Taking Off

by Ty F. Clemens

A few years after graduating college, Ty was fed up with "working" and "acting responsibly like every other adult is expected to," and chose instead to quit his job and backpack across Europe and Asia. Taking Off is the mostly true memoir of his trip.Yes, this may come as a shock, but a twenty-something wrote about his experiences travelling. Kind of like when Ashley from HR sent you the link to her vacation blog. The differences being that this book is longer, has less pictures of Ashley in a bikini, and gives you no real obligation to read it since you'll never bump into Ty in the break room where he'll ask you how you liked it. But regardless of obligation, you can still appreciate this book, as it consists of several humorous, interesting, and worthwhile anecdotes that are way more int...

Notes on a Costa Rican Sabbatical

by Julia Parker

Thrown into the unrelenting challenges of life in Central America with my professor husband and three young daughters, this is the story of the beauty, comedy and tragedy of a year-long journey in Costa Rica.My mother always rolled her eyes and said “never a dull moment” when times were tough. I guess I was supposed to get the message that dull was good, and adventure was bad. But, I didn’t. In September 2007, my family set off for a year in Costa Rica. After my over-worked husband achieved tenure, he was able to finagle a year-long sabbatical adventure for all of us. Equipped with very little Spanish, a curious seven-year old daughter and two toddlers, we explored the cultural conundrums, confounding beauty, creepy wildlife and staggering inequities of Costa Rica and Central Am...

Common Grounds: Contemplations, Confessions, and (Unexpected) Connections from the Coffee Shop

by Lee Warren

“Am I the only one?”

That question sent Lee Warren on a pilgrimage in which he visited 30 coffee shops in Omaha, Nebraska. This collection of thirty heartfelt essays is the result.

He ended up spending $136.42 on coffee and a few donuts, but it was a small price to pay for the commonality he felt between the patrons, baristas, and himself. And standing on common ground gave him strength in the most unexpected of ways.

Maybe it will do the same for you....

To Travel Hopelessly: Five Years of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (The Burnout Trilogy Book 1)

by English Teacher X

In 1995, after a year of aimless wandering, a broke, parasite-infested backpacker answered an ad in a newspaper in Bangkok and inadvertently became English Teacher X, working, in the next five years, in seven different cities in five different countries.

From the neon-and-vomit-laden streets of Seoul to historic beer-soaked Prague, from a tropical island paradise in Thailand to an industrial hellhole of Post-Soviet Russia, English Teacher X describes, in raw and violent imagery, the life of an English teacher overseas, encountering dishonest and exploitative employers, degenerate colleagues, corrupt police, gold-hearted prostitutes and cold-hearted "English groupies", with drugs and alcohol for all, while questing in vain for the Authentic Cultural Experience.
