United we stand

I know it’s a naive question but sometimes we wonder – why can’t we all get along?

There is so much hatred, greed, envy and intolerance in the world, it sometimes feels as if we are doomed to fail as a species.

Then we look back at our Wandering Memories, where we shared adventures with a host of strangers, from all types of backgrounds, cultures and religions.

  • We have prayed with Mormons
  • We have danced with African tribes
  • We have eaten with Buddhist Monks
  • We have drunk with the Jewish
  • We have spent the night in an Bedouin Camp
  • We have traveled with Muslims
  • We have sung with Hindus
  • We have cried with Christians
  • We have experienced the wonder of the churches of Russia, the temples of Thailand and Mexico, the Shrines of Japan, Indonesia and China, the Mosques of Arabia and the traditional villages of African tribes.
  • We have shared experiences with the Irish, Israeli, Spanish, Chinese, Arabian, American, Indonesian, Thai, Japanese, Scottish, German, French, Italian, Afrikaans, Namibian, Brazilian, Turkish, Swedish, Slavic, Nordic, Australian, Malaysian, Mexican, Canadian, Polynesian and even Fijian (to name a few).

We don’t define a person by their religion, ethnic background or ideological views. We accept the differences between us and embrace them as incredible opportunities to learn.

Don’t get me wrong, we are far from perfect. We may not  understand or believe the same thing, but we try to respect the view (as long as it’s not full of hatred, disrespect, superiority or intolerance).

To us, it doesn’t matter what you believe, it matters who you are as a person!



Why can’t we all put aside our petty differences? and work together to better ourselves and the world in which we live.

Here’s to our cultural differences, understanding, accepting and hopefully one day uniting.

      1. Drive up the centre, via Adelaide and Coober Pedy. Three nights at Uluru then Kings Canyon before exploring the Macdonnell Ranges. Then we’re doing the Plenty, cutting across into outback Queensland then home along the east coast.
