About Turning Left Around the World
My review of Turning Left Around the World
Turning Left Around the World allows you to go on an epic journey without leaving your armchair. It's part guidebook, part memoir and simply an immersing and interesting read. If you love to travel, or read about those countries you've always dreamed of visiting, then you'll enjoy this book.
The book is divided into different sections, with each section devoted to a country that David and Helene visited. It's in an easy to read and enjoyable format, and what's more, a host of wonderful photographs accompany each chapter, so you get to see where they visited, helping to enhance what you read.
I love these type of travel guides that share the nitty gritty realities of travelling. Nothing is left unsaid and I really did feel as if I was on the journey with them. We get to read the conversations between them as they work out where to go and what to do. I loved this insight. But for me, it was those little gems that they shared, that only someone who had visited a country and immersed themselves in the culture could possibly know, these moments were truly special.
I read this book from beginning to end, so I followed their chronological journey, but you could also easily dip in and out of his book, focusing on your favourite places to visit. It's a book that can be used as an insightful travel guide, or as I did, to simply learn more about a country's culture and everyday life. It's a remarkable story about a couple who refused to wear those slippers after retirement. It's a lovely read.
With thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on the blog tour, and to the publisher for a paperback copy for review purposes.
