"Making the world his friend, considering it a single country, and then distilling from years of first hand experience a philosophy of travel, Nicos inspires and equips his readers not only to maximize the experience, but to maximize the value of the experience."Rick Steves, Travel Writer and TV Presenter

"An epic journey with a master philosopher."Daniel Klein, New York Times best-selling author

"I know a potential best seller when I see one. This will be soon! As a world traveler, I found Nicos's book to be spot on with his philosophies, introspection, and cultural experiences. It was a delightful book to read."Tina Dreffin, Award-winning author of 'Bluewater Walkabout: Into Africa'

"Destination Earth conveys the fascinating journey of an exceptional world-traveler.

More a guide to travel than a travel guide, Destination Earth transforms how you view travel and its relation to Life. It also provides a philosophical framework for embarking on more meaningful and purposeful travels, whether it is an around the world journey, or an exploration of a region, or even a city. Destination Earth is the product of the author's unique 6.5 year continuous around the world journey, during which he visited 70 countries on 6 continents and treated the world as if it were a single destination. From Chile and Argentina to Thailand and Japan, Destination Earth explores the delicate and invisible interconnections of nations and countries, peoples and cultures, and delves deep into all aspects of travel and its transformational power:

  • Why long term and world travel is the ultimate university
  • How to create a wise-line of travel through any region
  • How to go about capturing the Soul of a country
  • How to deal with the unpleasant realities of the world while on the road
  • Balance the relationship between travel planning and spontaneity
  • How a Travel Journey is related to our Life's Journey
  • Practical advice on how to plan the exploration of regions and countries
  • 23 inspiring travel stories from the author's journey that augment the main text
  • 60 color photos from various places around the world

Ideas, experiences, travel stories and photographs are interwoven into a newly created Philosophy of Travel that is practical and easy to read.

The ebook version was created by a master digital designer, who seamlessly integrated all three elements of the book.
