This year I have spent more time in Switzerland visiting places where Sigeric walked on his journey home from Rome to Canterbury in 990.  Do read about my adventures along the Swiss Via Francigena pilgrim route.  My story is also published on the official Via Francigena website. 

I also enjoyed an amazing day at Grand St Bernard Pass joining in the 20 year celebrations for the opening of pilgrim pathways which paved the way for pilgrims to walk from Canterbury to Rome.  There is an account of these celebrations in my photojournal section.  The story is also published on the official Via Francigena website.



In 2016 I made the Via Francigena pilgrimage from Canterbury to Rome. So many amazing things happened along the way that I have written about our experiences. My story has been published in two places. The first is on the official Via Francigena website and the second in the Catholic Weekly, Sydney, Australia.

Here is a copy of my article published in the Catholic Weekly, Sydney, Australia in November, 2016.

Science Text Books

Most of my professional life was spent teaching Science, Art and Religion!  I have a streak of the Leonardo in me!  So, I did end up writing some best selling Science text books.

I am sole author of this study guide for the School Certificate.

In addition, I am co-author of this best selling Science Focus text book that has been widely used in High Schools in New South Wales, Australia.

Science Focus was so popular it went into a second edition.
