Gordon Burridge left Scotland in 1957 to work as an Agricultural Supervisor in the small African country of Nyasaland. He was followed eight months later by his young fiancée, Marian, who left a Scottish winter for an unusual wedding and the adventures of Marian and Gordon in Africa, happy and otherwise, were well documented in regular letters to family in Scotland.
Reading them fifty years later, they realised they had a wonderful story to tell and ‘African Honeymoon’ was born.
They now look forward to a second book, about adjusting to Canadian winters after leaving the heat of Africa. Tentatively titled “Out of the Frying Pan into the Freezer” it is due to be published late 2012.
