Editing and Proofreading by Scribendi

Ken traveled after graduating from school and continues to do so. The first 12 years were spent in Germany and Cyprus. Then on to Libya before returning to the United Kingdom at an R&D facility. He spent the subsequent five years in Iran and Iraq with itchy feet before returning to the UK to complete his college education.

He joined a technology company to temporarily settle in with a little more education. However, the business persuaded him to manage Europe’s distributor operations. The business grew after a few successful years, and they asked him to manage their operations for a long time in Africa, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent.

Ken eventually settled down on a tropical island for six years in search of something new before his itchy feet once more forced him to leave. He now relates those experiences to his out-of-this-world expression after spending an interminable amount of time traveling, meeting new people, observing, and taking notes.
