Growing Old Outrageously : A memoir of travel, food and friendship Paperback / softback


Two old school friends reconnect unexpectedly after thirty-five years and discover that they both love travelling - and the more exotic and far-flung the location, the better!

Not having a clue whether they will get along, the eccentric pair embark on a trial journey to Morocco.

That tentative beginning has turned into a series of wonderfully unusual holidays, and Hil and Liz have been circumnavigating the globe ever since. Among many other destinations, they have taken in Marrakech, Fez and the Atlas Mountains; Patagonia and the Galapagos Islands; Istanbul and Cappadocia.

They've been on safari in Namibia, Botswana and the Serengeti, attended music festivals in Naples and Prague and made a pilgrimage to the western isles of Mull and Iona.

Along the way they have encouraged, enraged and entertained each other, while living through countless adventures. This is a book for thrillseekers and armchair travellers alike, a celebration of friendship and laughter - and an inspiration for anyone who's longed to venture outside their comfort zone and travel to exotic places.
