Thank you Christoph Fischer for reading and posting this wonderful review on your blog.
My 5* Review of: “Have Bags, Will Travel” by D.G Kaye
D.G. Kaye’s wonderful travel memoir owns as much to ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ as it does to popular Airline documentaries. Her sharp observations on travel customs and customs offices around the globe are accurate and well observed.
Hilarious and witty with an occasional stab at the bureaucratic and user-unfriendly ways the industry has developed, Kaye describes the fall from grace of airline travel, yet keeps it light-hearted and entertaining throughout.
I have spent 15 years in the air and have to back her up on most of her points.
As another reviewer put it:
“Much of what we endure to travel these days seems to defy logic and Kaye has a qitty way of putting things as well as a sharp, observing mind.
There are many hilarious moments as the author is stuck in customs at an airport in Venezuela, Canada or out in London and the Champs Elysee. Very enjoyable, pretty accurate and useful, thanks to the many tips at the end of the book.
This is compelling and essential travel reading
These Episodic anecdotes of travels past and present this is highly recommended.

Christoph is an eclectic writer. I will be diving into one of his books, The Healers, very shortly, as the subject matter is fascinating. Here’s just a little about Christoph:
Christoph Fischer is an Independent writer from Germany, based in the UK.
Christoph Fischer was born in Germany, near the Austrian border, as the son of a Sudeten-German father and a Bavarian mother. Not a full local in the eyes and ears of his peers he developed an ambiguous sense of belonging and home in Bavaria. He moved to Hamburg in pursuit of his studies and to lead a life of literary indulgence. After a few years he moved on to the UK where he now lives in a small town in West Wales. He and his partner have three Labradoodles to complete their family.
Christoph worked for the British Film Institute, in Libraries, Museums and for an airline. ‘The Luck of The Weissensteiners’ was published in November 2012; ‘Sebastian’ in May 2013 and ‘The Black Eagle Inn’ in October 2013 – which completes his ‘Three Nations Trilogy’. “Time to Let Go”, his first contemporary work was published in May 2014, and “Conditions”, another contemporary novel, in October 2014. His medical thriller “The Healer” was released in January 2015, his latest historical novel “In Search of a Revolution” in March 2015 and his latest thriller “The Gamblers” in June 2015.
He has written several other novels which are in the later stages of editing and finalisation.

What a good review 🙂
Thanks Sue. I was honoured that Christoph took the time to read and review. PS, did you get my pingback? I reblogged your post on writing. 🙂
It’s lovely when folks get to that point in the TBR mountain 🙂
No, I didn’t, Debby… but I shall head on over right now. Thank you!
Thanks Sue, so true! And I guess your wordpress is still acting wonky? 🙂
It is better than it was, but still not right… I hope it is being dealt with! 🙂
I wish you luck. 🙂
Great review by Christopher and a terrific blurb on your part about his books. The Healer is on my TBR list. 🙂
Thanks again Carol. And yes, I can’t wait to read that book, amongst a few others of Christoph’s. 🙂
