Fran left Australia in 1992 as a naive 18-year-old with no money, no credit card, and before e-mail and the internet were invented. She's a woman solo traveler, who travels by train, car, overland vehicle, bus, Uber, plane, lifts with strangers and the occasional group tour, through Africa, Europe, Middle East, USA and Australia. There's travel humor aplenty, including tales of her "trusty pink umbrella". She's a self proclaimed bad redhead and meets "red-hair-freaks" along the way.
Data is collected on money spent; steps taken; wrinkled-ness of clothes; and hilarious diet details due to a fear of eating alone in restaurants and in speaking foreign languages.
