When Marcus arrived in Sydney to celebrate the millennium after a four-month journey across fifteen countries, he realized his solo backpacking trip had been the best learning experience of his life. Hungry for more adventures and travels, he was determined to pursue a career abroad.

From feeling illiterate and enduring awkward moments with colleagues to surviving a near-death experience climbing Mt Fuji, expat life after landing his dream job in Tokyo wasn’t all glamorous. Finding ways to deal with the adversities, he embraced the beauty that Japan has to offer, built meaningful friendships, and found new purpose in life.

Perfect for fans of Tune in Tokyo: The Gaijin Diaries by Tim Anderson, Pretty Good Number One: An American Family Eats Tokyo by Matthew Amster-Burton, and 21 Years of Wisdom: One Man’s Extraordinary Odyssey in Japan by Darrell Gartrell.

“Having had my first book published by a major NYC, I didn’t know what to expect when working with Victoria Twead and Ant Press. What a revelation! She responds quickly, kindly, patiently, and accurately, and she’s a whiz at promotion and marketing. I’ll be writing at least two more books, and I’ll definitely use Ant Press again and again.”
