Summary

How much would you pay to survive? 
 
Mum-of-three Ronni Ashcroft had just pieced her life back together after her husband left. On a remote spur of the Scottish Highlands, she kept her successful guest house going and even met a new man, Bishop.
 
But it turned out that Bishop had secrets. He had shady connections and shadier plans to use the coastal town as a European gateway for drugs, guns – and something far worse. Now he's disappeared, and Ronnie wants answers.
 
Is he in trouble or simply ignoring her? Was she just his play-thing from the start? And, most importantly, is he dragging them both into something that neither of them will survive?

    Before roads and rail, the industrial hubs of Great Britain were linked to the ports by a network of manmade waterways. These canals fell into disuse in the early part of the twentieth century, but in the last fifty years they have undergone a complete revival. These newly transformed waterways have become attractive destinations, and for newcomers to a city, walking its waterways will unlock famous highlights as well as hidden delights. And that is just what this book does too. 
     
    With the lavish colour photography for which he is renowned, Britain's 'biographer photographer' Derek Pratt explores all the major cities and towns linked by waterways, bringing to life the canals and their environs with images that are stunning, stylish and beautiful. Through interesting, informative and typically quirky text, Derek also reveals a whole treasure trove of fascinating things most people don't know about these industrial landscapes, whilst also explaining the commercial history of the waterways, their subsequent decline and recent revitalisation. 
     
    Towns and cities covered include: London, Oxford, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Stoke on Trent and the Potteries, Leeds, Gloucester, Reading, Birmingham and the Black Country, Rugby, Worcester, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Bath.

    This book was written to help bridge the gap between the seasoned Road Warrior and the beginning business traveler. The author has spent almost his entire life traveling in the pursuit of economic opportunity, leisure travel with friends and family.  He has traveled to every U.S. state, lived in Europe and the Middle East, worked on location in Central Asia and the Silk Route, and traveled multiple times to Australia.  Flights have included up to 25-hour door-to-door flights from the East Coast of the U.S. to Sydney, Australia, arriving at 6:30AM, and then going straight to work. He also recently flew around the world and spent the new Years in Bangcock and Rio de Janeiro.   He has experienced every travel problem you can imagine.
     
    He and his family lived in Denmark for three years.  He also recently completed a two-year project in the United Arab Emirates that included time in Saudi Arabia. When you spend so many years on the road, winning business, managing projects, plus carving out personal time with family, you build Road Warrior experience. Not only responding to what can go wrong on domestic and international travel, but you also learn how to adapt and solve the litany of travel glitches that occur. When you live on the road, you also need to discover a life worth living. There is an unbelievable amount of adventure out there when doing business travel.  There are also many risks. The key is to develop travel-savvy habits that benefit you, who you work for and your family.  From extensive international travel, you will grow professionally, personally, and your family can also gain in some of the benefits of what other destinations hold.  It is a great gift to include your family to see major historical sights and attractions.  
     
    There are challenges to overcome, rules to live by, but great rewards if you work at managing your business travel style. Road Warrior business travel is something we can all share in. To share the ongoing information exchange with business travelers, go to www.RWBible.com and join a community of world travelers who make a living on the road, have problems and experiences to share, and who can open the door to huge opportunities for travel learning, economic growth and entertainment. My advice is to be travel-wise, proactive in your planning and management, and this will lead to an experience you will never forget.
