Nick Hunt is a writer and editor deeply engaged in the role travel and wonder can play in responding to the climate crisis and its related social crises. We spoke with him about his latest book, Outlandish - another excellent addition to the world of slow travel literature.
Nick Hunt is a writer, storyteller and editor whose work explores the relationship between society and landscape. He is best known for three travel books. Walking the Woods and the Water, he retraces Patrick Leigh Fermor's epic walk from Holland to Istanbul. In Where the Wild Winds Are, Nick again sets out on foot, to trace four winds shaping European landscapes and cultures. Most recently, in Outlandish, Nick travels through four unlikely European landscapes. Nick also continues to edit the journal of The Dark Mountain Project, a cultural movement in search of stories that can help us respond to the climate emergency with a 'hope beyond hope'.
