Treading Lightly is a collection of travel stories, some previously published in various forms in newspapers and magazines such as The Independent, Wanderlust, TNT and The Lady, among others, while the rest are published for the first time.
Join me as I canoe to Angel Falls, track down pink dolphins in Hong Kong, get up hideously early to feed elephants in Thailand, encounter the goddess of fire in Hawaii, and follow in the footsteps of James Joyce in Trieste. Treading Lightly recounts these and other adventures in 17 travel pieces that add up to 21,000 words.
I’ve even received my first review, and it’s making me blush.
“Well written, illuminating, witty and touching, this is a highly recommended read for those who simply wish to travel from their armchair or for those looking for inspiration for an adventure of their own.” Natasha Sheldon, author of ‘Discovering Pompeii’
