Book Review: Van Cat Meow by Richard East

Richard East appeared to have it all. A house in the suburbs, a job, a girlfriend, family and friends. But he was still lost. His job lacked meaning. His life seemed empty. The only thing that seemed to make sense was his trips away from the hustle and bustle in a campervan with his girlfriend. But once that broke down, it became apparent to him that the mundane life he had was not one he wanted.

In time, Richard made a decision to change it all. With a newly fitted campervan, some savings from selling the house and most of his stuff, and a black cat Willow, he took off from Tasmania and began travelling through mainland Australia. And together, Richard and Willow became Van Cat Meow.

If you are on Instagram and a bit of a cat lover, you probably know about Willow and her human. The book is filled with beautiful pictures of Willow and Australia’s natural wonders as well as insights Richard has gained along the way about life and what it’s all about. It’s a lovely little book and the pictures are absolutely incredible. After reading it, I must confess I was tempted to get myself a campervan and hop on it with Pebbles and Buttons and travel Australia.

Maybe someday.

    This sounds like such a wonderful wonderful read. Last year the children had Tasmania as part of their geography syllabus and I completely fell in love with the country. They of course didn’t like it as much given that they had so much mugging up to do. But I would love to visit someday. The next best thing is to read about it. Shall check out instagram.
