Overview

This is a touching, thrilling, inspiring adventure of two women who discover their true potential, and so much more.
For Jamie and Carol, life in the United States has been filled with hardship and loss. Following their own separate paths, but each searching for a more meaningful future and financially better times, they are each accepted into the Foreign Service. When they meet on assignment in Chile, a friendship begins that will span many years—and many continents!
“Ticket to Tomorrow: From the Bizarre to the Bazaar” follows Jamie and Carol—their careers, their travels, their loves, and their mishaps—though many exotic, and not-so-exotic, places. Readers will walk in their footsteps through hilarious language classes in Paris, struggle hauling water up four flights of stairs in Turkey, develop a manic addiction to pinochle in Morocco, date the sultry locals in Chile, and shop until you drop in Jakarta.
And still the adventures are just beginning! From “Chop Chop Square” in Saudi Arabia to risking life and limb driving in Japan, Jamie and Carol take readers still further on adventure after adventure in Paraguay, Djibouti, Swaziland, Cyprus and Baghdad. And would you believe the best pizza in the world is found in Malawi?
No one ever said working or living overseas would be easy, but Jamie and Carol find more than their share of trouble, adventures and memories to last ten lifetimes!
“For the world traveler or those who wish they were, Jamie and Carol have delivered a non-stop romp that will entertain from start to finish,”

Meet the Author

Jamie was born and raised on a 50 acre farm just outside the small town of Vienna, Ohio. Her dad was away in the Navy, so it was just mom and her brother at home, with a whole network of family living in the neighboring town of Howland.
Jamie’s dad returned from his service with the Navy and the family moved to Hollywood, California, where her dad and mom opened a restaurant. After a couple of years, they moved to Palo Alto, California where Jamie spent her high school and college years.
Jamie is divorced, has two children, twin granddaughters and presently lives in Florida.
***
Carol was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1948, one of four children, she being the oldest girl. She joined the State Department in 1989 and travelled all over the world. Carol was a single mother of two children struggling to make ends meet until she went overseas with the foreign service.
Carol retired after 20 years of service and a fascinating career. She now resides in Florida.
