Growing Old Outrageously Summary


Growing Old Outrageously: A memoir of travel, food and friendship by Hilary Linstead

Two old school friends reconnect unexpectedly after thirty-five years and discover that they both love travelling - and the more exotic and far-flung the location, the better! Not having a clue whether they will get along, the eccentric pair embark on a trial journey to Morocco. That tentative beginning has turned into a series of wonderfully unusual holidays, and Hil and Liz have been circumnavigating the globe ever since. Among many other destinations, they have taken in Marrakech, Fez and the Atlas Mountains; Patagonia and the Galapagos Islands; Istanbul and Cappadocia. They've been on safari in Namibia, Botswana and the Serengeti, attended music festivals in Naples and Prague and made a pilgrimage to the western isles of Mull and Iona. Along the way they have encouraged, enraged and entertained each other, while living through countless adventures. This is a book for thrillseekers and armchair travellers alike, a celebration of friendship and laughter - and an inspiration for anyone who's longed to venture outside their comfort zone and travel to exotic places.

"I warned people not to let these two women of a certain age loose on the world. Now look what's happened." - Louis Nowra.

About Hilary Linstead


Hilary and Liz went to school together in the UK before their lives took very different turns. Hilary Linstead left England for Australia at twenty-one, pursuing a man and her dream of becoming an actress. She discovered that she couldn't make a full-time living as an actress and went into business with a friend, first as a casting director, later becoming the first theatrical agent for directors and designers in Australia, representing many distinguished clients like Neil Armfield, Gillian Armstrong, Baz Luhrmann, Louis Nowra and Wendy Harmer. Liz Davies went to Cambridge University, graduated in Economics and became a civil servant and freelance journalist. Meeting up again much later in life, the pair discovered their mutual love of travel and embarked on the series of adventures that are the subjects of this book.
