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!
