Ensure you read Why You Should Travel Young by Jeff Goins.
Along the same line, here’s a quote to think on today:
You are frightened of everything. You call it caution. You call it common sense. You call it practicality. You call it playing the odds, but that’s only because you’re afraid to call it by its real name, and its real name is fear.

Where to find great, cheap, local food?
Author of LegalNomads.com
Chances are good many of you try to figure that out in each and every destination you visit. I’m no different. To figure that out in Chiang Mai, I looked no further than Jodi Ettenberg. And she happens to have a book coming out about travel foods
For those that don’t know Jodi Ettenberg, you should. I had the pleasure of spending a considerable amount of time with her while we both lived in Chiang Mai earlier this year — and, what can I say, I’m a fan. She’s just an all around amazing individual. From day one, her fascination and obsession with great food was apparent. Every night, there were a few new travelers meeting the regular crew for dinner by Mrs Pa’s Smoothies. Each one of them wanted to know, “Which food to try tonight?” Jodi had the answer. And now she’s sharing her food knowledge from all over the world (not just Chiang Mai) with you.
Here’s the trailer for the book:
For the food lovers (isn’t that everyone?), you can head over to Legal Nomads and sign up to be notified when there is more available about the food book.
