9780985028305: Dancing In The Fountain: How to Enjoy Living Abroad

Dancing in the Fountain is "a delightfully well-written true-life adventure story," says New York Times bestselling author Chris Brady. "McCann's writing is inviting, immediately charming, and constantly entertaining." The book chronicles McCann's adventures moving from the American Midwest to Seville, Spain. "Living abroad is the best opportunity to reinvent yourself outside of the witness protection program," McCann says. "You get to hit the reset button on your life."

Dancing in the Fountain takes its title from one blazing hot night when the author and her husband found themselves sitting on the edge of a big stone fountain. Dabbling their feet in the cool water, pretty soon they were wading, then dancing in the fountain. It's technically legal to do this on hot nights in Seville, but an old man passing by growled, "Hey you two, is that any way to behave? You wouldn't do that back where you come from." And that's the whole point. Living overseas, you get to try things you'd never do back home.

"Dancing in the Fountain is perhaps the best book about travel that I have ever read," writes Guy Thatcher, author of Journey of Days. "It is full of wry humor and it is laugh-out-loud funny." 

Rita Golden Gelman, author of Tales of a Female Nomad, says, "What fun. . . McCann's wacky sense of humor will have you smiling on every page. Just reading this will give you the confidence of an experienced traveler."

"Creating a new life in an old European city has never been so delightful, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny," says Victoria Twead, author of Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools.

From the Author:

This book includes a reading group guide. "One of the first things I discovered upon moving to Seville was an English-language book club for expats," says McCann. "And it was a lifesaver. Much as I enjoyed immersing myself in a foreign culture, it was exhausting to speak another language so much of the time. And reading Spanish books was glacially slow; with my skimpy vocabulary I had to look up every other word in the dictionary. In my English-language book club, I could talk freely with fellow expats about books, life, and the importance of mentally unpacking your bags when you move to a new place. Best of all, they got my jokes and provided much-needed support and perspective, especially during the early stages of adapting to my new home."

From the Back Cover:

Leaving Ohio for southern Spain, Karen McCann was relieved to learn that moving to Europe doesn't mean you're required to buy a crumbling farmhouse and spend years restoring it with the help of semi-literate but wise and amusing locals. Instead, she created a new life for herself in Seville as a modern, urban expat. This breezy and engaging book describes how she created a life that is authentically her own in a country that isn't.
