Destination Earth – A New Philosophy of Travel by a World-Traveler is the result of this life-transforming journey. While many travelers today concern themselves with destinations solely for amusement, relaxation, and entertainment, the author proposes a more meaningful, rewarding, and fulfilling way of viewing Travel and its relation to Life. Enriched with travel incidents and some of the author’s best travel photos, Destination Earth sheds light on both Travel and Life. Ideas and experiences are interwoven into a newly created Philosophy of Travel that is practical and easy to read.
