Product Description

Product Description

The three years before our move to Greece was just a dream – something to hold onto, something to aim for before we made it into a realisation.

This book portrays life in our first year in the Mani and the previous three, the ups and downs, the laughter and the Sod it! – Not again! The cold, wet, sun and heat that the climate has to offer and above all the warmth and love that the Greeks have.

This true story reflects those four years and makes the story into an amusing series of anecdotes which, hopefully, will bring smiles to the faces of our readers

1.0 out of 5 stars A disaster of a book 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
An appalling waste of time and effort reading this book. The proof reading and editing was non existant. The book consists of a series of emails cataloguing the apparently boring life of a British Ex Pat. And boring it is. The highlight of most days being the choosing of which type of bean to plant.
The writer is crass and downright obnoxious when talking about the death of the local postman who was killed in a motor cycle accident. All it meant to the writer was the loss of an evenings pay to his wife/partner.
A total waste of money, I recommend you don't bother feeding the writers ego by actually paying for your inevitable disappointment.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new life in Greece 7 July 2013
By Merope
Verified Purchase
This was a great insight into a new life in Greece. I shared many of David and Lin's experience s as ex pats abroad. Good on them for giving it a go and making the most of all their skills and opportunities. Their life seems fulfilling, enjoyable and we are full of admiration that they found paid work too. We wish our gardening and home preserving was as successful. Kali tiki for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings back memories of Stoupa holidays 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase
We visit Stoupa regularly. This book would be of interest to anyone doing the same because they would recognise or know some of the characters.
