Bradt Travel Guides + Giveaway

posted in: Competitions | 34

Recently Bradt Travel Guides got in touch with me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their books.  I was after something a little different than the usual travel guide and was immediately drawn to their travel literature section.  I wanted something that would inspire me with my travel writing and that would fit into my busy regime.  If I’m honest, I struggle with reading a book from cover to cover these days as my lifestyle just don’t allow for long spells of reading.  I read a lot of blog posts and I also have a favourite magazine that I read regularly for leisure, but it just seems impossible to finish a book these days.


Bradt Guides have lots of great titles in under a huge variety of sections on their website.  They cover country guides, wildlife series and an extensive collection of books on travelling the British Isles.   There is something for every kind of traveller here. 

As a busy, work from home Mum, The Irresponsible Traveller reached out to me on lots of levels.  It certainly bought back memories of a misspent youth but also connected with me because it offered a collection of stories from new and established travel writers sharing their honest experiences of travelling and they scrapes that they found themselves in.

It’s been the perfect book for me as I can pick it up when I have a spare few minutes and read one of the 40 short stories from beginning to end.  It doesn’t matter if I don’t read another story for a week or more, as each story stands alone so I’m not scrabbling around my ageing brain cells to remember the plot line.

Each story is hugely entertaining and has given me a much needed dose of escapism on some rather mundane days at home between sorting the laundry and cooking the dinner.  It’s also been a wonderful introduction to a some very talented travel writers and the lengths they will go to to get a great story.




The Irresponsible Traveller is going to be the perfect book for taking on holiday to our next trip to Costa Dorada and if there’s still some stories left it will be joining me in my hand luggage to Holland when I visit Amsterdam next.  If I’m able to save some of the tales until the festival season, I can see it going down well around the campfire too.
