Travel for STOICs: Empowering the Solo Traveler Who is Obsessive, Introverted, and Compulsive
by Eva Rome
Do you have an obsessive-compulsive personality? Is the idea of traveling nothing more than that: an idea? Does traveling strike you as a terrifying prospect? O-Cs can be way too circumscribed and self-regulated to accomplish the planning, get on the planes, find our accommodations at our destinations, and actually enjoy the process. Fold in introversion and you’ve got a crippling combination. Solo travel? Forget it.
Want to take the anxiety out of
Travel for STOICs is both a travel book and a survival manual, but of a different sort. It’s not about which great restaurants to patronize or what sites are a must-see in a given place; it’s about how to master solo travel challenges that happen in between those activities while successfully managing your O-C and introverted self. This book is especially for the STOIC—the Solo Traveler: Obsessive, Introverted, Compulsive—and for those who care about our well-being and happiness. With advice from the Classical world’s Stoic triumvirate: Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius (plus author and fellow STOIC Eva Rome), you will be empowered to experience the world with confidence and calm!
