"Have you ever dreamed of quitting the rat race and taking a year off—and then swiftly jolted back to reality? If so, A Year Off will give you the inspiration and the courage to make it happen in real life."The Independent

Wait for me... Who knew these three words said to a near stranger would start an international travel adventure?
A Year Off is one part travel guide, one part travel essays and photos, and one part memoir documenting the story of Alexandra and David Brown, a couple who decided to take a year off from their jobs and 'regular lives' to travel the world together after only knowing each other for a few months. 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. Each chapter provides perspectives from both authors and tackles a different part of the journey, including:

  • A look into David and Alexandra's story as they traveled the world together and got to know one another.
  • Colorful essays about adventure travel and all the life-changing moments that come along with it.
  • A practical travel guide providing tips on how to leave your job, budget, pack, plan your route, pace yourself, adjust to culture shock, and re-enter.
Turn your travel daydreams into reality with the help of the inspiring journey towards fulfillment, adventure, and learning to be present in the moment.
  • This inspirational book is a great gift for all the dreamers, would-be adventurers, and endearingly practical professionals looking to scratch the travel itch and take a risk on what may be the best time of their lives.

I was disappointed that this book didn't have the kind of detailed travel advice that I expected it to have .
