I Travelled Across Remote Australia Audiobook

I Travelled Across Remote Australia

Author: Dreamtime Audio Books Narrator: Mysterious Dreamtime Man Release Date: June 2017

I travelled across remote Australia to 3 different states visiting several remote Indigenous communities to see how they lived in regards to creating sustainable livelihoods but also how they used western technology to survive. Again out of respect for Indigenous law of Australia I can't mention any names of people given that people have passed away. I looked at several main issues in their lives to do with energy, planning, communication, health, housing, water and transport, as we all need these to survive, but for these Indigenous people in remote Australia surviving can be a bit more difficult given that they live in such remote places in Australia. I travelled to 3 main regions of Australia, the Kimberly region of Western Australia, Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory and Cape York in far north Queensland. We look at how dirt roads are constructed in the Kimberly given that they have massive floods from the wet season that can cut off communities for months and how they build dirt roads from Black soil so it's compacted like cement. We hear about the importance of looking after environmental health in Arnhem Land and also how ladies make their bush medicines from plants from the bush when people get sick. We hear from a man who lives on Devil Island who used to use diesel generators but it became too expensive buying fuel, so he purchased his own wind turbine from another state known as Victoria so he could have power from the wind on his homeland. We visit the remote community of Port Stewart on the far north coast of Cape York where people recently moved back to their homelands after being forced off their land for mining gold several decades ago. We also have some fun and play football with the kids in Port Stewart. We fly to the Tiwi Islands to hear about how the ladies make their own traditional clothes for the tourists who visit their island. Their designs are unique stories of their 'Dreaming stories 'how their land was formed thousands of years ago from different animals such as the crocodile. We go back to Arnhem Land to the community of Ramanginning where they have a program called ' caring for country,' and we also look at contaminated water, how their water bore was fixed so they could have clean drinking water. We visit the western desert where ladies talk about how they had no telephone to call for help if someone got sick. They wanted to put pressure on service providers to get their telephone connected. We hear them talk in their traditional language so we had to get an interpreter to translate what they were saying. The Wirapunda family of Dhurrupitjapi Homelands in Arnhem Land talk about true reconciliation in Australia where their family and the McCall family had a conflict between their great grandparents decades ago not understanding each other's laws, but both families came together and are now good friends helping each other. Finally, we hear from one the last great stockmen of Cape York. How he rode on horses rounding up cattle and getting them to market. He used to go through large rivers with his cattle with large crocodiles around him, as Cape York has some of the biggest crocodiles on earth

50 Great American Places: Essential Historic Sites Across the U.S. Audiobook

50 Great American Places: Essential Historic Sites Across the U.S.

Author: Brent D. Glass Narrator: Norman Dietz Release Date: August 2016

From Massachusetts to Florida to Washington to California, 50 Great American Places takes you on a journey through our nation's history. Sharing the inside stories of sites as old as Mesa Verde (Colorado) and Cahokia (Illinois) and as recent as Silicon Valley (California) and the Mall of America (Minnesota), each essay provides the historical context for places that represent fundamental American themes: the compelling story of democracy and self-government; the dramatic impact of military conflict; the powerful role of innovation and enterprise; the inspiring achievements of diverse cultural traditions; and the defining influence of the land and its resources. Sites you would expect-in Boston, New York, and Washington, DC-are here, as well as plenty of surprises, such as the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, or Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, or the Village Green in Hudson, Ohio; less obvious places that, together with the more well-known destinations, collectively tell the story of America. For families who want to take a trip that is both educational and entertaining, for history enthusiasts, or anyone curious about our country's greatest places, this book is the perfect guide.

