Let’s Write a Travel Book!

Let’s Write a Travel Book!

A surprisingly common question we get asked on this trip is: are you going to write a book?  We chuckle, shrug and say, “maybe…” After selling all our possessions, quitting our jobs and buying one-way tickets to Vietnam, anything is possible.

That being said, when people keep asking the question you can’t help but think: if we wrote a book, what would be the focus?  How could we share our experiences and encourage others to see the world?

As people began emailing us travel questions we realized how many people want to visit the places we have, but time and money is seen as a limiter.  Immediately we knew what our book should be about: how to visit the world’s best destinations on limited vacation time. Written from our extensive world travels to 40+ countries and counting, we have seen many of the world’s best places for culture, cuisine and relaxation.  Most of these places are accessible on your next week off.

OK, so why are writing about writing a book instead of just doing it?  Because we decided to “crowd-source” it.  We want you to help us create this book so that it includes the places and information you need most.  To do this we set up a project on Kickstarter.com to help fund and create it.  Your support will allow you to shape what’s in the book and gets you something magical.  Check out the “Rewards” on the right side of the project’s page to see what else you will get, including postcards, printed photos, and copies of the book itself.

Let’s face it; few people are going to dedicate the time and money we have to travel.  The thing is, you don’t have to.  You can see the world’s best sights on a week or two of vacation, without rushing.  Contrary to popular belief you can easily visit these places on almost any budget.  Our book will provide tips and tricks to help you keep within your budget and get the comforts you desire.  We won’t duplicate the travel guides, rather we’ll provide a book that answers the question: where should we go next?  Global in nature, it will provide detailed itineraries to maximize your time, but enjoy every minute.  Along with that, we’ll reveal the splendor of these places through our own full color photos.  It will help you see the world’s wonders that interest you most.

Check out our project and please pass it on to anyone that you think would be interested.

PS: You may be wondering how postcards or photos from us are magical.  Trust me, they are, but if I told you the magic wouldn’t work…
