Présentation de l'éditeur

Have you ever thought about making a new life abroad?

"Dreams can come true!"

"Fantastic, hilarious, painful. Completely un-put-downable. Probably the best book I have read this millenium!"

"If you buy one book this year... get this!"

"Brilliant book... very funny..."

"It was while holding aloft a not altogether pleasant-smelling mackerel that the decision was made. The March rain hammered on the rotting tin roof high above the market stall, where I had spent the last six months pushing out dubious trays of marine life at three for a fiver. After a two-week holiday in Tenerife, one of Spain's Canary Islands, Joy and I vowed that a life in fish giblets was not going to be our destiny and a life in the sun, was.

A complete lack of catering experience, zero business acumen and the sum of our vastly wealth barely reaching waist level of a ceramic pig did little to deter our enthusiasm. “Where do we sign?” we replied. And then the whole silly, sunny saga began..." Joe Cawley

When Joe and his girlfriend Joy decide to trade in their life on a cold Lancashire fish market to run a bar in the Tenerife sunshine, they anticipate a paradise of sea, sand and siestas. Little did they expect their foreign fantasy to turn out to be about as exotic as a wet Monday morning.

Amidst a host of eccentric locals, homesickness and the occasional cockroach infestation, pint-pulling novices Joe and Joy struggle with the expat culture and learn that, although the skies might be bluer, the grass is definitely not always greener.

An hilarious travelogue exposing the wild and wacky characters of an expat community in a familiar holiday destination, More Ketchup than Salsa is full of humor and is a must-read travel memoir for anybody who has ever dreamed about moving abroad, finding a job overseas or even momentarily flirted with the idea of 'doing a Shirley Valentine' in these trying economic times.

More Ketchup than Salsa - a funny travel memoir like no other!

  • "Dreams can come true"
  • "Great book! A real page-turning real life read!"
  • "A book full of laughter and tears."
  • "Joe's travel writing in itself is of a very high standard - descriptive, funny, observant."
  • "...by far the best book I have read in years"

˃˃˃ "One of those 'Just one more chapter then I'll turn the light out' books... before you know it the sun is rising! Couldn't put it down!"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful and Hillarious 9 août 2012
Par Linda Parkinson-Hardman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I would defy anyone who has ever lived in the UK, or anywhere else that is often cold, wet and rainy, not to say that they have had a secret yearning to change their life by heading for a life abroad. Every years, millions of us make the cattle class journey to European resorts and we watch the Brit's who have made it, those who live permanently in our holiday destinations, with envy, thinking `what if`. But, is the grass always greener in the sun? Of course not, it's usually non-existent, the landscape can be barren and you definitely don't get the manicured countryside that I love about Britain.

In More Ketchup than Salsa, Joe had me laughing so hard that I spilled a cup of tea all over the bed. His tale of travelling from Bolton Fish Market to Tenerife Costa del Bognor opens up the can of worms that most of us never even consider when we are sitting sipping coffee on a terrace and dreaming. His daily battles with cockroaches, the local mafia, animals and the never ending variety of people that stepped through his door, was the wake up call I needed to think again about what it was I might just do if I ever decided to take the plunge and live abroad. This is the perfect book to take on holiday with you especially if you are already planning to make that move.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun read for anyone who has dreamed of chucking it all and opening a bar 18 juin 2012

First off, I would say this book is NOT about Tenerife per se. If you're looking for a travel guide, this is not it! However, I enjoyed it very much. It's more of a "fish out of water" tale that will entertain anyone who has experience with tourism.

A nice light read...the kind you might enjoy lying on a beach somewhere like...well like Tenerife.  Do not expect more than casual company from these characters, but I did laugh out loud at least 2 times, and that is worth the time spent.

Easy, breezy, interesting and, at times, laugh-aloud funny, but WTH are the copy editors?! Really poorly edited to the point of distracting.
