Published in 2012, my own journey entitled: 'Chartered Territory - An Engineer Abroad'
This kept me fairly busy for a few years, here's the blurb:
'Ben Zabulis' Chartered Territory is a rich and diverse account of sixteen years spent living and working abroad as an engineer, from the chaos of everyday life in Lagos to the unique Hong Kong, via the conformity of salaryman life in Japan and the wonders of the Indian subcontinent.
Personal accounts of climbing Mount Fuji and taking part in dragon boat races go hand in hand with events on a global scale, as the author experiences a Nigerian coup d'etat, the handover of Hong Kong from Great Britain to China, the terrifying SARS outbreak and the opening of Bhutan to more commercial tourism. A unique, light-hearted and warm first-hand account of ordinary and not so-ordinary life in foreign cultures will leave the reader hungering after adventure themselves.'
