AVAILABLE AUTUMN 2021
After I visited my last country to complete "193", I decided to write a book about some of the most memorable adventures I had down the road. Meanwhile, I continued travelling, so for several years, the book remained a project that was left unfinished. Then, the Covid pandemic struck, and I found myself locked down most of the time. It was the perfect setting to pick up my writing and focus on finishing it - and translate it into English. It was very hard work, and I am super proud with the end result.
From the blurb: "Within its sixteen stories, The Long Road to Cullaville takes you to Yemen, Congo, Nauru and Afghanistan, amongst other places. Thanks to his rich descriptions, the author shows you what it’s like to travel in unusual countries. His stories are compelling and entertaining, breathtaking and moving. Meanwhile, he makes you think about the risks of travel and the pre-eminent influence of fate.
The long road to Cullaville is primarily intended for those who love to travel and who may well be planning to visit all the countries in the world themselves. It’s also recommended for those who are curious about unusual destinations and rather read about them. One thing is certain: this book will definitely make you look at the world differently."
I am confident that you will love The long road to Cullaville. Click the cover image to read the full preface and introduction, and fragments of all chapters. Obviously, you can order the book through the website. It is available in both English and Dutch.
