Travel For As Long As You Wish: The Blueprint For Budget Travel, Backpacking And Escaping The Rat Race by Mark James Murphy is an ideal companion for the conscious traveler planning their next adventure. Readers get a blend of tips for travel, career advice to earn a living on the road, and reflections on sights and experiences sure to awaken the soul. Murphy speaks from personal experience. He has traveled extensively throughout the world solo and left his job in the UK in 2017 to teach English in Vietnam for five years. Murphy recognizes the changing landscape of travel as humans desire to connect, have deeper self-awareness, and are motivated to learn from different cultures, people, and places. His book contains up-to-date advice on how to determine your destination, save money on bookings, and choose what to pack and why. He devotes a whole chapter to making money on the road from drop shipping and writing blogs to seasonal work in amazing locations.
Want to know what countries offer Digital Nomad Visas? No problem. Travel For As Long As You Wish by Mark James Murphy has links to useful sites and apps are included to simplify the planning process. A bonus is ‘destinations with a difference’ for 2023. Places like Iran, the Middle East, Sichuan Province in China, Uruguay, Dominica, and Albania are often less popular, yet offer magical experiences and are ideal for the budget conscious. If these locales make you nervous, be sure to stay safe by reading the chapter about con artists to avoid. If you are ready to expose yourself to unknown cultures to reach your fullest potential, pick up a copy of Travel For As Long As You Wish. The ‘after-effects’ says Murphy will lead you to be more resilient and develop an incredible eye for detail, plus you may just find yourself to be a better person. Great information; I enjoyed reading this book and I loved the personal stories!
