Book Spotlight - Around the World in 80 Tales by Dave Tomlinson

Around the World in 80 Tales: A fascinating short story collection of backpacking adventures and budget travel memoirs. - Dave Tomlinson
Around the World in 80 Tales by Dave Tomlinson 
 
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TALES
80 Stories, 25 Countries, 5 Continents, One Heck of a Ride!
 
Travel is an amazing experience and I’ve spent years of my life living out of my backpack. I’ve explored well-beaten tourist trails and to far corners beyond them. Each journey is an adventure and each adventure gives with a story to tell. So one day I decided that yes, I would write 80 of my best Travel Stories.
 
After leaving me speechless, travel then turned me into a storyteller!
 
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TALES is:
 
TRUTHFUL: Firstly and perhaps most importantly, when you read a travel story, you want it to be genuine. You don’t want to read some fictional account of something that never happened written by someone who’s never been there! All my stories are completely true and related exactly as they happened. Nothing in my book has been contrived or exaggerated.
 
CONCISE: Each of my stories have been intentionally edited to 500 words that all fit neatly onto one page. This has often meant making every word count! The result is that you can enjoy each adventure without having to read any unnecessary diction.
 
VIBRANT: While many travel books are only text, Around the World in 80 Tales is packed with colour photos. With the exception of only a few, they are all photos are my own photography or taken on my own camera. All the images have an explanatory caption with them.
 
INFORMATIVE: You want a travel story to be entertaining right? And it would be also nice if you could learn about different places too? Around the World in 80 Tales provides exactly that, page after page! Aside from relating my personal experiences, I’ve also included numerous relevant facts and historical information.
 
DIVERSE: My stories have been rearranged from the original order they were written in. This was done to create a fascinating journey through a diverse range of travel situations and activities. As the pages turn, you’ll be taken on adventures such as snorkelling in Malaysia to hiking in Nepal and camel riding in Morocco. Enjoy the ride!

A FINAL WORD
I’ve found that travel is a kaleidoscope of people, places, events, history, culture, food and fun. Through the pages of my book, I’ll bring it all to life for you. The stories are fascinating, inspiring, amusing and amazing. Some are even a little crazy but collectively they are an insight into the unique adventures of travelling the world on a budget.
