Ten Years a Nomad: A Traveler’s Journey Home
The book is a memoir of my ten years traveling and backpacking the world and the lessons I learned from that. It follows the arc of a trip around the globe: getting the bug, the planning, setting off, the highs, the lows, the friendships made, the relationships forged (and lost), the emotions you feel when it's all over.
Unlike my previous books, this is not a “how to guide” but a collection of insights, advice, and stories from the road, conveying the experience of what it's like to quit your job, follow the road not taken, and travel the world trying to discover who you are and what the world has to offer. In short, it is my opus on travel meant, to inspire you to pursue your own dreams.
I've written a few destination guidebooks that will help you travel cheaper, better, and smarter. Unlike other guidebooks, these are specifically written for budget travelers! They contain detailed tips, advice, and insider information so you can get off the beaten path, away from the crowds, and save money when you travel! Straight to the point, no fluff!
Remember Your Travels
This new travel-themed journal features guided prompts to help you remember everything you experience on the road, as well as quotes to keep you inspired along the way. It also includes pre- and post-trip sections, so you can set your intentions before you actually record your experiences, and then reflect on everything. I designed the journal to be as straightforward and streamlined as possible so that you can remember all those incredible moments you experience on the road.
