Publisher's Summary

Featured on Good Morning America, the front page of Cosmopolitan.com, Travel + Leisure, POPSUGAR, Harper's Bazaar, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, HelloGiggles, Woman's Day, and Country Living.

After purchasing one-way flights from New York City to Paris, Kyle James and his girlfriend Ashley quit their day jobs, planned futures, and daily paradigms to see as much of the world as they could. In 114 days, they trekked across 15 countries and 38 cities with nothing but their backpacks, their smartphones, and each other. Not Afraid of the Fall is the unvarnished story of their off-the-cuff journey: from cliff-jumping off Croatia's untouched coasts, to bathing with rescued elephants in Thailand; from crashing mopeds on gravelly mountain roads in Santorini, to hitchhiking with strangers in rental cars in Hungary.

Part travel memoir, part love letter to those staring at the walls of a corporate cubicle, Not Afraid of the Fall is an inspiring book that captures the sweet mysteries of life on the road and an empowering narrative for anyone who has ever uttered the words "maybe next year."

    Story
    "Unfortunately I just could not get into this "

    I had so much hope for this book, but I just couldn't get into it and connect with the narrative. Maybe it was the narrators voice which didn't gel with me and I found too robotic.
    Maybe it was due to the fact that I felt there was aspects lacking such as when they left to go traveling how much money had they budgeted ? (They often talked about tight daily budgets - but gave no clue as to what this was - then within the first few weeks they had shopped at Zara on several occasions for clothes shopping).
    I think my expectations for the book was finding out how you could give up everything and travel, and the logistic of this along with the experiences. I love hearing other people's adventures but this audio feel flat for me and sadly didn't leave me inspired. It just felt like listening to a daily travel diary that wasn't that exciting.
    I think it was a fantastic concept. I actually don't feel great leaving this review, but it is the first ever audio book that I could not finish. Listen to the trail chapter as you may gel better.

    Story
    "Engaging Adventure "

    Kyle and Ashley had an amazing adventure through Europe and Thailand and through this book you experience it with them. Many fun tales and interesting views of millennials searching for meaning in life through Travel and a substantial amount of beer and wine. Often felt like I needed to exercise on their behalf after listening!

    Story
    "Relatable"

    I also was a twenty-something year old living in Denver, who got caught up in the redundancy of daily live. This book was an inspiration to leave a lifeless relationship and start creating my own happiness in a new city. Cheers to a life of living on the edge of your comfort zone and keeping things far from boring.

    Story
    "Good warm up for my trip. geared towards couples"

    This is how you play it safe, explore the world cheaply, and build a good relationship with your partner. they meet few people though and took few risks. good travel info, but a bit watered down for my taste. good read though
