Katrina Blowers seemingly had everything in life that she'd ever wanted - a great husband, close family and friends, a job as a breakfast announcer on Nova 969 with Merrick and Rosso ('the best job in Sydney radio' according to one local newspaper) and a media celebrity lifestyle. But despite the apparent glamour of her life, she was left wondering: is this all there is? On the brink of 30, with no mortgage or children, she decided to check out of her status quo and try to regain some perspective on her life, dreams and ambitions. She wanted to rekindle the spark in her marriage and discover what she was really all about. So Katrina and her husband, Tom, left Australia and headed off on an around-the-world adventure for six months. She was told she was making the biggest mistake of her career, and for a time she believed it. In Tuning Out, Katrina writes engagingly about their wonderful travel experiences and honestly about her own inner journey. Katrina and Tom travelled along the prickly-pear-lined backroads of Sardinia, visited steamy Moroccan bathhouses and trekked up a glacial mountain pass in South America. But the best thing Katrina discovered on their trip was something that wasn't in any guidebook - it was herself.
