The Berenson Schemes One – Jack the Castaway
In their latest get-rich-quick scheme, the Berensons move to the Caribbean and invent a new sport. While Jack learns to drive the boat, his parents attempt to ‘drift-snorkel’ in a strong current. Sadly, Jack is set adrift in the Caribbean Sea.
The Berenson Schemes Two – Jack and the Wild Life
September 1st, 2014
The Berensons arrive in Kenya for their latest get-rich-quick scheme, building a Maasai warrior camp for tourists. Sadly, Jack stranded in the Masai Mara.
The Berenson Schemes Three – Jack at the Helm
Jack at the Helm is set in Nepal - a magical country I have spent extensive time in. There are a lot of ways to help Nepal recover, here's one: Help Nepal
. Here's another thing you can do - don't write off Nepal as a tourist destination! Of course, right this minute would not be a great time for tourism, but soon enough it will be. Places like Nepal depend heavily on tourism - it puts food on the table for many families. I know that when I experienced Hurricane Mitch (a cat 5) on Roatan, the devastation came in two parts - the hurricane itself, and then how long it took for tourists to come back. Not sure if Nepal is ready for you yet? Check the Lonely Planet forums. Intrepid backpackers will be the first to return and you can get accurate information from people on the ground.
The Berensons travel to a remote region of Nepal to launch their latest get-rich-quick scheme – gathering disciples for a religion they invented. (They expect it will take the world by storm.) Sadly, on an overnight trip to their new international headquarters in the town of Shangrilala, Jack is lost. Again.
