My new ´´Travel Tales Collection´´, issue No. 12 for July 2015, ´´England, Ireland & British Isles Stories´´, a monthly book-of-the-month bookazine, is now available. It is part of Michael Brein´s Collections travel tales series and contains among the best stories from Michael´s huge collection of travel stories that he has gathered in interviews over the last four decades. I´ve interviewed nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers in my own travels to more than 125 countries throughout the world. I am weaving their 10,000 or so fantastic travel tales into a psychology of travel as revealed by these very telling stories. These are travelers I´ve met on planes, trains, buses, ships, tours, safaris, and in campgrounds, cafes, and pubs. These travelers have freely shared their most personal travel tales with me, which I, in turn, get to share with you now through my Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, in general, and the Travel Tales Collections, here, in particular. Each Collection features a group of similar noteworthy travel tales of a kind, all on a very specific travel subject, theme, or country. The travel stories appear in Travel Tales Collections as a waypoint along their way into the audiobooks in my Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series. Travel tales are told here - but with this one unique difference - with my being the world´s first travel psychologist, you´ll get more of the psychological pay dirt behind the incredible travel tales told to me by these travelers. About this Collection: London is one of my most favorite cities, not only in Europe, but also in the entire world. And I love England and the rest of the U.K. as well. And while London is always exciting for me to visit, it is the whole of the United Kingdom that remains particularly etched in my memories. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs.

Antonin Artaud´s 1937 apocalyptic journey to Ireland and his writings from that journey form an extraordinary moment of accumulating disintegration and tenacious creativity in his work. After publishing a manifesto prophecy about the catastrophic immediate-future entitled The New Revelations of Being, Artaud abruptly left Paris and travelled to Ireland, remaning there for six weeks and existing without money, travelling first to the isolated island of Inishmore off Ireland´s western coast, then to Galway, and finally to Dublin, where he was arrested as an undesirable alien, beaten by the police, and summarily deported back to France. On his return, he spent nine years in lunatic asylums, including the entire span of the Second World War. During that journey to Ireland-on which he accumulated signs of his forthcoming apocalypse, and planned his own role in it as ´THE REVEALED ONE´-Artaud wrote letters to friends in Paris and also created several magic spells, intended to curse his enemies and to protect his friends from Paris´s forthcoming incineration and the Antichrist´s appearance at the Deux Magots cafe. To André Breton, he wrote: ´It´s the Unbelievable-yes, the Unbelievable- it´s the Unbelievable which is the truth.´ Many of his writings from Ireland were lost, and this book collects all of his surviving letters, drawn together from archives and private collections, together with photographs of the locations he travelled through. This edition, with an afterward and notes by the book´s translator/editor, Stephen Barber, marks the seventieth anniversary of Artaud´s death.
To discover the sweetest things in life, you sometimes have to lose your way…It’s easy to fall in love with the beautiful town of Redstone – the locals wave and chat to each other, the shops and cafes are full of cheerful hustle and bustle. And amidst all this activity, two women believe they are getting on just fine. Francesca’s boundless energy helps her to take everything in her stride, including a husband who has lost his job and the unwelcome arrival of the menopause, which has kicked in – full throttle. Peggy has always been a restless spirit. But now, focused and approaching thirty, she has opened her own knitting shop on the town’s high street. It’s a dream come true, but she still feels adrift. When Australian-raised Lillie finally makes it back home to Ireland, she is drawn right into the heart of Redstone’s thriving community. But what she thought would be an ending is actually just a beginning; all of Lillie’s hard-earned wisdom will soon be called into play as she helps new friends navigate unchartered territory…. 1.
