9781418498382: A Year on Planet Alzheimer: and a little longer in Canada

What happens when a single parent from London heads for Canada to care for an elderly lady in case it's fun?Described by readers as a cross between Bridget Jones and Bill Bryson, this book isn't quite a travelogue, although Vancouver Bus Station's ceiling will leave quite an impression. It is just what happened. It is life and the sheer unexpectedness of the way other people live it, not just the snow dump but the incredulity we generated by wanting to see it. The story of an adventure would have a few more shimmering sunsets dancing over majestic waves. There are some majestic waves, naturally, but we are more obsessed with meatballs. It is therefore the story of an escapade.

About the Author:

Carolyn has been a psychologist, a paramedic, a proofreader and several other things, not all of them beginning with P. She began writing the day she decided to try and see the world...doing both just to find out if she could. Parts of this book appear in the Rough Guides' third Women Travel anthology, an event which quite turned her head.Born and bred in London, England, Carolyn and her son now live permanently back in Kitchener, Ontario. They run a B&B there which they share with sundry pets and call heaven. Carolyn is currently working on the tale of how that came about, which is at least as odd as this story of her first love affair with Canada.
