Right now much of the world is in lockdown as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the planet.
But, to my way of looking at it, we can still travel. Just not literally (by which I mean physically).
But we can read books set in far-flung places. I can pick up Alexander McCall Smith’s wonderful series about the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency and be immediately transported to Botswana. It’s a country that remains on my bucket list but, even so, I feel as if I’ve been there.
In the same way, I hope my series following Meredith Pink on her adventures in Egypt can mentally take readers to the heat, light, dust and magic of the Land of the Pharaohs. Here’s the first couple of lines to whet your appetite: “At first, when I found myself locked in Howard Carter’s house for the night, I thought it must be an elaborate prank. A little later, when I smashed one of his pictures, I stopped seeing the funny side.”
We can also look at pictures and photographs to remind ourselves of the wonders of far flung places we might long to travel to. Here are a few of my favourites taken on my travels in Egypt:
