Into adventure and sunshine.
Available to pre-order as a paperback, with a kindle edition to follow, Into adventure and sunshine is a journey seven decades in the making. This epic five month, 1,000 mile (1,600 km) overland journey sees Ian head behind the lines of World War Two. Following in the footsteps of his great uncle, conscripted into the Corps of Royal Engineers at the beginning of the conflict, Ian crosses through the political hotspots of Algeria and Tunisia in North Africa, before travelling up much of the length of the Italian peninsula, from Naples to beyond the Austrian border. In doing so he uncovers a unique window into the Mediterranean’s most – and least – visited destinations, as well as the forgotten stories of men and women, soldier and civilian, no longer here to tell their own astonishing tales.
