Still Off Our Rockers By John Hutton
eBook (PDF): $5.00
In the decade since ‘Off Our Rockers’ was published we (a retired empty-nester couple from New Zealand, now in our 60’s) have continued our travel adventures, traversing 5... More > continents and encountering dozens of different cultures. Along the way we have marveled at ancient wonders and wondered at modern marvels, and have been amazed and amused as we experienced a constantly changing mix of fun and frustration, comfort and calamity, humour and hassle, plenty and poverty... a veritable smorgasbord of what is wonderful (mostly) and woeful (sometimes) about the world. In all that time, we have never wanted to cease from our travels in order to settle down as responsible sensible ‘senior citizens’.

As you read this light-hearted account of it, you can decide if we’re crazy, mad, unhinged – indeed, STILL off our rockers.< Less
