The Geriatric Backpacker - Scott-Reddington
Just finishing this book and, like the others that this author has written, I very, very strongly recommend you to download and read it.
It is one of those very rare books that you really do NOT want to put down, the descriptions of events and places are superb. It covers a journey around parts of India and I almost felt that I was there, and if not, I would love to GO there.
The accurate use of language, coupled with an unerring flow of humour makes this a real pleasure to read. My wife and I have once again, been reading alongside each other in bed, it has however meant a delay of our normal "lights out" time until well after 0100 and even then the switch off is with great reluctance.
If you enjoy a well written account of an obviously very memorable journey, this is the book for you - I have not been in touch with the author to find out how much is true, to me it just seems so well written that it may well ALL be true.......
In these troubled times, take a virtual tour with this as your guidebook - the images formed in your imagination probably exceed those if you were on site - and that is exactly the sort of book we need while we are confined to our homes.
Thank you, please post your comments after you have read it, we can all then arrive at our own conclusions, but I know that I will be actively searching for anything else that this talented author publishes. 😊
Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
