About the Book

Advance Praise for A Happy Journey
“We could all do with a little Larry in our lives. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. May you relish every word as I did.” —Dr. Martha Lee, Clinical Sexologist, Eros Coaching, Singapore “The stories he shares are all around us; they are in everyone we meet and interact with. Larry’s true gift isn’t the great friend he is or the fine example of an American that he is, but rather the storyteller, traveler, and humanist.” —Captain Kurt Hummeldorf, DC, USN, Manassas, Virginia “Larry’s book is provocative and captivating reading. He has an unusual power of observation, a love for people, and an enthusiasm for adventure.” —Jacqueline Delaverdac DeMent, Kalamazoo, Michigan Part travelogue, part geography and history lesson, and all mixed with subtle humor, A Happy Journey captures the experiences of author Larry Welch. An expatriate living in Singapore and Thailand who traveled to many countries, Welch narrates tales about real people who seem to be a degree removed from the ordinary. The fifty-three vignettes, first appearing in his electronic column, “On the run …,” reflect humanity’s rich diversity—from entertaining ghosts to riding camels to monkeys begging for peanuts on a hotel balcony in Malaysia.
