Thoughts on Travel, Photography and Life from Ian Lloyd

Australia By Bike

In 1996 Roff Smith, a young American writer living in Australia, set off from Sydney to bicycle 10,000 miles around Australia. National Geographic magazine liked his epic tale and assigned me to cover various parts of the journey. The final story appeared in three parts and launched the writing career of Smith with the National Geographic Society. 19 years later Roff and I met up again in Sydney to catch up and share stories from that first assignment together.
