The following is an account of my journeys throughout the world. What started off as a couple of months to get away for an adventure turned into a ten-year journey of learning, enlightenment, hard times, and moments that will never leave me, including times of joy, sorrow, love, pain, near-death experiences, and experiences nearly worth dying for. During that time, I travelled to over 60 countries, set foot on every continent, including Antarctica; worked in over half a dozen countries; and saw relics from ancient civilisations and technological marvels of the modern world. I saw the highest peak on earth, the lowest valley, and so much in between. I visited places where they had never seen a white man before and countries ruled by governances ranging from democracies to theocracies to military regimes. I saw the cruelty that humanity can have for each other as well as the love that can bind us all. I fell in love, had my heart broken a few times, and broke a few hearts of my own. ~Carpe Diem

The World at Large is a travelogue of sorts.  It’s not sort of a travelogue. It is one. The author recounts his journey through the world and the life lessons he learns along the way. I always admire people who do travel. Many of us wish we could travel more, but always have an excuse why we can’t. One thing the author said is very true, if you wait you’ll never be able to see or do anything. The book inspires me to begin planning an adventure, even if it’s just a road trip through a part of the United States I have yet to fully explore. Whether you are a world traveller or a road tripper, you will connect with the author’s sense of adventure and need to see new sites.

“…ravished my mind and transported me…” A book with a mind-gripping experience I have never imagined reading. The World At Large has given me a new insight of the diversities that can surround one’s life. The story ravished my mind and transported me into the author’s world where it were as if I could relate to, feel, understand and experience what was taking place in each page. The use of words, plot and everything about this story was indeed fascinating, profound and adventurous. I have learnt so much including how to maneuver my own life’s encounters while being true to myself. I loved it!
