Upon hearing about the amazing Map Shop in Upton-on-Severn, I decided a visit was essential.
What an amazing place.
It was a travellers Aladdin's cave.
Books about every corner of the globe.
I found plenty both books and maps
There are many books of different genre about the country of South Africa.
With regard to Southern Africa, especially Botswana and Namibia, the two other countries I would be travelling through, choice was very limited.
And the read of the month for September 2019 is..................................................
Botswana & Namibia Lonely Planet
This seems an appropriate book as I am of to Africa shortly.
Like most books in the Lonely Planet series it is packed with information. This is especially useful for the independent traveller. Even, if like me you are part of a tour group, it offers an insight into the country. It is, however a very specialized travel book.
Contrary to my assumption each book often has several contributors. Considering the amount of detail information this is not surprising.
A wish of mine had been to be a Lonely Planet contributor.
On reflection I am too independent and opinionated.
