Algarve author Alyson Sheldrake has released the third book in her Travel Stories Series. Wish You Were Here – Holiday Memories features a collection of short travel stories from all over the world that will certainly inspire the reader to book their next holiday.
Alyson invited different authors to join her in this anthology and share their distinctive holiday memories. Whether it is a childhood ‘bucket and spade’ family adventure, a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ dream destination, their first trip abroad or the city where they first fell in love, their stories are expected to delight the reader.
Says Alyson: “I’m sure that most of us have a favourite holiday memory, the one destination that stands out in our minds as special. The one that we hold on to the photographs for, maybe keeping them tucked away in a box along with a few special mementoes and postcards.”
In this compilation of stories, the reader will “travel around Europe, eating and drinking the local food and wine, or chase down the perfect slice of pizza in New Zealand.
“Be humbled by the poverty in Africa, and find out what it was really like to hang out in the hippie caves of Crete in the 1970s. Visit temples in Thailand and a floating restaurant in Hong Kong.
“Go snorkelling in the Galápagos, or ride on a banana boat to Trinidad. Fall in love in Paris and join us for a romantic wedding on a beach in Barbados.”
Alyson Sheldrake was born in Birmingham in 1968. In 2011, along with her husband Dave, the couple started a new adventure in the Algarve thus fulfilling their long-held dream of living in the sun.
She is the author of the award-winning Algarve Blog and an accomplished artist working alongside her husband, Dave, a professional photographer.
She has published three books about their Algarve Adventures: Living the Dream – in the Algarve, Portugal; Living the Quieter Algarve Dream; and an anthology of expat stories entitled A New Life in the Algarve, Portugal.
Her next writing adventure took her into the world of anthologies, with her Travel Stories Series. The first book, Chasing the Dream – A new life abroad, was released in June 2021. This was followed in September 2021 by Itchy Feet – Tales of travel and adventure.
