I Feel Free: Real Short Stories From The Magical World Of Music Festivals & What They Teach Us About Living Purposeful Lives

by Nealey Stapleton

These short stories are real life accounts. They are as funny, dirty and life changing as a music festival can be.

We’ve been going to music festivals since 2004. We’ve seen Bruce Springsteen rip it up on the guitar while on his knees in true rock god fashion, we’ve seen Willy Nelson strum his guitar and that iconic long hair, we’ve seen Paul McCartney emanate harmonious Beatles tunes from his piano, we’ve seen Robert Randolph, Buddy Guy, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beach Boys, Radiohead, Widespread Panic, The Flaming Lips, Tom Petty, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers, Umphrey’s McGee, Capital Cities, Alt-J, Jeffrey James and the list goes on for several pages ranging from the most famous musicians to the least known and everything in between.

We’ve seen the legends and that in turn has made our tales truly legendary. We have also had our fair share of laughter and mud. We’ve experienced the incredible mental freedom that being at a music festival facilitates, and with that, we impart these narratives.

Meeting the Middle East: Travels in Arabia

by Jason Smart

Meeting the Middle East is a lighthearted travelogue through twelve countries of Arabia. Starting in the Gulf State of Qatar, Jason Smart sets out on his whirlwind tour. From the futuristic skylines of Doha and Dubai to the ancient temples of Petra and Byblos, he visits some of the greatest cities this often-misunderstood part of the world has to offer.

Among his adventures, he swims in the Dead Sea, takes a transit through Saudi Arabia, sees the bullet holes of Beirut and almost succumbs to heat exhaustion in Bahrain. Find out how a Land Cruiser rams him off the road in Qatar, and why, in Kuwait, he almost gets into a fight with a large man wearing a white robe. As his journey continues, he takes a day trip to Israel, has a memorable encounter with a Turkish barber in Istanbul and experiences the warmth of the Kurdish people in Iraq. His journey ends in Ajman, the smallest of the United Arab Emirates, where he gets to see some of the more unsavoury sights of the Middle East.

Meeting the Middle East is Jason Smart’s ninth travel book.

A Walk on the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail - A Hiking Journal

by Dale Olausen

The Juan De Fuca Marine is considered by many to be one of Canada’s finest hiking trails. It hugs the southwestern shore of Vancouver Island, between Jordan River and Port Renfrew for a distance of about 48 kilometres. Like its (perhaps) more famous neighbouring hiking trail just to the north, The West Coast Trail, it features both beach and forest hiking along a rugged coastline. The hiking is a nice test of one’s fitness, the views are spectacular, the wildlife (marine and forest) is plentiful and the people are friendly. What more could one ask for?

What follows is a journal of a five day trip, taken in early September of 2002. It is about 13,000 words in length (60 to 90 minutes reading), and contains numerous photographs of the trail. There are also sections containing a brief history of the trail, geology, flora and fauna, and associated information.

How to Become a Travel Writer: An Essential Guide to Creating a Successful Career in Travel Writing

by Alice Clevenger

If you're someone who enjoys travelling and sharing your experiences through writing, then this book is for you!
Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.

These days, anybody can become a travel writer. Browsing through online blogs alone, you will find hundreds (if not thousands) of individuals who have taken on the challenge to write about their travel experiences in a compelling or persuasive way. However, not all of them can rightfully claim to be a successful travel writer. Being a travel writer and being a successful travel writer are two completely different things.

First and foremost, to be a travel writer, you need to be an excellent writer to begin with; one who has the uncanny ability to write in a way that entertains, vividly describes a place, and makes the reader feel as if he's actually there too. In order to be a successful travel writer, though, you need even more: You must also be a good photographer, a good conversationalist, a good eater, a good scout, and so much more. You need to be able to tell the stories of other people living in the locale that you are visiting. And the reward for developing these skills? A successful travel writer gets paid to do all of this. To sum it up, if you're interested in becoming a successful travel writer, and you're willing to go the extra mile - both literally and figuratively, then you too can make a fruitful career in travel writing. Let's get started!

In the footsteps of an ass

by Alan.s. Robinson

A light hearted account of a walk along the Robert Louis Stevenson Trail in southern France, following in the footsteps of the author of Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. When Stevenson set off in the late1870's to walk from Le Monastier to St Jean it was to collect material that formed the basis of his early book 'Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes'. The route of Stevensons' meandering travels is now an established long distance trail. This is an account of my meandering thoughts as I followed in the footsteps of Stevenson and his donkey.

Camino: Laughter and Tears along Spain’s 500-mile Camino De Santiago

by Clark III, John H.

A dream fulfilledTraveling overseas and backpacking around Europe seemed like an out-of-reach dream for John Clark, until he learned of the Camino de Santiago in Spain, a 500-mile pilgrimage across the country that dates back more than 1,200 years. With encouragement from family and friends, never having traveled outside the United States, the self-proclaimed homebody from Texas hopped on a plane at age 53 alone and headed for the Iberian Peninsula. It wasn’t just the beginning of a month-long journey, but also, as he would discover, the beginning of a new life.Facing fear, regret and realityWhen he arrived in Pamplona, home of the famous San Fermin Running of the Bulls Festival, Clark immediately began to regret his decision. To put it bluntly, he was scared to death. Possessed by an obsessive mind, he could not shake the idea that he was all alone in a foreign country, some 5,000 miles and an ocean’s distance away from home, about to go on a very long walk with nothing but a backpack full of basic supplies. His first impulse was to simply pack up and go back home, but somehow, though full of anxiety, he survived that first sleepless night in a hotel room near the Plaza del Castillo, and began his trek the following day.What did he discover?What happened to John Clark on his 500-mile pilgrimage? Did he make it? Find out when you crack open this colorful, insightful, and revelatory memoir full of tears and triumph. Be inspired as you experience this harrowing and heartwarming coming-of-age story that proves it’s never too late in life for a new adventure.
