A Gen­tle­man Abroad: Fran­cis Bren­nan’s Travel Tales, by Fran­cis Bren­nan, €14.99. Fran­cis Bren­nan, the co-owner of the fives­tar Park Ho­tel Ken­mare, Co Kerry, is a house­hold name as a hote­lier and an au­thor, but mostly as a TV per­son­al­ity, not least starring in his Grand Tour RTÉ series. If you are fi­nally get­ting to tick the travel box on your bucket list, or sim­ply have more time due to re­tire­ment, his lat­est book, A Gen­tle­man Abroad, might whet your ap­petite, as he re­counts his tales of trav­el­ling through­out the world and the ad­ven­tures and mishaps that en­sued. From Viet­nam to the Vat­i­can, In­dia to Aus­tralia, New Zealand to New York, and his re­cent trip of a life­time, driv­ing the leg­endary Route 66 in an RV mo­torhome, it might of­fer a bit of es­capism from the win­ter days ahead, as well as an op­por­tu­nity to dream up your own des­ti­na­tions.
