Before You Go Abroad Handbook Book: $14.95
e-book: $5.99

Check out our newly released book: Before You Go Abroad Handbook! The first in the book series Travel Smart Strategies.

This book contains over 127 tips and tools any international travel should know about before they venture abroad. Available on Amazon in either paper or e-book format.

Are the tips and tools really secret?

Actually yes, they are secret—at least no one told us about them before we journeyed abroad and we had done a lot of research and preparation. We had to discover many of them the hard way as we traveled around the world to more than 70 countries. These are the secrets we wished we had found, in a concise and consolidated book like this one, before we went abroad.

This is a great, handy and concise book for prepping for a trip abroad. Read is before you start planning and you will not get stuck with poor planning. I have traveled quite a bit abroad and this book covers things I never thought of and gives websites for easy reference for more information. This will save you HOURS of research on your own and help you have that fabulous trip of a lifetime!

What a great book – so easy to read and overflowing with information! These are the things travelers really need to know, from getting through customs to eating street food. I love that they have gone through all the information “out there” and add their extensive travel experience to provide us with concise suggestions. The fact that they provide specific websites for everything makes this an invaluable resource. Whether you are an experienced traveler or a first-time adventurer, this book is a must have. I bought the physical book because I love to unplug and read. That said, I don’t want to go on my trip without this resource, so I am getting the ebook as well.

If you’re wondering whether you need this book, just take a look at the Table of Contents. All kinds of things you really need to know — and many you didn’t even know to ask! I wish I’d had this information prior to my trips abroad. I’ll definitely have an easier trip next time.
