Are you ready to go global? Whether you are firmly planted in your familiar hometown or are already making plans for your exotic wedding in India next December, this book will help you connect with this great and wonderful world that we share with 7 billion+ others in your own way, in your own time, and at your own pace.
Part travel guide and part memoir, this book gets into the inner world and psychology of becoming a traveler and expatriate, providing insights on the ups, downs, obstacles, and epiphanies of life both on and off the road.
