Book Review: Wild camping the Wild Atlantic Way by Will Nell-Barker

This is a well paced and very well written  travelogue

First off, I've known the author on social media for a few years.

I recall Will's trip from Twitter, and took a particular interest as I toured parts of northern and southern Ireland several times in the 80s and 90s. A lot seems to have not changed. I found Ireland overwhelmingly beautiful and friendly.

This book is well paced and you feel like you're actually along with Will for the ride. I read the kindle version. Unlike some books which read like a GPS guide with mileage and other stats, this doesn't and is better for it.

I'm not going to delve into the book and discuss in detail as I don't want to give any spoilers.
Suffice to say it wasn't all.plain sailing for Will. Tours rarely are and I have enough stories of my own. Nothing stopped Will though.

When I finished the book I was disappointed as I wanted it to carry on. That's always a good sign.
