Granny Smith

The original Granny Smith was in fact more famous in her lifetime for being the local midwife than she was for her now internationally acclaimed green apples, hence her name. In 1868, Maria Ann Smith, then 69 years old, found the seedling growing by a creek on her property near Sydney. She believed that the seedling had grown from French crab apples. Granny Smith began to cultivate this new apple tree. With patience and resilience, from little things, big things grow, including love.

Travel Your Way – (Ebook)

USD $9.99

Click here for Paperback | Audiobook


Travel is the opposite of prejudice; it is curiosity, openness, and connection. Now, when our world is in flux, travel matters more than ever. How we travel has changed, but why we travel has not. With barriers and restrictions coming and going at a dizzying rate, now is the time to learn how to make the most out of whatever travel opportunities we are able to seize.

With the right techniques and attitude, travel can open our eyes to new cultures and dispel stereotypes. It can force us out of our comfort zone. However, the benefits travel can unlock – increased understanding of the world, greater courage, better connection between cultures – don’t come automatically. Truly experiencing foreign cultures is something we need to work at.

From advice on how to accurately understand new places to practical tips on meeting with locals, overcoming the language barrier, and asking the right questions, Travel Your Way shows you how to discover the world on your own terms. The result is a more rewarding journey and a greater sense of connection to everywhere you go, whether you’re on a business trip, or backpacking across the globe.

Learn how to make the most of every place you go by seeing the world with open, curious eyes, plan with excitement for future journeys, and reflect with greater appreciation on the travels you have experienced so far.


“A serious-minded and thoughtful engagement with some of the joys and contradictions that travel brings to light, illustrated by rich vignettes from the author’s own adventures on the road. An engaging, articulate and enjoyable guide

Nick Hunt, author of  Walking the Woods and the Water, Where the Wild Winds Are and Outlandish.”
