Itchy Feet: Tales of Travel and Adventure, an anthology of travel stories from Alyson Sheldrake

September 18, 2021

I had the privilege of reading this anthology and reviewing the stories before publication and have to say it is a wonderful collection. Each of the twenty chapters is written by a different writer, and almost all of them have been previously published either as memoir authors or as travel writers. Many of the stories deal with how and why the authors gained their itchy feet, while others focus on a specific travel adventure.

Whichever the case, the reader is in for a treat. From South Africa to South America, from Japan to Egypt and everywhere in between, these stories will open your eyes to a whole range of travel experiences, including boat trips up the Nile; between islands in the Philippines and Thailand; on a barge across the North Sea and Atlantic crossings on a famous cruise liner. But there are also overland adventures ranging from Alaska to Rwanda and Nepal, as well as right across South Africa during the pandemic lockdown. If your feet are itching but you can’t roam free, this collection of adventures will be the salve you need.

The book has been thoughtfully collated, finely edited and beautifully presented by Alyson Sheldrake, whose memoirs about her life in Portugal have achieved Amazon bestseller status.

The link to the ebook on Amazon US is here, but it’s available for pre-order on all Amazon market places and is due for release on 26 September.

    • Good for you, Cath! I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts. I have some particular favourites, but I’m not going to say which they are…not yet, anyway 🙂
