True Tales of a Traveller: Alternative Medicine - Book coverTrue Tales of a Traveller is a series of stories consisting of several dozen traveller’s tales covering over three decades. Although presented in a short story format for reading convenience, these stories are not fiction. Apart from some of the characters’ names which have been changed to protect their identities, everything in these stories is true.

The fourth story in the series (this story), Alternative Medicine, is set mostly in Greece and Egypt in 1983. At around 13,000 words, this story is a lengthy short story which may need more than one sitting. Like the other stories in the series, it provides not only an entertaining read, but also information on all the places visited, some relevant only to the era in which the story is set, but most still relevant today. In addition to being a travel story, Alternative Medicine is also a story about career hopes, delusions, expectations, and opportunities.

Author's Note: 

There will be several dozen stories in this series altogether. I'm making the individual stories available on Amazon and elsewhere, while collections will also be available in paperback. Any opinions or feedback much appreciated.
