So many people from so many different countries, cultures, colours, creeds have made the beautiful shire of Byron Bay their home. From the white sandy beaches and underwater national parks to rainforests and waterfalls there are gypsies like myself both young and old at every turn. These, and others from all around the world are the people who made this book of traveller’s tales. Not just the writers but also the characters of each of these fantastic stories. Some happy some sad, some soft some hard. Stories that may end up in jail in a third world country or nearly dead in a deep dark jungle. All with a sense of adventure and a sense of humour which are two important attributes any traveller must have.
