 with Kevin Mulroy, then Editorial Director at National Geographic. We hatched a plan for a killer travel book and one year later, Journeys of a Lifetime was published. That year, it was Barnes & Noble’s Number One Christmas gift book. Ten years on, the journey hasn’t ended and Journeys of a Lifetime is still going strong. It has reprinted many times and been published in 18 languages. Bill Gates even gave it to someone as a Secret Santa gift providing some fantastic publicity when news of his gift went viral! May the journey continue.
