I grew up in Australia, but like many Ausies, I wanted to explore the world. After two years travelling around my birth country, I bought a one-way ticket in India and didn’t return to Australia for six years.

From India I journeyed by sea across to East Africa which gave me the inspiration for a second novel. The story’s about an Ismaili girl growing up in Dar es Salaam who escapes from her dark past, only to find it catches up with her in Canada.

I only spent a couple of weeks in Uganda, but after I left, I kept hearing stories about the country. This eventually gave me inspiration for my third novel that I’m in the midst of writing.

I now call Canada home.

  1. I visited Sri Lanka on 12 September 2001, the day after the terrorist attack on the American twin towers. I must confess to having been extremely nervous. I was, however determined to go and I certainly don’t regret my trip. Sri Lanka is a fascinating country. I went during the monsoon season (well the tail end of it) and have wonderfuol memories of sitting on an elephant and getting drenched in the rain. Within about 5 minutes of the rain stopping, the intense heat had completely dried me out! I loved listening to the sound of the insects as I sat outside at night and the scents where amazing. We didn’t go to Colombo as, with the Tamil Tiger issue we where warned that our insurance wouldn’t cover us had we done so. I would love to visit again. Kevin

  2. So far I’ve only had the chance to read your Canadian section but it’s a nice read. My wife and I live in northern Canada and have always wanted to go up to Tuk. Thanks for the articles

  3. Hello, I’ve only left the US on two occasions, neither of which involved trips to India or Sri Lanka. That being said, I thoroughly enjoy living vicariously through the travels of others. I find it to be so exciting when I meet people here in the blogosphere who make it their life’s ambition to go, to do, and to share… and now I’m off to explore…
    P.S. thanks for being such a gracious tour guide

      1. Calgary and Vancouver. 2 places that are homey…I work in Calgary..but go back to Vancouver ..when I can. Alas, my vacation benefit doesn’t give me enough days.

        Lived and worked in Vancouver for 8 yrs. before I accepted a job in Calgary.
