Europe From a Backpack

“Important lessons about travel safety and strategies that will enrich soon-to-be young travelers ideas of what to expect and the book fills a void in the study abroad [budget travel] genre, as it isn’t a guide book or a how-to.”  — Publishers Weekly

 Submission call, and writers guidelines for future books


  1. From the back of the book.

    “If you’ve ever wanted to backpack or study abroad in Europe…

    If you want to relive your adventures…

    If you love good travel writing…”

    And this G.K.Chesterton’s quote at the beginning of the book, “The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.”
