One minute you’re relaxing by the pool in a luxury Thai resort and the next you’re a gringo with a donkey on an isolated island off Brazil!

When Tony and his wife Sue were caught in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami that devastated hundreds of thousands of lives, they wanted more than to return to the rat race of suburban life, they wanted to ‘live the dream’. After careful consideration, or possibly in a moment of insanity, they decided that the dream was to run a guest house on a remote paradise island off the coast of Brazil.

And so began the most amazing, frustrating, and bewildering time of their lives as they gave up their careers, sold up all their belongings and moved to Moreré, a tiny, isolated fishing village on the tip of the Island of Boipeba in sunny Bahia.

With a scant knowledge of the local language, no previous experience in the hospitality business and a determined attitude what could possibly go wrong?

This charming and witty account of their first year living the dream will have you yearning for white sands and adventure.
