“I would like readers to feel that they are there with me in the narrative present as I retell the stories, soaking up the atmosphere, immersed in the place, culture or personal encounter, and experiencing what I experienced. To this end, I am trying to recreate an evocative reading experience from which I hope the reader can take away an interesting and thought-provoking armchair travel experience too.”

Julie Watson will be signing copies at a free book launch event at Waterstones Newport on 1st April 2023 from 11:00 to 15:00 where you can talk to Julie about her experiences and buy a book.

Travel Takeaways: Around the World in Forty Tales is published by Beachy Books and priced at £9.99. For more information, visit https://beachybooks.com/bookshop/travel-takeaways.
