This book should give you something to smile about when you’re at home longing for a little bit of escapism. You can still travel with books like this one.
All the stories are distinct and can be read independently; this is a book for the stay-at-home-traveller who has a spare five or ten minutes to discover the secrets of Vancouver, Cape Town and the Baltic countries, while sitting in their other favourite armchair.
Visit Vancouver and its surrounding areas – go hiking in rain forest twenty minutes from the downtown core, catch the ferry to the Sunshine Coast – you can’t get there by road – and tour Victoria the capital of British Columbia.
Next travel to Cape Town with its colourful history, encapsulated in the ethnically diverse Bo Kaap district. In this part of Cape Town the coloured houses are even more breathtaking than the views of Table Mountain. Read about the conversations you could have in the market in Cape Town’s Greenmarket Square.
Finally, journey to the independent countries of the Baltic and discover the splendid churches of the capitals Tallinn and Riga where the architecture is breathtaking and the number of tourists is still relatively few.
Bio: I am a writer. I love writing creatively especially about subjects such as British traditions, where my made-up traditions are no less ridiculous than the real thing. A list of my books, both fictional and factual (about travel), can be found here.
I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool.
I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017.
My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders.
I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
