Welcome to Journeys in Pages.

This free newsletter will arrive in your email inbox approximately nine times a year: the usual schedule is every second month, with extra issues when there is something especially exciting to share. The newsletters include:

  • Mini-essays about travel and the writing journey
  • Destination puzzles and guessing games (with fabulous photo clues)
  • Resources for travellers, readers and writers
  • Travel media recommendations and book club reads
  • News about recent and upcoming publications

Once your subscription is confirmed, you'll receive links to:

  • a jigsaw puzzle created from one of my favourite Greek photographs, and
  • an exclusive read of a draft chapter about Sally and her sisters tackling the Inca Trail, cut from Unpacking for Greece because this extended Peruvian flashback didn’t quite work in the context of the book.

About the Author

Immigrant Australian Sally Jane Smith has visited 33 countries and has lived on five continents.
In 2006, the bus on which she was travelling through Sri Lanka suffered a head-on collision, breaking both her body and her spirit. A decade on, she journeyed to Greece in a quest to recover her wanderlust – and proved it is possible for an out-of-shape, middle-aged woman on a budget, equipped only with her mother’s 1978 travel diary, to experience a life-changing adventure. This is the story that became Unpacking for Greece (published June 2023).
Sally is the author of "Eleven Thirty" in the Newcastle Short Story Award Anthology 2022 and “Some Leafs: Grandma Gropp’s Tale” in the anthology Itchy Feet: Tales of Travel and Adventure. Her writing focus is on Greece and Turkey, but she has also written of her travels in Albania, Peru, Sri Lanka and Tunisia, and about life in South Africa and Australia.
