Welcome to the home of Colin Guest, A.K.A Tigerman. I chose this name as like tigers I love to roam far and wide.
This site is dedicated to my writing exploits, which I started many years ago while working in Brunei. Since retiring I have been able to devote far more time writing. It is my hope that readers get pleasure from reading the variety of books I have written. Comments on this site and contents would be appreciated.
If you want to know how to get out of a boring 9-5 job, buy my memoir, “Follow in the Tigerman’s Footsteps.”
It covers a wide range of experiences. Some crazy and adventurous, with a few life-threatening ones, all mixed with a blend of humour. These I encountered during nineteen years of working as an expat in fifteen countries spread through the Middle, Far East, and North Africa. Instead of putting up with a boring 9-5 job, you could enjoy a working life most only dream about.
Below is an excerpt from Chapter 6
Lucky Escape in Qatar
I soon realised I had a choice, either I would swim back to shore or drown. After deciding I didn’t want to die, I gave it my best shot to get back to the beach. Only after making a supreme effort, did I manage to swim back to shore. On trembling legs, I staggered up to our tent and collapsed on my towel. As I lay in shock, I thought how lucky I had been not to have drowned.