The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot Audiobook

The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot

Author: Robert MacFarlane Narrator: Roy McMillan Release Date: September 2012

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Robert MacFarlane's The Old Ways, a major new book from one of Britain's finest nature writers about landscape and the human heart. Read by Roy McMillan. In The Old Ways Robert Macfarlane sets off from his Cambridge home to follow the ancient tracks, holloways, drove-roads and sea paths that form part of a vast network of routes criss-crossing the British landscape and its waters, and connecting them to the continents beyond. The result is an immersive, enthralling exploration of the ghosts and voices that haunt old paths, of the stories our tracks keep and tell, of pilgrimage and ritual, and of songlines and their singers. Above all this is a book about people and place: about walking as a reconnoitre inwards, and the subtle ways in which we are shaped by the landscapes through which we move. Told in Macfarlane's distinctive and celebrated voice, the book folds together natural history, cartography, geology, archaeology and literature. His tracks take him from the chalk downs of England to the bird-islands of the Scottish northwest, and from the disputed territories of Palestine to the sacred landscapes of Spain and the Himalayas. Along the way he walks stride for stride with a 5000-year-old man near Liverpool, follows the 'deadliest path in Britain', sails an open boat out into the Atlantic at night, and crosses paths with walkers of many kinds - wanderers, wayfarers, pilgrims, guides, shamans, poets, trespassers and devouts. He discovers that paths offer not just means of traversing space, but also of feeling, knowing and thinking. The old ways lead us unexpectedly to the new, and the voyage out is always a voyage inwards.

The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold: Adventures Along the Iron Curtain Trail Audiobook

The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold: Adventures Along the Iron Curtain Trail

Author: Tim Moore Narrator: Tim Moore Release Date: June 2017

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold, written and read by Tim Moore. 'Bill Bryson on two wheels' Independent Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his 'so-small bicycle' are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.

The Danube: A Journey Upriver from the Black Sea to the Black Forest

Author: Nick Thorpe Narrator: Nick Thorpe Release Date: April 2019

The author takes us on an unexpected journey up the Danube, where we encounter a remarkable and unfamiliar world The magnificent Danube both cuts across and connects central Europe, flowing through and alongside ten countries: Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, and Germany. Traveling its full length from east to west, against the river's flow, Nick Thorpe embarks on an inspiring year-long journey that leads to a new perspective on Europe today. Thorpe's account is personal, conversational, funny, immediate, and uniquely observant-everything a reader expects in the best travel writing. Immersing himself in the Danube's waters during daily morning swims, Thorpe likewise becomes immersed in the histories of the lands linked by the river. He observes the river's ecological conditions, some discouraging and others hopeful, and encounters archaeological remains that whisper of human communities sustained by the river over eight millennia. Most fascinating of all are the ordinary and extraordinary people along the way-the ferrymen and fishermen, workers in the fields, shopkeepers, beekeepers, waitresses, smugglers and border policemen, legal and illegal immigrants, and many more. For readers who anticipate their own journeys on the Danube, as well as those who only dream of seeing the great river, this book will be a unique and treasured guide.

Andrew Zimmern visits Japan: Chapter 14 from THE BIZARRE TRUTH Audiobook

Andrew Zimmern visits Japan: Chapter 14 from THE BIZARRE TRUTH

Author: Andrew Zimmern Narrator: Andrew Zimmern Release Date: September 2009

Andrew Zimmern, the host of The Travel Channel’s hit series Bizarre Foods, has an extraordinarily well-earned reputation for traveling far and wide to seek out and sample anything and everything that’s consumed as food globally, from cow vein stew in Bolivia and giant flying ants in Uganda to raw camel kidneys in Ethiopia, putrefied shark in blood pudding in Iceland and Wolfgang Puck's Hunan style rooster balls in Los Angeles. For Zimmern, local cuisine — bizarre, gross or downright stomach turning as it may be to us -- is not simply what’s served at mealtime. It is a primary avenue to discovering what is most authentic — the bizarre truth — about cultures everywhere. In this section, Zimmern assuages his craving for grilled lizard and frog sashimi.

Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James Audiobook

Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James

Author: David Downie Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: January 2014

Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, and health crises, David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk across France to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue Saint-Jacques then trekking 750 miles south to Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes 72 days on Roman roads and pilgrimage paths—a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading to the sanctuary of Saint James the Greater. It is best known as El Camino de Santiago de Compostela—“The Way” for short. The object of any pilgrimage is an inward journey manifested in a long, reflective walk. For Downie, the inward journey met the outer one: a combination of self-discovery and physical regeneration. More than 200,000 pilgrims take the highly commercialized Spanish route annually, but few cross France. Downie had a goal: to go from Paris to the Pyrenees on age-old trails, making the pilgrimage in his own maverick way.
