Publishing travel book
Tom B. Publishers wrote and published the travel book ‘Een idioot groene roadtrip’ with a preface of tv maker Floortje Dessing. To raise awareness for sustainable tourism, Dutch travel journalist Aranka van der Pol and her dog Ki, travelled during three months in an electric tuk-tuk from Amsterdam to Faro.
En route Aranka visited green addresses and interviewed politicians, journalists, winemakers and hotel owners about their drive for sustainability.
“It was a great adventure: being overwhelmed by the rain in a tent in Pornic, surfing in Seignosse, waiting for hours in a meadow until the tuk-tuk was charged, staying at the Count of Calheiros’ palace, surviving on the highway, conversing with the mayor of Obidos and with Garret McNamarra – the biggest wave rider in the world – looking over the cliff in Nazaré.”
