'First Overland: London-Singapore by Land Rover'This month the Silver Travel Book Club – proudly sponsored by Emerald Waterways – is rather excitingly about more than just reading a book.

Back in 1955, some Oxford & Cambridge undergraduates jumped into two new Land Rovers and completed the first overland journey from the English Channel to Singapore. Seven months, 12,000 miles, rivers, jungles, mountains and too few roads. A remarkable expedition and achievement, where many had previously failed.

Tim Slessor was in that 1955 team and his book First Overland: London-Singapore by Land Rover has recently been republished, with a foreword by Sir David Attenborough.

And now Tim has combined forces with Alex Bescoby (from Grammar Productions) and others to return one of those original Land Rovers from Singapore to London. Sponsors of this exciting expedition include our friends at the Singapore Tourist Board. The team departed on August 25th and watch this space for updates on their journey across a challenging landscape which has changed dramatically over the last 60 years.

Watch a trailer of the Last Overland expedition and read more about the route and the team – which includes Tim’s grandson Nat.

Thinking on My Feet by Kate HumbleThis month the Silver Travel Book Club – proudly sponsored by Emerald Waterways – will be all about Kate Humble’s inspiring Thinking on My Feet: the small joy of putting one foot in front of another.

Thinking on My Feet tells the story of Kate's walking year - shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate's inspiring narrative not only records her walks (and runs) throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions throughout - capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows - and shares the outcomes: a problem solved, a mood lifted, an idea or opportunity borne. As she explores the reasons why we walk, whether for creative energy, challenge and pleasure, or therapeutic benefits, Kate's reflections and insights will encourage, motivate and spur readers into action.

Skipping Christmas by John GrishamThis festive month the Silver Travel Book Club is reading Skipping Christmas by John Grisham. Yes, the same John Grisham who usually writes fast-paced novels with a legal twist.

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded shopping centres, no cheesy office parties, no crackers, no unwanted presents. That’s just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they’ll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on Hemlock Street without a Santa on the roof, they won’t be hosting their annual Christmas Eve party, they aren’t even going to have a Christmas tree.

A classic morality tale for modern times, Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.

From the crisp cold of January, through the promise of spring and the heat of summer, and then into damp autumn and the chill winds of winter, we accompany the forest ranger as he goes about his work - stalking in the early morning darkness, putting an injured fallow buck out of its misery, watching stoats kill a hare, observing owls, and simply being a part of the outdoors.

The Talented Mr RipleyThis month Andrew is reading The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Written by Patricia Highsmith in 1955, this is a stylish psychological thriller and the author's first outing for Tom Ripley. Four more followed and the series has collectively become known as the Ripliad. But the original remains the best known, partly no doubt because of the hugely successful 1999 film adaptation, starring Matt Damon, Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Into the Water by Paula HawkinsThis month Andrew is reading Into the Water by Paula Hawkins, the much anticipated follow up to her 2015 blockbuster debut The Girl on the Train.

Based in the imaginary town of Beckford, in rural Northumberland, Paula describes her new novel as “a psychological suspense novel centred on the fractured relationship between two sisters, Nel and Jules. When Nel dies unexpectedly, Jules finds herself trying to figure out not just what has happened to her elder sister, but what has happened between the two of them to leave them so estranged. This is a book of many mysteries. It is about searching for answers, for meaning.”

Into The Water is a very different read to the Silver Travel Book Club’s first Book of the Month – Rosanna Ley’s The Little Theatre by the Sea – in terms of genre, complexity and location!

Andrew's Book of the Month for May 2017

Rosanna Ley - The Little Theatre by the SeaIn May, Andrew was reading Rosanna Ley's latest novel The Little Theatre by the Sea. The author whisks you off to sunny Sardinia, with an enchanting tale of intrigue and romance, whilst immersed in local food, wine and culture. And travelling with Silver Travel Advisor partner Sardatur Holidays, Andrew is planning to visit sunny Sardinia to follow in the footsteps of Rosanna's principal character, interior designer Faye.  

He will visit the real town that becomes fictional Deriu in the novel, the location of the mystery-laden Little Theatre by the Sea. He'll visit the walled Catalan city of Alghero, which Faye explores with her father on a road-trip while they both mark time at important times in their lives. And he'll force himself to try some of the Sardinian food and wine that Faye enjoys whilst working on the historic theatre.

Read all about Andrew’s trip to Sardinia in search of Faye.

    @Claire_S - where did you spend your disappointing weekend break in Sardinia? What a shame! It's such a beautiful island with a rich history and multiple influences, you really must go back. I've been to Alghero, a really interesting Catalan port on the west coast - with incredible food - but I'm really looking forward to exploring more places in Sardinia, in the footsteps of the book's character, and reporting back to Silver Travellers. Hopefully, I'll have some ideas to help give you a better experience next time...

    @Riversiderouge - I haven't read The Island yet, but I can imagine a trip to Spinalonga Island would be a very moving experience. Victoria Hislop does vast research for her books, and captures places and history really well, doesn't she? I loved learning about Thessaloniki's tumultuous history through her characters in The Thread. I don't think she has strayed far from Greece in her novels yet, but perhaps she might one day...

    The only time I went to Sardinia was for a weekend break which turned out to be extremely disappointing, so it would be great to discover Sardinia through this book - it might inspire us to try again!

    I enjoyed reading "The Island" by Victoria Hislop, based on the Leper Colony on Spinalonga Island in Crete.

    Thanks for the encouraging feedback @Geoff....we hope plenty of others love the Silver Travel Book Club too!

    Did you enjoy Thessaloniki? A friend lent me The Thread before going there, and it really helped us to understand the city's history better. I even tweeted Victoria Hislop when we were there, to ask where one of the churches in the book were.

    The essence of TripFiction and exactly why we set up the Silver Travel Book Club.
  • Geoff

    Just a brilliant idea. It is great to get a sense of a place when you're preparing for a trip, and even more fun to identify the places once you're there. I've done that with a couple of Victoria Hislop's books, The Thread particularly.
    Looking forward to reading more and getting the recommendations.
    Enjoy Sardinia.

    Well...are we right about Silver Travellers loving books as much as travel?

    Welcome to the first adventure for the Silver Travel Book Club.

    Rosanna Ley's The Little Theatre by the Sea takes us to Sardinia, where newly qualified interior designer Faye is hired to restore the beautiful - but sadly now crumbling - old theatre in Deriu. It turns out to hold some rather interesting secrets...

    Where have you been in Sardinia, and what captivated you most? The two best entries on this forum thread will each win a hardback copy of the book, and we can follow in Faye's Sardinian footsteps together.

    Looking forward to loads more adventures with you and the Silver Travel Book Club. Where would you like to go next?

    Andrew
