About Helene Thomas

I've been a collector of stories since I was 19 but it wasn’t until I moved into audio storytelling that I found my true passion. I spent six years travelling between East Africa and Australia collecting stories for ABC Radio National and my PhD research. My plan is to tour around Tasmania in The Wayfinder Mobile Storytelling studio mapping my own homeland through stories.

A Welshman in Israel

As a 25-year-old Bob Frost found himself in Israel setting up the first Hertz car rental operation in that part of the world. It was the late 1960s and just as he was setting up the business trouble struck, and there he was in the middle of the Six-Day War. Bob tells his story from his Franklin home in southern Tasmania.
