Inside this Book – If you could go anywhere, where would you go? I was thirteen years old, the first time I asked that question. School had just broken up for the summer and my best friend Louise and I were lying in the cargo tray of her dad’s ute, staring up at an ink-black sky glittering with stars. ‘I dunno,’ Louise replied with a shrug. ‘Adelaide?’ ‘You’re always going there!’ I exclaimed. ‘And it’s not even out of the state.’ ‘I like it,’ she grumbled. ‘It’s “green”.’ When you lived in a part of the country that resembled Mars and the moon, colour was everything. ‘Come on,’ I urged. ‘If you could go anywhere? Anywhere at all? Use your imagination.’ ‘I told you, I don’t know. Where would you go?’ Now that she’d asked… ‘France, Holland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and Spain.’ I reeled off the list I’d memorised, glad I hadn’t stumbled. It was only later that I learned I’d been mispronouncing ‘Czech’. Kerzetch. ‘You’re just repeating the countries stamped on your mum’s passport,’ Louise sniped. ‘How is that “using your imagination”?’ ‘I’d go anywhere,’ I stated, piqued that she’d caught me out. ‘Anywhere but here.’ ‘Why would you want to leave Coober Pedy? It’s the opal mining capital of the world,’ she parroted. This much was true. It was also in the middle of nowhere. If you type Coober Pedy into Google Maps, all you will see is a vast mass of orangey-beige land in the middle of South Australia .
Inside this book –If You Could Go Anywhere PDF Book by Paige Toon – Heat engulfs me as I step outside, like a gust of hot air from an oven turned up full blast. We’re supposed to be coming into winter, but the desert is defiant. I can’t imagine a world in which people go to saunas, but it happens: people actually sit inside small wooden cabins and ladle water onto searing rocks to create clouds of hot steam. Then they take off their clothes and sweat. On purpose. For pleasure. Aada told me about it, and Laszlo too. Aada is Finnish and Laszlo is Hungarian, just two of over forty-five different nationalities that live in this multicultural town of ours. I used to find the knowledge of the people who had travelled here fascinating. I would hang on their every word, soaking up the tales of the places they’d come from and the things they’d seen. I used to think, One day I’ll see these things for myself. That was when dreaming didn’t hurt me, when it didn’t make me ache from the inside out.
