Amusing and entertaining travel stories

David Rowley releases his highly enjoyable, self-deprecating humorous travel stories from Borneo, Thailand, Bangkok, Vietnam and Cambodia

Erections in the Far East
Erections in the Far East
Nov. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- ‘Join Rowley in his light hearted and self-deprecating antics as he works his way around SE Asia, building communication towers on and off the beaten track. In Borneo he heads up river to remote jungle long-houses to provide the natives with internet access. He avoids death on the towers from a variety of beasts, keeps the locals on their toes by blocking their roads with overturned cranes, and, with the help of Angus, his trusty Scottish sidekick, they manage to undo much of the respect the British have earned there over the last three hundred years. Thailand allows Rowley time to ponder Thai culture; from the exciting go-go bars of Bangkok to the loneliness of the north east, where he spends a year living in a two star hotel. Eventually he begins to enjoy life there until one of his beloved towers starts falling over and he resumes his “You are a worry man” mode. Sampling the highs and lows of Vietnamese life, the misery of pouring concrete by night and wondering where his life went so wrong. In Cambodia he tours every province and is worshipped by his intimate team of young civil engineers, though it’s not they who finally bring him to a grinding halt with a variety of embarrassing ailments.

It’s not all humour and frolics. Rowley also gives a brief but interesting insight into the history of each location and the influence of the western world.

Author David Rowley says: “Having always enjoyed reading travel genre I decided that with fifteen years of working overseas I would document some of my best and worse memories. They are few and far between but those books I enjoy most are by writers who have been placed in a work environment somewhere whether they like it or not. I have written from the self-deprecating humour angle and would hope that the reader had a chuckle, or at least a smile, every other page or so. Keeping the material clean throughout was perhaps the hardest part, I wanted to avoid lots of swearing which seems to be commonplace in books covering the working man’s environment. Though discussing subjects such as STI’s without bordering on the cruder style wasn’t always easy.”
