Wanna win one of these thought-provoking books about travel?

During the next 24 hours, I’m going to be giving away two incredible books written by my friends. My October fundraiser is almost over, and true to my promise, I’ve saved the best for last.

remote_kleinOur first book, Remote Places To Stay, is written by Debbie Pappyn and David De Vleeschauwer, the creative team behind the Classe Tourist blog.

Elliott Advocacy is underwritten by Fareportal. Fareportal’s portfolio of brands, which include CheapOair and OneTravel, are dedicated to helping customers enjoy their trip. Whether you want to call, click, or use one of our travel apps, one thing is clear: We make it easy to take it easy.

I have three copies of this a gorgeous book about the art of escaping. If you believe that silence, slowness and space are the new luxury, you’ll connect with this book immediately. “Remote Places To Stay” presents 22 out-of-the-way destinations where you can switch off and tune in to the world around and inside you.

I’m giving away three copies to random underwriters who sign up at any level.

My second selection is from Doug Lansky, whose new book, TRAVEL: THE GUIDE is 10 years in the making. And it’s worth the wait. This book offers a highly visual new take on travel that will challenge you to rethink the way you interact with the world around you. Think of it as a do-it-yourself TED Talk on travel.

TravelGuidecoverlowresOnly, better.

I’ve had the privilege of watching this book evolve from concept to publication, and I’m so excited to get a copy into your hands. I have five ebooks to give away today and tomorrow.
