Australia - “...I suppose I could say the same things about growing up in Australia, that anyone, growing up anywhere, could say. It is, and always will be my home. To be specific I remember looking out my window over a field of yellow grass and hearing the slow, hot sound of a magpie cawing. “Ahh, Ahh, Ahhhhhh” Later I discovered the colour and beauty of our country, the exciting people there are to meet, the beautiful places, both natural and man made to visit.

Huacachina Oasis Village, Peru - “...Huacachina oasis is a place dripping with tranquillity. I was lucky enough to meet a couple who were traveling there during my time in Peru.

Each evening their home was open to anyone who would like to enter, food was presented and each night a new family was formed. One of compassion, love and understanding. Where judgments were left at the door and equality was everyone’s right. In that family I saw our only future, and in the news, I could see only our end...” - The Memoirs of Miss Lou pg. 189
