Overview

Every one thought we were a bit crazy or terribly brave... or both. In 2002 my wife and I, a supposedly normal middle-aged 'empty-nester' NZ couple, quit our jobs, sold up everything and headed off on an open-ended backpacking adventure to explore the world, beginning in Asia. From witnessing revolution in Nepal to surviving the Tsunami in Sri Lanka, from lying for days on spacious Thai beaches to standing for hours on jam-packed Indian buses, from communing with orang-utans to mis-communicating with locals, this book tells of our first three years' travel in Asia with humour, enthusiasm and moments of poignancy. But it is more than a travel/adventure book. This light-hearted account of our physical journey is also about the mind journey that took us from safe Suburbia to adventurous Asia. Running through the weave of fun, experiences, anecdotes and impressions runs a thread about daring to do what you always wanted to do - before it's too late.
