From living in a van on the streets of San Diego, to growing chocolate with indigenous tribes in Central America, to teaching in the Middle East and volunteering in Africa, best-selling author Gregory V. Diehl has followed a worldly and unconventional path through life. Leaving his California home as a teenager, he fully immersed himself, living and working, in 45 countries across the globe - all by age 28. In Travel as Transformation, he puts his diverse cultural experiences on display and asks the listener to question how their own identity has been shaped by the lifestyle they live.
As you delve into Travel as Transformation, you will learn just how profoundly travel can influence your perception of yourself. Diehl teaches aspiring travelers, vagabonds, and nomads to let go of their internal inhibitions and former sense of self. To encourage world wanderers to embrace change, he shares his own stirring experiences of transformation across Costa Rica, China, Morocco, Armenia, Iraq, Monaco, Ecuador, and more. By embarking on this nomadic journey alongside him, you will learn to examine all of humanity through unbiased eyes and discover all that lies just beyond your backyard. A new, vast cultural experience awaits.
To travel with a truly open mind is to forget who you were when you started. It is to be constantly born anew, and identify with ways of existence you did not know were possible. Travel as Transformation will give you the wisdom, the inspiration, and the resources to conquer the limitations placed on you by your home culture. It's time to take advantage of everything the world has to offer and become everything you can be.
"If Travel As Transformation doesn't challenge you to reach for the life you want, it's time to check your pulse. Gregory's matter-of-fact mode of writing will make you uncomfortable - and that's the point. Well worth the read." (Chris Backe, One Weird Globe)
"Gregory preaches the true meaning of what travel is about: getting out of your comfort zone and exploring the world for an extended period without limits. When cultures collide, great things can happen for the traveler." (Nicholas Kontis, author of Going Local: Experiences and Encounters on the Road)
"Travel As Transformation has set a new standard for the digital nomad movement! It should be read by everyone who is brave enough to question his or her identity and answer the question 'Why do I believe what I believe?' - but especially by digital nomads who want to create an abundant life by making a meaningful impact on this world. Gregory impressively describes his own path and shows you how your paradigms and your belief system runs you and impacts your present life." (Simone Sauter, author of Why Heartbreak is Worth It: A Step-By-Step Guide From Pain to a Happy Life)

Why do you believe what you believe?
"Travel As Transformation", in my opinion, has set a new standard for the digital nomad movement! It should be read by everyone who is brave enough to question his/her identity and answer the question „Why do I believe what I believe?“, but especially by digital nomads who want to create an abundant life by making a meaningful impact on this world. Gregory impressively describes his own path and shows you how your paradigms and your belief system runs you and impacts your present life – and most importantly, he explains how traveling can help you to leave your past behind, to free yourself from the person who you think you are and asks the right questions to guide you the way to find out your true identity.
I highly recommend you to read it, you will appreciate it.
