A great read while traveling or while you are planning your next trip is: The Longest Way Home: One Man's Quest for the Courage to Settle Down by award-winning travel writer and actor Andrew McCarthy. Yep, that guy from all your favorite 80's movies and Weekend at Bernie's! He's on Twitter, Follow him HERE
Andrew writes about the emotional struggle of wanting to be home with his Fiance while trying to deal with the irresistible urge for that next adventure.
An over used cliche comes to mind, 'I know what you mean.' I too feel a bit guilty traveling and seeing amazing places, meeting incredible people all the while my family waits for me at home. But I have no choice, that is who I am.
Andrew is a fellow traveler, seeker and most of all a true story teller which makes this a fun and easy read for anyone who wants to escape the everyday and have a life altering adventure!
In the true art of internet plagiarism, here is part of the book description stolen from Amazon:
*On his soul-searching voyages, Andrew traces the path from his New Jersey roots, where acting saved his life—and early fame almost took it away—to his transformation into a leading travel writer. He faces the real costs of his early success and lays bare the evolving nature of his relationships with women. He explores a strained bond with his father, and how this complex dynamic shapes his own identity as a parent. Andrew charts his journey from ambivalence to confidence, from infidelity and recklessness to acceptance and a deeper understanding of the internal conflicts of his life.
