Thank you for the gift of creative travel. The more I wander now, the more I am not lost.
This book is about two journeys occurring simultaneously. First, there is the adventurous external journey that physically takes Nick to many different parts of the world. Then there is the internal journey - the one where curiosity, creativity, passion and heartbreak all become an identity for growth, exploration and ethereal awakening. Interspersed with flashbacks of a curious childhood, this book passionately weaves the story of maturation and never ending search for the unknown.
