Across The Sea

These words have been a long time coming, so I'd like to kick it off with a quote from one of the world's most influential authors.

'I was surprised, as always, be how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility.' - Jack Kerouac, On The Road

Kyber Pass, Pakistan (taken by Max Brooking, 1988)
It's already been established that your good Sheep is Australian and we children of Straya, much like the people of Madagascar, New Zealand, Japan etc. are all awarded a similar disadvantage; we're water locked.

International travel isn't easily achieved for us (not like everyone in Europe for example) but when it is, so much can run through us; fear, excitement, sadness and many others and all for various reasons. That said, at the end we're all left feeling a great deal of satisfaction and that's what we pack our bags for, isn't it?

Petra, Jordan (taken by Max Brooking, 1988)
The Sheep has only left his shore twice and both times it was rewarding, and he thinks it's time to share his stories, as others have with him. These are the seeds growing within us that we want to see bloom. That's pretty much said with the pics of the Middle East a loving and mad uncle was happy to lend.

So, it's the hope you good readers stick around for the tales to come. You're still gonna hear about Australia, but it was always the plan to go far and that's where we finally are.

Happy travels!
