The Winding Road to Portugal: 20 Men From 11 Countries Share Their Stories

The Winding Road to Portugal: 20 Men From 11 Countries Share Their Stories

Author(s): Louise Ross

Location(s): Portugal

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Travelogue

Era(s): Contemporary

How do men navigate life at a time fraught with great uncertainty and rapid change, working and moving country to country, on their own or with a family? Is their path easy, because they’re men, fortuned with greater liberties than women? Or do they encounter a different set of challenges, faced with the complexities of what it means to be a man today? Twenty men from 11 countries, business creatives-cum-entrepreneurial self-starters, some of whom pulled themselves up by the bootstraps, succeeding by their own efforts, share the truth of making different, oftentimes difficult decisions and life choices, eschewing the prescriptive straight and narrow path for the winding road en route to Portugal.
