Authors of ‘Driving the Tran-Siberian’ power across three continents by river, tarmac and trail, in this major new book of short travel adventures covering destinations including Norway, Damascus, Mexico City, Sicily, Bolivia, Gujarat and Berlin.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - November 22nd, 2020 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - London, 22 November 2020: Independent travel publisher Samosir Books announced today the publication of 'Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive!', the fifth book by travel adventure writers The Raven Brothers, Simon and Chris Raven.

Out of shape and unprepared, the authors of cult travel book 'Driving the Trans-Siberian' find themselves back on the road a decade after their epic road-trip, with this collection of ten new short stories of travel and comedy misadventure to their dream destinations, against all odds.

Still a long way from ever being hotshot explorers, but with a sharp sixth sense for travel and an ability to survive in almost any situation, 'Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive!' sees Simon and Chris struggle into their hiking boots and power across three continents by river, tarmac and trail.

The ten stories cover ten incredible journeys, as they venture to the top of Norway, cruise the road to Damascus, hike the Camino trail into Spain's Wild West, row the Ganges, explore Frida Kahlo's world in Mexico City, hangout with the dead in Sicily's eerie catacombs, crawl deep inside Bolivia's notorious silver mine, seek lions in Gujarat, wellness in Berlin and journey into the Naga Hills on the border of India and Myanmar where tribal kings still rule.

Simon Raven said: “You know you’re a complete travel junky when you see a bus rolling out of town and yearn to be on it. It’s unlikely that feeling is ever going to go away, and this new book pays homage to that with our most extraordinary series of travel adventures yet.”

Chris Raven said: “It’s twenty years since we first started travelling and writing, both together and separately. For this book, it felt like Simon’s looming midlife crisis was best shared - and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world! We hope that ‘Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive!’ – like all of our books - inspires people to just go – get out there – even if your means, and experience, is limited.”

Noted by Lonely Planet for their talent to portray an "accurate view of what to expect” whilst travelling, 'Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive!' signals a return to the duo writing "buttock clenching" travel comedy. With many of the adventures consisting of second-hand cars, impossibly small budgets, and plenty of angst, paranoia and downright incompetence, Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive! is the antidote to anyone who has felt too intimidated to travel.

'Hike, Drive, Stayin' Alive!' by The Raven Brothers is out now in paperback and kindle through Amazon:
