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.

Millions of people are currently in debt and don't know how to get out of it. Ideally credit cards are great for earning rewards for purchases you can already pay off. Ideally we'd like to use our credit cards for big purchases to build our credit score to show that we are responsible with our finances.

It's truly hard to get out of debt especially when life comes at you fast. There are so many BIG purchases such as school, car, and property debt but if you can manage your money properly these won't be a big deal. Let's start with working on living a debt free lifestyle.

A debt free life style denotes a financial protection and an autonomous financial possession without any additional financial trouble. It means a life without paying an interest that always has to be managed by compromising with the needs and dreams of our day-to-day life. We, however, do not always succeed in managing our finances in the manner we want them to be. As a result, we often have to bear the burden of a debt.

The first and most important thing to do in order to avoid debt is to acknowledge the role of personal finance towards a successful life. Sadly, most schools don't teach students how to manage their personal finances, despite the fact that credit card companies are quick to dish out credit cards to them as soon as they graduate. This lack of understanding of how to manage personal finances is probably the greatest factor that contributes to landing most people into debts.

The first thing you should do when trying to pay off debt fast is to cut expenses where you can such as cable, cell phones, internet, etc. Expenses that you can live without for a little while. Then take that money and put it towards your debt.

Yes, it might seem at first that you really need everything, and cannot cut it. But if you spend more time on it, you might find that the cable TV is something you CAN live without, at least for some time! Maybe an insurance of some gadget is what you can live without. Just think of it - you might be amazed at how every little piece adds up and makes a big amount to save!

Overall there are good and bad debts. Good debts can include student loans which in time is ultimately an investment. If you get a degree it will in turn give you a career that increases your income. Bad debts include purchases on drinks and unnecessary accessories on Amazon which do not have any ROI (Return on Investment). It depreciates and the value of your purchases goes down daily.

Overall, please make sure that you do your own research on top of reading this book and figure out what situation works best for you. Everyone has different credit card issues and there is no one shoe fits all solution. Continue to do your own research and slowly get yourself out of debt. You will be happy that you worked so hard in becoming debt free! It will be a difficult journey but remember to never give up!

The Expat's Pajamas: Barcelona

A memoir from the author of "No Roads Lead to Rome" and "Aqueduct to Nowhere."

A wise person observed that visiting a new place for a day makes you an expert but the longer you stay, the less you seem to know. As you integrate into new surroundings, the exotic eventually becomes familiar and what was once quirky becomes the new normal, though you may never quite fit in.

From 2000 to 2005, I lived with my family in Sant Cugat, a Catalan village on the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain. These were interesting and formative years to live, work, and learn abroad.

On a global scale, the hope of the new millennium and the promise of peace didn't last. The new century barely arrived before the world was convulsed with terror that soon turned to war. According to the daily headlines, the planet had become dangerous place.

As we went about our daily lives, we found people were drawing closer, not pulling apart. Traveling extensively through Europe and North Africa, we never felt unsafe or unwelcome.

In putting together this brief collection, I chose to leave world's upheavals and politics aside in order focus on a few odd milestones, minor upsets, and gentle bumps along the road one travels from tourist to resident.



Most of these articles were written and published while avoiding work on my novel, "No Roads Lead to Rome." The novel takes place in Spain in 123 A.D., a time not unlike the present.
