Book Description

An unexpected relationship turns into an unconventional adventure, as full-time traveler Colin Wright falls for an Icelandic girl who tests his ideas about relationships and becomes a partner-in-crime across three continents.

From Reykjavik to Kolkata to the vast highway system of the United States, the duo find themselves on Bollywood sets, working communal farmsteads, and out on the town with pickup artists, all the while trying to figure out what an ideal relationship might look like, and if such a thing is even possible; especially in one with a deadline.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Colin Wright is the author, entrepreneur, and full-time traveler behind the blog ExileLifestyle.com, where he writes for an audience of nearly 2 million readers, on topics ranging from philosophy to publishing, long-term travel to all-in entrepreneurship. He also speaks and teaches workshops internationally, generally on work/lifestyle-balance, the business of being a creative person, branding, modern publishing, and how to do what you love for for a living.

At 24, Colin was running a successful branding studio in Los Angeles and living the 'American Dream,' when he decided that dream wasn't all it was cracked up to be. After scaling down his business and getting rid of everything he owned that wouldn't fit into a carry-on bag, he hit the road and began a lifestyle focused on new experiences and novel perspectives. For over four years, he's moved to a new country every four months based on the votes of his readers.

Colin has been featured in an interviewed by hundreds of TV shows, magazines, newspapers, podcasts, blogs, and other media around the world. He's written both fiction and nonfiction bestsellers, and is probably one of the biggest book geeks you'll ever meet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly entertaining, insightful, and quick read June 4, 2012
By Brian
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up an early copy of this ebook and devoured it in less than a day. It's longer than other ebooks I've read by bloggers (read: actually book-length), but I still couldn't put it down. Colin has a writing style that makes you envy his lifestyle, enjoy his anecdotes, and question some of your own life choices. He's quickly become one of my favorite travel/philosophy writers along with Bill Bryson, Tim Ferriss, etc. I'm not saying that reading this book has made me want to leave everything behind and set off on an international vagabond lifestyle of indeterminate duration, but some of his philosophies are insightful nonetheless. Long story short, it's a really fun book that will get you thinking about mobile lifestyles, relationships, and careers. Definitely recommended for anyone infected by the travel bug who has a few hours to spare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Iceland India Interesting July 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's easy to be jealous of Colin Wright. One might even be tempted to utter a *pshaw* or two while reading his latest travelogue, Iceland India Interstate. It would be the easiest thing in the world to imagine a writer, sitting behind his computer screen having never set foot outside his own comfort zone, creating the character of Colin Wright so that all of us could bask in the glory of the tales that this world-trotting swashbuckler brings back to share. Its part fantasy, part travel blog, part soft-core porn, part "love story", and all the way fun. Colin is good-looking, good with the ladies, economically independant, a networking beast, friend to the rich and famous, downtrodden and sodden, and genuine in a way that is hard to accept in a man so willing to venture outside his comfort zone and to get his hands dirty. Would you spend two months sleeping next to caterwauling babies and crusty old crack heads on a bus, or let complete strangers decide what city on earth you would be spending the next four months of your life in, or risk heart-break and tragic loss just to spend one more day with that special someone, when you could clearly afford first class? Colin does all that and more, just to make his life more interesting. I wouldn't go that far, nor would the vast majority of us, which is what makes this book such a treasure...Colin ventures where we dare not and is not afraid to share (or brag, LOL). Thanks Colin!

5.0 out of 5 stars A reference guide for our generation June 15, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When the opening gambit of a book tells of the authors casual involvement in a threesome the night before trotting off to spend four months in Iceland, a destination chosen entirely by his blog readers, I know I'm in for a pretty good read.

To be cliche about it, I couldn't put the reading device down. Colin brings together an unusual mix of genuinely insightful information about the countries he visits, inserts hilarious, personal anecdotes at precisely the right times and then ties it all together with a unique spin on the classic boy meets girl story.

This book serves as a kind of reference guide for our generation. A generation confused by the system, disengaged with outdated politics and looking for a fresh perspective and a new way to live.

Colin is truly redefining what it means to be a "citizen of earth".

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which I read during my own first-time solo travel journey in Brazil. Many of the aspects of travel that Colin covers, I could relate to on the road. I particularly liked the first two parts of the book in terms of travels and philosophical anecdotes, whereas the last part I enjoyed primarily for the thoughtful views on relationships that Colin has developed and lives by.

If you are even the slightest into concepts such as minimalism, human interactions, and love and loss, or if you have some sort of inherent wanderlust within you, this is well worth its price. Oh, and did I mention he is a great and witty writer?

Be warned though, this probably won't be the last thing you read on Colin's stuff - thy will be hooked!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good follow-up to My Exile Lifestyle September 5, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after reading My Exile Lifestyle, mostly to find out what happened to this young traveler. I have met a few Colin Wright-types during my own travels, and I like the way they think and act. They have this great, romantic, idealistic view of life that I think is important to maintain as one grows older. In Colin's case, he had an idea of limiting his relationships to maximum four months. After meeting a blue-haired Icelandic girl, however, that changed and she is a big part of this newest book. That being said, I thought his experiences were slightly more interesting, when he was a single guy hanging out in exotic places and meeting exotic people. My Exile Lifestyle also had more useful advice for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Fresh Perspective July 24, 2012
By Nick
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Insightful and extremely well written. This newest title from Colin offers a candid view into both the mindset and everyday happenings of a 20-something living his personal dream of full-time travel.

This book will no doubt be an instant hit with the travel-focused and entrepreneurial minded post-grads looking to hit the ground following their own personal passions.

A thoroughly entertaining read, filled with realities of living a dream and poignant critiques and musings challenging the typical outlook of North American 9-5 society. Though provoking and inspiring, I would recommend this book to anyone in search of a fresh perspective.
