It’s the job of his dreams. Get paid to travel and write about it.

Only no one told Jules that it would mean eating oily seabirds, repeatedly falling off a husky sled, getting stranded on a Mediterranean island, and crash-landing in Iran.

Previously published as Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield).

You’d think a long-time travel writer would have some great travel tips. You’d think.

Jules learns about travel the hard way, whether it’s setting out on his first European hitch-hiking adventure, writing about offbeat destinations for Rough Guides, or braving the shouty waiters of Naples on the hunt for the world’s best pizza.

“Left at 11am to go pirate-hunting.” Wait, what?

When Jules reads his grandfather’s diary, he discovers he’s not the first in his family with travel stories to tell.

Looking for his own adventures, Jules crosses continents while learning the ropes as a Rough Guide writer. And because travel is unpredictable, there’s no knowing what his next trip will bring.

What they say

Jules’ travel writing is funny, inspiring, quirky and always engaging. His blog is great but reading the cream of his travels in book form is even more fun.  Mark Ellingham, founder of Rough Guides & publisher of ‘Driving over Lemons’

Jules has a rare observational talent. These short travel tales are really very good – passionate, engaging and entertaining. Phil Ascough, journalist, author, media/PR consultant

The best kind of travel companion – funny, informed and always up for an adventure. Read this book! Martin Dunford, Rough Guides founder & Cool Places publisher

A fascinating and hilarious collection of stories from a brilliant story teller. Amazon review

Instantly engaging snapshots from thirty years of travelling and writing . . . I wanted more! Highly recommended. Amazon review

A new genre may have been born . . . A touching combination of tribute, travelogue, anecdote and high jinx packed with new ideas, top tips and messages for the unsuspecting. Amazon review

Where’s my passport? I need to go there! Not so much a series of beautifully observed snapshots as lovingly created miniature paintings. Sensitive, informative, funny and personal touches in each destination. Amazon review

I just love this man’s work and have been a fan for many years. Here we are with another travel gem to take you off around the world and get lost among the wit and banter . . . simply wonderful. Amazon review

I thought this was a great book – it’s really funny at times, sort of like a Bill Bryson book, full of misadventures and misunderstandings. Amazon review
