Inspiring travel writing and thoughts on much more – couldn’t put it down! I loved this book.

A top notch read for anyone who travels or dreams of travel A fascinating and illuminating read, especially for someone who hasn’t travelled as much as they would have liked, but is full of wonder for all the places the world has to offer.
