Living the Dream was founded to chronicle the planning and execution of our own long-term trips; the first of which lasted for roughly 145 days in 2010-2011 and the second was for 455 days from 2013-2014.

After planning our own travels for several years, including these long-term trips, we have researched and discussed nearly every topic that we had to address when traveling not only long-term, but short-term as well. Since searching through the hundreds of posts on this site to find the most relevant to planning your own trip is time consuming, we have published our first book, The Long-Term Traveler's Guide, to help you out!

The Long-Term Traveler's Guide


As many of the posts on this site were tailored to our own itineraries, some information that may be relevant to your dream trip may not have been included. In order to cover all thoughts required to plan your own personal long-term trip regardless of where you are from or are traveling to, we published our first book, The Long-Term Traveler's Guide in 2012.

The guide is designed to be the ultimate planning resource for all travelers and covers every topic you need to consider when planning your trip abroad. Rather than focusing on specific details like what visa travelers from the USA need for China (which may be different for someone from Japan, for example), the guide looks at the larger issues all travelers face on the road and gives resources for you to figure out how your trip may be affected, no matter where you come from or where you are going.

The Long-Term Traveler's Guide is currently on sale in print and Kindle!
