Some people have really thick passports. In “Boarding Passes to Faraway Places” (published by Archway Publishing), adventure travel writer Guy A. Sibilla offers to road warriors and arm chair travelers alike a collection of eight travelogues from destinations across the planet.

He describes, for instance, his chance meeting with the President of Guatemala who choppered into a jungle LZ next to his mules, his spur-of-the-moment arrival in Rangoon on his birthday, wandering the souks of Damascus and spending the summer at K2 in the Karakoram at -20C. Sibilla’s self-described “captivating, charming and wholly entertaining” narratives weave abundant historical and cultural references both past and present.

“Travel has been a lifelong love affair with the world,” Sibilla says. “And like true love, it has proven to be unpredictable but always an immeasurable delight. After all, the word joy is found within the word journey.”
