Thumbs Up Australia: Hitching the Outback

Thumbs Up Australia: Hitchhiking the Outback - Tom Parry Parry and his girlfriend set off with the intention of hitchhiking the whole way around Australia, and bar one coach journey they manage to do it.They manage to meet the whole spectrum of people in Australia, from the single mum to the road train driver. Most of the time they are humbled by the generosity and welcome attitude of the people, but there are one of two dodgy individuals that they meet!Really enjoyed it, but I didn't think that the historical references to John McDouall Stuart, one of the first guy to transverse Australia, were completely necessary all the way through
