GREAT MOMENTS IN TRAVEL

When I would think, well this is what I’ve come for and the physical and psychological demands of the effort to get here, are now worth it:

  1. I’ve just finished reading your book and then found this blog. It was a fantastic read and I identified with so much of it. I went travelling in 1968 after teaching 5 years in Sydney. It lasted 7 years with overland journeys from Asia to London, across South America and London to Capetown as well as the U.S. & Canada and all Europe and the Soviet Union by car and camping. Now retired I am now scanning many of my slides and making photo books through blurb.com. My most recent book was on Morocco where I went in 1972 and 1974 so I loved reading and reliving places we had both visited. And all the places I had not been to and you had. All my books can be viewed online on the blurb.com bookshop site by entering my name. I once had a photo library called World Images but I abandoned it years ago when I was back in teaching and too busy to spend the time on the digital changeover.

  2. Thanks for dropping by Ruth. Aren’t we lucky to have travelled during the sixties. Travel is not the same today.
