Description :


Some years ago two travellers, mounted on wiry yet strong looking steeds, were wending their way through a forest in Australia. They were both young and dressed much alike in broad-brimmed pith hats, loose red shirts, corduroy trousers and high boots with spurs. Each of them had stuck in his belt an axe, a brace of pistols, and a long knife; while at his back was slung a serviceable-looking rifle, showing that they were prepared to defend themselves, should they encounter any treacherous blacks, a very possible contingency at that period of the countryÕs history. They were followed by an active native also mounted, who led a horse carrying their baggage. The scenery was not especially attractive, indeed so great was its sameness that alone they would have been utterly unable to find their way. On either side rose tall stringy-bark and other gum-trees, their curious and narrow leaves affording scarcely any shelter from the rays of the almost vertical sun, the huge white stems from which the bark hung down in ragged masses giving them a weird and dreary aspect. Tracks there were, but they branched now in one direction now in the other, and were more calculated to bewilder the travellers than to guide them aright. Their mapÑfor being new arrivals in the country they carried oneÑtold them that they should soon reach a broad stream. They were now looking out eagerly for it, wondering whether they should have to wade through it or should find a ferry-boat ready to take them and their animals across.

Description :


A one-way ticket to Australia...two months of travel...and a shoestring budget. In Red Earth Diaries we meet Jason and Ambika, a newlywed couple who migrated to Australia with the hope of a fresh start. However, unlike most migrants, they made a bold decision to postpone their settlement plans, throw caution to the wind and backpack in Australia on a shoestring budget. Their intention was to learn about the country and its people first-hand ... a land they would someday call home. Swimming with sharks, cuddling cute koalas, chartering private helicopters, venturing deep into ancient rainforests, and getting to know plenty of locals - the couple had incredible experiences in this stunning country. Their travel story is interwoven with snippets of history and provides the reader with a glimpse of Australia as viewed through the eyes of newly arrived migrants. Join Jason and Ambika on their spectacular journey of discovery. Red Earth Diaries is founded on four primary pillars: a migrant's journal, a travelogue, a delve into Australian history, and an inspirational tale. The central message of the book is for everyone to chase their dreams - however distant and impossible they may seem. The central message of the book is for everyone to chase their dreams - however distant and impossible they may seem. Moving to Australia has been one seemingly impossible goal the author had set decades ago, and he likewise urges the reader to shed all reservations and to dream the wildest dreams possible. The Preface of Red Earth Diaries is called Dreamtime, and in it, the author describes the evolution of his journey to this strange and peculiar wonderland. As a travelogue, the book harkens to all travellers as well as migrants who are already in Australia or who are thinking of making the move to this beautiful country. The book also contains stories of local Australians the couple met along the way. In it you will meet, amongst others - Helen, a 10-Pound-pom; Rowland Mosbergen, a sprightly man in his eighties who survived the horrors of WWII in a remote jungle in Bahau; Rafael and Nadia and their three kids based in Research, Victoria; Ranjit, a practising surgeon and his wife who are based in Kew, Melbourne. The travelogue aims to deliver an essential message to all migrants in Australia - to not take this country for granted but to try to understand and embrace its culture first. Some key personalities mentioned: Paul Hogan, Ned Kelly, Steve Irwin, Captain Cook, Burley Griffin, Gregory Blaxland, Jorn Utzon, Eddie Mabo Some key historical events described: The Endeavour striking the reef, finding a passage through the Blue Mountains, the discovery of gold, the naming of Sunshine Coast, the birth of Canberra as the nation's capital, the iconic rail journeys in Australia, WWI and WWII, Early colonization, Blackbirding, construction of Opera House.

Description :


The inside story of the dangers, delights and diversions of life as a foreign correspondent. As a foreign correspondent for the BBC, Nick Bryant has reported from the wilds of Afghanistan, Pakistan, London, Washington and, for the past five years, Australia. Adventures in Correspondentland - his account of these experiences - is part memoir, part travelogue and part polemic. More than anything, however, it is the inside story of the dangers and delights of seeing the world through this unique, sometimes privileged and often strange perspective. How did Bill Clinton react when, in front of a ballroom of over 2000 people, he had to present the award for 'Journalist of the Year' to the reporter who had discovered the existence of Monica Lewinsky's little blue dress? Why did the media report on the night that Princess Diana was killed in a Paris underpass that she was alive when correspondents knew she was dead? How did Bono help save the Northern Ireland peace process? What were international journalists really saying about Prime Minister Rudd? In Adventures in Correspondentland, Nick Bryant takes us around the world and back home to Australia, where he has covered events such as the death of Steve Irwin, the national apology to indigenous Australians and the 2011 Queensland floods. In being an Englishman abroad, he gives us a fresh, funny and revealing insight into how the world sees Australia at the start of the twenty-first century.
