A Bump on the Road: Travels With My Wife
After almost forty-four years of marriage, the trials and intrigue of travelling together can make you wonder why...
From cruising in Alaska, to railway journeys in Australia, to walking tours in thunderstorms in Adelaide, why do we do these things?
Being eaten alive by sand flies in tropical far north Queensland, being ambushed by monster kangaroos on Raymond Island. Dragging a caravan in Outback New South Wales and Queensland, having pumpkin scones and tea with the son of Queensland's former premier, Sir Joh Bjelke-Peterson at the family property, Bethany.
To be abused and sworn at by very well dressed beggars in Vancouver and discover you just don't know what lies around the next corner. Enduring eight days and nights at Port Fairy in Victoria, watching and listening to the riveting Commonwealth Sheep Dog Trials...
...travel knows no bounds.
Travel has its joys, but we need to do it with another. I chose my wife; well, I really didn't have an option.
