'...enough to make even the most unadventurous of us pack a bag, jump on the bus and join Margaret Whitlam in her other world.'

Sunday Age

'A readily deployed humour, her zest and her disdain for grandiloquence combine to make this a fine read.'

Australian Gourmet Traveller

'What comes through is the verve, the energy, the curiosity and the good humour of the writer, her enjoyment of not only her other world but also its people.'

Australian Book Review

I

For almost ten years Margaret Whitlam led a double life.

Best known as a much-loved public figure and 'National Treasure', Margaret also happens to be a tour leader extraordinaire. Starting at 70, and taking with her hundreds of travellers on group study tours, she has visited almost every corner of the globe.

This is Margaret's story of the people and places encountered in her 'other world'. Brimming with anecdotes and observations and above all Margaret's wit, humour and infectious enthusiasm for faraway places this is a truly delightful way to journey around the world.

Join Margaret as she travels across Siberia, along the Danube and on to Olympia, Rio and Chiang Mai. Share a meal with a friendly family in their Moscow home, dance the evening away in an Istanbul nightclub and walk through the ancient city of Macchu Picchu ... all from the comfort of your favourite armchair and with Margaret Whitlam leading the way.
