I purchased your Welcome to Country, A Travel Guide for my Step daughter and Husband. I can't write a review but I can let you know it was very gratefully received. They have been in the process of outfitting a small bus for the last couple of years so eventually they can travel around Australia. This book will make for a perfect travel companion and source of information. Thank you ever so much.
I've posted an email to your company telling you how happy I am with my order.
