Format: Hardcover
The Global Suitcase by Mary J Dinan is a fantastic collection of inspirational tales from many of the world's renowned travellers as well as favourite celebrities. From the BBC presenter Simon Reeve to Carol Drinkwater and from comedy favourite Ardal O'Hanlon to Northern Irish journalist and adventurer Geoff Hill, the stories will take you on a celebratory journey through lesser travelled regions.
Credit must go to the author Mary Dinan for her painstaking work in collecting these tales of adventure. Each traveller paints a vivid portrait of his or her favourite journey, whether it's soul searching or simply an opportunity to sample another culture. Mary has got into the very heart of each interviewee and the end result is a myriad of truly memorable tales.
Also featured in the colourful collection of interviews are travel writer Dervla Murphy, cameraman Nigel Meakin, Jonathan Dimbleby and John Simpson, many of whom have risked life and limb.
The Global Suitcase is a wonderfully exciting book, totally unputdownable and its thrilling stories are a must for any reader or traveller.

We all read what great travel writers write, but we never get a chance to find out what makes them tick. Enter Mary Dinan, with the inspired idea to go and find out by asking them. The result, The Global Suitcase, is a unique and inspiring collection of interviews with travellers both famous and lesser known to find what they've seen, what they've loved, what they've hated and what's inspired them in their globetrotting. A fabulous idea. Roll on the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book 3 April 2014
By ANTHONY HILLICK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found this book very easy to read, easy to pick up, put down and pick up again. The books magic is it's simplicity and is comparable to Robert Byrnes "Mc Goorty -Diary of a pool room hustler and Bill Bryson's book about Australia "In a sunshine country". If you ever thought of quitting your job to go travelling,then this is a must read. Hope to see more from this author who I knew over two decades ago. Congrats to all who published this book.
