About the Book


Music, music, music.  Right from the start of his package holiday to Menorca, “music” plagues and obsesses the author.  But let’s face it, as Iona, his long-suffering wife can testify, he’s a pretty intolerant sort of a person.


Seen through his eyes, this book provides a sideways look at Menorca, a sort of rough guide to the island, (but not nearly as rough as his next door neighbours in his holiday apartment).


Informative, but at the same time witty and amusing, A Meander in Menorca is an idiosyncratic commentary on this little island from its earliest inhabitants, the ancient Talayotic culture, to the present-day tourists, some of whom have no culture at all.

About the Author


Born in Banff, Scotland (the original and best) David Addison was schooled at the academies of Fordyce and Banff.  Having enjoyed his education there so much, he took a teaching degree from Aberdeen University and subsequently taught English in various locations in Scotland as well as Montana and Poland before retiring early from the chalk face to indulge his unquenchable thirst for travel (and his wife would say, for Cabernet Sauvignon and malt whisky) and thus ensuring that his two children, or at least the two he admits to, are left without a bean.


This is his second book about places he has been.
