One of our Balloons is Missing

Readers of my recent blog postings might be forgiven for thinking that all I do is powerboating, which couldn’t be further from the truth. True, I did many thousands of miles around the world and on a number of other trips some years ago on Spirit of Cardiff. True, I also have another circumnavigation record attempt coming up later this year. But most of my career as a journalist has been spent travelling the world engaging in all manner of activities in pursuit of a good story.

One of our Balloons is Missing

“One of our Balloons is Missing” is an anthology of some of my more colourful stories, published at the moment purely in an electronic edition. In it you can read how I became the first journalist to fly in a hot air balloon in Soviet Russia (which gave the book its title), how I rode at 90mph in a four-man bobsleigh down the Olympic Bob Run in St Moritz, and you’ll find out what it’s like to descend 100 feet to the bottom of Windermere in the English Lake District in a high-tech submersible.

My 14th book, nearly 30 years in the writing, but less than a week from conception to Amazon’s Kindle store. Now that’s progress!

“One of our Balloons is Missing” is available from the Amazon Kindle store, price £3.16
