              This is the story of the stuff of dreams and how they can actually happen in the best way possible. A story of two people living three completely different lifestyles over a four-year Odyssey.

              After a fork in the road presented itself, John and Helen left Sydney Australia for a hemisphere change to live on the Greek Island of Samos. At the time of leaving, they were both at the top of their professions in the IT Industry.

              Life, love, and all manner of emotions came forth to capture the start of their destiny on Samos, where they lived for nine months. From this Greek Island they moved to London and John worked in the IT Industry with Helen working as a PA, a job for which she was overqualified.

             Great success in the UK then led to a second fork in the road and they decided to buy a large sailing yacht and leave England to sail and live in Europe, having the Mediterranean Sea in mind and to return to the Greek Island of Samos, which they considered their spiritual home in Europe.

             To do this they needed to complete a three-month course in sailing and navigation with the Royal Yachting Association (RYA). After this they left England to sail and live in Europe and the last of the three lifestyles.

             It is a story of people, countries and their peoples, adventure, the romance of the sea and life and above all… emotions! To adopt these lifestyles, they needed an abundance of confidence, intelligence, and courage. These qualities they had.

            A similar tale to the TV Series “The Durrells” on a Greek Island. Then onto the TV Series “Emily in Paris” for their city success. The last of course being the return of Odysseus, the Greek hero, who sailed home and returned to the Greek Island of Ithaca after an absence of some years where similarly John and Helen returned, under sail, to the Greek Island of Samos.

John Neale was a successful business person throughout his life whilst also playing sport at a high level, including rugby league and tennis. After managing their family hotel for two years, he entered the IT industry and achieved a competence level which saw him working for the leading companies of the day.

A fork in the road saw he and his wife leave Australia to live overseas on a Greek island, then London and then to live aboard their yacht in various countries in Europe. During this time of residence in many countries and sailing adventures, John became a watercolour artist and sold many of these paintings. After a four-year successful odyssey, he returned home to continue a very full life.
