Today I’m happy to introduce a newly published book – a travel adventure that I’m sure will be of interest to lots of would be travellers and those who haven’t been able to get away this year due to covid-19.
First, here’s a few words from debut author Dawn East about what inspired her to write and publish Heading East (great title btw).
‘Before I went on a one year sabbatical around Asia, Australia and Eastern Europe, I thought I’d write a blog about my travels to let my family and friends know what I was up to. However, it soon turned into something much bigger and I found myself writing for hours about each place I visited. My friends loved it so I kept writing.
This book is all of my blog posts combined into one and covers the honest ups and downs of solo travel as an older female traveller. From sad histories to funny anecdotes, there is something for everyone. If you’re tempted to follow in my footsteps then I’ve included a helpful Q&A at the end. I hope you enjoy following my adventures.‘
The very thought of home ownership and settling down was enough to send Dawn East running for the hills – otherwise known as the Trans-Mongolian Train, where her adventures across Asia, Australia and Eastern Europe would begin. But how would a self-confessed fussy eater, who worries about everything from bag-snatchers to parasitic skin infections, cope with a year of strange foods, noisy dorms and leaving behind a blossoming relationship?
Join Dawn, a forty-year-old primary school teacher, on her one year sabbatical as she navigates her way through twenty-six different countries.
You can see the book on Amazon.
Thanks for stopping by. If you do pick up a copy of Heading East, please consider leaving a review to help out a debut indie author. (Dawn is not on social media, but if you have any comments for her I can pass them on.)
