When I wrote my first book, Journeys of a Lifetime, in 2004, it reflected how dreams of mine, of visiting unknown places in the United Kingdom, countries across the North Sea in Europe, and seemingly far off continents of America, Africa, Asia, and Australia became reality. That was mainly due to the advent of air travel, package holidays, and the massive growth of international travel in the second half of the twentieth century. Nine years on from that book, my traveling has continued, and in that time, having seen the arrival of grandchildren, naturally they have joined in some of the journeys. Although places visited in that time include some return trips to old favorites, this book reflects only the new places visited. In particular India, the Middle East, the Far East, and nearer home Eastern Europe, all are featured more this time. Also, as we now have an Aussie part of the family, naturally Australia is also a regular destination. Although the United Kingdom is much smaller in area than the others, it is packed with wonderful places to visit, so trips at home are still often on the itinerary. In addition, cruising has taken off in the last decade a bit like package deals to Europe did in the 1960s and has added a new dimension to the journeys made. Cruises are featured several times in this book. More Journeys of a Lifetime reflects the further growth in long-haul travel and the massive increase of cruising. Hope you enjoy my further travels around this small world of ours, going on from those early dreams of mine and continuing to do so!

When I wrote my first book Journeys of a Lifetime in 2004, it reflected how dreams of mineof visiting unknown places in the UK, countries across the North Sea in Europe, and seemingly far-off continents of America, Africa, Asia, and Australiabecame a reality. That was mainly due to the advent of air travel, package holidays, and the massive growth of international travel in the second half of the twentieth century. Nine years on from that book, in my second book, our traveling had continued, and in that time, having seen the arrival of four grandchildren, naturally they have joined in some of the journeys. At that time, our fourth grandchild just made the book with her name and date and place of birth. Naturally, there was a need for another book so that she, as well as her brother and cousins, will all be able to read as they get older about their grandparents travels, and in particular, some of which included them. Although places visited in the three years since the last book include some return trips to old favorites, this book reflects only the new places visited. In particular, India, the Middle East, the Far East, Eastern Europe, and nearer home the beautiful Northeast England, it reflects the visits of the grandchildren, featured more this time. As we now have two grandchildren living in the Costa del Sol, as well as the Aussie part of the family, Spain, and Australia are now regular destinations. Although the UK is much smaller in area than those two countries, it is packed with wonderful places to visit, so trips at home are still often very much included in our travels. Added to that, cruising has taken off in the last decade a bit like package deals to Europe did in the 1960s and has provided a very enjoyable new dimension to the journeys made. Cruises are featured several times in this book. More Journeys of a Lifetime and now Even More Journeys of a Lifetime reflect the further growth in long-haul travel and the massive increase in cruising. Hope you enjoy my further travels around this small world of ours, going on from those early dreams of mine and continuing to do so!

Six well known Australians embark on the journey of a lifetime as they travel to their family's country of origin, most for the first time and with a parent or grandparent who had given up hope of ever returning home. Inspired by the overwhelming response to a unique documentary conceived by popular actor and presenter Eden Gaha, journalist Julietta Jameson follows in the footsteps of Eden as he visits Lebanon for the first time with his 95-year-old grandfather; actress and comedian Mary Coustas ('Effie') to Greece with her mother and brother; actor and singer Jay Laga'aia to Samoa with his mother and his young son; Sydney Roosters rugby league star Craig Wing to the Phillipines with his mother; author and doctor Cindy Pan to China with her mother; and singer Wendy Matthews to Canada for a reunion with her mother and brother. Many of these personal pilgrimages resulted in highly emotional reunions as the children are welcomed for the first time - and their parents return home after literally a lifetime away. The result is a poignant and moving journey of discovery that will strike a chord with the millions of Australians descended from immigrants - and anyone who has ever felt the pull of the most binding ties of all: family.
