15 Weeks: Thailand Diaries - Volume 1

15 WEEKS - Grab your download today.



If you are seriously thinking about living in Thailand you need to read James King's THAILAND DIARIES starting with 15WEEKS.

Witty, informative, often deliciously 'tongue-in-cheek' and full of typically British humour, is a must read for travellers, would be ex-pats and those who just enjoy humorous light reading.

Between Jun and Sep 2008 James King stayed for fifteen weeks on the tropical island of Phuket where he formed his first impressions of Thailand. He learned a little of what it would be like to live in Thailand permanently and he diarised his activities, observations and some unusual incidents which took place during his 15 week sojourn.

On arrival he had no intention of settling in Thailand permanently but when he gleaned valuable information about the Country and its people he changed his mind.

The Author recognises that many aspects of 15 WEEKS apply equally to women as they do to men even though he writes from a male point of view.

James writes more extensively about Thailand in Volumes 2 and 3.

A Taste of Italy: a novella

Carly Simpson is in desperate need of a romantic interlude, but her plans for a hot European getaway in Florence, Italy turn cold quickly when her own inhibitions leave her ill-equipped for the Tuscan town's passionate temperament. Greeted by a grumpy hotel clerk, a sea of love-struck couples, and one too many pawing lotharios, she nearly gives up all hopes of ever finding romance, let alone love. But just when she resigns herself to a life of loveless melancholy, and Florence has practically broken her spirit, she discovers that love is actually a lot closer to home than she ever imagined. And that Italy is meant to be savored.

FAUX REVIEWS by PSEUDO-CELEBRITIES

Here are just a few of the author's infamous 'faux reviews' of the spurious kind which appear in the original Campervan Capers book...

I go out in my camper to study insects. It's amazing how many different species you can collect on your windscreen as you drive full pelt along the motorway.

David Atinburrer

I used to have an RV back in the great US of A. But then I came to this tiny little island called Britain and read Campervan Capers. My God! I was transformed - and bought one of those quaint little English campers instead. Downsizing sure has made me happy!

Tom Crews

Actor, Mission Improbable

I heartily encourage a campervanning lifestyle! Getting out onto the open road, it's amazing just how much road-kill you can pick up... And, with a gas hob on board, I can fry up what I find on the spot.

Egyptian temples

This book contains the most important 10 temples in Egypt history, It also contains many pictures of each temple of those temples.

Egyptian temples were built for the official worship of the gods and in commemoration of the pharaohs in ancient Egypt and regions under Egyptian control. Temples were seen as houses for the gods or kings to whom they were dedicated. Within them, the Egyptians performed a variety of rituals, the central functions of Egyptian religion: giving offerings to the gods, reenacting their mythological interactions through festivals, and warding off the forces of chaos. These rituals were seen as necessary for the gods to continue to uphold maat, the divine order of the universe. Housing and caring for the gods were the obligations of pharaohs, who therefore dedicated prodigious resources to temple construction and maintenance. Out of necessity, pharaohs delegated most of their ritual duties to a host of priests, but most of the populace was excluded from direct participation in ceremonies and forbidden to enter a temple's most sacred areas. Nevertheless, a temple was an important religious site for all classes of Egyptians, who went there to pray, give offerings, and seek oracular guidance from the god dwelling within.
