Synopsis

The global suitcase by Mary J. Dinan

Global Suitcase is a compilation of interviews with everyday people and well-known personalities who have travelled extraordinary journeys or lived unusual lives, often guided by a cause, in the name of work, or in pursuit of adventure. The author recounts in vivid and colourful detail a snapshot of each of their adventures as well as plenty of humorous anecdotes, before describing and presenting each interview. Many people within the pages have risked their lives for a cause or found a new cause through their travels. Many participants showed great strength of character during amazing and dangerous journeys, displaying courage beyond understanding. All of them have learned much about the world and share their philosophies with us. Each interview focuses on the precious and timeless memories each has of their journey. This unique celebration of travel and nostalgia includes Michael Palin-actor/author; Ardal O'Hanlon-actor from the Father Ted series; Jonathan Dimbleby-BBC; Geoff Hill-author; Simon Reeve-BBC; Chris P Baker-author; Dervla Murphy-travel author; exclusive interview Michael Palin's personal cameraman Nigel Meakin; Daniel O'Donnell- singer; Carol Drinkwater-author and actress; and adventurer Marianne Du Toit.
