Kristin  Haug, Verena  Töpper - Lunch on the Mekong


The joy of walking barefoot every day

Paradise, I'm on my way: every year, more than a hundred thousand Germans fulfil their dream of living abroad. People like the diving instructor Carina, for example, who has moved to the remote Cook Islands in the South Pacific, and now feels more liberated than ever before; or the helicopter pilot Ingo, who flies over the Grand Canyon four times a day. No wonder that Verena Töpper and Kristin Haug's emigrants' column is one of the most popular on, each piece attracting more than half a million readers.

Lunch on the Mekong gathers their most popular columns alongside unpublished portraits, reveals what happened to the emigrants and the obstacles they had to overcome, and includes practical tips, fascinating interviews with experts, and an entertaining quiz to find out whether you, too, are ready for a fresh start abroad. Your adventure awaits!
