The Lotus Eaters ...

If any of you ever went to Maggie's Bistro (formerly Maggie's Place) in Roda you may be interested to know that her husband has written a book about their life in Greece.

It is available for the Kindle here - http://goo.gl/B6Fxz

Product description -

Two middle aged "adventurers", at least old enough to know better, leave friends and security behind to embark on a journey toward a new and exciting life in Greece - a veritable graveyard for ill-informed and naive "wannabe" entrepreneurs such as they.

Their story highlights the almost daily necessity to adapt to changing circumstances and predatory rivals in order just to survive in a totally alien and sometimes hostile environment.

Most "change of life" accounts revolve around relatively settled and successful individuals looking to add a foreign home or holiday villa to their already healthy life's portfolio, whereas the Nouvels landed in Greece with little over 1000, a big dog and huge hopes and expectations - nothing else.

Hilarious, sad and sometimes dangerous experiences eventually mould them into a strong and stable unit that finally wins through and allows them to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that comes with being a "Lotus Eater" - but it was a close call!

Think before you speak! If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
