About this title

Synopsis:

'Have you ever wanted to quit your job and travel the world?' After years of deferring this dream, author Dominic Carrillo—without much money or a solid plan—bought a one-way ticket to Italy to try it out. What unfolded was a year abroad that far exceeded the author’s imagination: traveling throughout Western Europe, working in a convent in Nigeria, Greek island hopping, and finally settling down in Eastern Europe. This memoir is a collection of stories—at once adventurous, funny, and thoughtful—which offer a glimpse into the wonderful and strange possibilities that open up when somebody steps out into the world with a modicum of courage and no definitive game plan.

From the Back Cover:

"Americano Abroad is very amusing. It is riddled with wit, situational humor, and self-deprecating humor. Mr. Carillo is not above making light of his own mistakes and cross-cultural blunders. He writes with a light-heartedness that summons smiles and keeps pages turning. At the same time, there is a serious element to Mr. Carillo's telling of his adventures. He includes the stories of lessons he learned, people he met, and some experiences that carried deep meaning for him. Americano Abroad is fun, but it is much more than just clever games. 

There are many people in the world fortunate enough to have had opportunity to travel. Those who fall into that category will enjoy reading this account of another traveller's adventure. Many of the author's experiences will feel familiar to anyone who has travelled before or lived in another culture. There are also many people who have never had the chance to explore another country or culture. For those people, this book may be an appealing surrogate. They will be allowed to share in Mr. Carillo's adventures - the ups, the downs, and the experiences along the way. Regardless of whether or not a person has actually travelled, this book will certainly be enjoyable for anyone who has ever entertained the notion of travel or living abroad.

I rate Dominic Carillo's Americano Abroad 4 out of 4 stars. It was entertaining as well as meaningful and even a little bit educational."-OnlineBookClub.org
