The Curious Antipodean: The Journal of a family side-tracked halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Canadian Rockies. The highs and lows, a (Paperback)
A family seeking an adventure and a change up from their ordinary work life took up a teacher exchange. Swapping jobs, home and everything that goes with it.
Essentially, they engaged in a sociology experiment wrapped in an adventure. Simultaneously the participant and observer.
Transplanted from laid back tropical northern Australia on the doorstep of the reef and rainforest to a land of snow and ice, pristine lakes, amazing wildlife and mountains that reach to the sky.
This is a Journal of an Australian family sidetracked for 365 days halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Canadian Rockies. A snapshot of life lead by curiosity, a special and out of the ordinary experience.
An insight into the joys, frustrations and realisations of life on the other side of our planet and the human condition.
A story of personal growth while navigating a culture that was surprisingly very different from home. No longer simply fair-weather travellers they experienced a destination through all its seasons and had the chance to look at some of the history, traditions and quirks of another nation.
