Polly Evans quirkily adventures, online

I met Polly Evans - a successful author of chick-travelling Lit - in Sarajevo, in the back of a people carrier en route to a gala dinner held by the Bosnia and Herzegovina tourist board. We were off to celebrate British Airways' new flight from Gatwick to the Bosnian capital and to learn more about this emerging eastern European destination.

Polly has now launched her own website and it's a good one to watch for inspiration as well as news of her recent travels.

No doubt she'll soon be adding posts soon on her latest book Mad Dogs and an Englishwoman, in which she shares trial and tribulations of driving sled dogs in Canada's Yukon Territory. Published by Bantam Books, £7.99 on Feb 11th.
