Overview

For most of us, traveling means visiting the most beautiful places on Earth Paris, the Taj Mahal, the Grand Canyon. It's rare to book a plane ticket to visit the lifeless moonscape of Canada's oil sand strip mines, or to set sail for the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But in "Visit Sunny Chernobyl, "Andrew Blackwell embraces a different kind of travel, taking a jaunt through the most gruesomely polluted places on Earth.

"Visit Sunny Chernobyl" fuses immersive first-person reporting with satire and analysis, making the case that it's time to start appreciating our planet as-is not as we wish it to be. Equal parts travelogue, expose environmental memoir, and faux guidebook, Blackwell careens through a rogue's gallery of environmental disaster areas in search of the worst the world has to offer and approaches a deeper understanding of what's really happening to our planet in the process."
