How we travel has changed; why we travel has not. Travel is curiosity, openness, and connection. In this thought-provoking guide, wanderers, dreamers and nomads are challenged to enhance their understanding of the world by exploring it on their own terms. With practical advice on getting off the tourist trail, connecting with locals, and understanding a place by asking the right questions, readers are given the tools to overcome barriers and restrictions and bring the world together.
Nathan invites us to rediscover the world on our own terms. He is redefining the travel guide genre by not looking at where to travel, but how to travel. Ultimately, Nathan has written the book he wished was written when he first set out on a solo journey as a 17 year old.
If you’re considering backpacking, long term travel, annual leave or travelling for work Nathan shows how to make the most of every place we visit. Learn how to move beyond your comfort zone, overcome language barriers, connect with locals and understand the real story of the places you visit.

“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.”
