    3.5 stars I enjoyed this travel memoir from Australian Jay Martin documenting her three year stay in Poland. Her husband Tom, who was Australian?s diplomat in Warsaw was supremely busy why Martin struggled with her years ?not working?, traveling, learning Polish, and keeping the...

    As a reporter my job is to go, understand people I've met (try at least) and pass it further. Very often I deal with foreigners (therefore I know the feeling when You know that You don't know anything). I couldn't wait to read similar book about my country and, well, myself. I couldn'...

    ?Vodka and Apple Juice: Travels of an Undiplomatic Wife in Poland? by Jay Martin won the 2018 City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Award for Best First Manuscript, deservedly. This engaging memoir recounts three years in the life of a ?trailing spouse? who leaves the corporate C...

    Disclaimer: I messed up when I started this book. I didn't read the description carefully and didn't realize it was a memoir for about half of it (OOPS). That obviously changed my opinion of the book, since a memoir has its own kind of style and storytelling. I found a lot of Marti...

    As a Pole, it's always interesting to read about Poland through the eyes of a Westerner. I greatly enjoyed reading the author's reflections on being a diplomat and the Polish psyche; however, I found the portion of the book dealing with her relationship with her husband to be the weake...

    It happened often lately to have on my reading list memoirs written by wives of diplomats, sharing their impressions, frustrations and challenges of their life abroad. Trying - often unsuccessfully - to cope with the liguistic barriers, the sadness of being taken away from their jobs a...

    *I received a galley from NetGalley in exchange for a review. Jay Martin?s Vodka and Apple Juice is more than just the author?s account as a diplomat?s non working wife in the Australian Embassy in Warsaw, Poland over a period of three years. While she recounts for us what it ...

    A copy of this book was given to me via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Vodka and Apple Juice is the fun, fascinating memoir by Jay Martin, who lived in Poland for three years on a diplomatic posting from her native Australia. Now, I?ve never been particularly interest...

    I enjoyed this book quite a lot! In fact, it was the best travel books I've read in a long time. When I read a travel book, I want something intelligent, interesting, a little adventurous, thoughtful but not too critical or controversial. This book hit the mark. The book gave a real...

    This is a solid 5 star read! Not in the sense of a generational lifetime classic, but certainly in the sense of a very well-written book about a situation most do not experience and how this author gets through it and comes out the other side. As someone who has considered moving to an...

    I really enjoyed this memoir. I have never been to Poland and the author's experiences were really interesting. I also was interested in her transition from having a successful career to being the supportive non-working spouse. Not sure how I would do in that role and her experience wa...

    Despite the dark moments when the marriage is under grave strain, this is a hugely enjoyable memoir of embassy life and an illuminating insight into Polish culture. Recommended for expats, tourists and anyone who enjoys a good chuckle. PS This MS was the first creative non-fictio...

    I enjoyed this book quite a lot! In fact, it was the best travel books I've read in a long time. When I read a travel book, I want something intelligent, interesting, a little adventurous, thoughtful but not too critical or controversial. This book hit the mark. The book gave a real...

    Despite the dark moments when the marriage is under grave strain, this is a hugely enjoyable memoir of embassy life and an illuminating insight into Polish culture. Recommended for expats, tourists and anyone who enjoys a good chuckle. PS This MS was the first creative non-fictio...

    A copy of this book was given to me via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Vodka and Apple Juice is the fun, fascinating memoir by Jay Martin, who lived in Poland for three years on a diplomatic posting from her native Australia. Now, I?ve never been particularly interest...

    I enjoyed this book quite a lot! In fact, it was the best travel books I've read in a long time. When I read a travel book, I want something intelligent, interesting, a little adventurous, thoughtful but not too critical or controversial. This book hit the mark. The book gave a real...

    This is a solid 5 star read! Not in the sense of a generational lifetime classic, but certainly in the sense of a very well-written book about a situation most do not experience and how this author gets through it and comes out the other side. As someone who has considered moving to an...

    As a reporter my job is to go, understand people I've met (try at least) and pass it further. Very often I deal with foreigners (therefore I know the feeling when You know that You don't know anything). I couldn't wait to read similar book about my country and, well, myself. I couldn'...

    Disclaimer: I messed up when I started this book. I didn't read the description carefully and didn't realize it was a memoir for about half of it (OOPS). That obviously changed my opinion of the book, since a memoir has its own kind of style and storytelling. I found a lot of Marti...
