Vagabond Dreams: Road Wisdom from Central America

How much of your life is true, and how much do you accept only because it’s easy?

What if you could leave that old life behind? Just burn it down, drop off the map and live among strangers who know nothing about the person you’re supposed to be? Do you have any idea what you’d discover?

Vagabond Dreams explores the process of psychological and emotional change experienced by the traveller on their first long solo journey.

Who are you without your boxes? Are you ready to find out?
