As Australians we seem to be hardwired to wander and many of us are currently suffering from a serious case of itchy feet. We can thank the global pandemic for that one.
Fearless Footsteps is a collection of stories will take us far from our living rooms and replace a sense of isolation with a feeling of shared human experience.
Travelling the world is an exhilarating, eye-opening, life-affirming experience, though it can also be scary to even think about. There are language barriers, borders to cross, planes to fly in, and of course, the mystery of an unknown land. It can be difficult to take the chance, even when you’re yearning for adventure.
The inspirational collection of true travel stories in Fearless Footsteps proves that the best journeys are to be had when you feel the fear but go anyway.
From a nervous flier anxiously taking to the skies for the first time to a female traveller braving the Middle East, from a death-defying hike on an Indonesian volcano to the anxious freedom of finding yourself alone on the other side of the world, these stories are certain to have you looking longingly at your passport.
Created by the popular travel writing website, Intrepid Times, as part of an international writing competition that saw entries pouring in from across the globe, Fearless Footsteps is travel writing at both its most exhilarating and its most introspective.
Covering every continent from Africa to Antarctica, these carefully selected stories get to the heart of what it means to be a traveller and see the world with courage, open-mindedness, and relentless curiosity.
Fearless Footsteps is available from exislepublishing.com and wherever great books are sold. RRP$29.99
