Rough Ride to the East

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
‘A funny thing happened on my way to the billabong…' Sure did. In fact, a lot of funny things happened on the 3rd Altrincham Rover Crew Australasian Expedition fifty years ago.
Here's how my expedition from the UK to Australia missed its target by 5000 miles and ended up in Tokyo. In an old van it was a rough ride - few roads, but enough interesting memories and amusing stories for a lifetime

About Ivan Brackin

Born in Cheshire, England, in l941. Left those sunny 'hic' shores in l963 to drive to Australia. Should have bought a map. Made it to Karachi and eventually by foot and boat to Japan where I started a small ad agency. Wrote ad copy for 35 years and typed out about a dozen or more books on an IBM Selectric. Mostly humor accompanied by my cartoons. Discovered computers two years ago and now converting dusty manuscripts to the books the world has been denied for thirty years, using the marvelous opportunity presented by Smashwords.
Now retired on a small island called Yoron. Enjoy gardening, messing about with a boat, writing, Googling, golf on a sweet little nine holer, par 27 , and ogling at the marvelous sea.

Review by: Naomi Brackin on May 28, 2011 :
I enjoyed reading this book very much. You can sense the difference in time, how different it must have been back in the 60's. It's probably impossible to travel like this today. I found myself laughing at the English humor which I haven't done in a while from reading.
Highly recommend this book to people who like adventure and different culture.
