(2012. Ginninderra Press, Port Adelaide. 256pp)
“Around the World in Eighty Ways is a book for travellers rather than a travel book. The author makes no attempt to extol the virtues of different and far-flung places, nor how to get there, nor what to do when you are there, nor – and what is usually worse – any mention of how much of a small fortune all that would cost.
By contrast we have here a veritable salmagundi of travel adventures – for both the armchair voyager and the inveterate wanderer. You will accompany the author to places both near and far, sometimes with his family and sometimes not, to experience with him the ups and downs of his travel at home and abroad. And always with a smile on your face.”
