Beschreibung

A laugh-out-loud, heartwarming memoir.
**Winner of ‘Best Travel Narrative’ by the British Guild of Travel Writers.**

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

"Probably the best book I have read this millenium."

"Fantastic, hilarious, painful. Completely un-put-downable!"


Childhood sweethearts, Joe and Joy are broke and bored. They’re also tired of smelling of fish.


When offered the chance to escape from the dreary market stalls of England to run a bar on a sub-tropical island, they recklessly jump at the opportunity - despite their spectacular lack of experience.


In Tenerife, dreams of a better life overseas are soon crushed by mini-mafias, East European prostitutes and biblical-grade cockroach infestations.


Joe and Joy's foreign fantasy turns into a nightmare as they find themselves trapped with a failing bar in a foreign land, pandering to a bar full of oddball expats while trying to stop their relationship crashing into the rocks.


Can they save their business, their dreams, and their relationship before it's too late...


"If you've ever wondered if the grass really is greener on the other side, you need to read this hilarious and heartwarming memoir now!"

"A book full of humor, laughter and tears."

"Loved the story, the humour, the characters - found it hard to put down."

"Thank you for hours of true entertainment..."

"I've read a lot of travel-abroad memoirs and enjoyed many of them. This is my favorite... by a long way."

    11 of 75 for 2015. So tell me. If someone gives up their home, their job, everything they know and travels to a foreign country to take on massive debt by buying a business with which they have absolutely no experience, are they brave or foolhardy? In More Ketchup than Salsa, Joe Cawley recounts the first six months of his life as a bar/restaurant owner in the Canary Islands, a part of Spain off the Moroccan coast. Without speaking Spanish, or having any background in the restaurant/bar business, he and his brother and their respective girl friends take the challenge and leave the UK for warmer climes. As much fun as this sounds, and Joe tells the story in a most enjoyable fashion, you have to figure that he left an awful lot out. Still, if you're in the mood for a tale about folk taking leave of their senses and everything else to become ex pat business owners on Tenerife, you'll enjoy this book.
