The Youthful Art of Midlife Travel

"...Reading this entertaining travel memoir, you’ll discover how one man's journey, prompted by a personal loss, has changed his life forever and inspired countless others.

A grandfather of seven, Chris Herrmann left his home and family in Australia and embarked on an unlikely and at times hilarious 365-day solo backpacking adventure around the world. Chris set out to live every day as an unknown adventure. He wasn’t trying to escape from life or to find himself. Instead he wanted to be free to explore and escape the normal routines and expectations of life.

While some saw his trip as crazy, he embraced it as a way to challenge himself. To push himself out of his comfort zone. He left with no purpose, other than to take each day as it came and be open to opportunities. You’ll learn how one project he initiated has benefited charities worldwide.

The Youthful Art of Midlife Travel is a retitled version of the original My Senior Gap Year book. The book has now been published in Chinese, and has been featured on TV, radio, print and online from the BBC to USA, Australia, Europe and Asia media.
