Description

These forty personal stories collected from a lifetime of travel will transport you from country to country across the world in an immersive reading experience.

Spanning many countries and many years, each tale is brought back to life in a careful reconstruction of time, place and personal encounter using the fragments of memory that we all take away from our most treasured travel experiences.

Contains some stories previously published in Julie Watson’s first collection of travel writing published by Beachy Books in 2021 – Travel Mementos: Personal Stories about Faraway Places

Flavour of writing inside:

‘I set off towards the railway station to find a train to take me northwards to the capital but turning a corner, I come to an abrupt standstill. A large military tank is occupying the middle of the road, with the barrel of its gun pointing straight at me. There is no sign of anyone inside the vehicle although I strongly sense that I am being watched. Uncertain what to do, and slightly fearful that the tank turret and gun will swivel to follow me, I decide to continue walking, clutching my small suitcase defensively at my side.’
