Travel Writing


Venice, Italy

Lucinda is also a travel writer and a winner of the Ed Lacy Travel-Writing Award, for an article about Gibraltar. Her travels have taken her all over the world: an obscure pumpkin festival in Belgium, the Galapagos Islands during an Ecuadorean coup, the Torres Strait Islands (from where she hitched a lift back to Australia on a passing aeroplane), the souks of Syria, the spice island of Zanzibar, on mule-back around Petra in Jordan and to watch an orchestra play an entire concert on amplified vegetables in a smoky Viennese jazz club.
