In the year 2000, the time-traveling adventurer Tim Hunt published the first of his many book-length chronicles of his travels in India.
But for all his efforts, he was never able to return home to his beloved home country of Australia.
Instead, he spent three years working as a courier in Australia and India, before returning to Australia in 2007.
And it was the first time Hunt had travelled beyond his home country.
The first-time travellers’ story, titled Time Travel Stories, became a global bestseller and a major cultural phenomenon, inspiring a new generation of readers.
The new version of the book was adapted into a new film, Time Travel Adventures, which was released in October this year and has since been adapted into an upcoming TV series.
The original story, written in the 1980s by Hunt’s younger brother, Tom, also inspired a series of books by Hunt and his wife, Michelle, based on their travels in the region.
“I think I’ve been lucky to get to go places I never would have dreamed of in the past,” Hunt told Wired at the time.
“It’s not only a cultural phenomenon but a great economic, financial and political one.
India has been a fantastic home for me, and I’ve met some amazing people.”
Hunt’s travels are told through the eyes of his family, and his travels include a visit to Mumbai and the Bay of Bengal.
The book also includes anecdotes from Hunt’s extended family, including his father, Peter, a former railway engineer.
Tom Hunt was an Australian journalist for The Age in the 1990s and has been an author, producer and director since the mid-1990s.
He is also an avid traveller.
“Tim is a kind and gentle person,” Michelle Hunt said.
“He’s very humble, very self-effacing.
And he’s very well known for being an adventure-loving guy.”
Tom Hunt is a bit of a travel legend, too.
He has written a number of books about travelling in India and spent five years travelling in South Africa.
In 2004, he became the first person in the world to go from South Africa to India, with a total of 12 days’ time.
After spending five months in the country, he returned to Australia and spent two more years in India before returning home in 2011.
Tim Hunt’s time travel stories have become a huge hit with readers worldwide, and have been adapted for television.
Tim’s journey to India took him from the Indian city of Kolkata to the northern Indian state of Bihar.
It is the first story of its kind to be adapted for the screen, and it was made into a series on Channel 5 in 2017.
In the series, Tom Hunt travels around the country with a group of friends, including a woman named Gauri Lankesh, a yoga teacher, a student of the famous writer Ramana Maharshi, and an Indian cricket legend called Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
“The most interesting thing about Tim is that he does not tell a story in chronological order,” said Michelle Hunt.
“Rather, he chooses to take us through a period of his life.”
In Time Travel Travels, Tom and Gauri are given a tour of the city of Bengal, and the story is told in a series with a different cast of characters each day.
In one episode, the team of friends travel through the streets of Bengal on their bicycles.
“Each time we get there, we get more and more into the history of the area, and we are able to trace back to a specific point in time,” Michelle said.
And in the end, the adventure is about finding out who was responsible for the deaths of millions of people during the Bengal famine.
The story has been adapted to include a number more of Tim’s travels around India.
One of the most memorable is a visit Tim made to Mumbai, India, during his time in India, where he met a woman who gave birth to his son, James.
“James was born in the city and we were in the hospital waiting room,” Michelle recalled.
“When we got to the maternity ward, she was pregnant.
I was trying to get a taxi to get out.
And she gave birth, and they didn’t let me in.
I felt very fortunate, because I’ve only met one other person like her. “
The whole family was on a bit emotional, because of the circumstances.
