Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*

Since the ancient Greeks, actor's have been society's storytellers. And ever since Hollywood first left the backlot, these storytellers have been traveling to far-flung corners of the world to tell those tales. We decided to ask some of the most widely traveled people in the film industry to sit down and tell us their own stories - personal, inspiring, funny, embarrassing and human experiences from their time on the road.

Lights, Camera ... Travel! includes 33 stories from screen stars including Alec Baldwin, Brooke Shields, Rolf de Heer, Paul Cox, Neil LaBute, Richard E Grant, Sandra Bernhard and Bruce Beresford. Edited by Andrew McCarthy and Don George

Mixed bag of Hollywood types and their travels. Writing is all over the map. Ba da ba. I thought this would be much more compelling. Read full review

Review: Lights, Camera..Travel!

User Review  - Claire - Goodreads

I enjoyed this collection of short stories enough, but I had to read it in small doses. Sometimes the writing just didn't grab me and other times I really had no interest in the place I was reading about. But for a free Nook Book, it was good! Read full review
