Lauren Juliff and How Not To Travel The World – Nov Book Reads

Walking through the local library I came across this book titled How not to travel the world -adventures of a disaster prone backpacker. I was intrigued, began flicking through it definitely caught my eye. 

How not to travel the world is Lauren’s story of how she left home to travel the world with little life experience and also someone who has anxiety.

I found this book fantastic very high up of must reads in my opinion. It’s entertaining both highs and lows, inspiring for people who would like to travel the world and/ or suffer anxiety (including myself).

April Reads- The Travel Hacking Pocket Guide 

The Travel Hacking Pocket Guide By James Zeller 

Interest in saving money on or for your travels? 

Perhaps you have a “home life” where you can’t really spare as much $$… If your looking for a few cheats and wanting to earn some frequent flyer point / hotel bonuses then I recommend this book. I recommend it enough that I will probably read it again to catch up on a few details.  

This book talks a lot about using points depending on your location it will vary to what’s available such as frequent flyers, flybuys, points earned at grocery stores and also covers a few different booking website tips and options.

March Read- Level Up Your Life The Book 

Level Up Your Life The Book
So I figure this is a good time in my blog to talk about this fantastic book . I havnt read any other self help book quite as fitting to my personality as this one . 
Written by Steve Kamb founder of nerd and also a fellow nerd. 

Everyone has stuff they want to accomplish get fitter, reach a career goal , travel here or there but it’s a lot  easier for everyone to say rather then actually DOING it . 

This book helped me get motivated in some aspects that I needed to work on. I’m fine when it comes to travelling but it’s so easy be at home and get used to staying in our routines work, watching tv, gaming etc  and not trying a lot of things we want to instead we all say “wish I could do that”. 

Steve’s story is similar a nerd who loved to game and watch tv wishing he could live like Indiana jones and go on adventures . Well he did it! He has now written a book about how to stop you from saying I wish and collecting underpants and to get out there! 

This has to be 1 out of the top 2 books I have ever read. It’s a must check out
