Thinking Back and Looking Forward
2018 has been another memorable year of Travelling Australia Mick’s Way and enjoying the journey.
The Rocket turned 50 this year!
Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama says “As often as possible go some place you have never been before.”
In 2018 I have been so very fortunate to venture in The Rocket to lots of places I have never been before as well as to some familiar destinations shared with special friends.

Silo Art – Weethalle
The tiny town of Weethalle near West Wyalong – SIlo Art Project where this epic work of art tells the unique story of the town.
Next year the Rocket and I plan to go on the entire Silo Art Tour through NSW and Victoria, more on that to follow next year.
Some of the highlights of 2018 have been:
Driving all the way to Central Australia and back.
Sharing my story of survivorship with medical teams at the Royal North Shore Hospital and various hospitals along the way during my travels, including Dubbo, Broken Hill and Orange,
Being asked to join the panel and present at a number of Cancer Council of Australia webinars.
Driving through the ever changing landscape of this incredible country we live in, meeting other travellers and everyday Australians just doing their thing and sharing our stories.
Capturing the landscape, a story or just the moment on camera ( more recently on film) and learning to operate some new equipment including a drone.
Over 5000 copies sold of Travelling Australia Mick’s Way the book.
50 plus radio interviews Australia wide.

I have been humbled by how welcomed I have felt wherever I turn up and whenever I pull out the uke for a sellout impromptu concert.
Thank you to everyone for a great year, for your gifts of kindness, love and support.
I wish you all safe travels on which ever road you choose to travel during this holiday season and beyond.
The Rocket may be 50 but there are still plenty of adventures to be had, films to be made and stories to tell. I will definitely keep you posted via this blog or follow me on Instagram @ mick.miller
This Christmas there is no need for fancy paper or ribbons, just wrap up your friends and loved ones with kindness, honesty, joy and love.
Joy to the world
