Stories of expatriates living in exotic places. Pam Scott has lived much
of her life in South East Asia. And her travel tales are fascinating.

great to live here?'
Perhaps your dream is a tropical island in the
Caribbean, or a teeming city in the mysterious East? Or your own year in
Provence? Maybe you've even gone on to imagine actually walking out of your
old mundane existence to exchange it for a life in some exotic location.

'one day'. Living the Dream

to the wind and headed into unknown territory.
