Author of 'The New Odyssey' Patrick Kingsley shared his experiences of travelling with those in the middle of the migration crisis.
'You meet all sorts of people. People in the midst of this crisis, and those involved in smuggling are three dimensional characters with real backstories. it's not smuggling as you or I understand it'
Author Patrick Kingsley joined George on High Noon to talk about his book 'A New Odyssey', describing his time with migrants travelling around Europe and beyond.
George assumed the trek undertaken by Kingsley for this book was grueling.
'At different points over the last year it's been very demanding' says Kingsley. 'There were points at the start of 2015 where people were literally walking across the Balkans.'
