Experience the true freedom of flight above one of the most untouched places on earth. Fly with Monika Petrillo and circumnavigate the continent of Australia! As she became exposed to Australian culture, she learned about the Walkabout, a spiritual journey the Aborigines have valued for tens of thousands of years. That inspired her to use this trip to take stock of her own spiritual household. The first step toward that end was to relax. But that proved much more difficult than she thought: a tight schedule, careful and constant maintenance of the aircraft, pot-holed dirt runways, mechanical failures, sudden loss of visibility and unpredictable crosswinds kept her both too busy and too uptight."Flyabout" is an intimate, personal story about a pilot's journey around Australia. It is the story of a young woman growing into an adult and coming to grips with how generational roles change over time. Monika has never been a person to postpone her dreams. So at 24 she decided to get a pilot's license. A year later, her father surprised her by learning to fly as well. Together, they took off for one of the greatest adventures of their lives, but what impacted her most was the conflict that arose between her father and herself.
