I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and looking back at my life I saw a pattern beginning as early as age one. I'm an explorer through and through. Here's a picture of me in search of new worlds.
That clump in the grass? It's my doll. I've left her behind without a care, and I've been on the move ever since.
Forty-four states later, and several foreign lands, I'm now a travel essay writer. After years selling stamps, managing money, and sorting through stuff, I am more at home in my new role than in any other.
I hope you've enjoyed this series of photos related to my book, An American in Oz: Discovering the Island Continent of Australia. It was a lot of fun revisiting the journey via pictures.

I'm often asked, "What did you like most about Australia?" and my first response is always "The people." Aussies are the friendliest, most laid back, seriously happy people I have ever come across. Maybe it has something to do with living on a continent filled with sunshine and surrounded by gorgeous beaches. I also believe it has a lot to do with the nation's philosophy to give everyone "A fair go," which means "Treat everyone fairly and give everyone a fair chance (to do their best)." Now that's the way to live.
