In the age of programmed living, ‘Roam’ is a guide to finding what else is out there and to meld it meaningfully into our psyches. This book is full of unexpected experiences in unusual places, where we tried to blend in with the rhythms of the native culture.

Eileen Curtis and Pat Williams invite readers to join them as they share their adventures across the globe and reflect on the importance of self-growth and mindfulness in “Roam: Mindful Adventuring Across the Globe.” Selected from their visits to over a hundred countries, the authors share seven journeys they deem the best of the best. Each dramatic story crosshatches themes of history, ritual, sublime panoramas, primitive spaces, high-wire adventure and reflective ruminations of mind and heart.

From swooping across Tanzania’s vast Serengeti plain to huddling with shamans in New Mexico, the authors’ travel insights go far deeper than typical Paris and Rome travel guides. Curtis and Williams’ seven journeys take them to Kenya and Tanzania, the Spanish Camino, Peru, Turkey, the Galápagos, Nepal and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The narrative invites readers to live vicariously through the authors’ festal meals, anxious moments and zany episodes, all of which bring laughter and wonder to this theater of travel. Curtis and Williams deftly twine their knowledge of culture, art, history and spirituality throughout each enticing adventure.

“In the age of programmed living, ‘Roam’ is a guide to finding what else is out there and to meld it meaningfully into our psyches. This book is full of unexpected experiences in unusual places, where we tried to blend in with the rhythms of the native culture,” Curtis and Williams said.

Through adventure, wisdom and meaningful storytelling, Curtis and Williams share with readers how mindful travel embeds one’s memory more intensely and offers the gift of rich post-travel reflection. Ultimately, “Roam” provides readers a pleasurable gambol to hidden places across the continents while engaging in life’s deepest questions.
