A sizeable segment of their travels included family and friends which came with its own humour of entanglement and unexpected train rides. Included are the growing pains endured along the way as Elora discusses her angst in coping with what should be a memorable adventure. EN ROUTE spans a period of about 10 years, beginning with immigration trials andtribulations from South Africa to Australia with two teenage boys. New discoveries emerge about each other whilst the family adapts to their new surroundings.
Part of Elora’s learning curve was discovering how to live with herself and the decisions she has made as she navigates the challenges of her marital rifts. Elora covers revealing nuances about her and her husband, James, committing themselves to each other despite their, sometimes, apparent distaste for each other.
Other relationships that were cemented through their travels were with Elora’s mum and sister as they re-learnt to simply be together in trying times. The infamous in-law relationship is also tentatively touched upon.
The sudden loss of Elora’s dad plays a poignant role in how she managed to cope with the impact of his death on her psyche.
As she reflects on the transience of love in all its forms, Elora’s self-empowerment grows into finding peace; finding voice and mightily so.
Their travels crossed the lands of South Africa, America, Europe, United Kingdom, Ireland, Asia and, of course, Australia. Included in these tales are stories of crime, love, loss, pets, friends, tourist highlights and treasure troves of magick.

This unraveling is a magical mix of discovering past heritage and losing yourself in imagination of yesteryear and folklore. A travel memoir that intertwines humour, quirky facts and the treasures in each of our relationships across all whom we encounter on our trip around the sun. A gap year that will have you packing your bags and leaving on the next flight into the
