collette walsh travel book club 3This is my first telly presenting gig and it has been great fun and while I do not claim to be Oprah, the whole team has worked really hard to make it a fab, fun and informative show. (Thanks)

Each week for the next 16 weeks (that’s 16 x 30 min programmes) we will be reviewing a fab travel book. If you are a book club enthusiast and especially a travel book enthusiast, do give it a go!

Recently, we have been able to actually interview some of the authors on the show and it really does add to the fun of the book club experience… for instance I recently interviewed the ‘man who swam the Amazon’ – Martin Strel (The Man who Swam the Amazon) – what a fascinating and incredibly determined man. Such a good read too!

Okay gang, enjoy – my very excited and proud mum will be selling dvds of the series in no time I am sure!!

bon voyage x
