About the Book

Bestselling author Bill Arnott has done it again — he’s gone “viking”! — voyaging around the world by foot, bus, train, boat, and a couple of questionable planes.

Gone Viking II features a series of remarkable excursions occuring over a number of years — before, during, and after the voyages recounted in Gone Viking: A Travel Saga. All of these journeys are now reflected in a changed world in which travel restrictions have become our new normal and many adventurers find themselves retracing previous trips through the pages of their personal notebooks and travel diaries. From first-hand encounters, vividly shared experience, and well-worn personal journals, readers can travel alongside this fun-loving wanderer in the footsteps of history’s greatest explorers, make quirky new friends, find hidden treasures, and discover surprisingly familiar destinations from the comfort of their favourite armchair.

With an inquisitive eye, poetic prose, and a comedian’s take on nearly everything, Bill Arnott explores the world with insight and humour. Join this award-winning author for another travel saga, voyaging across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Oceania by foot, bus, train, boat, and a couple of questionable planes.
