Around the World in 80 Trains

Sunday, February 3, 2019 - 15:00 to 16:00
- Stanfords Travel Writers Festival - Stanfords Travel Writers Festival


When Monisha Rajesh announced plans to circumnavigate the globe in eighty train journeys, she was met with wide-eyed disbelief. But it wasn’t long before she was carefully plotting a route that would cover 45,000 miles, almost twice the circumference of the earth,  coasting along the world’s most remarkable railways; from the cloud-skimming heights of Tibet’s Qinghai railway to silk sheeted splendour on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Monisha talks to Julia Wheeler about her automotive adventures.


After the talk, Monisha will be signing copies of her books, including Around the World in 80 Trains at the ‘Signings at Stanfords’ stand.
