2 Ann Rickard Flash & Brash With Fries on the Side: Doing California
Australia New Holland 2006 1741103681 / 9781741103687 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
255 pages. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and more. California as you've never seen it before. Award winning travel author Ann Rickard decided to take a road trip around California (with a small detour to Nevada and Las Vegas). With her husband Geoffrey they hire a car and explore the breadth and depth of this rich and fascinating American state: there's the gold country and cowboy towns, the glamour of Hollywood and the breathtaking nature of Yosemite, junk food and gourmet cuisine, the 800 miles (not kilometres) of beautiful coastline and, to the authors great relief and delight, a wine region. Ann declares at the outset that she likes America and Americans, and this is reflected in the narrative as she reveals the weird and wacky side of the Californian Dream with light-hearted insights and comical asides. Geoffrey, he of the ever-ready corkscrew, keeps a steady hand on the wheel as this road trip unravels. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and the biggest backsides on the planet. Yes, this is California, but not as you've seen it before.

192 pages including colour photos. Most of us get the wild partying years out of our system before settling down to raise a family. Journalist Nancy Cawley did it all in reverse. After leaving her husband and four children at the age of 49, she quit New Zealand for the big OE...and partied like the best of them. From Switzerland to Utah she took on a string of jobs as an outdoors/ski instructor, enjoying men and mountains in equal measure, before ultimately returning to Christchurch and turning her passion for travel writing into a fulfilling career that still kindles her sense of adventure several decades later. This fank and affectionate recollection of those times carries the message that life has more to offer the solo woman than coffee mornings and bowls.

Australia Picador 1996 0330358588 / 9780330358583 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
258 indexed pages. The Hindus use the word darshana for the mysterious ecstasy generated in the presence of a holy place. Modern western travellers may experience darshana under more secular conditions. The first time I felt it was in the flat of Sigmund Freud, in Vienna, when I realised that this room produced the most influential theory of the 20th century - that human behaviour is largely driven by the unconscious mind... I decided that from then on, I would travel in search of darshana. Essential Places is a collection of journeys through a landscape of ideas half travel book, half guide to the icons of our age. From Kowloon to California, from Charles Darwin’s garden to Vincent van Gogh’s asylum from the birthplace of the skyscraper to the tomb of Tutankhamun, David Dale seeks out the places every serious traveller must try to reach in order to understand the modern World. He brings together Archimedes and Marilyn Monroe, politics and pasta, fung shui and future shock in twenty - six voyages of the mind and body.

136 pages. ‘Its been a long time since I claimed some solitude in this blessed landscape; since I've done without life's little props. Here I have no friend, no dog, no radio, no clock, no phone, no roof, no body pollutants. The clackety-clack of the typewriter travels out into the valley and gets lost in expanses of forest and paperbark swamp. I ’m the only soul around.’ For ten years, Robyn Davidson has been travelling light. Across the desert, across America on a Harley-Davidson, or walking through the bush of ghosts by night. In these articles that make up "Travelling Light", the bestselling author of Tracks takes us into the wilds of many countries - as well as - countries of the mind. Robyn Davidson was born on a cattle property in Queensland, Australia. She went to Sydney in the late sixties, then spent time studying in Brisbane before moving to Alice Springs, where the events of this book begin. Since then, she has traveled extensively, living in London, New York, and India. In the early 1990s, she migrated with and wrote about nomads in northwestern India. She is now based in Melbourne, but spends several months a year in the Indian Himalayas.
