About this title


Adventure was one thing, art another, but the main driver for the trip to Timbuktu was to help raise funds for research at the University of Edinburgh for FragileX. Further details can be found on the website, London to Timbuktu for Fragile X. 50 countries visited and now, along with a group of friendly individuals, I had just driven through the Sahara. With these muckers I had ventured deeply into the dark-continent. In this uncertain world there is no guarantee that you will return from any journey, large or small. Some intrepid adventurers like the Victorian, Alexander Gordon Laing, who made it all the way to Timbuktu, but sadly never made it back to his homeland of Scotland - he was slain en-route. I write this promotional e-book to introduce the e-book From Blackpool Tower to Timbuktu, (and back again). The main thing I have learnt is a guess at the scope of things that are yet to be learned - a big scope. Travelling to Timbuktu was part of that scope. A significant theme of this book is autobiography in order to describe the motive; the attempt to make art. I see no fixed issues, rather developmental journeys. I hope you glean something here and that may inspire your own endeavours and that you enjoy this promotional e-book, an introduction to the larger e-book, From Blackpool Tower to Timbuktu, (and back again).
