Nora was lucky enough to start travelling around the world when she was 6 months old. She moved to Germany at that young age and never stopped travelling. This book shares stories, insights and lessons she has learned while on her travels. This book is a mix of personal lessons (taken from her experiences), anthropological insights (remembered from her formal studies) and crisis intervention tools (which she has used as a suicide intervention specialist). From culture shock stories that involve tubs of peanut butter to real advice on how to help others while you are helping yourself Nora brings travelling advice to life. This book allows the curious reader to think about their motivations and question their ethics. Nora has included chapters on ethical thinking, responsible giving, compassion fatigue and stress in the field. This book is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the impacts of travelling- both on the traveller and the host communities. Nora shows us that travelling and volunteering isn't always easy- but with an open mind and the right tools, it's always worth it.
