Don’t Eat the Puffin

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

A joyous book you will read in one sitting.

Never Pack an Ice-Axe

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

I loved it, I’m hooked … can I carry your rucksack next time?

“Left at 11am to go pirate-hunting.”

Wait, what?

Not Cool: Europe by Train in a Heatwave

A laugh-out-loud train journey across Europe with a travel writer who should know better.

Inspired by the budget InterRail trips of his youth, Jules thought he’d try and visit 9 cities in 9 countries in 9 days. Sadly, that wasn’t his only mistake.

It soon turned into a hot and steamy adventure (no, steady on, not that kind) by rail across Europe, taking in Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Liechtenstein, Zürich and Milan.

Travel writing at its very best … I will be a fan from here on.

M.A. Blackburn, Amazon review

Chanced upon this … brilliant and wonderfully funny book.

Your pocket friend to Montenegro. Jules only includes places he has visited and has no paid reviews. And you know what, I trust him.
