About the Author
Gerry Skoyles is a former globetrotter, still living life on the edge. Travelling days started with an overland journey to India in a beaten-up camper-van. One of the last passenger ships plying between Southampton and Australia took him to a new life down under. After returning to the UK, he spent periods around Europe and South East Asia. Although now based in England, adventures near and far still occupy a good deal of time.
