This is not a travel guide and it does not offer definitive advice about where to stay etc. It is simply an honest, realistic account of my adventures as a relatively experienced traveller. Since developing the travelling bug, I have driven across Canada, dived the oceans of Indonesia and the Middle East, been to Australia, New Zealand etc.
An account of a fascinating trip which consisted of so much more than learning about ancient civilisations such as the Aztecs, Zapotecs and Mayans and visiting the remains of their once great cities. Travelling by coach, visiting a remote site by five-seater aeroplane or travelling upriver by boat, the journey itself was part of the adventure.
An enlightening book tracing the author’s career in the Humber fishing fleet between the wars and the profound changes in the fishing industry. Ernest worked from Kingston upon Hull in several vessels like the Thomas Hardy and the Cape Barfleur. Enduring the hardships of year-round deep sea fishing in the North Sea and off Iceland and Greenland.
The true life story of the author’s two dachshunds and their travels in Africa and Europe. A light hearted book that any dog lover will emphasise with and a must for anyone who has ever owned a dachshund.
