Exploring America’s Favorite Dream: The Road Trip
Where would your journey take you if you had a whole year just to travel? How often have your thought, "it’s a great idea, if only I knew how to start planning such an adventure." What if someone helped guide you through the whole process and got you moving from the dreaming to the doing?
Many people dream of taking that long trip of a lifetime, but few actually make it happen. With humor, advice and loads of practical tips, Phil and Carol White provide a "road-map" for planning your own trip in their new information-packed book, Live Your Road Trip Dream: Travel for a year for the cost of staying home (ISBN 0975292803).
With 10,000 baby boomers turning fifty each day, and many gen-Xers heading out on mid-life sabbaticals, Live Your Road Trip Dream captures the spirit of our times.
The Whites finally decided that the time had come for them to live their road trip dream. Once they were on their adventure, people peppered them with questions, not so much about what they were doing – everyone has their own dream! – but about how they actually made it happen. Phil says, "It was with the encouragement of these want-to-be travelers everywhere that we decided to share what we had learned."
Included is step-by-step real-life information on planning the trip you’ve always wanted to take. Your vision may not be a road trip, but perhaps a sailboat trip around the world, a trek through Asia or a bike trip through Europe. Whatever your dream is, the planning process is the same – only the details will vary.
Whatever your dream, be sure to take the Whites' guide along as you plan your adventure.From the Author:
Traveling for a year? It is either one of your fondest dreams – or your worst nightmare! It’s something many baby boomers have long thought of doing after we are through with the family-raising stage of life and before we succumb to old age!
The difference between whether you can make it happen or whether you can’t is not how many obstacles you have, it is how badly to you want to do something totally life-changing -- totally for yourself.
When we first told people we were thinking about doing this, no one believed us, especially the kids. "Parents don't just run away for a year!" they exclaimed.
But we did.
Once we got the rhythm of being on the road, we could feel our curiosity begin to creep out of someplace deep inside us.
If you try to plan your every move, you will begin to feel like you are on a forced march to that next commitment, not on a trip of joy and exploration.
Let the child in you live again, your trip will be over too soon.
Once you have settled back into your routine, be sure to take some time to reflect on what you've accomplished. You have done something that not many people can say they've actually made happen. Congratulations!
So, would we do it again? You bet! We will never have another experience in our lifetimes as awesome and memorable as our road trip dream.
