Camino De La Luna - Forgiveness By Pearl Howie
eBook (PDF): $8.43
It takes something really powerful to make you leave Hawai’i (or you know, running out of money). I found myself called back to England by my heart, but not for long. It wasn’t yet time... More > to settle, it was time to explore another country I’d once fallen in love with, Croatia and to see if I could find a home, a place to rest and write. I didn’t have any idea quite how much more I had to learn, to understand and this journey was going to show me, above all things, the power of forgiveness.< Less
Free - Feeling Real Emotions Everyday (Without Pictures) By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $0.00
WARNING – this book contains strong language. Because when you wake up to yourself after forty years “dear me” just isn’t going to cut it. I wrote this to express everything I... More > felt on waking up and as a manual for myself on how it feels to be free (just in case I ever forget). My practice, whatever it is on any given day, is to help people feel alive, to wake them up. The tragic part is that they often wake up for a moment; for one second, for a song, for an hour, for a day or a week, they wake up to themselves and then they disappear again. I don’t want to live like that any more. So this book is for me and it is for you, because I want you to wake up too and stay awake. Maybe you are my beloved, maybe you are my sister, my friend, a stranger who I will never meet, but I want you to wake up. This world is too miraculous for you to miss it.< Less
Camino De La Luna - Unconditional Love By Pearl Howie
eBook (PDF): $8.52
In June 2016 I decided to sell my house of 22 years and leave my comfort zone. Slowly the Camino de Santiago showed itself and I decided, with no rucksack or hiking experience to start... But... More > that’s another story, the one that led to this. My Camino taught me to let go, to travel light and wash my clothes in the shower, but most importantly it taught me to trust my heart and my feet, to let my journey unfold naturally, instinctively, intuitively. In the words of the theme song from my favourite TV show, “Nobody knows where they might end up” when they follow their heart. Riding high on reaching the true destination of my Camino I raced to the airport to leave a country I'd fallen in love with but which I’d had enough of (for the moment). There were two flights out that night; Seattle or Vancouver. My heart was calling me to Seattle, the Emerald City, the home of my TV family, but it all depended on my cab driver and how fast I could run with a loaded rucksack.< Less
Camino De La Luna - Take What You Need (Part 2) By Pearl Howie
eBook (PDF): $8.42
This is a book for people who wake up at 5am (or 3am) worrying. Sometimes genius and the truth arrive at this time, sometimes it's just your mind or your ego spinning lies, keeping you awake,... More > freaking out your body, making you sick, torturing you, trying to keep you small. I've been there. Years, months and just hours ago. And it is so wonderful to be able to choose to get up and use this time to greet the dawn, to get clarity and change my life, or to soothe the beast and be able to go back to sleep in peace, and wake again knowing that there is nothing to be afraid of, that I am life and my life is perfect and we are all perfect. This is a book about faith, about adventure, about living with my heart open and letting go of the fear of being myself. In June 2016 I decided to sell my house of 22 years and leave my comfort zone. I had no idea where I would go next, but slowly the Camino de Santiago showed itself and I decided, with no rucksack or hiking experience to start... (Part 2)...< Less

Japan Is Very Wonderful By Pearl Howie
eBook (PDF): $8.53
Japan was the beginning of something extraordinary. Much of who I was on that trip has disappeared. Relationships, business, home, beliefs have all gone or changed radically. But Japan was not... More > my trip, this was the escape of a lifetime for a client. I discovered that amazing things don’t just happen when you follow your dreams, they also happen when you help others follow theirs. My guidebooks have always been “an escape in a box” a tour you can follow and do yourself – this one is eight nights in some of the most beautiful places (and hotels) in the world. (It also helps if you eat fish and aren’t scared to get naked in front of others.)< Less
The Mini-Guide to Cozumel Day Trips (Cozumel Pearl Farm and Temazcal Cozumel) from Pearl Escapes 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my guide to two incredible day trip escapes in Cozumel. If you have just one day to spend in Cozumel (for example, you're on a cruise) you... More > have a really, really tough decision ahead of you. Normally I only recommend one sight or escape in each location, but I cannot pick between these two. I also normally recommend somewhere to stay, how to travel and a nice restaurant – but you won't need any of this if you're on a cruise that stops for one day in Cozumel. I started writing these guides because I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or figuring out what to do when I did take time off, so, I thought, "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Tuscany With Teenagers (Livorno, Florence, Viareggio and Pisa - the Hotels, the Duomo, the Pool, the Pizza, the Passiagata, the Beaches, the Beach Club, the Plane, the Trains and the Taxis) from Pearl Escapes 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $3.93
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my guide to travelling around Tuscany with teenagers. People often think of teenagers as difficult or complaining, well I have to say that... More > we had more travel snarl ups on this trip than I've had on the rest put together and the girls were uncomplaining, patient and more grown up than most grown ups (although those eyes looking up at me on the delayed British Airways flight begging "will we actually get there" will haunt me for a bit). I started writing these guides because I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off (I could never have planned this trip!) So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Massage, Spa Treatments and Healing from Pearl Escapes 2017 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $1.33
Seven years ago I had a traditional massage in Morocco and felt the deep physical, mental and spiritual healing that can come from a great treatment. I started researching massages and spas,... More > particularly traditional treatments from around the world; I travelled to China, Japan, Mexico, Iceland, Tuscany and tried ancient treatments in central London, then I started writing about them so that others could benefit from this research. In 2016 I experienced the most powerful healing yet, in a Native American spa in Arizona. It's all in this book. Was the healing all down to this one incredible treatment, or was it the cumulative effect of years of exploration? I don't know, but wherever you want to start, this guide to over 300 different massages and spa terms will help you plan your healing journey.< Less
