We had a piano that no one played, but it must have had some impact on me because at the age of seven I cited it as my favorite instrument.

Off Our Rockers: Light-Hearted Travel Tales for Empty- Nesters and Those with a Penchant for Adventure By John Hutton
eBook (ePub): $5.00
Every one thought we were a bit crazy or terribly brave... or both. In 2002 my wife and I, a supposedly normal middle-aged 'empty-nester' NZ couple, quit our jobs, sold up everything and headed off... More > on an open-ended backpacking adventure to explore the world, beginning in Asia.
