Description of this Book
From her first life-changing solo trip to Australia as a young graduate, Rosita Boland was enthralled by travel. In the last thirty years she has visited some of the most remote parts of the globe carrying little more than a battered rucksack and a diary.Documenting nine journeys from nine different moments in her life, Elsewhere reveals how exploring the world - and those we meet along the way - can dramatically shape the course of a person?s life. From death-defying bus journeys through Pakistan to witnessing the majestic icescapes of Antarctica to putting herself back together in Bali, Rosita experiences moments of profound joy and endures deep personal loss.In a series of jaw-dropping, illuminating and sometimes heart-breaking essays, Elsewhere is a book that celebrates the life well-travelled in all its messy and wondrous glory.
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Beautiful. A rucksack of memory gems that left my heart sore and full of wanderlust. * Ruth Fitzmaurice, author of I Found My Tribe * Elsewhere is the perfect title for a travel book that is about more than just destinations. It's about location and dislocation. And it is the sense of being away from the mundane world that makes the book special. * Michael Harding, author of Staring at Lakes *
