Back Packing at an Older Age This book is about my 6-month adventure, back packing and working around Australia, which was a dream of mine since migrating to Australia in 1996. Eventually becoming an Australian citizen. This type of down to earth adventure travel gives one a totally different perspective about the country landscape and about the travelers from different countries that do this type of adventure. I hope one will get excited as I did when they read this book about my adventure and that no matter how old you are one can have an experience of a lifetime.
