Life is like a bus ride, people get on and off the bus throughout your life, some stay the whole journey and some just stay a short distance. Unfortunately, the first people to get off my bus were my parents! And I was only five! So my troubles in life started with abandonment, and then built up after a series of events which caused me to fall short on being a model student, an achiever, or an academic. Yet, somehow, I shone through and became an overseas resort controller for UK’s second largest tour operator by being reasonably competent in four languages.

I spent 11 years abroad running away from family tragedies and the decline of our family.

Then therapy, my saviour, with all of its revelations. The therapist knew what my troubles were before I met her, from my medical records. My story is a prime example of how uncaring parents can mess up a child’s life and how the effect can stay with the child for life. I am 63 now and still have to switch the TV over if there is any interaction between father and son.

It’s a bumpy ride, readers! But I am sure you will find it an enjoyable one.

An open minded and open hearted countryman with a deep dark past who ran away for years, from family tragedies, and found peace in therapy.

    I was immediately drawn into this story of episodes of joy and sadness, told in fast-paced style with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. You are taken along on a journey told with honesty, insight and humour, with a fascinating account of a country childhood balanced by adventures as a Travel Rep. Couldn't put it down!

    I love this heartfelt book about a life of ups and downs, mainly about working as a holiday rep. So many laughs and also serious moments.
