For Beirut-based journalist and regular DestinAsian contributor Warren Singh-Bartlett, a brief sightseeing jaunt in Lebanon during the 1990s eventually blossomed into a love affair that has lasted nearly two decades. His new book, Getting Lost in Lebanon, details 156 of his personal discoveries made while exploring the small but complex Mediterranean country on foot. The majority of Singh-Bartlett’s photos and stories were initially posted on Instagram, giving followers a window into the beauty of his adopted home. All told, they reflect Lebanon’s kaleidoscope of peoples, historic architecture, and jaw-dropping landscapes packed into an area barely twice the size of Bali.
