Announcing My «A DECADE a Nomad» Summer Book Tour

Last month, I announced the release of my next book, A DECADE a Nomad: A Traveler’s Journey Home.

It’s about how exactly I became a traveler, my entire life as a backpacker, all of the lessons I learned, and what those lessons mean for travelers. It features stories I’ve never told and goes deeper into my philosophy on travel than I ever have upon this blog.

This book follows the “emotional” journey of a vacation all over the world: obtaining the bug, the planning, leaving, the highs, the lows, the friends, what goes on when you keep coming back — and the lessons and advice that include all that.

And the first reviews have been very good!

“In his heartfelt explanation and exploration, Matt runs through just why he’s been out there, backpacking the world for a decade. By the finish we’ve definitely realized, like Matt, how important travel is and how escaping . there, on the highway, could make you, me and the world an improved place. It’s an excellent pity certain people towards the top of the world’s power pyramid never really had slightly taste of the nomadic experience.” — Tony Wheeler, founder of Lonely Planet

“Throughout his ruminations on what travel affected him, Kepnes interweaves his tales of friends, girlfriends, and great loves discovered among exotic backdrops and how starting a blog (nomadicmatt.com) about his adventures altered just how he traveled. His story is among heartbreak, self-discovery, and the constant travel itch he previously to scratch to be remembered as the person he was said to be. An entertaining, quick read by a guy who did what most of us only dream of.” — Kirkus Book Reviews

The book comes out July 16th and I’ll be performing a book tour over the USA and Canada during the period of the summertime!
