Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Subtitled A Passport to Adventure, Discovery, and Growth, this little pocket book is full of traveling insights--from the philosophical to the practical, the poetic to the possible. An experienced traveler who has journeyed to 52 countries on six continents, author Steve Zikman is also the coauthor of the forthcoming books Chicken Soup for the Traveler's Soul and Chicken Soup for the Outdoor Soul.

"Beyond its refreshing and revitalizing qualities, travel has the unmatched capacity to be a wellspring of self-discovery and personal growth, a path to ourselves," Zikman writes in the introduction. In more than 100 short inspirational essays with titles as varied as "We Trust Our Intuition," "In the Heartland of Our Confidence," "Romance," "Travel Is Ageless," and "Conversation," his thought-provoking ideas and useful observations are applicable whether you're planning a weekend outing, family vacation, or solo business trip. Related quotes from fellow travelers such as Mother Teresa, Anaïs Nin, John Steinbeck, and Ralph Waldo Emerson add interest to every page. --Kathryn True

I have traveled many places around the world and read many books on travel, but this book is truly different. Instead of simply delving into the practical side of travel, this book explores the more "soulful" world. The interjection of quotes from famous people adds to the more pure understanding of the "power of travel." I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something different. It's a quick and interesting read. The author has an honest understanding of the world of travel. Five stars all the way!
