The votes are in and we’ve picked our second book for the #GoGirlReads travel book club!

Our October/November book:

The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau

61z2upEqVmL (1)


“When he set out to visit all of the planet’s countries by age thirty-five, compulsive goal seeker Chris Guillebeau never imagined that his journey’s biggest revelation would be how many people like himself exist – each pursuing a challenging quest.  And, interestingly, these quests aren’t just travel-oriented.  On the contrary, they’re as diverse as humanity itself.  Some involve exploration; others the pursuit of athletic or artistic excellence; still others a battle against injustice or poverty or threats to the environment….

“…A book that challenges each of us to take control – to make our lives be about something while at the same time remaining clear-eyed about the commitment — The Happiness of Pursuit will inspire readers of every age and aspiration.  It’s a playbook for making your life count.”

This book is brand new and travelers all over the world are reading it! Check out Nomadic Matt’s review.
