about

Julian's Journeys is a collection of 34 travel stories. These stories are part memoir, part travelogue, and part revelation about the effect travel has on me. I write stories about the baggage man at Tehran airport who helped me through customs in double-quick time and all for one dollar. I tell the story of the nun at the bus stop in Catania, Sicily, who was incredibly knowledgeable about the local delicacy, mortadella. I describe how I became slowly inebriated in Bulgaria, when one of the locals offered me the opportunity to sample his homemade slivovitz in his garden - all the while we wrote down football results on a piece of paper. I report a conversation I had with a super-smooth carpet-seller in Istanbul, who was always encouraging me to visit his shop. The gentle and quirky comedy of 40 Humourous British Traditions, Julian Worker's previous title, is once more reflected in this travelogue. You will amble around the world with Julian as your guide and you experience a different vision of everywhere from deepest Wales to exotic Istandbul.
