Kookaburras, Cuppas, & Kangaroos by S Bavey BLOG TOUR @SueBavey @rararesources #KookaburrasCuppasandKangaroos #BookSpotlight

Fuelled by her spirit for adventure and with her £10.00 ticket in hand, Elizabeth Isle leaves 1960s England, determined to see it all, not just Australia and New Zealand, but as much as she can on the way, too. 

She surrenders her passport to the Australian government and must find work to support herself on the other side of the world from her family and friends. 

There can be no going back for two years. 

Join this intrepid young woman on the adventure of her lifetime.

 Share her amazing experiences, discover what exotic animals await, get travel tips and meet her new friends through her letters home and over plenty of cups of tea. 

Beware - the travel bug might prove infectious!

Kookaburras, Cuppas & Kangaroos by S Bavey was published in December 2023. I'm delighted to shine spotlight on the book today as part of the Blog Tour organised by Rachel's Random Resources. 

Sue Bavey (writing as S. Bavey) a British mother of two teenagers, now living in
Franklin, Massachusetts, having moved to the US in 2003. 
Writing as S. Bavey, she won a gold award from Readers’ Favorite for her grandfather’s biography: Lucky Jack (1894 – 2000), which she wrote during COVID lockdown. 
She also has a number of non-fiction stories published in various anthologies.
