Barbara Haddrill’s Babs 2 Brisbane – the story of her overland journey from Wales to Australia to be a bridesmaid – has been published and is receiving widespread coverage. Last friday John Ingham featured it in his environmental column in The Daily Express. Babs 2 Brisbane is an amazing book. Even if you are not that interested in overland travel you’ll find it an interesting account of the type of decision making you have to make as a committed environmentalist. What is the right thing to do? Fly or not to fly? If you are interested in travel you’ll enjoy the story and be interested in reading up on how to make the same or similar journeys yourself.
