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 travel guide, one part travel essays and photos, and one part memoir 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 a few months.

Each chapter provides perspectives from both authors and tackles a different part of the journey, including:

- Practical travel guide providing tips on how to leave your job, budget, pack, plan your route, pace yourself, adjust to culture shock, and re-enter
- A look into David and Alexandra's story as they traveled the world together and got to know one another
- Colorful essays about adventure travel and all the life-changing moments that come along with it

This inspiring book is for all the dreamers, would-be adventurers and endearingly practical professionals looking to scratch the travel itch and take a risk on what may be the best time of their lives. 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.
