As you know, following eighteen months of writing and editing, my new book, Ten Years a Nomad: A Traveler’s Journey House, came out final month.
In contrast to my preceding books, this is not a “how to guide” but a collection of ideas, guidance, 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 location in the globe. (Or at least tries to.)
It is meant to show folks that if I, a sheltered nerdy kid from a compact town, could muster the courage to do this and survive, you can as well!
Cheryl Strayed referred to as it inspiring. The Los Angeles Instances stated, “This book is not just for travelers it is for everyone who has wanted much more and has taken off to obtain it.” Tony Wheeler, the founder of Lonely Planet, loved it. So did Rolf Potts.
And, much more importantly, thousands of readers who retain 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 carried out a lot of interviews, videos, podcasts, and guest posts speaking not only about my book but how you can travel much more normally – and be a improved traveler when you do.
So I wanted to share some of what I’ve been up to so you can understand much more about the book and get some travel ideas at the identical time:

Book Your Trip: Logistical Guidelines and Tricks
Book Your Flight
Come across a low-priced flight by making use of Skyscanner or Momondo. They are my two favored search engines due to the fact they search internet sites and airlines about the globe so you usually 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-priced 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 never ever go on a trip without having it as I’ve had to use it quite a few instances in the previous. I’ve been making use of Planet Nomads for ten years.
