Join the author, his partner and their little dog on a grand tour of Scotland in a classic T2 VW Campervan. From a monster hunting trip on Loch Ness, a journey inside a hollow mountain and a wander round the streets of Edinburgh, the tour covers a number of popular attractions but also takes in a few places not on the usual tourist itinerary, including:

An abandoned family theme park where the crowds are long gone, grass grows unchecked and rollercoasters slowly rust in the permadrizzle; a decaying, crumbling mental asylum no longer in use; an isolated house with an enormous concrete pineapple where the roof should be.  Throw in a tour of the lonely roads of Skye and a look at Eilean Donan Castle, the William Wallace Monument, the Glenfinnan Monument at Loch Shiel and the amazing Falkirk Wheel and you have a trip where the wonders of Scotland are revealed in all their glory.


Two friends embark upon an expedition through France, cycling from Cherbourg to Perpignan. Over the course of almost 1500 kilometres, they battle through the relentless heat and encounter vampire flies, angry restaurant proprietors and a host of European characters that have made France their playground for the Summer.  Along the way, they also contend with a rapidly diminishing cash supply, numerous dodgy camp sites and encounters with various French nutters. They are also forced to deal with perhaps the most difficult obstacle of all - each other!

A test of friendship and endurance, ‘Cycles, Tents and Two Young Gents’ puts you right alongside the hardy adventurers as they complete their gruelling journey – the only difference is you won’t finish the expedition with saddle sores and an empty bank account!


A three month odyssey through the United States of America and Canada, covering more than 12,000 miles by car, train, ferry, snowmobile and inflatable tubes. Join the author (and his long-suffering girlfriend) on their spectacular adventure of a lifetime as they:

Cross Canada by VIA Rail! Snowmobile in the Rocky Mountains! Take in the strip joints of New Orleans!  Attend an Ultimate Fighting Championship event in Las Vegas! Sleep in an Ice Hotel! Challenge the authority of Disney World despots!  Get chased out of Georgia by murderous locals!

From the safety of your armchair, read about their adventures in New York, San Francisco, the Redwood forests, the Grand Canyon, Big Sur, Niagara Falls, Florida Keys..... the list is almost endless! The perfect book for anybody thinking of visiting North America.


A one-of-a-kind experimental partly fictitious travel book that takes readers on an invigorating campervan tour of the south coast of England from the comfort of their own armchairs. 

Join the author and his long suffering partner on a journey filled with mishap that begins to whittle away their body parts and sees them becoming addicted to pain relief medication bought from local drug dealers! See their angelic little dog turn into a bloodthirsty monster with an insatiable appetite for human flesh!

Warning!  This is not a straight forward travel book as the others are above - you will find it either hilarious or one of the worst books ever written (there doesn't seem to be much middle ground on this one).
