Travel Your Way: Rediscover the World on Your Own Terms

“A serious-minded and thoughtful engagement with some of the joys and contradictions that travel brings to light, illustrated by rich vignettes from the author’s own adventures on the road. An engaging, articulate and enjoyable guide.”
Nick Hunt, author of ‘Walking the Woods and the Water’, ‘Where the Wild Winds Are’ and ‘Outlandish.’

“Travel Your Way has something for everyone: great first-person stories, thoughtful reflections on the meaning and impact of travel, and practical advice on how to get the most out of your journey. It doesn’t preach—hence the title—but life lessons abound in these pages nonetheless.”
Craig Storti, author of ‘Why Travel Matters’ and ‘The Hunt for Mount Everest’

When Intrepid Times editor Nathan James Thomas was asked to write a book about getting more from your travel experiences, he didn’t count on a pandemic shutting down travel across the globe. But in light of our changed world, eking the most benefit from your travel experiences – past, present and future – matters more than ever.

Travel Your Way is your guide to getting more from whatever travel experiences you are able to find. Whether it’s seeing your own home town in a different light, or backpacking across Europe or Asia, inside you’ll find entertaining stories mixed with practical advice to help you learn, experience and connect more with the places you go and the people you meet along the way.

Fearless Footsteps: True Stories That Capture the Spirit of Adventure

In 2019, Intrepid Times held an international writing competition on the theme of overcoming fear. The winning stories were selected for the book Fearless Footsteps, published globally by Exisle Publishing in November 2020. This inspirational collection of true travel stories proves that the best journeys are to be had when you feel the fear but go anyway. From a nervous flier anxiously taking to the skies for the first time to a female traveller braving the Middle East, from a death-defying hike on an Indonesian volcano to the anxious freedom of finding yourself alone on the other side of the world, these stories are certain to send you looking for your passport.

We believe passionately that real travel writing with heart is here to stay, so we could not be more excited about this opportunity to reach travelers and readers around the world.
