Love is alluring, seductive, and elusive. Love yearns, hurts, and heals. We fall into love unprepared, and we discover new dimensions, new flavors of love everyday. JJ fell in love with conventional expectations but discovered a gut-wrenching push-pull in his heart that he never imagined. Bungee Love is a tale about his discoveries, his broken marriage, and his search for reconciliation. He left America to start a new life in Asia and was surprised and astounded by what he learned from new cultures and people as he traveled. He discovered amazing new places with rich Asian histories and religions. He found adventures, traditions, and ancient temples in Cambodia, Th ailand, Viet Nam, and Indonesia, but he was not prepared for the steamy, lurid side of Asia. Bangkok and Pattaya revealed more than sex for sale on a gawdy, blatant scale; they provided glimpses of the hidden lives, motives, and dreams of the girls drawn into the bargirl life. He developed insights into himself and his life as he began to understand the lives of the women he met, but JJ was no more ready for the sexy bargirls who pulled him into Hell than the goodness that rescued him.Koh Chang is the biggest island in a chain of islands off the southeast tip of Thailand that runs down to Cambodia I liked ...
