The Calm Before Storm

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Aug 9, 2011 - Travel - 192 pages
This book has it all, travel, adventure, romance, comedy, drama, sex and speedway racing. It is a story about living our dream of traveling Australia and the world, at the same time pursuing our great sporting love, speedway. From our caravan travels through Northern New South Wales and Southern Queensland to the lush, green hills of the Emerald Isle, the historic ruins of Italy, the desert climes of Dubai, our visit to see our daughter in South Africa and to be there for the birth of our first grandchild. We had such an adventure. But, this was before the Global Financial Crisis and before the collapse of Townsville-based STORM Financial in whose hands we had trustfully placed our financial future. Little did we know what devastation lay ahead. Still, my story here, covers a much calmer time and will hopefully entice budding retirees to be a little adventurous when planning future travels. It was fun while it lasted.

I have read this book and enjoyed it a lot. It is a simple read and should be an inspiration for intending retirees who are wondering about travelling during their retirement. The book has many different aspects of travel, caravanning, overseas flying and driving, etc. It's a good, fun read. These people must have had a great time. Good on them.
