Author recounts 50-year adventure across Australia with wife and family in new book

Book Release: My Adopted Country: Australia. CANBERRA, Australia – Leaving post-war Germany behind, Erwin Feeken and his wife sought adventure and exploration in a new land – and so began their 50-year adventure through Australia. In his new book, “My Adopted Country: Australia,” Feeken chronicles his family’s adventures as modern day explorers through the wild Australian outback. Feeken’s account of assimilating into a culture drastically different from his German homeland will open the eyes of readers seeking their own adventure and help prepare them for the cultural differences they may encounter. “We came for adventure, and adventure is what we’ve had,” Feeken said. “Get to know a new country and its people, it’s all worth the effort.” Feeken hopes to inspire readers to step out of their comfort zone through travel, particularly in a time when misunderstanding and mistrust are more prevalent than ever. “As Mark Twain once said, ‘Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness,’” Feeken said. “I think that is reason enough to go see the world.” For more information, visit My Adopted Country: Australia  By Erwin Feeken ISBN: 9781499028607 Available in softcover, hardcover, e-book Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and XlibrisAU About the author Erwin Feeken was born in Germany in 1930 and migrated with his wife Gerda to Australia in 1954.

[A]n exploration of humanity, life, and tastes, the book is delicious.” –Entertainment Weekly “Part history lesson and part personal storytelling, Matthew Gavin Frank’s The Mad Feast: An Ecstatic Through America’s Food is some of this year’s best food writing. . . .

Creative Brain Teaser

I don’t know who to credit with this great puzzle. My cousin sent it to me and I liked it, as once I got through the first two sentences it became easy and fun. I hope you enjoy.
