Hallo, mein Name ist Patrick Bahtiri.<br /><br />Ich bin 22 Jahre jung, gelernter Stuckateur und komme aus einer <br />Kleinstadt im schönen Nordrhein-Westfalen. Seit einiger Zeit <br />plagt mich ein Gefühl der Unzufriedenheit. Jeder Tag gleicht dem <br />vorherigen und ich habe es satt, ständig Runden in meinem “Teich“ <br />zu drehen. Ich möchte raus in die Welt, um etwas zu er l e b e n !<br />Wenn ich mal mit 85 in einem Schaukelstuhl sitze, möchte<br />ich es nicht bereuen müssen, mein ganzes Leben lang nur in meiner sicheren Heimat geblieben zu sein. Jetzt oder nie!<br /><br />Deswegen habe ich mich dazu entschieden, ein Jahr lang in ein <br />komplett neues Umfeld einzutauchen. „Work and Travel – Australien“ <br />nennt sich mein Vorhaben und ich halte in diesem Tagebuch besondere Eindrücke, Erfahrungen und Erlebnisse fest. Viel Spaß beim Lesen. <br /><br />Ich bin dankbar dafür, dass ich eine solche Chance bekam und froh, sie ergriffen zu haben!<br />

<b>From Book 1:</b> Mary Jane Walker is a writer of historically well-informed travel memoirs that come with an autobiographical flavour. She has been described as a younger, female Bill Bryson, though with her own unique voice. <br> <br>Mary Jane first experienced world travel in an unusual way, as part of the crew on a Chinese junk named La Dame de Canton, the first to be built in the old way in decades. La Dame sailed from Canton, now Guangzhou, to Paris in the early 1980s. Just as in the old days of exploration by sail, the voyage took a couple of years to complete, with many stops along the way for fresh water and supplies, and, yes, for repairs as well. <br> <br>This was the first time a Chinese junk had made such a voyage from East to West. Firmly in the tradition of such hardy adventurers as Thor Heyerdahl and Tim Severin, the voyage of La Dame de Canton showed that the Chinese could have made a voyage of exploration to Europe in earlier times, perhaps passing Vasco da Gama as he went in the other direction. <br> <br>Mary Jane joined the Junk Expedition because she fell in love with the Captain, Niels, then found herself on a Chinese Junk sailing under a state of emergency into Diego Garcia. They had run out of food, had been eating rice and drinking saltwater for ten days; soaked on the boat. The sails were ripped. <br> <br>A Maverick Traveller is the first book in Mary Jane’s Maverick series of 8 travel memoirs. <br> <br>Mary Jane travels with no real plans and decides where to go and see next when she gets there. She likes to explore the culture and history of places that are off the beaten track as well as places that are well known, and to talk to the local people. <br> <br>By the time she sat down to write her books, Mary Jane had travelled the world, from the Arctic Circle to work as a park ranger on an uninhabited island administered by New Zealand’s Department of Conservation. She had spanned two years (mostly naked) on La Dame de Canton; drunk hallucinogenic tea in the Amazon rainforest; and got so lost she ended up at Robin Hood’s hiding-place. <br> <br>Among other adventures, Mary Jane has also walked to Mount Everest Base Camp and seen the work and life of Sherpas; respectfully observed the life of many churches, temples and mosques; traversed various parts of the pilgrimage trails of the Camino de Europa; explored the stunning landscapes of New Zealand; visited remote parts of the Arctic while pulled by a team of dogs; travelled around Cuba the hard way; examined the downfall and renewal of the American inner city, and interviewed protestors at Standing Rock. All the while, meeting amazing people along the way. <br> <br>Her first book, A Maverick Traveller, is Mary Jane’s most autobiographical. A Maverick Traveller also introduces many of the journeys that Mary Jane describes in her later books. <br> <br>As the book’s précis explains, <br> <br>"Whether it was eating dog unintentionally in Indonesia, meeting the rapper 50 Cent before he was famous at a back-packers, or kicking a US nuclear submarine in New Zealand, A Maverick Traveller is filled with the unique stories and experiences of Mary Jane Walker. Mary Jane has travelled to all corners of the globe: to large cities, rural villages and tiny unknown islands off the coast of continents." <br> <br>A Maverick Traveller is the first in an expanding series of books, all with Maverick in their title namely: <br> <br>NZ Way, Cuban Way, Pilgrim Way, USA Way, Inuit Way and the Vikings, Himalayan Way and Australian Way all in 2017. <br> <br>Mary Jane is self published and turned down Literary Agents - she is a Maverick. <br> <br>For more, see: www.a-maverick.com <br>

