Armchair travellers this is one for you – not quite around the world in 80 days but close to it. Thirty –six travel writers have clubbed together to present thirty-six travel stories to help raise much needed funds for Oxfam and in doing so have created some unforgettable stories about and from unforgettable people around the world.

From Antarctica to Russia, Sumatra to the Spain and so many places In between the stories reach out and touch the heart and come from a collection of literally hundreds of stories these well-known writers have penned over the years.

 

Some are short – very short and some a lot longer, but all are totally entertaining in every respect.  All are personal and all are there to show you that life does go on in spite of incredible odds and that people have the most resilient of spirits.

It is an anthology of travel and it is a travel anthology which leaves you all the richer for the experience.
