About

Like many travelers to far off lands, the planets starting aligning around when we both were approaching 50. Children finishing school and setting their independent paths, relative financial surety, and a strong desire to get in some of that traveling that we didn’t do when we were younger.

These pages and postings are not a philosophical treatise about traveling. Rather, they are a reproduction of the travel diaries of 2 Australians, with a few photographs thrown in. What more could you want?

Veronica:

I have been a classroom teacher in the Parramatta Diocese Catholic Education system for more than 30 years. Its damn hard work being upfront everyday, and I have recently moved out of the classroom to a specialised disability support role.

Tony:

Tony’s 20 year employment at  local council was thrown into question when I was given the opportunity to travel to the United States in 2008 to present at a conference – not on my paid work, but about my volunteering role in fire-fighting.

I now work for the NSW Rural Fire Service, continue to be a volunteer fire-fighter and community educator, and have taken up travel musing and planning.
