    TRAVEL AS TRANSFORMATION by Gregory V Diehl is a complete surprise package a dark horse in the race The book relates a fascinating narrative about the road to philosophical and spiritual self discovery, one which every human being can experience, and really should, because this perspective is not one being taught in conventional schools or by society at large Diehl depicts his observations and insights through the portal of his decade of travelling the world, to lands far and wide, and his exist [...]

    This book is a puzzler for me Gregory Diehl is clearly an intelligent, thoughtful young man When he asked me for an honest review, I looked at the topic, first reactions to the book, and sample pages All pointed to a book that would explore the inner and outer worlds of travel experience What puzzles me is how my reaction could be so different from most reviewers Although the book is about the ways in which travel can shake loose our preconceived notions, I had the sense Diehl traveled with his [...]

    This is an important book for all who love travel, value personal development, and want to break free of inherited cultural blind spots As a big Joseph Campbell fan, I especially liked that Gregory structured the book using many of the stages of the hero s journey Favorite quote If you begin the journey knowing that whatever is scary, difficult, and uncomfortable holds the key to progress, you cannot fail.

    I received a copy of this book through First Reads program I found it interesting to see the life lessons the author drew from his travels If you are wondering how travel can be transformative, this is a non Eat Pray Love highlight reel of the conclusions one person reached from his travel experiences There were a few quotable moments, but the writing overall seemed a bit frenetic, and could have benefited from some editing While travel certainly has the ability to expand one s horizons and make [...]

    I was given this book by the author I chose to read it because, while I haven t had the opportunity to travel as much as I d like having been to Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Bermuda a lot , Jamaica, Barbados, a handful of other Caribbean islands, various American states, Canadian Provinces, a couple of countries in Eastern Europe and quite a few in Western Europe I always find that going to another country changes me, in some way.That said, the main thing I felt, reading this book which [...]

    I found this book quite interesting taking in the experiences of a lifetime travelling across the world, which I have always wanted to do I feel as though Gregory is very passionate about what he does and wants to show and tell everybody he meets about what he has achieved in life.

    This is not your run of the mill travel book though I enjoy those immensely too The author is clearly a deep thinker who offers a lot of advice about how to view the world differently as a traveller I ve lived in several countries since leaving my home country, England, many years ago I ve lived in Germany, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, Azerbaijan and now Spain, and so much of what this author writes resonated with me He doesn t cover so much the details of where he s travelled but goes into [...]

    Memoirs is probably not right for this, but it sort of fits This is a really interesting look at how Mr Diehl came to understand his adult self through travel I didn t completely agree with some of his observations, but I saw a lot of my 20s travel self in him I definitely agree about the element of authenticity as well as truly seeing a place vs crossing it off on a checklist by passing through its airport The analogy I found most interesting was his comparison of seeing a destination as a tour [...]

    This not a travel book as one would expect I was asked to review this book by the author, because I d reviewed regular travel books, and memoires of life changing situations books This author s work is philosophical than about travel from place to place.I agreed with some of his conclusions, but as I started my overseas traveling at fifteen, nearly sixty years ago, I disagreed with other aspects if his conclusions, but then I was not asked to agree with him, but to read his book It was an easy [...]

    I need to read this twice and maybe even three times to fully appreciate what Gregory Diehl is trying to impart e.g Only curiosity can point you in the right direction.It reminded of the great George Gurdjieff Meetings with Remarkable Men which affected me so strongly many years ago before I started travelling like a Nomad Gregory Diehl is the kind of person I would like to sit next to on a long haul flight and listen to him There are fascinating thoughts and observations put into words and he i [...]

    If you re looking for inspiration on finding yourself and your transformation through travel, this is the book for you I wish there were of his personal experiences, but the few he used in explaining the ways to travel to find yourself were really great.

    Gregory Diehl
    Probably the most handsome author I ve ever seen.

    Travel as Transformation is not your typical travel book It is a journey of self discovery and finding one s own identity through experiencing different cultures and situations The author encourages the reader to immerse himself or herself in new, possibly uncomfortable, places, to help shape one s true identity Gregory uses a 10 part story to fill the pages of his book Being a world traveler, he shares a multitude of personal stories as a way to justify his message To me the book is filled with [...]

    Lilly Charysma
    Travel as Transformation is a self discovery book, with a very powerful message reinventing oneself by breaking free from society rules, by taking a chance The author is relating from his own experience how he managed to overcome his limitations and fears, using traveling as his way of understanding the world As many other readers, I believed this book was indeed a travel journal, where we see how he experienced different counties and cultures But it is so much than that It is Gregory s develop [...]

    Lisa Holloway
    What made this book so interesting to me was that the author and I have such different lifestyles The author is someone who lives a nomadic life, experiencing many different cultures and people I am a mom that has lived in the same small town for 18 years among the same people only experiencing this one culture The author has been on a journey, not only physically traveling the world, but an intentional journey to find his true self by continuously immersing himself into new cultures Each time h [...]

    I was very disappointed in this book after reading the description I felt the author was pretty critical of those that chose to live where they had always lived He was so tuned to his own calling and yearning for a nomad life style his feelings that anyone that does not experience living in multiple environments had little to gain in self realization Seemed to be blind to diversity of individual needs I was very surprised how often he mentioned wanting to have a family especially since he seemed [...]

    The author stated An artist seeks to add as many colors as he can to his palette, so he can have options Traveling expands our horizon, it gives us a way to find oneself A way to look back at our past events through different lenses We cannot change our past but we can change the way we look at our past Good read.

    Thoughts for the Wandering Traveler Gregory Diehl has written a manual for free spirited enlightened travel In my own travel, I have witnessed too many obsessed travelers going about compulsively checking off every box for every location Gregory Diehl makes the case, beautifully here, for a deeper consideration of the very purpose of travel Here he argues for a deeper appreciation of the people and culture of the places we visit along the way He wants us to shed our cultural inhibitions, by digg [...]

    Terri Schneider
    I applaud Gregory Diehl for his relentless seeking and sharing of his findings through travel This book is a testament to that thoughtful introspective process.The books merit lies in his passion for urging the reader to get out and do their own thoughtful introspection and that travel is one way to find authenticity I gave the book 4 stars for its content and important message, but I would give it 3 stars for the delivery of that message including some typos Once his detailed premise was stated [...]

    As someone who drank the Koolaid and left the USA, I can attest Diehl speaks the truth Living in another culture is transformational It is a powerful way to unhinge the programed mind and experience profound change.I m skimming through the book, and while I m nodding my head at many gems, I would like to be captivated I find myself wanting a visceral, first person account where I really feel the mask ripping away from the face of the author Donald Miller in his finer moments did this in his jo [...]

    P.J. Paulson
    It s exactly what the title and subtitle say it is I very much enjoyed the book, which delves into the depths of self to be found and re imagined when placing oneself in unfamiliar locales and circumstances Mr Diehl has richly honed powers of observation and introspection, and expresses his well thought out philosophies and experiences in a very articulate manner The book is well written, and technically well composed He explores the people of the world, not just the geographical locations and t [...]
