Adventure is a state of mind. An addiction to the unexpected, the unknown, freedom, and risk. It’s Steve McQueen driving his speeding bullets during the shooting of Le Mans; Dian Fossey with her gorillas in Rwanda; Lawrence of Arabia fascinated by the Jordanian desert; Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda crossing New Mexico on their Harleys; and Harry Potter at Hogwarts. In this book, Francisca Matteoli follows the paths of these adventurers and brings their legendary films to life, connecting each narrative with an unusual hotel. A unique and personal guidebook, full of anecdotes, information, and souvenirs.
Born in Chile, Francisca Matteoli spent her childhood in Latin America. Today, from her Paris home, she writes travel books and contributes to National Geographic France and Conde Nast Traveler. She is the author of the popular Hotel Stories: Legendary Hideaways of the World, Island Hotel Stories and American Hotel Stories published by Assouline.
