Can a two-career couple really pick up stakes and move to Provence? Keith and Val had a dream – to live in Provence, the land of brilliant sunlight, charming hilltop villages and the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. But there were two problems: they weren’t French speakers and they had full-time jobs. So they came up with a plan… Follow their adventures (and misadventures) as they quit their jobs, become consultants and split their time between two countries. Laugh along as they build a life in Provence, slowly mastering a new language and making friends with the locals over long meals and just a bit too much wine. This light and breezy memoir is full of wry observations on France, like the power of cheese to sway elections, the right and wrong ways for men to kiss each other, and the law requiring that blood donors must speak French. If you’ve ever dreamed of changing gears and learning what joie de vivre is really all about, you won’t want to miss this delightful book. Available on Amazon: click here to buy
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be able to employ someone like Harry Potter or Captain Jack Sparrow? Can you imagine receiving a job application from one of these fictional characters which included their skills, their previous employment and the job title that they wanted to apply for? Over at Exporta Global we got curious about what job role these fictional characters might apply for if they were to leave their current profession and apply for a new position. For example, we thought with Hannibal Lecter having previously enjoyed his life of being a cannibal, he’d perhaps quite like to be a food critic. Or that Yoda might want to utilise his knowledge of The Force to become a hypnotist. Take a look at the infographic below to read more about job applications of fictional characters.
