Gullible’s Travels

Gullible’s Travels

John Carter

Bradt Travel Guides. Ltd,

ISBN: 978.1 78477 032.7

Anyone who liked to watch TV travel programmes ‘back in the day’ will be familiar with the name of John Carter. Here, he takes a look back at his exploits over the past six decades, both as a travel broadcaster and a ‘private citizen’. He uses a breezy, informal style in a series of easy-to-read short stories, detailing his exploits … not always favourable to him.

I’m particularly interested in his take on a number of popular resorts back in the 60s, ‘before the tourists came’; the Algarve and the Costa Smeralda in particular. And, of course, the people he met on the way.

This is a book to read from cover to cover once, then keep it on your bedside table, to dip into from time to time, and read a random chapter of two, as you like.
