Enter to win a signed copy of Andrew McCarthy’s memoir “The Longest Way Home”

You’re not alone if our podcast with Andrew McCarthy, award-winning travel writer and actor, got you thinking about the transformative power of travel. After meeting Andrew in person at The Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show, I dove into his memoir, “The Longest Way Home.” I found it to be a tremendous and moving read from start to finish. So I asked Andrew if we could give away three signed copies of the book here on our blog, and he was happy to oblige.

Andrew’s authentic, intimate memoir is a very personal tale of self-examination and discovery written before marrying his fiancé of four years. Finding he was unable to commit to a marriage he knew he wanted, Andrew embarked on an adventurous journey to explore some of the world’s most exotic, beautiful, and well-known destinations, including Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Amazon, Patagonia, Vienna, Costa Rica, and more. Along the way, he also explored himself through challenging encounters that test him. This soul-searching, spiritual journey traces his transformation from actor to travel writer, and charts the internal conflicts of his life. Andrew’s book is a terrific and inspiring read for anyone who has ever experienced life-changing moments of discovery through travel.
