Perfect for a lazy day read.
Valerie’s passion for travel and writing come together in a collection of travel stories with a difference.
Far from being ‘just another travel book’, readers are transported with detailed sights, flavours, smells and indulgences that shape a complete and transformational immersion into faraway lands. 
Distant Reflections is your own personal transport system.
Take in the customs and history of Spain, Portugal and Morocco and enjoy new cultures and little-known poetry from many regions. 
Travelling is an aspiration for many, but for some it is unavailable. Valerie has been there and brought back the dramas, the mysteries, and the sheer delights to share with you.  
Why hesitate? Begin today.

    A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf...

    "JOHN MUIR, Earth-planet, Universe."—These words are written on the inside cover of the notebook from which the contents of this volume have been taken. They reflect the mood in which the late author and explorer undertook his thousand-mile walk to the Gulf of Mexico. No less does this refreshingly cosmopolitan address, which might have startled any finder of the book, reveal the temper and the comprehensiveness of Mr. Muir's mind. He never was and never could be a parochial student of nature. 
    In September 1867, Muir undertook a walk of about 1,000 miles (1,600 km) from Kentucky to Florida, which he recounted in his book A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf. He had no specific route chosen, except to go by the "wildest, leafiest, and least trodden way I could find."

On the 75th anniversary of the campaign between Australian and Japanese troops, author Nikki Moyes trekked the 96km of track where her grandfather acted as a translator. Known for its steep, rugged, and muddy mountain terrain, the track also offers stunning scenery, magnificent jungle plant life, and friendly locals. This is what it is like to hike the Kokoda Track.
