"HOW ON EARTH??? A Covid Reflection on Thirty Years of European Music and ArtTours"
Foreword generously contributed by music lover and fellow traveller, Christopher Barnes, AM ...
Roma Randles has used the long time on her hands during the Melbourne Covid lockdown to respond to innumerable requests for an account of her thirty years of creating and conducting extraordinary and exciting European adventures. It makes for some compelling reading.
Enjoy Roma's reflections on her Lingua Musica journey, starting off as a 'one man band', her creating and leading no less than thirty amazing Music and Art tours all over Europe, from North to South and East to West. Russia, Sicily, Poland, the UK, France, Germany, Spain and so much more.
Learning whilst travelling was always Roma's overall passion, as well as bringing like-minded travellers togther to indulge in the joy of simple fun. Her formula worked! Many of her guests have returned four and five times over the years, each time experiencing great locations, meeting inspiring personalities, and experiencing wonderful Music and Art, with many life-long friendships developing along the way.
In her book Roma reveals so much of musical and geographical interest in this account, as well as numerous tales of adventure and misadventure...some quite hilarious!
