Upside Down

Georgina Carr’s novel Upside Down reads like a diary – an intimate collection of her thoughts, feelings, and experiences as she seeks (and finds) adventure throughout Australia.  In her humorous and informal style, Georgina offers an inspiring story about daring to leave behind a monotonous desk job and start anew in completely unfamiliar, exciting, sometimes dangerous surroundings.

“Ok, wait… Why are we going to Tasmania?”

Our flight from Adelaide to Hobart had barely levelled at cruising altitude when I turned to Taylor with the question.  He looked across the aisle at Kate and Jonny, who were already slumped over their tray tables, sleeping off the night before.

He laughed, “I have no idea.”

We may not have been sure why we’d decided on Tasmania, but after six months of studying abroad down under, we started running out of places to explore.

Mentioning my year abroad in Adelaide has elicited more than a groan or two from Australians that are not native to South Australia.

Adelaide,” whined a Sydney woman I met while she visited Boston, “is our most embarrassing city. It’s so tiny. Why would you have gone there when you could have gone to Sydney or Melbourne? Or up north to Queensland?”

South Australia’s neighbors to the east might have the upper hand when it comes to attracting tourists with iconic destinations like the Sydney Opera House, Whitsunday Islands, and Great Barrier Reef, but conveniently enough, the lack of tourists is part of what makes South Australia as beautiful and unique as it is.
