Will (aka Wilbur) has been hooked on overseas train travel since a first inter-rail trip in 1987 that transported him to nine European countries in a whirlwind three weeks.
In 2006, circumstances determined that Will and his regular travel buddy Hamish were to embark on a new European tour by train. They were hooked all over again.
Will has now toured every possible European & Eurasian country by train, clocking up tens of thousands of track kilometres in the process.
With further books planned recounting journeys behind the Iron Curtain and throughout the former Soviet Union, this first book concentrates on the intoxicating & volatile Balkans region.
Synonymous with disputes and conflict, the region is beautiful, fascinating and most importantly peaceful once more.
Tensions borne from centuries of disagreement and occupation are still bubbling just below the surface however.
Follow Will on his journeys through Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Northern Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia & European Turkey, taking in the thrills, dramas & offbeat characters experienced along the way.
Available from Amazon as both an ebook and a paperback, ‘Travelling By Train Across The Balkans’ is a perfect reading companion for your own adventures.
