Book launch: London, Oxford, HK

Dear Friends

After spending much of this year as a secluding writing hermit, I am delighted to share news with you that my Walking Home From Mongolia book is now finished.

It tells the story of my and Leon’s trials and tribulations as we walked 3,000 miles, from the Gobi Desert to Hong Kong. Our route took us along the Great Wall, past the frozen Yellow River, and through the toxic insides of China’s longest road tunnel. We encountered -30C blizzards, interrogations by the Chinese police, as well as the exuberant hospitality of desert nomads, cave dwellers and villagers.

The TV series has also been premiered on Nat Geo Adventure Channel in Australia and Asia. This November and December, I am delighted to invite you to the book and DVD launch.
LONDON – Tue Nov 19, from 6.30pm, The Yager Bar. Confirm your place here 

OXFORD – Fri Nov 22, from 6.30pm, The Mitre. Confirm your place here

HONG KONG – Mon Dec 2, from 6.30pm, Grappa’s Cellar, Jardine House Confirm your place here

I will also give a short talk about the expedition and show some TV highlights. A portion of the evenings’ sales profits will go towards the work of Viva. Viva inspires lasting change in children’s lives through the power of collective action. Find out more at

Do invite your friends, and as a shameless plug, don’t forget that DVDs and signed books make wonderful Christmas presents!

Please like our Facebook page to keep updated about the launch. There will be opportunities to win free books, DVDs, and even Walking Home From Mongolia expedition clothing! In view of the anticipated popularity of the event and limited space, we strongly recommend that you register early.

I hope to see you there!
