About the author

Mary Jane Walker

Mary Jane Walker is a writer of true travel stories that come with an autobiographical flavour. She comes from New Zealand, a country whose inhabitants are used to making long journeys to get to to almost any other place.

Mary Jane first experienced world travel as part of the crew on a Chinese junk named La Dame de Canton, which sailed from Guangzhou to Paris to become a floating restaurant.

She has visited 71 countries so far and published five books.  Her books are unconventional and outspoken, and heavily illustrated as well. Four more are forthcoming.
