About a year ago, I published my first book, 40 Ways to Travel Better. Publishing a book is both exhausting and exhilarating. For the past several months, I’ve been hard at work revising, updating and redesigning. I teamed up with graphic designer, Catherine Reifschneider, and I’m obsessed with her redesign.
Here’s a bit about the book:
I’ve had my share of adventures — lessons, mistakes and all. Like that one time I accidentally dined and dashed in France and realized it awkwardly late — like across the street late. Or the time I told a guy that I was sexually-aroused excited for a weekend in the mountains instead of pumped-up excited. (Hey, foreign language is hard!) Relive the worst night of my life on a train from Paris to Milan. And learn about how I dealt with missing my train across the south of France, which may have included bawling in the corner of the station’s bakery. Other adventures include spending the weekend in a castle in the French countryside. And dancing to Beyoncé at a beachside restaurant in Slovenia.
Included in your copy, you’ll score several handy lists: journal prompts, gotta-have apps, best travel investments and how to fill your solo travel time—without Instagram. Cuddle up with a cozy blanket and a cup of joe as you journey with me and learn how to travel better. Whether you’re backpacking across Europe or taking a cruise in the Caribbean, this book will help walk you through 40 strategies to improve your packing, documenting, photography, long-term travel, saving money, foreign language and mindset.
