Take Me with You: A round the world journey to invite a stranger home by Brad Newsham

Leave a comment

‘Someday, when I am rich, I am going to invite someone from my travels to visit me in America.’
Brad Newsham was a twenty-two-year-old travelling through Afghanistan when he wrote this in his journal. Fourteen years later, he’s a Yellow Taxi driver working in San Francisco. He’s not rich, but he has never forgotten his vow.
Take Me With You is the compelling account of his journey through the Philippines, India, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and South Africa as he searches for the right person – someone who couldn’t afford to leave their own country, let alone holiday in the West. Newsham’s story will change the way you think about your life and the lives of those you meet when you travel.

Down The Nile: Alone In A Fisherman’s Skiff by Rosemary Mahoney

Leave a comment

When Rosemary Mahoney, in 1998, took a solo trip down the Nile in a seven-foot rowboat, she discovered modern Egypt for herself. As a rower, she faced crocodiles and testy river currents; as a female, she confronted deeply-held beliefs about foreign women while cautiously remaining open to genuine friendship; and, as a traveller, she experienced events that ranged from the humorous to the hair-raising – including an encounter that began as one of the most frightening of her life and ended as an edifying and chastening lesson in human nature and cultural misunderstanding.
Whether she’s meeting Nubians and Egyptians, or finding connections to Westerners who travelled up the Nile in earlier times – Florence Nightingale and Gustave Flaubert among them – Mahoney’s informed curiosity about the world never ceases to captivate the reader.
