The lost art of travelling in exquisite style. The advantages of travel are incontestable: it broadens the mind as well as helping one to avoid the iniquities of a less-than-perfect married life. Those of an expeditionary bent will find The Gentleman's Guide to Travel full of timely and much-needed counsel, their appetite for wanderlust whetted at every new page. Mr Darkwood's sage advice - including how to repel leeches and maintain personal hygiene in the filthy heat of the Tropics - is sure to inspire a desperate ache for the cut and thrust of adventure in even the most urbane. Gentleman travellers everywhere will be induced to prise themselves from their armchair, gather up their portmanteau, don a tweed hunting jacket and set off on a sterling voyage of discovery.
Vic Darkwood is a writer, traveller and bon viveur, whose past projects include co-founding The Chap magazine in 1998 and co-writing several tomes, including The Gentleman's Guide to Motoring, The Chap Manifesto and Around the World in Eighty Martinis. Mr Darkwood is currently working on a concise history of marmalade. He is married to Mrs Darkwood, with no issue.
