Gra Nomad Wanderings

Wednesday, July 12, 2006


As we've travelled around, we've met heaps of people, made new friends, seen sights we'd dreamed of and some we hadn't dreamed of, done things we hadn't known about and had opportunities to do things and go places beyond our plans.
We're now 5 months into our 10 month trip. We've been influenced by many people that we've met. Some recommended a book (or 2), some had a neat saying on the fridge, a cool website, others gave us a recipe or a story. I'd like to give that opportunity now to you. You can either click on comments below or you can email me on - too easy. Here are some suggestions - feel free to use any or all of these. Or others. I'll do a few to show you.

1 Book - have a look at author Brian Pettit (Aussie living on Vancouver Island) and also Willie Weir (intrepid cyclist who's been everywhere and is always worth a read)
2 Saying - Only those who see the invisible can do the impossible.
3 Website -,,
4 Place to visit - Machu Picchu (Peru), Iguacu Falls (Brazil), NW Western Australia.
5 Movie to recommend - Dinner for One, The Day the Earth Stood Still (check out Michael Rennie's speech at the end).
6 Things to do - buy a tandem bike, fly over San Juan islands, visit Torres Starit Islands north of Queensland, cycle Jasper to Banff in the beautiful Canadian Rockies, take your grown children on a trip.
7 Other (story, poem, Bible verse) Ps 121:1-2 I lift up my eyes to the hills - where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

I'll probably think of heaps of other stuff later on. Have a go. Step out of your comfort zone!

Last weekend I read Ps 121 written in chalk on the timber walls of the maid's quarters!!! at Oxley Downs.Think maid was looking for some divine intervention!! (from ABCTV series in Oz)
The show was produced just south of Dubbo for viewing last Oz winter.

read once about a message that said people come into our lives for three reasons, a season, a reason or a lifetime. Guess you are having many people come and go in this season and for a reason, give thanks. Yes, psalm 121. Lots of love bro, alaplalalalalaal

I love this:

"Only those who see the invisible can do the impossible."

Just beautiful. Thanks.
