Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield)

AMAZON REVIEWERS give it 5 out of 5 stars!

Born in Ghana, raised in Yorkshire, and sent around the world by Rough Guides, Jules is not your usual travel writer.

In 35 traveller’s tales Jules mushes huskies, searches for the Loch Ness monster, learns to cook rice in Hong Kong, and delivers the mail in New Zealand. He also gets stranded on a Mediterranean island, which is mostly his fault, and eats a puffin, which definitely isn’t.

A fascinating and hilarious collection from a brilliant storyteller.

JAR, Amazon review

This was really good . . . I recommend it if you like the Bill Bryson type of travel book.

Not Cool: Europe by Train in a Heatwave

9 cities, 9 countries, 9 days, 1 ridiculously hot summer. What could possibly go wrong?

The latest travel memoir by Jules Brown is a hot and steamy adventure (no, not that kind) by rail across Europe, taking in Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Liechtenstein, Zürich and Milan.

Like having a friend telling you of their travel adventures, highlighting both funny stories and disasters.

Lisa, Amazon review

Jules writes in a thoroughly engaging way with warmth and humour that makes every chapter a little delight.

Montenegro is an amazing place and Jules has really nailed it with this guide. You’d be mad to leave home without it!
