Review this Book

Morgan the Travel

From the Topic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn


‘Morgan the Travel’ is an autobiographical travel memoir tracing over 50 years of globetrotting, much of the time as a Tour Manager escorting groups of adventurous souls around the world. The anecdotes related reflect the myriad of adventures, cultures and colourful people who have crossed Ron’s path and enriched his knowledge and life.

This is also a story of the wonderful influence his family plays on this journey, of the parents, partners, children, Grandchildren and the friends who shared many of Ron’s escapades. It reflects the highs and lows of life and the importance of never giving in.

It helps us understand that we learn every day and it is the journey not the destination which educates us, makes us wiser and ultimately comforts and sustains us.

As to accept we are always learning allows us to have an open heart and mind and to be a more contented person always prepared to listen!

More than anything Morgan the Travel strives to give us hope that we can triumph over adversity whilst having the desire to leave a positive legacy and make the world a better place! Remember every day we all have a choice. Better times will come!

Morgan the Travel - 'From the Topic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn'

Brushes with the law, near death experiences, part of a Guinness world record, this autobiographical travel memoir 'Morgan the Travel' is packed with travel anecdotes, historical facts and stories from his varied life in over 50 years of travelling at home and abroad, many of which as a travel industry professional. Travelling has changed immeasurably since his introduction to the travel world at the tender age of 17.

Close to death on more than one occasion travelling has enhanced his knowledge and cultural understanding of the world we live in. Ron has learned much, not least of which about himself, it is fair to say travel has shaped his life. Come and explore his lifelong safari of discovering the wonderful world we live in.

Ronald D Morgan published his first novel 'Don't bring me Flowers' in 2018. In which Billy Williams embarks on an odyssey into the mysterious wartime past of his late father, bringing surprising consequences.

Billy's quest for the truth leads him all over the world from the home countries of Wales and Scotland to South East Asia, Australia, and Japan, where he unearths heart-wrenching stories of bravery, sacrifice, love and survival during World War II in Southeast Asia.

It's a roller coaster of discovery, new relationships and leads to unimaginable changes in Billy's life. This thought-provoking and dramatic tale is available in E-book and paperback on the Amazon store.

In 2019 the author's first children's book 'A Christmas MIracle' was published. This heart-warming festive tale is guaranteed to lift the spirits. Set in the 1930s in a South Walian hill village it tells the tale of a heroic act and the wonderful community efforts of two small boys Dennis and Roy and their faithful dog Lucky! Available on Etsy

Ron is currently working on a few literary projects including his second novel, another historical fiction offering based around present day and world war II and also researching the biography of an enigmatic lady who worked for the Special Operations executive in Cairo during WWII.

Recently Ron has written a series of children's stories based on the wonderful canine duo of Toggle the steady and true black labrador and her sidekick Tarka the adventurous cocker spaniel. It is hoped the first book in the series of The Adventures of Toggle and Tarka will be published around Christmas 2021

Inspiring, informative, funny, entertaining and at times brutally honest. I loved Morgan the Travel. Ron Morgan’s sheer vitality and determination to follow his dreams and make the most of his life is a revelation. If you want to be inspired, plan a holiday or just have a good read this book is a must.

A must read! Ron Morgan’s autobiographical novel takes the reader on a journey across the globe, painting a picture of the many different places that he has visited and the interesting people that he has met during his lengthy career in the travel industry. This is more than a globetrotting trip though - Ron’s story is a tale of the ups and downs of a life well-lived, putting things into perspective. Not to be missed by anyone who enjoys emotional rollercoasters - Ron is an artist who paints pictures with his words. What a life!

A fantastic and informative read, I've really enjoyed it. Some of the stories brought back great memories of my own travels to those places, and others have inspired me to want to visit all these new destinations, and reminded me of my own love for travel.

Ron shares his personal back-catalogue of incredible journeys to far-flung places and through life itself. Descriptive, evocative, and always authentic he has a knack of taking you with him whether soaking up the smells and sounds of his beloved Indian subcontinent, or navigating his way through the more sobering challenges of his health.
Loves shines through – Ron’s love for travel, adventure, and family… and of course his love for his soulmate Dianne.
He makes no excuses, seeks no pity, and dishes out no blame – he takes the rough with the smooth and seems happy to accept whatever life throws at him, as long as it writes a good story… and he has certainly done that! I took this book on holiday, and simply couldn’t put it down. A cracking read!

by Andy La Gette

Morgan the Travel, otherwise known as Ronald Dennis Morgan, is a wonderful teller of tales, who takes us on a memorable "magic carpet ride" of places, people and events, in his book of global adventures and escapades.
His joy of writing fills every page, and his joie de vivre is truly infectious.
An absolute must for every bookshelf.

by Isobel Joan Stone

Having had so many planned holidays cancelled due to covid, I was looking for some inspiration to start me planning holidays again.
This book looked interesting and I thought it might just help me when I feel safe to travel again.
It is not just a travel journal it follows you through Ronald's interesting life of how he got into the travel industry and how it developed.
It is sort of two books in one where we follow his cancer and personal life to also following all his tours around the world with some interesting and funny anecdotes.
Ronald's out look on life is inspirational and anyone going through cancer would find excellent words of help and encouragement. In fact I have recommended this book to a friend suffering breast cancer.
I loved his journey through Tibet and Bhutan, maybe that is where I should travel to next.
It is easy to get completely engrossed with this book and I can highly recommend it.
