The Globetrotter Diaries: Tales, Tips, and Tactics for Traveling the 7 Continents
Author, Michael Clinton, has traveled to 120 countries, and has plenty of stories he's shared with his friends about each of them. In his book, The Globetrotter Diaries: Tales, Tips, and Tactics for Traveling the Seven Continents, he now shares some of these stories along with helpful advice he's learned on his travels.
This is Michael's sixth book, in which he presents a hybrid travel guide and memoir filled with poetic stories of adventure and exploration with a mix of strategies, tips and insights on how to get the most out of your journey. Among the stories he shares is the experience of being stranded in Europe, and a trip to Lithuania to get in touch with his ancestral roots. He also reveals his tour of Oslo’s Vigelandsparken park, and reasons why we should visit emerging nations such as Cambodia to support their efforts to grow.
One of the great things about The Globetrotter Diaries is how Michael not only shares his adventure, we also learn why travel makes such a difference. “Travel can open you up in ways that you never thought possible.” Clinton says of the powerful appeal of travel, “It allows you to explore the core of your inner soul, to challenge your own beliefs, relationships, and spirituality. My life has been a collection of memories and photographs of the many nuances that experiencing even one country can bring. I have never stopped chasing a boyhood dream to explore the world we live in. We are all responsible for fulfilling our own dreams, mine being to see as much of the world as possible, to learn what I might about myself and about people in general. My travels have taught me to understand our differences, yet celebrate our similarities. Whatever your dreams, find the globetrotter in you and go in search of them – you might be surprised at the satisfaction that it will bring to you.”
Along with his helpful advice, Michael add expert itineraries for different cities, and A to Z advice on matters even seasoned travelers may forget or not be aware of such as how to handle flight delays and avoid airport problems. He also covers the importance of ensuring your security and safely navigating your way through a foreign land, and what to do if you leave something on a plane.
