The Strangest Stories and Oddest Images from Around the World
A wacky compendium of the quirky side of travel compiled with images and stories from Wanderlust readers.
Compiled from over 300 winning photos from a reader competition in "Wanderlust" magazine, "Weird World" documents the more outlandish observations from across the globe. From the signpost in a park in Chenddu, China, instructing passers' by to, 'Please do not feed the fishes with your private', to Polygamy Porter, Kanab, Utah's specialty beer, ('why have just one?' asks the label), "Weird World" celebrates the bizarre, the hilarious and the frankly unfortunate sights to be found on our very strange planet. Divided into six sections - people, food, transport, animals, art and just plain odd - it combines photographs and traveller anecdotes with a hilarious dose of roadsigns and menus. "Wanderlust" (circulation 37,000) is the UK's leading magazine for independent-minded and adventurous travellers. Celebrating 35 years of the unusual, "Bradt Travel Guides" is the UK's leading independent travel publisher.
