We wrote a book! It's out now, and we're so excited. 

We wrote Travel Anywhere (And Avoid Being a Tourist) to inspire your next (and next and next and next) journey — no matter what kind of travel experience you are looking for.

Along with compelling anecdotes, suggestions, and images, you’ll find a clever approach to being a better traveler and global citizen – everything from how to go off-grid and where to go for a once-in-a-lifetime meal, to cool ways to give back and learn more about other cultures. Whether you’re getting on a plane or sitting on the couch, this book will help you navigate the full trip journey, celebrating travel inspiration, experiences, and the lingering memories of it all.
