WALK­ING FEAT

Australian Geographic - - Your Say -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Terra Roam on her cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tion by land of Aus­tralia, spon­sored by the Aus­tralian Geo­graphic So­ci­ety. My mum’s cousin Neville West­wood was the first per­son to com­plete the cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tion by mo­tor ve­hi­cle, in a Citroën, in 1925. The re­stored ve­hi­cle is in a mo­tor mu­seum in Canberra. Sounds like Terra had a hard slog. Hope she gets the recog­ni­tion she de­serves. Mind­ful­ness is good: I used to work in the bush and notic­ing the mi­cro and macro helps men­tal health. Best wishes Terra and AG.
