The world calls the Falkland Islands harsh and isolated. The Carters called it home....In 1982, war brought The Falkland Islands into the spotlight. When Jennifer and her family put down roots in an unspoiled community on West Falkland, they can’t help but see the unruly climate and the close proximity to a frozen wasteland. How could a place like this be worth fighting for? The Carters quickly learn that the Falklands way of life is friendliness and self-sufficiency. Their new life becomes one of abundant wildlife and growing their own food, but it never strays from the island’s true British identity. Part homesteading, part off-the-grid, and all charm, this loving testimony to the resilient people of the islands will have you adding the Falklands to your bucket list in an instant. My Falkland Islands Life is the story of one family’s adventure in a sub-Antarctic British territory 8,000 miles from the United Kingdom. The Falklands are situated in the South Atlantic, to the east of Argentina, South America. Whether you live on the islands, plan to travel there, or enjoy a fascinating travelogue, you’ll love Jen Carter’s engaging memoir of a charming life at the bottom of the world. Buy My Falkland Islands Life to discover the true Falklands today! 1.

Hindustan Ambassador
54,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Hindustan Ambassador is a car manufactured by Hindustan Motors of India. It has been in production since 1958 without much modifications or changes and is based on the Morris Oxford III model first made by the Morris Motor Company at Cowley, Oxford in the United Kingdom from 1956 to 1959. Despite its British origins, the Ambassador is considered the definitive Indian car and is fondly called "The king of Indian roads". The automobile is manufactured by Hindustan Motors at its Uttarpara plant near Kolkata, West Bengal.It is the most popular car in India and is perceived to be best suited to the harsh Indian terrain. Its iconic status was helped by the fact that it was the preferred means of conveyance of India's political leadership, including the Prime Minister of India, before they moved on[citation needed] to other luxury cars and SUVs. In 2002, then-Indian PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee started traveling in an armored BMW 7i vehicle for security purposes. However, some prominent Indian politicians, such as Sonia Gandhi, continue with their preference for the Hindustan Ambassador.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The winter of 1946 1947 was a harsh European winter noted for its effects in the United Kingdom. The UK experienced several cold spells, beginning on 21 January 1947, bringing large drifts of snow to the country which caused roads and railways to be blocked. Coal supplies, already low following the Second World War, struggled to get through to power stations and many stations were forced to shut down for lack of fuel. The government introduced several measures to cut power consumption including restricting domestic electricity to 19 hours per day and cutting industrial supplies completely. In addition, radio broadcasts were limited, television services were suspended, some magazines were ordered to stop being published and newspapers were cut in size.

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

VIVIAN DANIELS is a counsellor and founder of City Life Changers, an outreach ministry founded in London, United Kingdom, for visiting those in prison, detention centres and those in the midst of harsh and difficult city circumstances. Born and raised in the south of Nigeria and mother to three sons, she left behind a successful career and multiple businesses to pursue a heartfelt calling in her life from God. 'You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.' 1 John 4:4 Vivian's testament is one of true grit and determination, which she often refers to as an 'unrelenting faith in God'. Coming to London (a scripture-laden journey) is a brief chronicle of my life's journey. A journey which, in retrospect, lovingly exhibits the very hand of God at work, a comforting and nurturing work on me through to others . The word of God is alive, the living scriptures are not dormant, they are the very breath and essence of spiritual sustenance from God.' Vivian Daniels

Yaard and Abroad - From a Jamaican Perspective
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Yaard and Abroad is a beautiful collection of short stories which exemplify the Jamaican culture and its people, those living on the island and those residing overseas. The book begins with a story that depicts the genesis of the island's history - the coming of Christopher Columbus and the Spanish conquistadors, and continues with different stories that illustrate the Jamaican psyche and the uniqueness of Jamaica as an island, and the nature and attitudes of her people. Stories such as 'Where is Jamaica?' and 'Rent-a-Dreads' tell the reader what is good and bad about the island. In 'Where is Jamaica' the island disappears into thin air and despite air and sea searches by the United States navy the island is nowhere to be found. Empty seas lie where the island of Jamaica used to be. With the disappearance of the island it is lamented that the world would have lost so much that is uniquely Jamaican; over-proof white rum, authentic reggae music, to mention a couple. 'Rent-a-Dreads' on the other hand is about the harsh reality that tourists are sometimes preyed upon. The book contains a total of nineteen short stories which are set on the island of Jamaica (yaard) and in the United Kingdom (abroad). Each story depicts different topics that are true and reflective of the nature of Jamaica and Jamaicans. 'Bun' describes the musings of a wife whose husband appears to be giving her 'bun' which is the Jamaican vernacular for having an affair. 'Vextation' gives a humorous look at a Jamaican domestic worker attempting to get a live-in job and constantly putting her foot in her mouth with the potential employer. This book will appeal to Jamaicans at home and abroad and can also be enjoyed by a world-wide audience.
