“Riding the Hulahula…” Lands Favorable Reviews

Both the New Orleans Times-Picayune and The Adventure Blog had solid things to say about this month’s launch of Riding the Hulahula, a new adventure book geared toward +50 travelers, but which has something for just about every member of the family and features numerous ATTA Member companies.

As covered in the (New Orleans) Times-Picayune:

Riding the Hulahula to the Arctic Ocean: A Guide to 50 Extraordinary Adventures for the Seasoned Traveler”
By Don Mankin and Shannon Stowell;National Geographic, $18.95

While one trip focuses on camping in Antarctica and another on sea kayaking in the northern reaches of Canada, among others of these “50 Extraordinary Adventures” are journeys for older — OK, fairly fit — travelers who are more into satisfying their curiosity about other parts of the world than into roughing it. Many of the accounts are told in first-person by travelers, who, in the words of writer Pico Iyer, travel to “slip through the curtain of the ordinary.” It begins with an account by author Mankin, who received a cautionary health report from a doctor right before going on the Hulahula River in Alaska to the Arctic Ocean. He went anyway. That’s the message: Embrace every day. Go see the world.

An excerpt from The Adventure Blog’s book review:

“Riding the Hulahula to the Arctic Ocean attempts to be a guidebook for adventurer travelers, and for the most part, I’d say it succeeds. It covers a lot of ground in it’s 304 pages and serves as a really great reference for the seasoned traveler who is looking for something a little different.”
