A Life in Travel: Children’s author Jacqueline Harvey

What are your strongest memories from the first overseas trip you ever took?

Japan when I was 24, as a teacher accompanying a primary school cultural exchange. I fell in love with the country (and have been back numerous times, including for the Rugby World Cup last year). I also starved that first time as I’m allergic to shellfish and crustaceans and hadn’t yet acquired my love of salmon sashimi.

What was a standard family holiday like when growing up?

Beach holidays on the NSW coast and lots of fishing.
