Summary

a naive young australian leaves life on the family farm to face the realities of the wider world. in the 60's the 'assisted passage' migrant scheme meant that ships returning to europe were almost empty. this offered a cheap form of transport and young australians flocked abroad. once off the family farm the author underwent national-service training, tried his hand at selling real-estate and headed for europe. over the next couple of years he witnessed a murder, earned a judo black belt in japan, was hospitalised in singapore and shifted heaps of elephant dropping working for a circus in the usa.
this is a fast moving glimpse of the times and changes taking place in the post-war world.
