KITE STRINGS OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS:
A Woman's Travel Odyssey

Author: Laurie Gough

This is a passionate journey of love, discovery, and serendipity that radiates from a remote beach in Fiji to the far reaches of the globe. Gough boldly embraces the pilgrim in us with wisdom beyond her years. Her story is heartwarming, funny, and wise...a profound testament to the lessons of the road.

Gough is the epitome of a traveller with "pluck," who doesn't shrink from the rigors, lessons, or danger of the pilgrim's road, but embraces them with enthusiasm and humor. Through the eyes of a young woman living on a beach in Fiji with new friends and new love, we roam the world from Malaysia to Morocco, from the California redwoods to the Italian Alps, and see for ourselves what the blessings of travel can be for a voyager with an open mind and a very big heart.

Gough boldly embraces the pilgrim's road with wisdom beyond her years. In Fiji, she falls in love with a young islander, meets his Giant Aunts and evil Uncle Vix, eats gargantuan meals, drinks kava, and shares stories of her travels while learning about life under the stars of the Southern Cross.

While visiting the labyrinthine city of Fez in Morocco, she turns the tables on a carpet salesman who attempts an ancient scam. In Malaysia, she fends off the devil himself in the guise of a Penang taxi driver. On the back of a potbellied bike's motorcycle, she roars across the breadth of Canada with hardly a moment to admire the landscape. In the Italian Alps, she sees the dark side of wanderlust, and the transformation of her own innocent spirit of adventure. More than a travelog, this is a passionate and inspiring voyage of discovery.
