What readers are saying

“Inspirational, comprehensive, open-minded, super informative and even funny! I really enjoyed reading this book and found it very inspiring.”


“One of the best pre trip purchases I made. The writing style makes it feel like you are chatting to a friend giving you some words of wisdom.”

Thomas E., Amazon UK

“I haven’t read a lot of guide books in my life, but this… answers a lot of question that I didn’t even know I had to ask.”


“Put simply, this book is the reason why I left for a 2-month trip with a 10kg backpack. Thanks for the great advice, Marek!”

Massimiliano on GoodReads

“Earlier this week I had a vague notion that maybe going to SE Asia some day could be fun, in a hypothetical sense. My sister lent me the book, I read it in one day, and booked my flight to Bangkok the next morning.”

Other travel books can speak in generals but this one has taught me so much that I truly feel prepared for a long international trip. Would recommend to any prospective world traveler”

What will I learn from this book?

The goal is to arm you with all the knowledge and resources you need to hit the ground running, and to leave you with a feeling of “hell yeah, let’s do this!”.

You’ll learn how to create a realistic travel plan, save money for your trip, never spend more than you need to, pack lighter and smarter, stay safe, healthy, and happy, meet people if you’re traveling solo, improvise when needed, keep your spirits up when things go wrong (and know how to solve common problems), and — above all — leave no opportunities for adventure wasted on your next trip.

What sort of travel does this cover?

The book is for anyone wanting to jump into the deep end of travel. That could mean going on a backpacking or round-the-world trip, or travelling the world as a digital nomad. Or maybe it just means going to a continent you've never been before.

You'll probably benefit most if your trip is at least a few weeks long and if you're adventure-seeking. That said, most of the tips and insights are useful for any kind of trip. One of the book's lessons is that with the right attitude you can always find adventure, regardless of how much time you have to travel.

Will the ebook work on my device?

Yes, don't worry about this! The ebook will work on any tablet, phone, ebook reader, or computer. All you have to do is just open the file and start reading. If there are somehow any issues reading the ebook, you can request my support or get a refund.

You’ll get a Mobi (Kindle) version, ePub version, and a PDF version (which looks exactly like the printed book).

Is this book different from your blog?

Yes, the book is totally different from anything on my blog! It also goes beyond the usual travel tips you'll find on the internet.

Of course, some travel advice is common sense, while other things you might not have thought of. This book puts it all together in a structured way, so that you will feel fully inspired, prepared, and free of worries before you go off travelling. Besides the practical aspects of travel, I also go into the deeply personal elements, based on my many years of travelling around the world. From my personal anecdotes throughout, you'll get a true feel for what it's actually like.
