Travel Tales from Exotic Places

Read stories like this one in my book, Travel Tales from Exotic Places

Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is the oldest known temple in the world, dating back at least 9,000 years. This place will cause historians to rewrite history – would hunter-gatherers really know how to build walls, raise stone monoliths, and lay down waterproof floors?

In Istanbul a waiter at a restaurant in a former mosque quietly assured me that I wouldn’t like the turnip juice at his establishment because of where I came from.

At the other end of the Mediterranean, I travel to see the world’s finest footballer play in front of his home crowd and I am rewarded by seeing him score a sumptuous free-kick.

In other words, there’s somewhere for everyone. This is a combination of a travel guide and a travel diary and people will discover at least one place they’d like to visit themselves.

Travel never ceases to amaze me. Places recently unearthed will rewrite our history, people I meet provide me with a view of myself I’d never appreciated, and performers show me how to play a game in a manner I could only dream about.

Bio: I am a writer. I love writing about the places I have travelled to and providing my thoughts on these places. A list of my books, both about travel and other subjects, can be found here.
