I selected as my subject the year we spent in England and the travelling we did in association with this. The result is a collection of stories, 40 chapters in all, with a total of somewhere around 92,000 words.Each chapter is a yarn in itself, with some observations that people planning a trip abroad as well as armchair travellers may enjoy. It is not simply a tourist guide. Each chapter aims at providing personal observations and human-interest stories to enhance the telling.The tale begins with the plane touching down at Heathrow and goes on to describe our first few weeks in England. Then comes our first trip away, to Egypt. After that, many of the subsequent chapters relate to weekends and longer jaunts in Britain, while others tell of more trips abroad, to Turkey, other parts of Europe, Gran Canaria and Portugal. Finally the trip back to our Great Southland includes a number of chapters on America, before touching down in Fiji and then returning home to Sydney.
