Good morning dear friends, today I would like to introduce my English books.
And then came summer (ebook)
This is a true story. I am telling this story
because I want to warn all ladies -
particularly older women and those living alone. Nothing is invented or glossed over, I have just changed the names.
Susanne never thought that
the summer of 2011,
which had started so well,
would change into something which would remain forever in her memory.
Even today, after almost two years,
when she thinks about the events of that summer,
a tingle runs down her spine.
My dream, Ayurveda in India (ebook)
Dorothee discovered the perfect place, the Little Flower Retreat and
Spa. With excited anticipation, she thought about making all the
necessary arrangements for the long journey. Flights, visa and the
Retreat reservation were all booked in record time, but she started to
be worried about making such a long journey alone.
In her story,
Dorothee tells you about how she achieved her desire; about the stopover
in Dubai, where she imagined being in Scheherazade's Arabian Nights;
and about how she experienced and enjoyed being in a foreign culture
with the added bonus of losing weight at the same time. She tells her
story with clarity and humour and explains the reader all about the
Ayurveda treatment, a 4000 year-old healing method, a speciality in
Kerala, and about the Kathakali theatre, the Backwaters and the tea
plantation area in the mountains; and Dorothee includes little snippets
of her very personal experiences and delight.
Ayurveda in India - My dream goes on ... (ebook)
Does my dream develop into a reality?
When I first visited Kerala I
was fascinated by the appeal of this country. On my first trip in 2012, I
was impressed by the scenic beauty and the friendliness of the people.
The Panchakarma changed my perspective on life and the way in which I
should continue to live. All you readers of my first book “Ayurveda in
India ...” will understand what I experienced and the effect it had.
Was it just a dream or was it truly real? I needed to reassure myself so, in November 2013, I flew for a second time to Kerala.
“My dream goes on ...” I give additional information about Panchakarma
treatments, which some readers had requested, and further experiences of
my second journey, my personal encounters and photographs. Please
immerse yourself in this experience and be a secret fellow traveller.
I should have been a cat, because ...
for me, one life is not enough
(Print and ebook)
At 68, Dorothee Sargon had a daydream which inspired her to begin writing her special story. For her, life was exciting, full of adventure, often stressful and she was often faced with new challenges. She learned to excel in many professions, including those usually associated with men. In this intriguing story, both funny and sad, Dorothee recounts experiences from her private and professional life showing how she carved her successful path through life. The word 'surrender' is not in her vocabulary, so she has continued on her way, even if sometimes the road seemed rocky and hopeless. Dorothee has worked as a Management Apprentice, Shorthand Typist and Clerk; Au Pair in America; Administrator, Secretary and Personal Assistant. She has managed and run a bicycle shop and a newsagents; has worked as a self-employed Beautician; and a Specialist Teacher for Sports Massage; and, together with her husband and also alone, she has owned and run a petrol station. And, as well as undertaking many full-time jobs, she has managed to cope with all that life has thrown at her as a little girl during and after the war, a young woman growing up, a wife, a mother and a grandmother. Looking back, she says: "For me, one life is not enough".
Goodbye Working Life!
Hello Retirement! We are leaving for Spain!
(Print and ebook)
This book tells the true experiences of a retired couple who spend most of their retirement in Spain for the sun and the mild climate. This includes the building of their dream home. Despite all the difficulties, it is the greatest adventure of their lives. After more than a year of construction, they move into their ‘casa’. They make a checklist of repairs and improvements. Yes, German attention to detail does sometimes get in the way. They move into two further building phases and quickly learn to deal with craftsmen. But coping with the local authorities almost brings them to despair. Finally, they are forced to survive an armed robbery. Read this book and learn how and whether they managed it. Similarities with people, names and locations are purely coincidental and unintentional. This book was written to show people in the prime of life, that it is possible to handle and master new tasks even beyond 60. You need only a partner who pulls in the same direction, courage, the will, the stamina, the money and a sense of adventure. At least that is the opinion of Dorothee and Alexander.