<b><b>First it was a media sensation. Then it became the #1 international bestseller <i>A Long Way Home</i>. Now it’s <i>Lion</i>, the major motion picture starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, and Rooney Mara—nominated for six Academy Awards!</b><br /> <b><br /> This is the miraculous and triumphant story of Saroo Brierley, a young man who used Google Earth to rediscover his childhood life and home in an incredible journey from India to Australia and back again...</b><br /><br /></b>At only five years old, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train in India. Unable to read or write or recall the name of his hometown or even his own last name, he survived alone for weeks on the rough streets of Calcutta before ultimately being transferred to an agency and adopted by a couple in Australia.<br /><br />Despite his gratitude, Brierley always wondered about his origins. Eventually, with the advent of Google Earth, he had the opportunity to look for the needle in a haystack he once called home, and pore over satellite images for landmarks he might recognize or mathematical equations that might further narrow down the labyrinthine map of India. One day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for and set off to find his family.<br /><i><br />A Long Way Home </i>is a moving, poignant, and inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds. It celebrates the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.

<DIV><B>International Bestseller: The famed travel writer and author of <I>In Patagonia</I> traverses Australia, exploring Aboriginal culture and song—and humanity’s origins. </B><BR /><BR /> Long ago, the creators wandered Australia and sang the landscape into being, naming every rock, tree, and watering hole in the great desert. Those songs were passed down to the Aboriginals, and for centuries they have served not only as a shared heritage but as a living map. Sing the right song, and it can guide you across the desert. Lose the words, and you will die.<BR />  <BR /> Into this landscape steps Bruce Chatwin, the greatest travel writer of his generation, who comes to Australia to learn these songs. A born wanderer, whose lust for adventure has carried him to the farthest reaches of the globe, Chatwin is entranced by the cultural heritage of the Aboriginals. As he struggles to find the deepest meaning of these ancient, living songs, he is forced to embark on a much more difficult journey—through his own history—to reckon with the nature of language itself.<BR />  <BR /> Part travelogue, part memoir, part novel, <I>The Songlines</I> is one of Bruce Chatwin’s final—and most ambitious—works. From the author of the bestselling <I>In Patagonia</I> and <I>On the Black Hill</I>, a sweeping exploration of a landscape, a people, and one man’s history, it is the sort of book that changes the reader forever.<BR />  <BR /><I>This ebook features an illustrated biography of Bruce Chatwin including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.</I><BR />  </DIV>

<b>Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. </b><br /><br />His previous excursion along the Appalachian Trail resulted in the sublime national bestseller <i>A Walk in the Woods</i>. <i>In A Sunburned Country</i> is his report on what he found in an entirely different place: Australia, the country that doubles as a continent, and a place with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. The result is a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiousity.<br /><br />Despite the fact that Australia harbors more things that can kill you in extremely nasty ways than anywhere else, including sharks, crocodiles, snakes, even riptides and deserts, Bill Bryson adores the place, and he takes his readers on a rollicking ride far beyond that beaten tourist path. Wherever he goes he finds Australians who are cheerful, extroverted, and unfailingly obliging, and these beaming products of land with clean, safe cities, cold beer, and constant sunshine fill the pages of this wonderful book. <br /><br />Australia is an immense and fortunate land, and it has found in Bill Bryson its perfect guide.

Na Austrália, visitámos quatro estados e três das maiores e mais belas cidades do país. Surpreendemo-nos com a arquitetura. Cruzámos quatro fusos horários e tirámos fotos no trópico de Capricórnio. Sufocámos nas temperaturas extremas do deserto. Lutámos contra moscas teimosas e inoportunas. Sentimos a força das tempestades tropicais de verão. Encantámo-nos com a vida selvagem, os elegantes casuares e as emas, os cangurus e os koalas, os leões-marinhos e as focas neozelandesas, os enormes morcegos da fruta, e as barulhentas e omnipresentes caturras e catatuas. Abrimos caminho pelo ar denso, húmido e quente das florestas húmidas tropicais e dos mangais. Mergulhámos nos mares quentes da Grande Barreira de Coral e nas águas frias dos mares do sul. Subimos montanhas imponentes, refrescámo-nos em cascatas e dormimos sob as estrelas nas infinitas extensões planas do centro desértico.
