Book Launch - Tales of foreign travel that will leave you gasping.

“Painters, Philosophers and Poets Sustain a Seven-year Cycle’’  by Lyn Drummond

Hear Lyn’s amazing travel stories that come from “off the tourist beat’’ examining living in exile, anonymity in foreign countries, reflecting her philosophical views that seven years of our life represent a specific cycle.

 Lyn tells of treading in the footprints of ghosts of famous people who lived in the same places she did and how she learnt amazing previously unknown facts about them; like Dutch painter Van Gogh, Tsar Peter the Great of Russia, Albert Einstein, Ho Chi Minh, Alexander the Great, Mata Hari, the last Creole plantation owner, Laura Locoul Gore, and the Hungarian pioneer of Covid-19 vaccines, Dr Katalin Karikó.

The book is a companion to “Where to Go for a Seven-Year Cycle’’ (republished 2017) based on Lyn’s seven years’ travel experiences working in central & eastern Europe. The seven years span from leaving Sydney in 2002 to work in Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia as an aid agency volunteer, then a three-year stint at the Australian embassy in Budapest Hungary, and later as a teacher and journalist in Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia and Albania.
