By reading this book, you will discover there is more to life than a boring nine-to-five job. I found this out after losing my job in 1983 due to a back injury, which resulted in my becoming an expat. I earned more money than I did in England and travelled to a variety of countries at no expense to myself. In the course of nineteen years, I worked on interior fit-out contracts to a number of five-star hotels and several palaces. During this incredible period in my life, I experienced more of life than many do in a lifetime. By working with workers from another country than my own, it made me realise that not everyone was as lucky as me. Another major turning point in my life occurred when on a contract down on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. There, my late wife and I enjoyed life so much we had a house built. This proved a great decision. After twenty-five years, I still live in Turkey, only now married to a Turkish lady and living in Istanbul. In general, I lived life to the full, and by being positive, so can you.

    A Great Read!

    I thoroughly enjoyed joining the author on his many adventures as an expat working abroad, reading about the mis-adventures of some of his colleagues and the anecdotes that only someone who has travelled extensively and has worked with people from all walks of life could possibly recount; a great read, written in a style which has equal shares of both humour and humility.
