Destination Earth &ndash A New Philosophy of Travel by a World-Traveler is the result of this life-transforming journey. While many travelers today concern themselves with destinations solely for amusement relaxation and entertainment the author proposes a more meaningful rewarding and fulfilling way of viewing Travel and its relation to Life.

Ideas and experiences are interwoven into a newly created Philosophy of Travel that is practical and easy to read.
