INTO AFRICA with 3 Kids, 13 Crates and a Husband.

If you thought moving to Spain had its trials and tribulations, can you imagine what it was like moving to Africa with 3 kids, 13 crates and a husband? That is what Ann Patras did back in 1980.
There was no Facebook, emails or dedicated documentary channels to give you a clue what it would be like way back then.

This light-hearted, sometimes hilarious book recounts the experiences of the author and her family as they muddled through their first year living in Zambia. With a relaxed writing style and the odd mild expletive, the author is not afraid of self-mockery.

Fairly recently released, the book is available (in Kindle; e-reader; paperback & large print) from Amazon. (Links below.) A limited number of signed paperbacks are available direct from the author in Alhaurin el Grande, who can be contacted on
