Description

With his trademark charm and sharp wit, Newby leaves no stone unturned in his quest for wonderfully detailed and quirky knowledge to share with his reader.

Insightful, hilarious and sheer fun, this is an adventure not to be missed, by Britain’s best-loved travel guide, and father of the genre. ‘Why don’t you start in Naples and go clockwise round the Mediterranean instead of dashing off in all directions like a lunatic?’ Fortunately, Eric Newby followed his wife Wanda’s advice, and so begins the wonderfully madcap adventure, ‘On the Shores of the Mediterranean’. Beginning during the Newbys’ wine harvest in Tuscany, the adventurous but disaster-prone pair follow a path using every form of transportation conceivable (public bus, taxi, foot, bike, boat), from Naples to Venice, along the Adriatic to Greece, Turkey, Jerusalem and North Africa, from sipping wildly extravagant cocktails in San Marco to being cordially invited to Libya by Colonel Gaddafi.
