#Writer’sTravelogueSeries – Is A Picture Worth 1000 Words?

This is the third post in my regular #Writer’sTravelogueSeries on Marcia Meara’s The Write Stuff blog,

In my last post, 10 Tips for Keeping A Travel Journal (Without It Taking Over Your Trip), I touched on the concept of writing with all five senses.

This time, I investigate whether a picture is worth 1000 words.

Award Winning Children’s Book – It’s A Stray Dog’s Life

I am delighted to share this wonderful interview with Maximilian Sam, award-winning author of It’s A Stray Dog’s Life and It’s a Stray dog’s Life 2.

The interview first appeared on the excellent blog Sue’s Musings.

Maximilian was determined that his books should be as enjoyable for parents as they are for children, and won the Best Comedy Book category at the Feed My Reads Awards.

Maximilian lives on the west coast of Turkey with an army of stray dogs and cats, so he has certainly stuck to the premise of ‘write what you know’!

With Christmas coming up, I thought these would make lovely presents for all dog lovers great and small!

Stray dogs are a subject close to our hearts. We rescued a stray in Romania: his story is featured in my book Dogs ‘n’ Dracula – A Road Trip Through Romania and in Robert Fear’s anthology 40 Life Changing Events.

We have come accross many animals in need on our travels, and try to help out where we can. If you’re interested in helping too, see my post Animal Charities and Volunteering in Albania.

Come with us on our travels!

Albania Overland – Bashtovë Fortress and Beautiful Berat

On our last night at Buona Vila, we shared whisky, raki, and stories. Like so many countries we’d been warned not to visit, Albania was already revealing itself as a jewel. Lido, Spartak, and Ayesha had welcomed us like family at their wonderful beachside retreat, and we were reluctant to leave, but such is the nature of a nomad lifestyle. It’s heavy on fleeting friendships, and fond farewells, followed by the relentless quest for something which might be even better.

Travel Memoir Book Review – It Never Rains But It Paws

I was rather chuffed to get this wonderful review from author Alison Williams, who read my book because she is planning to retire, buy a campervan and hit the road with four dogs…

I am relieved and delighted to hear my book about the realities of RV life:

“…certainly hasn’t put me off my dream!”
