Are We There Yet? with author Ian Pilbeam and Ladey Adey

Season 2022, Ep. 21

In this episode, Ladey Adey talks with author Ian Pilbeam.


Ian originally from Boston, Lincolnshire introduces us to his book Are We There Yet?


Ian is addicted to travel. When he is not running his Human Resources and Health & Safety business in his adopted hometown of Edinburgh, he is planning the next trip. The biggest trip of all was the year his family went backpacking around the world. 


In Ian’s book, he says, “I believe that life is like a book – each one with a chapter and it all depends how interesting they are... 10 years after the adventure, the raw and honest book is born.
