Would you sell just everything, ditch your plans
And buy a ticket to the other side of the world?
In her twenties, the author did just that -
And got much more than she could ever have bargained for ...
Raised in England of British-Australian parentage, the author sells her possessions and flies to her birthplace in Sydney with no solid plans or timetable in mind.
Discovering by chance that she has another sister, a whole new world opens up: from living on a camel farm and picnicking with kookaburras, to paddock baths, unconventional lifestyles, City Farming and much, much more...
But, before she returns to England, she has one last thing to do: to go in search of her grandmother – the woman who left her daughter to be brought up by cruel nuns in an orphanage…
"Not so much a how-to of family history research, as what can happen when the results are in."
This book is an easy read, never stops moving and will appeal to a wide range of readers, including lovers of travel writing, family history buffs and those interested in less conventional lifestyles.
Chapter titles include: Letting the Possum out of the Bag; Rainbow Pants Not Essential; Bald as a Blue-Tongued Lizard; and WWOOFing with Pigs.
