Lonely planet writer Catherine Le Nevez describes why she loves Amsterdam. "Amsterdam's balancing act between its seeming contradictions constantly inspire me. It's full of history, with Golden Age canal houses, Old Masters paintings and jenever tasting houses, yet it's also at the cutting edge of tech innovation, environmental sustainability and break-out design. It's resolutely dutch, but equally a melting pot with an incredible diversity of cultures and cuisines. A major European capital, it's compact and intimate. And while it famously has a wild side, it also harbours wonderfully low-key, village-like neighbourhoods and creative, repurposed industrial spaces."

2. Het Scheepvaart-museum 

3. Anne Frank Huis

Hike Drive Stayin' Alive 10 Stories of Adventure

Out of shape and unprepared, The Raven Brothers return to the road in a collection of ten quests to travel to their dream destinations against all odds! After two decades pioneering new routes across the globe, you would expect the authors of 'Driving the Trans-Siberian' to be hotshot explorers, with a sixth sense and an ability to survive in almost any situation. Think again!

With virtually zero knowledge of the workings of the internal combustion engine and very limited skills of wilderness survival, Simon and Chris struggle into their hiking boots and power across three continents by river, tarmac and trail. Venture to the top of Norway, cruise the road to Damascus, hike the Camino trail into Spain’s Wild West, row the Ganges, explore Frida Kahlo’s world in Mexico City, hangout with the dead in Sicily’s eerie catacombs, crawl deep inside Bolivia’s notorious silver mine, seek lions in Gujarat, wellness in Berlin and journey into the Naga Hills where tribal kings still rule.

 'Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive!' signals a return to the duo writing “buttock clenching” travel comedy with the first in a series of candid stories of adventure by The Raven Brothers.
