Book Title: Departures and Arrivals
Desc:

'Whatever else we remember of our travels, we remember our departures and arrivals. Often they are the most enduring of all our memories of them.'From one of Britain's best-loved travel writers comes a fascinating collection of incredible highlights from an eventful life.Acutely observant, with an eye for quirky detail and a wit of charming self-deprecation, Eric Newby has delighted readers with his travels, whether to remote locations or his very own back garden. In this captivating collection of 19 tales, Newby invites the reader to join him as he navigates the globe, from the shops and streets of the pram-vantaged Barnes of yesteryear to a mysterious opal-mining town in Australia, and from the faded glamour of the Orient Express to an elephant fair in India and a cycle ride along the Meridian Line, navigating rivers and ill-placed homes.As a forefather of the modern comic travel book, Newby's insatiable curiosity and infectious enthusiasm have garnered him an incredible following over many decades.
