Join us to meet and celebrate intrepid traveller and pioneer Hilary Bradt as Bradt Guides celebrate their 50th anniversary.
In her memoir Taking the Risk, Hilary looks back on fifty years of escapades, disasters and triumphs in travel and publishing. With insightful reflections, hilarious anecdotes, and some heart-stopping antics, it’s a fascinating read, and Hilary will be talking about some of those adventures at this very special event.
Today, at 82 and still hitchhiking, Hilary reflects: “I’ve been lucky in so many ways, but to have been born with an adventurous spirit and parents who never said ‘Take care’ feels like a special gift. In recent years more and more people seem to be risk averse, denying themselves the joy of the unknown and of serendipitous happenings. Travel can never be without risk – that’s part of its attraction.”
