This third book in the Travelling Solo series, not only covers a single week in The Gambia, but reflections on previous visits.

It is witty, informative, colourful and insightful, both of the region and the solo traveller. It paints a vivid picture of the places visited and the people encountered along the way, in a frank and humorous manner.

You will meet Velcro Man and Mr and Mrs Arrogant as the author searches for the elusive White Egret. This is not a travel guide, although it would make a fine travel companion for anyone visiting the region.


This is one of those books that you pick up to browse and then can't put down. The first few pages set the tone. It is a serious and detailed travelog of a seasoned traveller presented in a lighthearted and humorous fashion. I Hamilton

This book was every bit as good as the two previous travel books in the series. Susan writes very fluently and very humorously and I loved the characters like Velcro man and Mr Arrogant. The cover design for the series is very evocative but the quality is not just skin deep. This book, like the others, should encourage anyone who has ever thought about traveling alone to do so. J Neiger

The book was everything I expected and more. Ms Rogers has a inane knack of recalling the humorous happenings of her trips with such vivid description you could almost be there.For instance innocently photographing the goats on a car roof by boarder control and getting questioned by the police. Hilarious!

This is now the third book I've read in the 'Travelling Solo' series and in my opinion they just get better and better.  W Walker
