Nora Livingstone was lucky enough to start traveling around the world when she was 6 months old. She moved to Germany at that young age and never stopped traveling. 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 traveling advice to life. This book allows the curious reader to think about their motivations and question their ethics. This book is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the impacts of traveling- both on the traveller and the host communities. Nora shows us that traveling and volunteering isn't always easy- but with an open mind and the right tools, it's always worth it.

    One of my clients wrote this to our facebook page. SO it's not my review but I think you will love it, anyway! I definitely experienced culture shock for the first few days and periodically throughout my time in Nepal. The language barrier was really challenging for me throughout the entire trip, but especially at the beginning when I was really overwhelmed by everything. There was another volunteer the first week and having her there made a huge difference for me - she helped show me the ropes and just having another English speaker made the transition so much easier. I think having some overlap between volunteers is actually a great thing, and I really enjoyed getting to know her and making a new friend. Otherwise, I coped mainly just by talking to my family a lot and a few nights I watched American movies that I had downloaded which was a good way to unwind and take my mind off of everything else. On the other hand, reading "Traveling with Baggage" before getting there... More > was also really helpful because it helped me acknowledge exactly where my feelings were coming from and know that they were normal and that if I was feeling down it was most likely all my own struggles with culture shock rather than anything external causing it.< Less
