The Value of Journey by Mereo Books
by Nicholas Brown
In his first book, ”Better than Rich and Famous”, Nicholas Brown told the story of his youthful days working with VSO in Papua New Guinea. In this sequel he relates how, on his return in a salaried position, he continued in helping to develop the handcrafts sector.
Life was not so carefree this time; with independence around the corner, these were uncertain times. Yet alongside the business of travelling to remote villages to help the locals, the adventures continued: surviving storms on the high seas, having fun at parties, climbing mountains in tropical heat and rain.
The Value of Journey relates the remarkable time Nick enjoyed working in an extraordinary country in transition, in witnessing a diversity of cultures there and in travelling through parts of Asia. This is a story of both the idyllic and the traumatic, the reality of having a good time and the virtue in doing good and ultimately better understanding what is important in life.
