Review: Travel as Transformation by Gregory V. Diehl


Hello readers,

today I have a review of a non-fiction read for you. A while ago Gregory reached out to me and asked me if I would like to review his book Travel as Transformation - Conquer the limits of culture to discover your own identity. With a degree in tourismmangement I couldn`t say no to this.

Gregory takes you on his amazing journey and tells you how travelling has helped him find himself.  I would say dive into this without knowing much, because you will be surprised how often you can relate or wish you could relate.

Now lets be realistic, to me there wasn`t much new information in this book regarding the psychological/mental aspects of travelling, but the way they are presented really amazed me. Gregorys examples were really vivid and I could understand them easily (I would have wished for that in my school books). This book packs a lot of information while still being a quick and easy to understand read. I could have read it in one sitting if I would have had the time to do so. It is really intriguing and I am sure I will pick this up again. I really think everyone who wants to know more about travelling and how culture effects us, how leaving our comfort zone helps us discover our own identity should pick this up.

All in all 4 out of 5 stars. It was really enjoyable and I liked the way Gregory presented his own experiences while still sticking to facts and research.

I hope you enjoyed todays review.
Thanks again to Gregory V. Diehl for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I see you again soon.

Take care,
📚 Nadja
