It’s time to turn to Lonely Planet’s extensive travel resources and begin planning the rest of your life.
You Only Live Once is not just another collection of bucketlist of big-ticket items. We’ve all heard about Venice and, yes, it is probably worth going to Italy to see its waterways. Instead, hopefully you’ll take away something more from this book: a resolve to live life to the fullest, to add a dash of joie de vivre to every day.
What all the ideas contained within have in common is that they’re starting points. They will reignite long-forgotten desires – to learn an instrument or a language – or spark new and unexpected ambitions: why shouldn’t you move to Provence for a year?
When you know what’s stopping you, you can start working on a solution. Perhaps this book will be as useful in helping you identify obstacles as will be for refining your month’s or your year’s travel experiences.
