"I love to travel comfortably, visit hospitable countries, stay in comfortable hotels and enjoy delicious food. Yet the places that leave you open-mouthed, the ones that take your breath away, are often the less comfortable, friendly and welcoming sites. They are the places where it is important to often look behind your back, the ones where you constantly touch your pocket to check that your passport is still safe. They are places that take you beyond the shadow line, where you can feel your heart beat faster and you begin to worry a bit for your own safety".

Tony Wheeler, co-founder of Lonely Planet, will be in conversation with Lee Marshall to mark the release of the Italian translation of his book Dark Lands.
