Lines of the Times

“… destined to become a classic and a sought-after book in charity shops, long after you have dipped in and out of the twenty six chapters.” … a literary critic Always the flâneur, Martin takes us through his wanderings (and wonderings!) over four decades of world travel. An inveterate explorer of the world’s tapas bars and cafes, and finding more of interest in a wine and a beach than a museum or cathedral, he shares the thoughts and writings that have shaped his travel life and provides a road map for us all to enjoy on our own journey. If you have little or no interest in package tours, duty free, bourgeois hotels, Pacific cruises and the like, the snippets and vignettes here may just resonate a little.
