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. However, the benefits we associate with travel – 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.

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. Learn how to make the most of every place you go by seeing the world with open, curious eyes. Even if you’re stuck at home, you can plan to get more out of your future travel.

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.
