Why I wrote the book "The Youthful Art of Midlife Travel"

“As a solo traveller I learned some tips I am going to implement in my future travels. Lots of good
information. I like the overall theme - get out there and experience life, whether it’s a big solo trip or a small jaunt to get you started. Good information for people just starting out as well as for those who have more experience. I like that you make people aware of pitfalls and that issues will come up but if one stays calm and thinks clearly there is always a solution. I feel that is very important for people to understand - something will inevitably happen; it’s how one deals with it that will determine how your attitude towards travel plays out. With the personal experiences adding reality to it is helpful and could give first time travellers a sense of comfort. Love the idea behind it and that you want to encourage people to just get out there and live!” - Jackie T

"Chris gives it to you straight, cold, hard truth about the challenges inherent in global travel. Very helpful to me, as I'm planning a trip around the world. And since he's already travelled around the globe, I know his words come from direct experience, which is exceptionally helpful. I liked the safety, social, items to pack and all other recommendations. I like that he recommends alternatives and explains them in detail so you can be aware of your own best choices. A very detailed and informative guide and resource to complete a global travel excursion.” - Jennifer Z
