With many gorgeous photographs and actionable travel advice, A Year Off captures all the beauty and magic of the wanderlust spirit, guiding readers on how to take the same leap and showing them just how doable a journey this type of round-the-world travel is.
From the Publisher
This is possible.
That’s what Alexandra and David Brown told themselves when they quit their jobs before embarking on an around-the-world journey. But this isn’t only a book about one couple’s amazing year off. It’s an inspiration and a guide for turning your own dreams into reality.
From the Introduction
Our hope is to impart some of the wisdom we gained through our collective experiences to help you define what you want; better manage the pre-, during-, and postplanning process; and engage deeply with the cultures and places you visit.
In short, we wrote the book we wish we had read before we left, and we hope it helps you start your journey, even if it is just a daydream for now.
