In My Opinion
Have you been holding out on a trip of a lifetime because you have no one to go with? In Dream, Plan and Go, Rachel McMillan encourages would-be travelers to stop waiting and go find their adventure.
Whether in your city or across the world, McMillan shares hints, tips, and personal stories to help you gain the confidence to travel—by yourself or with someone else. I enjoyed the author’s stories and took heart in her encouragement to embrace adventure no matter what stage in life we are at.
The book is filled with wonderful illustrations that made me smile and places to take notes (plus there’s even a journal you can purchase to delve even into your travels when you do go). For me, the best books are the ones that either drive me to action or leave me thinking, and after reading this one, I considered all the trips I’ve been holding off on. And it drove me to research a couple of those and start planning to go and experience my own adventure.
