Christine Osborne has a way with words to take you with her in the 1960s across North Africa, innocently wearing her little sundress to the fascinating market places in many towns and cities of the Middle East, some of which she has re-visited more recently. And what changes have taken place in those years. The author writes of a time when tourism had yet to become the huge industry of today. The letters home to her mother have a special poignancy.

Christine Osborne’s “Travels with my Hat” is remarkable, covering the world of Islam from the Atlantic Coast of Morocco to the borderlands of Asia. It is a multi-layered work, encompassing the history, traditions and people of each nation plus, of course, the sheer joy of experiencing the different and unexpected through the author?s discerning eyes.
Repeated visits to these many countries have revealed the subtle (and not so subtle) impacts of the West on Islam and have constituted the work of a lifetime. Fascinating!

As well as displaying an impressive knowledge of mid-Eastern cultures, the author's daring and courage in exploring this region make Travels with My Hat absorbing reading!

Magnificent book. Insightful, moving and extremely well written. I congratulate the author on this wonderful achievement and urge everyone to read what will I'm sure come to be regarded as one of the best books of 2014. If you love travel, are interested in the lives of strong, independent women or have ever dreamed of what it would be like to make a living as an international photographer, you will enjoy Travels with My Hat.
