Essential Handbook for Serious Travelers – Book Review

By on

travellikeaproI jumped on the opportunity to read a pre-released copy of what I thought would be a handy traveler’s guide – Travel Like a Pro. This book, written by constant traveler, Mish Slade of Making It Anywhere, delves into the specifics of making the experience of travel better and becoming a true “travel ninja”. That is – tips for booking flights, finding accommodation suited to your preferences, airport survival checklists, and more.

Since I’ve been following Making It Anywhere for some time now, and know how often they travel, I was eager to find out how they do it so well. Since our long-haul trips are generally cumbersome, and I’m often making silly mistakes like forgetting to double-check where our seats are allocated during airline check-in – silly, silly.

On first review, my favorite tips so far have been related to paring down baggage and becoming more minimalist with our belongings. There are specific tips in the book to do this. I share their ethos of wanting to get good value rather than just save money – getting the most comfort at a price I feel is worth it.

Once I finish the book and it is released for public viewing, I’ll be sure to let you know so you can check it out!

UPDATE! I’ve finished the book and I’m feeling confident that my next journey on the road will be streamlined. I can’t improve on how the book is written so I won’t try to tell you all I’ve learned, but I’ve bookmarked many a resource for planning our next move. I’m most looking forward to traveling lighter and getting better flight deals. The book is written in a pleasant conversational tone so it’s an easy read, and packed with practical advice. I’d consider it a must-read for frequent, independent travelers.

AND – it’s on for $0.99 as an introductory price so now is the time to snatch it up!

The book is now available to the public on Amazon here:
