From A Wonky Path To An Open Road: A short book about a long journey

Author(s): Janey de Nordwall

Location(s): Scotland

Genre(s): Travelogue

Era(s): 2019



In 2019, BAFTA-winning film producer, Janey de Nordwall packed her bags (and her cat), fired up her 1970s VW campervan and headed off from her London home to Scotland for a solo road trip that would change her life.

Her forty days and forty nights on the road was a soul-searching adventure – from mid-life crisis to life affirming journey. We join Janey as she prepares for her trip. Charlie the van is packed to perfection whilst Kenny the cat is readied for action. We learn about how she came to the point where getting away from it all and recharging her emotional batteries was vital for her survival.

As she meanders along the single-track roads engulfed by the Scottish highlands and islands, Janey captures the lucid beauty of her surroundings, remembers the pivotal moments of her eventful life and reveals her most intimate thoughts.
