Expat stories to make you laugh and shudder
Flying with a local blacklisted airline in the hands of drunken ex-Yugoslavian suicide pilots while holding a cool box on your lap, all to collect a few kilos of fresh chicken. An intoxicated gardener who sells the coconuts off your trees without your knowledge...
Expats and frequent travellers are an infinite source of amazing, hilarious, poignant and even horrifying stories and anecdotes in media company Global Connection’s first book Expat & Travel Stories.
Global Connection’s Editor-in-chief, Henk Dam, compiled the hundreds of anecdotes into a read that crosses borders in more ways than one--read, laugh and shudder. Formerly a newspaper journalist, Dam has worked as a correspondent in London and Washington, travelled the world as a reporter, and served as Director and Editor-in-Chief of Geassocieerde Pers Diensten (Associated Press Services), the press agency which supplies national and international news throughout the Netherlands.
