    A True Story from South East Asia

    A True Story from Asia

    250 Thai Girls by Age 25, A True Story from South East Asia is a true-to-life adventure that can be relived from beginning to end. The story begins with the allure of travel and the need for new experiences. Sex, drugs, alcohol and debauchery are the name of the game, and the impetus behind this historic modern day journey. Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Udon Thani, Cambodia, Laos, and the pristine Andaman beaches of Kho Lipe are featured in this bold and daring travel adventure.

    The author narrowly escapes death at the hands of a knife wielding Cambodian mugger. He is violently robbed by a taxi driver in Bangkok. Held up by the Laos Police for running at a late night roadblock with a teen prostitute. And narrowly escapes a King Cobra in the jungles of Northern Thailand.

    This non-fiction story is as up to date, authentic, and original as anything in its genre. The names, places, and people from this wild South East Asian sexcapade have not been altered in any way. This book has the potential to spark a new generation of hedonistic travelers looking to better understand themselves, and where to go to make that possible. Once you go Asian, you will never go Caucasian.

    Join the author on his solo travels while he searches out every nook and cranny during his first year in South East Asia.

    There are so many beautiful and sexy women working in the bars around Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket in Thailand. Dazzling smiles and seductive eyes on exotic faces entice customers to step into their night time world of neon lights and pulsating music. Skimpy clothes on tanned skin adorned with tattoos. Considered art ‘Master Pieces’ by some. Tattoos are touched, kissed and admired by the men who are tempted to step into this twilight world of ‘love for sale’.

    When the body of a beautiful young woman is found murdered and skinned in her small rented room in Pattaya the police ask Danny O’Brien, a retired Detective Sgt from New Scotland Yard to take a look at the case. O’Brien lives in Thailand and he has advised on many previous ‘High Profile’ cases for the Thai Government.

    To some people Danny O’Brien will always be just an old drunken Irishman who gets into too many fights and solves murder cases with nothing more than sheer luck. To others he is the best detective they have ever worked with. He has his own demons to battle with but when he is sober for long enough, Danny O’Brien is back on the case. Even when the case turns out to be political and international.

    A Collection of Short Stories

    Peter loves his wife dearly, and does everything to make her happy, so why would he invent a story that his work is taking him to Bangkok for a couple of weeks? His wife Juliana follows him to try and discover why!

    Bebito, a young boy from the interior of Bahia Brazil, becomes another Brazilian ‘‘street child’. He makes friends with Marcopolo who teaches him how to survive on the streets of Salvador. But why must he go home to repay his former employer, the rich landowner Snr. Calvacanti?

    Reginald, a young man from a religious background, decides on a career at sea as a ships engineer. Life at sea, and the characters he lives and works with are not exactly what he expected.

    The author’s description in ‘The Game of Golf’, where he and his Scottish friend play a typical weekly round together with a Japanese competitor and an elderly South African gentleman. The situations they encounter are humorous, but typical.

    “Worlds Apart – a collection of short stories”, is Oliver’s sequel to his popular first novel “The Never Lonely Planet” which describes his travel experiences, and the places and people he met in many countries, all over the world. “Worlds Apart – a collection of short stories” is a collection of short stories written in his distinctive style. The stories are a fusion of fact with fiction, leaving the reader to guess which situations and characters are real, and which are not?

    Martin Oliver grew up and served an apprenticeship in Coventry, renowned at that time for its car production companies, with the expectation of drifting onto the production line. His fear of spending his working life clocking in and out of a factory, however, led him to join the Merchant Navy and eventually emigrate to Brazil. And so begins an amazing exploration of his experiences, travelling across continents and cultures, breathing in the rich history and absorbing the ever-changing landscape, not without a few bar stops and beer on the way.

    From Brazil and Dubai to Cambodia and Thailand, Oliver delights in the golf, women and nightlife, shares his recollections of his time at sea and the oil exploration industry, explores untouched villages and is haunted by the remnants of atrocities committed the world over. And then there are the people; who would have thought you could find a Liverpool FC supporting tribesman in Eritrea?

    Whilst The Never Lonely Planet is both a travel book and an autobiography, its purpose is also to serve as an inspiration to the reader and to show them that the opportunity to travel is open to almost anyone if they would only take the initiative. The traveller should never be blinded by politics, religion or their ignorance of other cultures.
    On the contrary, a little time spent travelling will result in a new respect and understanding of the people with whom we share our planet.

    Για επαγγελματικούς λόγους αποφάσισα να κάνω ένα ταξίδι στο Ιράν, όμως ποτέ μου δεν φαντάστηκα πως εκεί θα με περίμενε ο νέος δρόμος της ζωής μου. Στα τριάντα τρία μου χρόνια σ’ εκείνο το επαγγελματικό ταξίδι που έκανα στην χώρα της Περσίας, θα άφηνα εκεί για πάντα την καρδιά μου, σε μια λίμνη θάλασσα. Βρήκα τον έρωτα και την απόλυτη αγάπη μακριά από την πατρίδα μου, εκεί βρήκα και την χαμένη μου ψυχή και μαζί με την αγάπη μου τα δώρισα για πάντα στην γυναίκα της ζωής μου. Εκεί στο Ιράν η τύχη μου είχε πολλά φυλαγμένα και θέλησε να περάσω από πολλά στενά περάσματα… Κάποια ήταν πολύ δυσάρεστα, οδυνηρά κι είδα κατάματα ακόμα και τον ίδιο τον θάνατο…

