As you know, immediately after eighteen months of writing and editing, my new book, Ten Years a Nomad: A Traveler’s Journey Dwelling, came out final month.
As opposed to my prior books, this is not a “how to guide” but a collection of guidelines, assistance, and stories from the road. It a memoir of my ten years backpacking the globe and the lessons I discovered along the way.
This book gets to the heart of wanderlust and what extended travel about the globe can teach us about life, ourselves, and our spot in the globe. (Or at least tries to.)
It is meant to show men and women that if I, a sheltered nerdy kid from a little town, could muster the courage to do this and survive, you can as well!
Cheryl Strayed known as it inspiring. The Los Angeles Instances mentioned, “This book is not just for travelers it is for any person who has wanted extra and has taken off to obtain it.” Tony Wheeler, the founder of Lonely Planet, loved it. So did Rolf Potts.
And, extra importantly, thousands of readers who preserve sending me messages that they couldn’t place it down and it renewed their wanderlust. (For a writer, that is the ideal point we can hear.)
More than the final month, I’ve accomplished a lot of interviews, videos, podcasts, and guest posts speaking not only about my book but how you can travel extra frequently – and be a much better traveler when you do.
So I wanted to share some of what I’ve been up to so you can understand extra about the book and get some travel guidelines at the very same time:

Right here are hyperlinks to acquire the new book:
Book Your Trip: Logistical Strategies and Tricks
Book Your Flight
Uncover a low cost flight by employing Skyscanner or Momondo. They are my two favored search engines due to the fact they search sites and airlines about the globe so you generally know no stone is left unturned.
Book Your Accommodation
You can book your hostel with Hostelworld as they have the biggest inventory. If you want to remain someplace other than a hostel, use Booking.com as they regularly return the least expensive prices for guesthouses and low cost hotels. I use them all the time.
Do not Overlook Travel Insurance coverage
Travel insurance coverage will defend you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. It is extensive protection in case something goes incorrect. I by no means go on a trip devoid of it as I’ve had to use it lots of occasions in the previous. I’ve been employing Globe Nomads for ten years. My favored businesses that offer you the ideal service and worth are:
- Globe Nomads (for everybody under 70)
