After receiving an unsettling medical diagnosis, Elaine Schnelle, a 61-year-old divorced, retired grandma and psychic medium, decides that the only way she can achieve her dream of driving around Australia, is to do it now — and alone. Overcoming fears and self-doubt, she takes a leap of faith and embarks on the trip of a lifetime taking the reader along with her on her exciting adventure.
This book provides a practical travel guide of how the author planned her trip — including deciding what vehicle she will drive, the plotting of her itinerary, a description of her travels, the fears and challenges on the way, the interesting people she met, as well as maps, photos, and road details so that the reader, if desired, can drive a similar trip. It also gives the reader who cannot do the trip, the opportunity to live and experience the journey vicariously through the eyes of the author. And for people, especially women who are like the author living on their own who have given up on their dream because they thought they could not do it by themselves, this book inspires and shows them how to do it.
“Around Australia: One Woman, One Soul, One Dream” will also appeal to those who are looking for a spiritual memoir book, that shares insights on how to be in the present moment and interpret the signs from the Universe, so that they can live a guided life and on purpose.
This book inspires people to say Yes to life, and Never give up on their dreams.
