قراءة المعلومات الكاملة هنا Destinations visited in the book include Marrakech, Fez and the Atlas Mountains in North Africa, Patagonia and the Galapagos Islands, Istanbul, Cappadocia and Antalya in Turkey, the western isles of Mull and Iona, safaris in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and the Serengeti plus, music festivals in Naples and Prague and, of course, England and Australia.


Along the way the two life-long friends encouraged, enraged and entertained each other. Hilary took thousands of photographs and Liz wrote copiously in beautiful bound notebooks.


After sixteen years globetrotting together, have they changed as individuals? ‘Certainly,’ says Hil. ‘Not a jot,’ says Liz.