    Περιγραφή:

    Τι είναι η αγάπη αλήθεια; Τι νόημα έχει αυτή η λέξη, που την λέμε πολλές φορές, αλλά δεν την εννοούμε γιατί δεν ξέρουμε την έννοια της. Η αγάπη πρέπει να είναι της αγάπης κι η αγάπη είναι μία και μοναδική, όταν την καταλάβεις και την νιώσεις σαν άνθρωπος, τότε γίνεσαι μικρός Θεός! Γίνεσαι ο κόσμος όλος, γίνεσαι η πλάση, γίνεσαι ατελείωτος, γιατί η αγάπη είναι ατελείωτη. Βγαίνει από τα βάθη της ψυχής σου και χύνεται από τα άκρα σου και όσο την δίνεις, άλλο τόσο βγαίνει, ξεπηδά, γίνεται ποτάμι. Βρίσκει την θάλασσα, γίνεται ατμός, φεύγει πετάει, πάει ψηλά και ξαναγυρίζει πάλι σε σένα, μετά πετάς μαζί της και πας κοντά στο Θεό! Είναι παντού, η αγάπη δεν χάνεται κι όταν εσύ είσαι με την αγάπη σου, είσαι ”ΕΣΥ”, και όπου να πας θα είσαι μοναδικός! Η ζωή μας είναι ένας αγώνας στην αρένα της βιοπάλης και θυσιάζουμε στο βωμό της καθημερινότητας μας, πολλά από τα όνειρα μας και ξεχνάμε να αγαπάμε. Ξεχνάμε ότι υπάρχει η αγάπη, πρέπει να την ψάξουμε και να την ξαναβρούμε… Δυστυχώς κομμάτια κάνουμε την ζωή μας και την σκορπάμε παντού, σαν τα φύλλα από τα δέντρα, σαν τα χιόνια στα βουνά που λιώνουν και γίνονται ποτάμια και περιμένουμε να πάρουν μαζί τους τις πίκρες, τις θύελλες της ζωής και της ψυχής μας…

    Το δεύτερο μέρος της μυθιστορηματικής μου βιογραφίας, είναι το δεύτερο μέρος της ζωής μου. Αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι είναι και το τελευταίο. Δεν θα πω ποτέ ότι είμαι ένας έκπτωτος άγγελος, αλλά ούτε θα αφήσω ποτέ να με εκτοπίσουν, αν δεν το θέλω εγώ. Η ζωή μου συνεχίζεται, με χαρές, δράματα, λύπες και δάκρυα, με συντροφιά και πολύ αγάπη, από τον σύζυγο μου. Σαν άνθρωπος δεν είμαι των λαφύρων, είμαι της ψυχής, των δακρύων, της ανθρωπιάς, της κατανόησης, του σεβασμού…

    Μυθιστόρημα με Τάντρα, έρωτα και περιπέτεια – Γλώσσα Ελληνική

    H απόλαυση του έρωτα, δεν είναι στο κορμί, άλλα είναι κάπου αλλού. Είναι στην ψυχή, τον ”ΈΡΩΤΑ” τον νιώθεις, τον ζεις και τον απολαμβάνεις, μόνο όταν κάνεις αποφλίωση κι αποσαφίνηση του ”ΕΑΥΤΟΥ” σου, από το ”ΕΓΩ” του και στην θέση του βάλεις ”ΕΣΕΝΑ”. Από σένα εξαρτάται να το καταφέρεις και να ζήσεις τον ”ΈΡΩΤΑ” με όλη την σημασία του. Ο έρωτας δεν είναι η πράξη, είναι αυτό που με πολύ σαφήνεια και λεπτομέρεια περιγράφει και ζει ο ήρωας μου. Μείνε για λίγο καιρό μόνος σου, ψάξε και βρες την ψυχή σου, άλλαξε τις κακές συνήθειες κι αποτίναξε από μέσα σου όλα τα ταμπού, τις προκαταλήψεις και τα κοινωνικά πλαίσια που σε δυναστεύουν. Ο ”ΕΡΩΤΑΣ” θέλει χώρο, χρόνο, θέλει μόνο ”ΕΣΕΝΑ”. Δώστα τα όλα με σένα, μαζί με σένα, για σένα και μαζί με το άλλο ”ΜΙΣΟ” σου θα τον ζήσεις στο απόλυτο της ”ΥΠΑΡΞΗΣ” σου. Το απόλυτο είναι τα ενεργειακά κύματα του πυρήνα σου, εκεί είναι το βαθύ στρώμα του ”ΕΑΥΤΟΥ” σου. Δεν είναι η δύναμη στο σώμα σου, στον έρωτα η ύλη δεν υπάρχει καθόλου. Μάθε την ”ΥΠΑΡΞΗ” σου, τι είναι να είσαι ”ΕΣΥ” κι όχι το ”ΕΓΩ” σου, μάθε να είσαι ο ”ΕΑΥΤΟΣ” σου. Ζήσε τον έρωτα και χωρίς την πράξη, μόνο με την ψυχή, χωρίς ψυχή ο έρωτας είναι ο πρώτος που πεθαίνει… Κοίταξτε γύρω σας πόσοι είναι δυστυχισμένοι… Λένε πως κάποτε ερωτεύτηκαν κι όμως ο έρωτας δεν κατοίκησε ποτέ μέσα τους. Ίσως να ήρθε για λίγο, δεν βρήκε ψυχή, αγάπη και πέθανε, ή έφυγε πολύ μακριά.
