  • How Lonely Planet Became a $100 Million Company | A Current AffairRemember the days of traveling before the internet? All you had was a suitcase, a map, and if you were lucky, a Lonely Planet guidebook. This iconic travel company, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, was founded by Tony and Maureen Wheeler, an Australian couple who revolutionized the way we travel.Lonely Planet started with a simple idea: to publish guidebooks for travelers. They called their first book "The Lonely Planet," and it quickly became a must-have for adventurous souls looking to explore the world. Today, the company has sold over 150 million books and continues to be a trusted source of information for travelers.For dedicated travelers like Caroline Chesney, Lonely Planet guidebooks are still an essential companion. As a trekker who often finds herself off the beaten path with no access to the internet, Chesney relies on these books for reliable information on history, accommodations, dining options, and more.Lonely Planet covers destinations all over the world, from New York to Japan, France to Peru, and even the challenging terrains of Africa, like Mount Kilimanjaro. For globetrotters like Chesney, collecting Lonely Planet guidebooks has become a passion. She proudly displays her collection of 45 books, which she considers her travel bibles.It's remarkable to think that a simple idea conceived by Tony and Maureen Wheeler has blossomed into a $100 million company. Lonely Planet has not only fueled the wanderlust of countless travelers but also provided them with the tools and information they need to explore the world.

  • Yes, digital's great, but, you know, when you're in a tent high in the Himalayas, the digital doesn't happen.
  • There's no Wi Fi, so I love a Bible.
  • Anyway, the book that encouraged us to go one step further is celebrating a major milestone.
  • Happy birthday, Lonely Planet.
  • Fifty years old.
  • Fifty years young.
  • Thank you.
  • Happy birthday to Lonely Planet.
  • Why is it so popular?
  • It's been around for a long time, but it's a trusted brand, and it's got great writers who really know their stuff, but producing content that really helps travelers get the best experience they can.
  • Have you used it?
  • I have.
  • Whereabouts?
  • I've used it in Europe, in America, in Asia, all over the place.
  • Mark Rubo from Readings Bookstores.
  • Every week, he says, they're still selling hundreds of Lonely Planets.
  • Here's a really good example of how the Lonely Planet has progressed over the years.
  • Mark, you've got an example?
  • This is the first Lonely Planet ever published.
  • In the year of the year.
  • And how many pages on India?
  • There's seven pages on India.
  • Seven.
  • And here's the new Lonely Planet for India.
  • And there are, what, one thousand two hundred and fifty one pages.
  • This was a dollar eighty.
  • Oh, and what's this?
  • That is only forty five.
  • Forty five?
  • If you think in fifty years.
  • That's not bad.
  • It's not bad.
  • If the success of The Lonely Planet is extraordinary, so too is the way it all began back in the seventies.
  • Two twenty somethings, all but broke and desperate to travel.
  • Seventy two, Maureen and I were living in London.
  • We set out to have a trip around the world.
  • We bought an old car.
  • We thought we'll drive it as far as it goes.
  • It went as far as Afghanistan and we sold it in Afghanistan for a small profit and carried on and eventually got to Bali with no money left at all.
  • The couple hitched a ride on an old boat in Bali.
  • My first foot in Australia was in Exmouth, WA.
  • Hitchhiked across to, down to Perth, first of all, across the Nullarbor to Sydney, and Maureen and I arrived in Sydney just after Christmas, seventy two, with twenty seven cents left.
  • That was it.
  • Twenty seven cents.
  • Yeah, it wasn't so much, even in those days.
  • Times were tough, but so were they.
  • The inspiration was our own experience.
  • You know, we were short of information.
  • You didn't know what to do next.
  • You didn't know where to go.
  • You didn't know if there was going to be a bus or a train or a boat or whatever from the next town.
  • So the idea was we would provide the information that we hadn't been able to find.
  • And it proved to be a really good idea.
  • Do you know it's the Lonely Planet's birthday?
  • It's fifty years old.
  • Fifty years.
  • Fantastic.
  • Happy birthday to Lonely Planet.
  • That's fantastic.
  • Over the road butcher Leo Donati has used the Lonely Planet in eight countries.
  • Have you struck any snags?
  • Not a one.
  • Not one wrong turn, not one problem.
  • I've done the Trans Siberian across Russia, I've been to St Petersburg, I've been to Ukraine.
  • Except now the couple do it in style.
  • Ten years ago, they sold the Lonely Planet operation to the BBC in London for one hundred million dollars.
  • They still travel, they still use their own books, and they still love it.
  • These days, it's not buses and bicycles, it's business class.
  • If you're doing it because you love to do it, it'll be fun.
  • You'll enjoy it.
  • And if you make money, that's a bonus, and if you don't, well, at least you've had fun.
  • I too am a lonely planet aficionado.
  • It's propelled me around the world, toughing it out in Tuscany, poncing around Portugal, and if you need a chiropractor in India.
  • And trust me, you'll never be lonely on this planet once you meet Luca in Siena.
  • Very happy.
  • If you're starting an adventure, here's Tony's top tips.
  • The first thing is don't lose your passport, but have enough money.
  • You know, I say just carry a carry on, but the secret to packing is see what you've packed and then take half of it out and then take twice as much money.
  • Now, Caroline, what are these lonely planets here?
  • Well, these are the New Testament, because they provide the inspiration of where we're going to go next.
  • So... What's in there?
  • We've chosen a ride in here that's in Italy next year.
  • So next September, we're going to Lake Como.
  • And then in here, I've chosen a fantastic walk in Portugal.
  • OK.
  • Well, thanks, mate.
  • Appreciate that.
  • And happy travels.
  • Oh, look, you need to travel more.
  • Learn how to fold a map, please.
