New Travel Book from the award-winning Ukraine travel writer

by | Jan 25, 2021 | News

A new travel book from an award-winning Letchworth-based writer will take readers all around the world.

The Bumper Book of Vitali’s Travels is a compilation of Vitali Vitaliev’s articles throughout his 30-plus year career.

Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, Vitali takes armchair travellers on a global exploration, encouraging readers to let their minds travel.

“As a professional travel writer whose wanderlust has seen me spend most of the last 30 years on the move it would be easy to succumb to pessimism and ennui with the current restrictions on movement,” said Vitali.

At a time when real-life voyages remain off limits for most, The Bumper Book of Vitali’s Travels enables anyone to journey vicariously, and explore virtually the places that self-confessed ‘dromomaniac’ Vitaliev has visited.

The book includes hundreds of locations across five continents ranging from the more familiar – reimagined – to the completely obscure, all brought vividly to life by the author’s amusing and inimitable writing style.

It chronicles Vitali’s first trip outside of the USSR, when he took a train from Moscow to Britain, through to a final journey in March 2020 to Slovenian/Italian town Nova Gorica/Gorizia, just as lockdown was making the open and all but imaginary border real and visible again for the first time in 13 years.

Among many other journeys, readers can join Vitali on his explorations pre- and post- lifting of the Iron Curtain, around Italy in pursuit of a bad meal, ‘chasing ghosts’ as he follows in the footsteps of his favourite authors, and at some of his favourite destinations including Alaska, South Korea, Nevis, the Falkland Islands, Mount Athos, Tasmania, Venice and Montreuil-sur-Mer.

The Bumper Book of Vitali’s Travels will be available in paperback and for the Kindle through Amazon UK and Amazon US from February 1, 2021.
