This review is from: A Beach Less Traveled: From Corporate Chaos to Flip-Flop Perfumer (Kindle Edition)
I'm a typical wage slave that goes on Caribbean vacations whenever my wife and I can find the time. Every so often, I dream of taking our savings, finding a small place to live with a lower life style but also lower stress and aggravation. So, I saw this book and decided I had to read it. It is about someone who made the choice I hve dreamed of...and I had to see how it ended up. However, the author went one step further and actually realized a dream of opening a perfume shop selling his own fragrances.
So, this book tells his journey of carefully shedding his corporate life and building a new life on the fastasic island of St. Martin. The journey is at once liberating and also a madding struggle against a third world bureacracy. Becoming a legal resident and opening a business on St. Martin (the French side) is not for the feint of heart. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting the author and his wife at his parfume business on the island. It made the realization of his dream so real for me. I thoroghly enjoyed the book but recognize the book is about the author's journey but also a how-to for anyone who wants to travel the same road.
