(Ant Press)

Tired of soggy Scottish summers and irritating midges, Roy and Justi seize the day and leave the Scottish Highlands for Slovenia with a car full of their belongings, their border collie and the dream of a new life. The trouble is, they have little money, vague prospects and have never been to Slovenia.

Adventures and near-death experiences await them in the hot summers and snowy winters of the Julian Alps, but will their passion for the great outdoors be enough to transform their dream into a practical reality?

“The Sunny Side of the Alps” is Roy’s first book of these adventures.
