Volume One – covers Gerard’s first overseas trip in 1976 where he visited for the first time Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, India, Istanbul and Athens. His description of these places takes the reader back in time to how these places were over thirty years ago. There are comments through the text on how some of these places had changed when he revisited them twenty to thirty years later, whether it be change in the lifestyle of the people or change in the landscape, urban areas and facilities. Gerard travelled extensively in Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia in 1996. There is an extensive section on Europe.

Architecture, scenery and people met were all well documented in his travel diaries and this volume largely uses text from the diaries to create an enjoyable trip around North America when the reader can easily visualise and experience. Like in Volume One, there are an average of two colour photos on each page which relates to the text surrounding it to really give the reader a feeling that they on a journey with the writer.

Volume Three – takes the reader through the Pacific Islands of Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, Fiji, New Caledonia, New Zealand and Papua.
