In a prison, igloo, or treehouse, on top of a mountain, or under the stars what's the next stop? Architecture and leisure meet in this glimpse into the craziest places to stay while on the road. The new ideas, transformed spaces, and new interpretations of lodging in Extreme Hotels all prioritize fun. Compiled within are 40 of the most exciting and unusual "overnights" in Europe, from converted lodges, art gallery hotels, geodesic domes, eco pods, and a bustling lounge hostel on a converted houseboat to a one room lodging extended in mid-air within the shell of a functioning wharf crane. Each hotel is described in terms of its architectural and design ingenuity, placed in context on a map of Europe, and introduced with key details including address, phone and fax numbers, date of establishment, and number of rooms and suites. Illustrated beautifully, the volume appeals to both the adventurous tourist and the armchair traveler.

It seemed a terrible shame to meet my end in Iowa; I couldn’t imagine any where more disappointing to die. The scenery hadn’t changed for weeks and I was slowly dissolving into stimulation-deprived madness. My current predicament,then – attempting to escape through cornfields from a gun-toting alcohol soaked rancher – was not something I expected.



Terrified at the prospect of a life spent behind a desk, without challenge or adventure, Leon took off to cross America on an overloaded bicycle packed with everything but common sense.Over five months and 6,000 miles, he cycled from New York to Seattle and then on to the Mexican border, facing tornados, swollen river crossings and one hungry black bear along the way. But he also met kind strangers who offered their food,wisdom, hospitality and even the occasional local history lesson, and learned what happens when you take a chance and follow the scent of adventure.

Tibet was not just on the horizon, it capped it. Four thousand metres above this city was a country of stone and ice, and, even though it was officially closed, there was still a way in.

A compelling and unforgettable encounter on the roof of the world…

Hoping to reach Tibet after a twenty-year obsession, Charlie Carroll travelled to China. Contending with Chinese bureaucracy, unforgiving terrain and sickness-inducing altitude, Charlie experienced twenty-first-century Tibet in all its heartbreaking beauty.

Tibetan-born Lobsang fled the volatile region over the Himalayas, on foot, as a child in 1989. An exile in Nepal, then a student in India, he was called back to Tibet by love. At the end of the road known as the Friendship Highway, he met Charlie and recounted his extraordinary life story, exemplifying the hardship, resilience and hope of modern Tibetan life.
