Book Description:
This book is a great resource for high schoolers and adults who want to learn how to travel. This book covers the basics of traveling and is an introduction to the topics, terms and processes to expect when traveling.

The goal of my book is to make travel more accessible by preparing readers to find travel activities, lodging and transportation so they can travel successfully and confidently. The book also focuses on how to stay organized, safe and manage your budget when traveling.

I’m from a small town where travel isn’t common and being a BIPOC, travel was even discouraged. This is the book I wish I had when I wanted to travel but didn’t know where to start.

Author Bio:
I am a Sr Data Analyst and Reporting Developer! I was raised in a small town in Western Pennsylvania, West Newton, and now I live in Tampa, Florida. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture: Animal Science from Pennsylvania State University. You can find me trying new recipes, planning trips, watching documentaries or trying new restaurants! I also like to volunteer with different charities and libraries to lead workshops on resumes, financial literacy, travel planning and other life skills.
My travel why is food and culture – I love food festivals and just exploring a city through food. My life travel goal is to refurbish a private train rail car for traveling across the United States and Canada!
