A moment of calm before the launch of @annadothart's wonderful debut book DEPARTURES @ the stunning @norn.co โœ–๏ธ #NornLondon โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒฟ || Have you ever turned up on a post-heartbreak holiday hopelessly unprepared and been forced to sleep on the floor wrapped up in a curtain? How about that eagerly-awaited solo adventure when you had to be airlifted home? Or what about the time you went to a fascinating European cultural capital and neglected to visitย anyย of the world-renowned sights because you were in the bar? || Well, Anna Hart has been on all those holidays, and more. As an avid traveller and then travel journalist, she's spent most of her working life on a plane somewhere, and over 10 years writing about the places she's ended up. Inย Departuresย she brings all of that knowledge together with the signature warmth and wit of her journalism. Anna is here to show that even the experts get it wrong, and how to get it right . . . || If you love travel ~ make sure you get the book!! โœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ’ฅ
