Oh, to travel. Few have done it as well as Abercrombie & Kent founder, Geoffrey Kent. This is Kent's autobiography. It starts as a tale of a young boy born while his mother was on safari in Rhodesia (later Zambia) - and ends as a lifelong testament to travel. From East Africa to the ends of the earth and back, the life of Geoffrey Kent will want to make want to get up and go. So, go. Just go.

One of my favorite quotes:

"Travel teaches us as much about ourselves as it does about the world—it shifts our focus away from the meager challenges of every day and recalibrates our life’s vision to something broader and much more significant. One of my prevailing philosophies is that if any individual were to find out that he or she had only six days to live, all people’s final thoughts would revolve around life’s most important things: the people they’ve loved and the places they’ve explored. Nothing shapes an individual as much as these two influences."
