Product description

Product Description

Patrick, Meg and their family had built a happy, sustainable life in regional Victoria. But in late 2013, they found themselves craving an adventure: a road trip.

But theirs was a road trip with a difference. With Zephyr (10), Woody (1) and Zero their Jack Russell, they set off on an epic 6,000km year-long cycling journey along Australia’s east coast, from Daylesford to Cape York and back.

Their aim was to live as cheaply as possible − guerrilla camping, hunting, foraging and bartering their permaculture skills, and living on a diet of free food, bush tucker, and the occasional fresh road kill. They spent time in Aboriginal communities, joined an anti-fracking blockade, documented edible plants, and dodged speeding cars and trucks on the country’s most dangerous highways. The Art of Free Travel is the remarkable story of a rule-breaking year of ethical living.

I found this road journey fascinating because of the honesty and strength of conviction of this marvellous family. Also the writing is so very good and outstandingly collaborative. An inspiring unique account of bravery and resilience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aussie Year10 required reading/booklist. I wish. 17 January 2016
By Bec Vandyk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a combination of easily-accessible philosophy and great storytelling - in both the mother-artist voice and the father-artist voice. I would have loved more pics, especially of the foodstuffs - but perhaps that is more appropriate elsewhere. Imagine if these kinds of stories were in the memory banks of all developing Australians. The photos that are part of the book are excellent...

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A story of a family's fairly extreme adventure told so honestly that you can't fail but be drawn into it and relate. Extremely readable, and very inspiring.
