Travel As Transformation: Conquer the Limits of Culture to Discover Your Own Identity
When you travel to a foreign land, do you experience this new place as your old self? Or do you become a new version of you? From living in a van in San Diego to growing chocolate with indigenous tribes in Central America, to teaching in the Middle East and volunteering in Africa, Gregory V. Diehl has spent his entire adult life discovering the world and himself. Leaving his California home shortly after his 18th birthday, he went on to live and work in 45 countries across the globe by age 28. By recounting the existential lessons from his journey, Diehl challenges the reader to question how their identity has been shaped by the culture and lifestyle they know. He argues, compellingly, that travel can transform your perception of yourself along with the world. By losing your comfortable sense of self, you learn to examine your life through the structure of everything it can become. To travel solo with a truly open mind is to forget who you were when you started. It is to be constantly born anew, to discover your strengths and find your path in life. Travel As Transformation will give you the wisdom, the inspiration, and the resources to conquer the limitations placed by your arbitrary past. Whether traveler or non-traveler, its lessons about approaching the uncomfortable and unfamiliar apply to everyone.
Reviews
Chris Backe, One Weird Globe

"If Travel As Transformation doesn't challenge you to reach for the life you want, it's time to check your pulse. Gregory's matter-of-fact mode of writing will make you uncomfortable -- and that's the point. Well worth the read."

Nicholas Kontis, author of Going Local: Experiences and Encounters on the Road

"Gregory preaches the true meaning of what travel is about: getting out of your comfort zone and exploring the world for an extended period without limits. When cultures collide, great things can happen for the traveler."

Ray Simmons

"I have never read a book that describes the joy and the spiritual benefits of travel better than Gregory V. Diehl's Travel as Transformation. It is beautifully written, very well organized, and will benefit anyone who is seeking to become a traveler as opposed to a tourist. If you are already a traveler it will articulate things that you have felt and experienced. If you are about to become a traveler and have yet to start your journey, it will prepare you for the wonderful experience you are about to embark on."

Simone Sauter, author of Why Heartbreak is Worth It: A Step-By-Step Guide From P

"Travel As Transformation has set a new standard for the digital nomad movement! It should be read by everyone who is brave enough to question his or her identity and answer the question 'Why do I believe what I believe?' - but especially by digital nomads who want to create an abundant life by making a meaningful impact on this world. Gregory impressively describes his own path and shows you how your paradigms and your belief system runs you and impacts your present life."

Travis Barton, Travis Barton Life

"Travel as Transformation is the book I needed when I was struggling to define who I was when I was lost in the world, when I didn't know my calling. I needed this book then, but I will be sure and not let my nephew or future children miss out on this important text when they become old enough... I've read countless books on travel, personal development and philosophy and this one is among my top ten books of all-time."
