A mix of travel tips, history, music and fine food as I explore Venezuela in the footsteps of the great German scientist and adventurer Alexander von Humboldt.

Bradt Guide to Venezuela goes to Roraima
Thanks to Dharmender Singh Tathgur the Bradt Guide to Venezuela is on the move. This is a shot of the book in front of the imposing tepui Roraima taken from the stoney banks of the Rio Kukenan.
Dharmender's next stop is the highest waterfall in the world, Angel Falls - or Kerepakupai-Meru in the language of the local Pemon people. Let's hope he gets some shots to rival the spectacular cover photo of the falls.
This photo shows the Bradt Guide to Venezuela in the Pemon village of Paraitepuy, the starting and finishing point for treks to the top of Roraima. Keep sending the photos. It's so great to see the book being used to get people safely round Venezuela.
