PostCards Never Written
Janita Van de Velde
Ever wondered what it would be like to quit your job and travel? Breaking free from the daily grind, Jenny embarks on a round-the-world trip with her boyfriend, Johnny. He might just be the one - if their relationship survives the next six months. Travelling together can’t be that hard, can it?

Jenny experiences moments of extreme clarity while baiting great white sharks in the Indian Ocean, getting tossed from a bridge high over the Zambezi River and hurling herself from a plane in New Zealand. Her adventures are riddled with bouts of imagined malaria and spells of gastro-intestinal difficulties.

She chronicles her hilarious stories with no excuses or apologies, until she sends the sanitized postcards home to her parents. After all, why worry them? Jenny, the boyfriend, the adventures and the stories…join her in a journey across the continents, as she discovers many things about herself and life.
