Event description

Description

Alastair Sawday has spent his life travelling. Born in a wooden shack 9,000’ up in the mountains in Kashmir his love of adventure began as a teenager in the 1960s when he set sale for Massachusetts. Then came teaching in St Lucia, and on to Trinidad and Guyana.

The lifeblood of Sawday’s work is a relentless pursuit of authenticity, of natural home-grown resources, of the joy and humour in quirks of humanity, culture and landscape.

Sawday recounts the eccentricities of guests, hotels and their owners. From the majesty of Venice, Turkey and Greece, to the ‘baroque flourish’ of Sicily, the lush valleys of Ty-Mynydd in Wales and the rugged beauty of Porthcurno, Cornwall – ‘Travelling Light’ celebrates the qualities that have made his guidebooks unique: rich peculiarity of location and warm, eclectic hospitality.
