'Wendy Suart is an author, travel writer, lecturer and professional musician. In the 1940s she cycled around her native Australia with another girl and their dog while still in her teens. This mammoth odyssey took three years. She then went to Borneo where she married her English husband. He was an engineer with Cable and Wireless and they spent most of their married life in foreign postings while raising six children.
'Returning to England in 1974, they lived for six years in Farnham, Surrey where Suart was very active in the Redgrave Theatre. In 1980 they moved to Standford in Hampshire. When her husband died in 1990 she started to travel again, from Antarctica to Bhutan, from Tierra del Fuego to China, from the North Cape to Kenya and Burma to Bulgaria.'
