'Letters from the Atlantic' offers an amusing and reflective view of living abroad for foreigners living in a country with a different language, a different culture, different legal systems and more importantly, a different pace of life. This book sets out clearly the do's and don'ts for those who are contemplating moving abroad, as well as for those who have already made their choice for a life in the sun. The advice and suggestions are meant to encourage and support, as well as to entertain and amuse. This is not a travel book, but a well-observed view on people, society and the culture of living in another country. Barrie's work as a reporter and editor of an English language newspaper in Spain led him to meet a wide range of people, some amazing and some weird, but most who had stories and experiences to share with others. These letters are intended to be an inspiration for those tempted by a life in the sun, as well as some cautionary advice based on Barrie's real life experiences in Spain and the Canary Islands. www.thecanaryislander.com www.barriemahoney.comaJust pack it carefully and our courier will be along to collect it tomorrow, and take it to our service engineers in Gran Canaria.
