More about the Book


Chanticleer International


Bothersome insects, delightful creatures, and the man who transforms potholes from death traps to works of art...

Meet these and more in this humorous, informative and reflective travel tale.

They say that time flies – and it certainly did for the author. After five years in her Australian birthplace, where she discovered long-lost family, experienced new lifestyles, and was regularly used by mozzies for target practice, Alannah Foley returned to England, the country where she was raised.

However, what she thought would be a short visit turned into a yawning chasm of two decades.

Finally, she decided it was time to go back and set out on a new journey of discovery – but with some trepidation. After all this time, how much had things changed? And would it be for the better or worse?

Join the author as she traces over old haunts and new vistas, and encounters a host of bothersome as well as delightful creatures in this humorous, informative and reflective travel tale set in sunny – and sometimes not so sunny! – Australia.
