Book Details

TRAVEL IS WONDERFUL but I understand what it’s like when you haven’t done it before. Are you are finding that uncertainty is crushing your dreams? Perhaps you’d love to see the world but just don’t know where to start. Are opportunities slipping away because you don’t have the courage to take them? Maybe you wish that you had more knowledge and experience to start living these dreams.

The problem with experience is that you usually get it immediately after you really need it. If only you could use someone else’s knowledge and experience. Someone who has been there, done that and made some mistakes along the way that you can learn from. Someone who can guide you through each step of your travel, even before you leave home. Well, don’t worry because now you can travel with complete confidence.


My book is a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know when it comes to travel. It’ll take you through the entire process beginning months before your departure, the entire journey and even after you return home. It’s been thoroughly researched but more importantly, written from my own experiences.

I know the apprehension that you’ll experience and challenges you’ll face. I know because I’ve had to face and overcome them myself. So I’ve packed the book with my best travel tips because I know they will be relevant to you and I know that they work. It’s everything you need to travel better, further and for longer.


Why do I need such a book? Won’t my guidebook give me what I need?

No. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m a big advocate of travelling with a guide book of some description. They will give you excellent information on WHERE to go, WHEN to go and WHAT to do but what you need to know is knowledge on HOW to go. Travel Unravelled works together with your guide book to give you everything you need to travel with confidence and enjoyment.

Other books have been written on the art of travel but many of them only offer randomly presented and often incomplete information or advice. My book took me nearly three years to complete. A long time I know, but I wanted to be certain that the content is comprehensive, interesting, presented professionally and easy to understand. The goal that I’ve achieved is to cover every conceivable topic related to travel in clear, easy to understand sections, chapters and subheadings.

Above all, I have ensured that every page will be relevant and important to YOU.


  • A full-colour, 292 page eBook

  • Information on every aspect of your travel

  • Travel inspiration, quotes and links to useful websites

  • An understanding of the problems and doubts you may face

  • Advice for scenarios and situations that you will only experience travelling


Just like life itself, when it comes to travel, knowledge is power. This power will manifest itself in a confidence that when you get on the plane you’ll be ready for any challenge! It’ll be a reassurance to know that you’ve learnt from someone else’s mistakes so you won’t be making them yourself. Instead, you’ll be having a great time and creating unforgettable memories!


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. “

So if you are interested in doing gap year travel, backpacking, student travel, adventure holidays or doing volunteer work abroad my book is for you. Be inspired and gain expert advice on how to bring your travel dreams into an amazing reality.
