    [synopsis] => In this mix of memoir, guidebook, and travelogue, a married couple documents the year they took off from work and traveled the world together.

Wait for me . . . Who knew these three words said to a near stranger would start an international travel adventure? 

A Year Off is one part memoir, one part travel essays and one part travel guide, documenting the story of Alexandra and David Brown, a couple who decided to take a year off from their jobs and "regular lives" to travel the world together after only knowing each other for four months. Each chapter tackles a different part of the journey, including:

-Practical takeaways for how to take the same leap and travel, like tips on budgeting, planning, pacing and adjusting to culture shock

-A look into David and Alexandra's story as they traveled the world together and got to know one another

-Colorful memories of their travels, like a dramatic kayak ride in Milford Sound, New Zealand, an emotional evening in India, a life-changing meal in the Loire Valley, France, a hilarious makeover in Romania . . . and many more

This inspiring book is for all the dreamers, would-be adventurers and endearingly practical professionals looking to scratch the travel itch. With many gorgeous photographs and actionable travel advice, A Year Off captures all the beauty and magic of the wanderlust spirit, guiding readers on how to take the same leap and showing them just how doable a journey this type of round-the-world travel is.

Praise for A Year Off

"In A Year Off married couple Alexandra and David Brown chronicle a trip around the world and provide advice for travelers who may want to follow in their footsteps. Filled with personal stories, useful takeaways, beautiful photos and great design, chapters like "Identity Crisis" and "Financial Freak-outs" make it clear that the Browns haven't airbrushed their story." -BookPage

"Have you ever dreamed of quitting the rat race and taking a year off-and then swiftly jolted back to reality? If so, A Year Off will give you the inspiration and the courage to make it happen in real life." -The Independent
