Going Bare!

I have always wanted to try naturism and in August 2012 I got my wish as my terrified wife and excited kids joined me as we went to a naturist resort in southern France for a few days.

This book offers a light-hearted look at our first family holiday in five years, when I persuaded them to try naturism for the first time.

The book is short - around an hour of reading - and details everything from when I first decided naturism appealed to me, to my thoughts after the holiday.

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.

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.



-Why sultry, sexy voices announce the tram stops.

-How the Statue of Liberty almost stayed in France.

-Why the library headquarters looks like a head.

-If an eccentric Riviera lady really had a wedding for her dog.

-Why Greek themed mosaics adorn the hilltop.

-And maybe most importantly... Where to get good chocolate.

I feel very privileged to live in Nice and to be able to explore its beauty and quirkiness on a daily basis. This short book is just a sample of some of the art, architecture, and tasty treats awaiting you in and around this French Riviera city.
