An unforgettable trip to Mexico, Guatemala and Belize

Author and Travel writer, Valerie Astill releases an insightful new book based on her unforgettable trip and adventures to Mexico, Guatemala and Belize.

This fascinating trip consisted of so much more than learning about ancient civilisations such as the Aztecs, Zapotecs and Mayans and visiting the remains of their once great cities. Whether travelling by coach, visiting a remote site by five-seater aeroplane or travelling upriver by boat, the journey itself was part of the adventure.

However, it was the discovery that many Indians still practised ancient customs, plus unexpected events such as an erupting volcano, falling rocks and animals invading the bedroom at night, that made this journey through Mexico, Guatemala and Belize so memorable.


"...An insightful account for the discerning traveller.”

A superb collection of diverse short stories of the unexpected

Jumble Tales

Short and snappy enough for coffee breaks, but long and lingering in the memory.

Psychological sharpshooters, fickle football fans and prodigious people who choose to use and misuse their incredible talents invite you into this collection of their jumbled-up worlds.

During dark days at work where people reflect both on what could have been and on what could still be, things are never quite what they seem, and never turn out as expected.

Steve Morris maintains the momentum from his first book “In All Probability” with more of his diverse short stories of the unexpected.

With a succinct and precise style, this collection contains something to entertain the keenest of readers.

Anything can turn up in a “Jumble Tale.”
