Finding a Place to Park my Melon


In two truths and a lie it was never easy to think of the lie but the life of a trailing spouse produced so many outlandish truths that my only difficulty was which of truths to pick. Would it be when I was arrested on the Slovenian border or when I paid a gardener and odd job man to run his hands over every inch of my naked body in the Black Forest? I never meant to get into these kinds of situations, but that is what happens when you live a life by the philosophy that “you only ever regret the things you didn’t do.”This book is the story of our three years in Germany trying to traverse the cultural chasms that made life interesting and searching for the people that made us complete.

The humour is incredible and the turtle story was hilarious.

 The various names for buns was fascinating. Once in a while I'm reminded of places in the world that I have been and long to go back to; the English countryside is one of them.
