Braving the World: Adventures in Travel and Retirement

“When it came right down to it, our dream trip felt like falling off a cliff.”

After early retirement, in 2017 Pam and her husband Dave packed four suitcases and one beer cooler full of insulin and boarded a one-way flight to Italy for a year-long dream trip.

The dream was to live like locals, find out-of-the-way restaurants, and watch the seasons change.  But behind every dream, there is the reality.

What happens when two people retire from their full-time jobs and realize they have developed separate lives? Is it possible to reconnect, despite the stress of traveling, while living alone together, 24/7, in small apartments? Is there such a thing as too much togetherness? Their dream trip came with other challenges—managing Pam’s Type 1 diabetes, dodging political unrest in Barcelona, and navigating water restrictions in Egypt.   

Through the ups and downs of travel, Pam and Dave start to rebuild their lives together… and look for a little adventure.


Meet Pam Saylor

Pam Saylor grew up in the landlocked Midwest, reading books and dreaming of travel. While on a year-long trip visiting nine countries and two continents, she managed to control her Type 1 diabetes and reconnect with her husband. A former paralegal turned contented retiree and travel addict, Pam lives with her husband Dave in Colorado. Pam and Dave are currently busy trying to agree on their next adventure. Braving the World: Adventures in Travel and Retirement is her first book.

From the author of Girth and Not Going Gently comes the hilarious tale of someone finding life a little tough at the top.

Gentle giant Jacob Waxman probably isn’t the right person to be overseeing the ethics of a voracious international bank.

It was never his dream job and he’s giving it his best shot, but when he gets trapped on the top floor of the building, Jacob’s going to find out that truth is the first casualty.

Because he certainly can’t tell his boss Brittany. She thinks she’s finally seen a spark of ethical passion in him and had only just asked him out on the date he now can’t attend.

Nor does he feel he can tell his colleague Helen and that’s more painful. She and Jacob are the best of friends, but there’s always a lot unsaid between them and she’s prone to panic, so this could be another truth she can’t handle.

Somehow though, he does feel he can tell his online delivery driver. Which leads to some very unorthodox outsourcing solutions.

And yet this new approach to the truth he’s forced to live with may just fix Jacob’s failing career and his non-existent love life. Hell, it might even help fix some of the other problems in his life that need to be addressed.

Just so long as he can keep everything under control.

Michael Hollinghurst is a successful corporate lawyer living a comfortable, suburban life in leafy North West London. But on 7 July 2007, his life is transformed when he steps on a London underground train targeted by Islamist suicide bombers. While most passengers in his carriage are killed, Michael survives the explosion but is confined to a wheelchair as a result. Coming to terms with his predicament and controlling his own feelings of guilt as a survivor conspire to push him in a direction that is out of character and a tad reckless.

Much to his surprise, his shambolic scheme yields results and is brought to the attention of both GCHQ and a terrorist cell. But before long, dark forces begin to gather and close in on him. There is seemingly no way out for Michael Hollinghurst. He has become, quite literally, a sitting target.
