Whether you’re stuck at home, dashing off on a business trip, or slinging your backpack over your shoulders for a year of intrepid wandering, Travel Your Way will help you rediscover the world on your own terms.

Audiobook narrated by Nathan James Thomas.

“This pandemic-proof edition of Travel Your Way is one for our tricky times, “with barriers and restrictions coming and going at a dizzying rate”. Thomas outlines steps you can take to enhance your travels and get more out of those trips you are able to make. We need to take travel seriously again. In this age of inequality and divide, look on it as a calling and a mission, which could help heal and connect. “True travel requires us to be humble. You cannot travel without first making yourself vulnerable.”

“It looks like we had to experience the loss of travel to understand how much we really need it!”


Craig Storti, author of  Why Travel Matters and The Hunt for Mount Everest
“Travel Your Way has something for everyone: great first-person stories, thoughtful reflections on the meaning and impact of travel, and practical advice on how to get the most out of your journey. It doesn’t preach—hence the title—but life lessons abound in these pages nonetheless.”


The Senior Newspaper

Carmel McMurdo Audsley, Good Reads
“Reading this book makes you want to cherish the wonderful experience that travel is, and plan to get the most out of every destination. If you want to be a true traveler rather than just a tourist, you will find some great advice in this book. The influence of social media means that so many people travel to be seen, rather than to connect. If you are focused on yourself, you can miss the whole experience. Perhaps it will not be the selfies you took, but the people you met and experiences you had, that you will always remember. A book written from experience, with practical tips for your next adventure.”

Travel is the opposite of prejudice; it is curiosity, openness, and connection. Now, when our world is in flux, travel matters more than ever. How we travel has changed, but why we travel has not. With barriers and restrictions coming and going at a dizzying rate, now is the time to learn how to make the most out of whatever travel opportunities we are able to seize.

With the right techniques and attitude, travel can open our eyes to new cultures and dispel stereotypes. It can force us out of our comfort zone. However, the benefits travel can unlock – increased understanding of the world, greater courage, better connection between cultures – don’t come automatically. Truly experiencing foreign cultures is something we need to work at.

From advice on how to accurately understand new places to practical tips on meeting with locals, overcoming the language barrier, and asking the right questions, Travel Your Way shows you how to discover the world on your own terms. The result is a more rewarding journey and a greater sense of connection to everywhere you go, whether you’re on a business trip, or backpacking across the globe.

Learn how to make the most of every place you go by seeing the world with open, curious eyes, plan with excitement for future journeys, and reflect with greater appreciation on the travels you have experienced so far.

This inspirational collection of true travel stories proves that the best journeys are to be had when you feel the fear but go anyway. From a nervous flier anxiously taking to the skies for the first time to a female traveller braving the Middle East, from a death-defying hike on an Indonesian volcano to the anxious freedom of finding yourself alone on the other side of the world, these stories are certain to send you looking for your passport.

Created by the popular travel writing website, Intrepid Times, as part of an international writing competition that saw entries pouring in from across the globe, Fearless Footsteps is travel writing at both its most exhilarating and its most introspective.
