Product description


Jason's power of language weaves a fascinating tale of his and Ambika's adventures, travels, inserting interesting details about various aspects of the continent's history, its people, its geography and so much more. None of the book is dry reading as the author's ability to enrich each revelation has the reader yearning for more. A wonderful and informative read - Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford (Reader's Favorite)

Red Earth Diaries is an inspiring, surprisingly informative, and wonderfully colourful read, a book that I would pick up again and again, just to read select passages - Reviewed By Eduardo Aduna (Reader's Favorite)

I'm loving reading about Australia from the perspective of a delightful and adventurous couple on a quest to travel and understand their new home - a vast, strange land. I'm thrilled Jason and Ambika answered the call of the wild and are now Aussies - Sarah MacDonald, Author of 'Holy Cow: An Indian Adventure'

Red Earth Diaries reveals that life can indeed be an adventure and taking a break from our normal routines to explore something new is a healthy practice for the soul. Jason smoothly switches between relating his experiences and interesting facts about the places he visited. The lifelike descriptions provided give as close an experience as one can get from a book. Red Earth Diaries is a must-read for anyone that wishes to experience a daring and inspiring journey - Reviewed by Foluso Falaye (Reader's Favorite)

Author Jason Rebello brings together many different genres and influences of non-fiction to provide an educational and entertaining work. In terms of a memoir, this is a truly inspiring tale of migrants coming from India with dreams of a totally different life, and this element is narrated tenderly and with great attention to detail in the prose. Overall, I would definitely recommend Red Earth Diaries to fans of travel writing and inspirational memoirs everywhere - Reviewed by K.C. Finn (Reader's Favorite)

The author's travel adventures and his discovery of the inner self, as well as the outer world, make this different from the usual travel book. Apart from discovering Australia, the author's travel adventures and stories teach readers a lot about living life to the fullest. This is one of the best travel books I have read in recent times because it is not only about discovering a place but also about discovering the self and improving for the better - Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan (Reader's Favorite)

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Jason Rebello was born in Mumbai and embarked on his first sea voyage as an apprentice cadet in 1993 when he was still in his teens. His love for the sea kept calling him back for more and he spent two decades sailing around the globe, in various ascending capacities until he rose to the rank of a Captain.

His love for the sea is matched equally by his passion for backpacking and travels. He started travelling in 1999; his first trip was an impulsive solo trip to an offbeat destination within his home state. He was a changed man after that trip, jumping fearlessly onto the backpacking bandwagon, and he has not looked back ever since!

Jason is equally driven with a strong desire to delve into all topics related to spirituality, plain living, zen, self-improvement and transcendentalism.

Jason loves writing about his experiences and he has an active travel blog -, the only travel website which does not talk about travel, but uses it as an analogy to describe our own personal journeys through life. After all, his tag line borrows from the famous quote from R.W. Emerson - "It is about the journey and not the destination"

Jason migrated to Australia in 2014 on a Permanent Resident Visa along with his wife and are now Australian citizens. His writing journey started when he penned his first self-help book - Aussie Migrant: Money in 2016. A few books in the same series followed, and he continues to help fellow migrants by sharing his thoughts (and books) on his website -

Red Earth Diaries - is Jason's first travelogue in the travel genre, and as he likes to remind everyone, will not be his last, knowing his penchant for travel.

When he’s not writing, Jason spends his spare time running, climbing mountains, travelling, and enjoying days out with his wife and children.
