Getting to know other parts of the world is one of the most direct (and fun!) ways to advance what my work is all about: “becoming better people.”
Vacation travel is one way to do this, but extended time away — whether exploring different cultures or doing a deep dive into a single one — connects you more profoundly with people and places.
While taking extended time abroad can feel daunting, Let’s Leave the Country! is a step-by-step guide to planning a life-changing adventure for you and your family.
“A wonderfully insightful guide, designed to help readers take their own leaps into life-changing travel adventures.”
—Tracey Carisch, author, Excess Baggage: One Family’s Around-the-World Search for Balance
