About the Book

Travel is a subject of universal interest. It is in the neighborhood of impossible to find anyone who doesn’t want to travel and in most cases more than they have had the opportunity, or more importantly, the cash to do so. I too felt a constant obsession throughout a good part of my life to experience new places, new sights, new sounds, new smells, new tastes, new almost anything. I think I can say that I come by the travel bug honestly. My zodiac sign is Sagittarius and by the Chinese calendar I am a horse. Both have wanderlust bred in the bone. My first journey happened at the age of eleven when I accompanied my grandparents to England, land of their birth and my mother’s too. My little tale includes more contemporary experiences living and working in Nairobi, Paris, Edinburgh, London and China as well as trips throughout Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East. My intent is to be descriptive and not confessional as I wander back through my memory. I mean to offer a fun and lighthearted recounting of events and not a baring of the soul. I hope, dear Reader you find your time well spent.
