16 Awesome Travel Tips I Love

tipsIn lieu of my new book coming out this Monday (7/28/14), I decided it would be a good idea to give a few of the tips that are included in the book so you can see what it’s going to look like. Be sure to check out the book when it drops tomorrow! It’s going to cover nearly every aspect of traveling from planning to transportation.

I’ve recently been hit with wanderlust and an insatiable need to travel and see different places. When I’m home and not traveling and instead planning my next travel, I read articles to inspire, motivate and push me to visit new places. In the past week, I’ve stumbled upon three articles that have inspired me beyond any inspiration ever felt and it wasn’t until today that I realized all three were written by Clay. They’ve made such a difference in how I view my travels.
