Turn Right at the Pink Shirt
Turn Right at the Pink Shirt is as quirky as its title. Every story is different. In this unique collection of traveller’s tales, the author takes the reader on an unforgettable journey to the far reaches of the globe where she shares her extraordinary insights into the human spirit.
We are transported from the formal gardens of Versailles to the wrong side of the street in Nairobi, Kenya. There is dark humour in the Western Deserts of Egypt when the author’s attempts to dye her hair leave her no option but to shave her head. And there is pathos in Jodhpur, India where the little red hand prints staining the palace walls belong to the Maharajah’s child brides on their way to commit suttee on the funeral pyre.
Told honestly, without judgement, this is a book of thirty-seven short stories in the style of Michael Palin or Bill Bryson. ‘Turn Right at the Pink Shirt’ will entertain and delight all who read it, whether they be travellers or not; and the encounters and personal experiences described by the author will be thought about long after the cover has been closed.
This collection of stories will appeal to ages, from the would-be young backpacker to the experienced tourist. It is inspirational to both the armchair traveller and the novice who is planning a once in a lifetime travel adventure.
