Better than Rich and Famous by Mereo Books
by Nicholas Brown
After three years selling gaskets under the grey skies of England, Nick Brown decided he’d had enough. But how to escape? He knew he would never be rich and famous and his dream of seeing the world seemed out of reach. Eventually he found a way, travelling to the South Pacific to ‘captain’ a cargo boat running cocoa and copra between the islands. Any notion of a tropical paradise soon evaporated when Nick found himself living without electricity, washing in the river and sailing treacherous seas. But life got better and soon he found himself flying around the country in light aircraft, travelling by dug-out canoe to meet the locals in remote villages, climbing the tallest mountain in Oceania and even sailing the Coral Sea, just for the fun of it. This is his entertaining
story of those years.
