Yank Down Under: A Drink and a Look Around Australia recounts my (mis)adventures and encounters with the characters, reptiles, food, sports, and beverages of Australia during my three years living there. Cruising the crocodile infested waters of the Northern Territory with an Indigenous tour guide; diving on the Great Barrier Reef; wine tasting in the Adelaide Hills; staggering through a drunken day of Australian Rules Football at the famed Melbourne Cricket Ground—there’s something for everyone, and plenty of dry wit to keep the story moving.
Plus, it’s a guide book, too! After each section, I offer a summary of my must-see spots and the tourist traps to avoid. Yank Down Under is designed to be “info-tainment”—a travel guide that will make you laugh, share some knowledge of Aussie culture and history, and maybe even help you plan your trip.
