#MarchIntoOz #WideOpenRoad 🚲Books about traveling & wide open roads are even better when they contain food.😋Anik See journeyed through 12 countries, riding her bike, meeting people & enjoying food. We read this one for my virtual foodie book club in 2010 & I cooked 2 Thai-inspired dishes-one from the book & one from my own travels there.

Mahalo for another fun photo challenge & the exposure to some great Aussie tunes! @Cinfhen & @Lizpixie 🎼❤️

Gezemice I love your food pics and recipes. My kind of food. Lots of soups and greens! 5y

...of pines and cedar-choked backwoods.

Texas Ranger Darren Matthews seems to be spending most of this book on the #wideopenroad. I doubt he'll be home before the end of the book. And he's seen the odd thing(!) from brhind the wheel of his truck.

Wow, that month went quickly! Thanks for the challenge @Lizpixie @Cinfhen #marchintooz

Cinfhen Love this ❤️ 5y
Cathythoughts Great post 💫💫💫 5y

A great way to end #MarchintoOz
I'm probably a little bit too keen on travel writing - some may say obsessed. I can't pick a favourite so I'm going with one of the modern greats, Paul Theroux.
Thanks for organising @Cinfhen @Lizpixie ... another great month of fun, inventive prompts.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Loved Hotel Honolulu! 5y
Cinfhen Thanks so much for joining in all month 💋I enjoyed seeing your choices🙌🏻 5y

After 3 decades serving as a butler in England, Stevens takes a trip down the #wideopenroad and ends up contemplating his life and his service as a butler. Wonderful book!

Cinfhen Still on my TBR...not rushing to read it 😬 5y
emilyhaldi @Cinfhen it‘s a great book, so well written.. and yet, not a book I would goad someone else into reading bc it kinda has to be the right time right place for each, I think... If that makes any sense 😊 5y
Cinfhen Yes!! I totally get that😁 5y
Cathythoughts Anthony Hopkins plays a great James Stevens .... 😭 5y

A lot of time spent on the road in this one. A fitting end to #marchintooz as it‘s set in Australia.
Thanks to Cindy and Liz for this month 😁❤️

Cathythoughts Perfect 👍🏻 5y
Cinfhen Oooh, first one to post about this book...but there‘s no blurb!!! I‘m curious to hear more..... 5y
Lizpixie I hope you come visit some day. You‘ll take home some of that red dirt in your clothes, it never comes out because it has so much pigment. 5y

TrishB @Cinfhen I must have read before Litsy! It‘s a good, solid read and like The Dry you get the full Australia impact- weather, outback etc 5y
TrishB @Lizpixie definitely somewhere I‘d like to go one day ❤️ 5y
artkavanagh I‘m definitely going to read this some day. Not putting it on my to read stack yet, though: I don‘t want it to get too overwhelming. The author is taking part in a public event (interview) in about 10 days‘s time. I‘d like to get to that. 5y

#MarchIntoOz Can‘t believe this month is over!! Thank you @Lizpixie for being the ultimate Aussie roadie...treating us to a fabulous tour of awesome music and local flavor 🤟🏽Posting 2 books I‘m looking forward to reading from my TBR featuring a #WideOpenRoad 🚘Don‘t forget tomorrow begins #Aprella the music of Coachella hosted by @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola should be another #WildRide ❤️❤️❤️

Lizpixie Thank you @Cinfhen I‘ve had an awesome month! Being able to bring a spotlight to facts about my country that aren‘t as well known has been such a privilege, most people think kangaroos & beaches when they think Australia, but there‘s so much more to discover. Like the Art Deco hotels in the Blue Mountains that were the place to be in the 30s, The sinkhole in Mount Gambier in SA that‘s been turned into the most gorgeous garden. The cafes in 👇👇👇 5y
Mdargusch It‘s been a great month @Lizpixie and @Cinfhen 👍🏼 I‘ve loved learning about the music of Australia 5y
Lizpixie Lygon St Melbourne that have the best coffee in Oz, Kangaroo Island off the coast of SA that produces so much gourmet food along with the Barossa Valley in SA, that produces some fine wines, Broome in far north WA with its history of pearl divers, Kakadu National Park in NT with jaw dropping vistas, the huge cane farms in Qld in the red dirt you could paint with, don‘t forget Tasmania with its lavender farms. My country is amazing. Come visit!🇦🇺 (edited) 5y

16-year-old Mim Malone is on a solo trek to get to her mom by hopping onto a Greyhound bus. On the journey, she befriends other kindred souls and it becomes a road trip of self discovery.
