As thrilling as travel can be, planning a great trip can be intimidating for those hoping for a rewarding and personalized journey. The travel editors at Fathom have spent years gathering a treasure trove of recommendations and stories from a network of interesting people who travel well (chefs, novelists, designers, innkeepers, musicians) in places both well-known and off the beaten path. All of this has been beautifully packaged up in the first edition of Travel Anywhere (and Avoid Being a Tourist), a book that will inspire the traveler in you, no matter what kind of experience you're looking for. Along with compelling anecdotes, suggestions, interviews and imagery, you'll find a clever approach to being a better traveler and global citizen – everything from how to go off-grid and where to go for a once-in-a-lifetime meal, to cool ways to give back and learn more about other cultures. Whether you're getting on a plane or sitting on the couch, this book navigates readers through the full trip journey, celebrating travel inspiration, experiences and the lingering memories of it all.
About the Author
Jeralyn Gerba and Pavia Rosati launched Fathom in 2011 as a women-led, design-minded, editorially driven travel website that connects passionate travelers to the world's best places, people and products. The idea: to celebrate the reasons why we pack our bags and hit the road, making the world as accessible as it is wondrous. The company spent years crafting its voice, honing its point of view, and building an archive of anecdotes and tips from a global network of creative contributors from all walks of life, attracting a loyal following along the way. In 2017, Fathom launched their boutique travel advisory service, Fathom Concierge, specializing in bespoke trip-planning services with an editorial eye. Team Fathom travels as much as possible, scouting, questioning, and sharing with like-minded travelers along the way.
'a snackable compendium of experiences from Fathom. It gives us a list of the great food halls of the world, suggests hostels that don't look or act like hostels and offers ideas on where to get into hot water (think hydrothermal experiences). This is a book to keep (secretly) on your desk for a Monday when the freedom of a weekend still makes all destinations seem possible.' -Los Angeles Times
