"Setting off unknown to face the unknown, against parental opposition, with no money, friends, or influence, ran it a close second. Clichés like 'blazing trails,' flying over 'shark-infected seas,' 'battling with monsoons,' and 'forced landings amongst savage tribes' became familiar diet for breakfast. Unknown names became household words, whilst others, those of the failures, were forgotten utterly except by kith and kin." ~ Amy John, First woman to fly from Britain to Australia alone
