 About the Book 

Walkabout. Fair Dinkum. Kangaroos. Vegemite. Have you heard those terms before? Two young men ditch their graduation robes and head to Australia on a whim. As they chase adventure, fun and surfing, they lose themselves into the traveling circuit and the walkabout culture. The lads take to the road with thumbs in the air and learn what it takes to make it town to town in the Land Down Under. Their path takes them to Uluru (Ayers Rock), island camping amongst the koalas and kangaroos, and shooting pool in one pub towns in the famous Aussie Outback. This is a glimpse into one of the youngest and freewheeling cultures on earth from the eyes of a young mans journal and, twenty years later, his comments with the gift of hindsight. You will take the journey of traveling buddies and their views of traveling versus touristing and their eventual ill-fated foray into the mountains of the Philippine Islands. The original soundtrack is a marvelous audio addition to the travel novel experience as well!
