We specialize in travel to remote, less-visited parts of the world, from the post-Soviet hinterlands of Ukraine and Central Asia to the sandy, romantic landscapes of Algeria and Mauritania.  As affirmed travel junkies, we maintain a large library of contemporary and antique travel books that our customers are free to peruse and read in-store over a cup of coffee in our library corner.

Interested in planning a trip to such a destination?  While we may not have good tips for where to stay in Paris or Cancun, we can help connect you with contacts across the world in destinations with less evolved tourist infrastructure to make trip planning less daunting.  We believe that travel in these places is extremely rewarding, and hope to evangelize the benefits of visiting off the beaten path destinations.

We are particularly well-versed in the following destinations, but would also be happy to brainstorm with you tips and tricks for visiting any destination that strikes your fancy!

  • Europe: Balkans (former Yugoslavia, Albania, Bulgaria), Baltics (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), and Ukraine
  • Central Asia and the Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan)
  • South America (Guyana, Suriname, Paraguay)
  • Africa (Algeria, Mauritania, Eritrea)
