Whereas the majority of travellers follow well- flagged routes, Thomas Yzebe, has decided to step away from the major tourist zones. His challenge? Proving that it isn’t the place you visit that makes your trip but the people who live local. From Istanbul to Bangkok, Thomas lets the locals guide him with their depth of knowledge on unknown and magical places. Sometimes, it takes only a smile and dash of audacity to get taken off on the most improbable of adventures such as climbing a church roof in Palermo, sleeping in a Buddhist temple in Bangkok or making an impromptu visit to a tumble down theatre in Tangiers. In between moving encounters and spectacular views, Thomas gains an unexpected insight into the history and traditions of the places he visits. With his notebook, his savvy and his curiosity, our «serial tourist» relentlessly seeks out exceptional spots in Bombay, Ouagadougou, Tirana, Lisbon, Taipei... To travel differently, you have to be willing to try new things, accept that you’ll get lost and be open to surprises. So, goodbye to organised travel and welcome to a world where you’ll visit unusual places and discover what they’re really like from the inside.
