    When Sue Williams set out on a 10-year series of journeys around the world, she expected glamour, excitement, a leisurely education. She simply didn't bargain for disaster, spine-tingling terror, and the kind of mind-numbing embarrassment that confronted her at nearly every turn.

    Neil says: "Intrepid Traveller"

    If you could sum up Getting There in three words, what would they be?

    Courageous, curious, persistent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Getting There?

    Pretty well all of it.

    Harrowing bus rides, questionable accommodation and food, and most of all the author's continuous necessity to fend off men determined to "protect' her in this "dangerous" place. The latter is something that couples or males do not have to deal with nearly as often. The author dealt with more as a rule than an exception and did it with grace and guile, I was truly impressed.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Hulme – was your favorite?

    The author. She is to be admired as a truly intrepid traveller.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction was one of admiration for the single woman who travelled the world alone and yet never lost her sense of wonder, good humour and and always looking for the best part of people and places.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a traveller you are bound to enjoy this book.
