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

Book Your Trip: Logistical Recommendations and Tricks
Book Your Flight
Uncover a affordable flight by utilizing Skyscanner or Momondo. They are my two favourite search engines simply because they search internet 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 affordable hotels. I use them all the time.
Do not Neglect Travel Insurance coverage
Travel insurance coverage will shield 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 occasions in the previous. I’ve been utilizing Planet Nomads for ten years. My favourite firms that give the finest service and worth are:
- Planet Nomads (for every person under 70)
- Insure My Trip (for these more than 70)
