Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go on holiday and never go back? Alex and his wife Chrissy decided that if they were going to change their lives they had better do it before their 2 small children got too old and too settled. They gave up good jobs, put their house on the market, said goodbye to bemused friends and relatives, found new homes for their geese and goats and moved from rural England to the other side of the world.
They chose the jungle city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand where they had no friends, no contacts and no income (and no geese or goats). A year later having survived near bankruptcy, rabies, cock fights, police road blocks, the mysterious elephant cowboys and a Yoda like monk who sold them a lucky charm wooden penis, they managed to set up what has become an award winning travel company, “The Life Change People”.
This unusual business aims to change people’s lives in just 7 days. Reading this book might just change yours!

The Minelab Excalibur has been hailed as the best beach metal detector in the world and is widely used by many metal detectorists, both hobbyists and professionals alike. This book takes the reader through the first six months of the author owning and searching almost every day with a Minelab Excalibur and gives a valuable insight into what the potential user of such a machine is bound to experience. Minelab Excalibur Diary provides an unparalleled look at the ups and downs of mastering the Minelab Excalibur and deals with the problems that the beginner is likely to experience with his new machine. It also covers some of the modifications that can be made to make beach metal detecting easier, as well as dealing with the changing conditions of beaches and tides that can make a day’s shore hunting either a golden success or a complete failure. Perhaps most importantly, the book also conveys to the reader the necessity of developing the right attitude to successful beach metal detecting with the Minelab Excalibur metal detector. Minelab Excalibur Diary is unique in as much as it is the true record of a metal detectorist’s first seven months spent in a concentrated effort searching a single Thai beach rather than a conventional guide or a reference book. Although the diary is set on a beach in Thailand, the book provides a valuable and enjoyable read and will assist the owners of Minelab Excalibur metal detectors to a greater understanding of both their machines and the shorelines of any beaches in any country in the world.
Foreign Teachers in Thailand
Dark comedy and a sometimes brutally realistic portrayal of the kinds of dubious characters who infest school staff rooms across Thailand, make this book essential reading for anyone who has ever taught English in Asia, and those who want to know why they do it!
In hindsight, maybe fluttering off the tour guide’s red line wasn’t such a good idea. But Jon has neither hindsight nor foresight as his vacation unfolds in real time. Acting without consequence, he discovers that real life is funnier, crazier, and more interesting than fiction, as he encouters crooked tour guides, transvestite karaoke stars, restroom massage gangs, and angels – not with wings and halos, but g-strings and high heels.
Rückblickend betrachtet war es vielleicht keine so gute Idee, abseits der roten Linie des Reiseführers zu flattern. Aber Jon blickt, während sein Urlaub in Echtzeit vergeht, weder zurück noch nach vorne. Indem er handelt, ohne Konsequenzen tragen zu müssen, entdeckt er, dass das wahre Leben spassiger, verrückter und interessanter ist als die Fiktion und begegnet dabei Fussbal-Hooligans, unehrlichen Tourführern, Domino-Stricherinnen, Wurzelverkäufern, transvestiten Karaoke-Stars, Toiletten-Massage-Gangs und Engeln. Nicht solchen mit Flügeln und Heiligenscheinen, sondern solchen mit G-Strings und hohen Absätzen.
Während der Verfolgung der Befriedigung seiner oberflächlichen Triebe entdeckt er, dass er selbst in Gefahr schwebt, ein fiktionaler Charakter zu werden, und ringt darum, die Linie zwischen Fantasie und Wirklichkeit zu definieren. Denkend, die Wahrheit sei zu kompliziert, spinnt er ein Netz von Täuschungen, welches sich schliesslich entwirrt und ihn kopfüber in die Schmetterlingsfalle führt.
