Itchy Feet is the second book in the Travel Stories series and the third, Wish You Were Here is due for publication at the end of 2021.
I thoroughly enjoyed Book 1, Chasing the Dream – A new life abroad, about brave souls who re-located to exotic places around the world – and we’re not just talking about France and Spain! Here is the review I left on Amazon.co.uk.
I loved this enchanting insight into people chasing their dreams of a new life abroad. I couldn’t put it down!
This is not a line-up of the usual booze and bougainvillea suspects. It is a truly global compendium of expat experience; from Australia to Zambia, with Japan, Libya and a canal barge in the Netherlands set alongside pastoral idylls in places such as France, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Greece. The resourceful and adaptable people who penned this delightful smörgåsbord of life stories carefully planned, accidentally fell into, or made the best of a bad job during their jaunts around the world.
The book is curated from a variety of authors; from first-time-published to New York Times bestseller. However, the selection is excellent. Every story is beautifully written, and for me, the rich assortment of styles and voices really added to the diversity of destinations.
The accounts are very honest. You will laugh out loud, but it’s certainly not all sugar-coated ‘move abroad to a life of sunshine and rainbows’. You will see first-hand the difficulties of setting up in a new country–even places where you think the culture is like your own. Yet with great risk comes great reward and–in most cases–that joy shines through. All the contributors had the courage and resolve to make things work out, even when things deviated grossly from their plans.
Whether you’re thinking of chasing your own dream, or just want to expand your horizons and read the world, I can heartily recommend this anthology of exotic tales.
