The Traveler (Breaking Free Book 2) by Denis Hickey is an exciting story of travel and living that will fascinate readers on many levels. Denis Hickey gives up everything, takes a backpack, and travels around the world, breaking free from his usual routine life. His escape from his real world to that of traveling, meeting new people, exploring new places and facing new situations changes his outlook on life and living. The author's personal journey of experiencing freedom heralds a whole new world of failure, disappointment, courage and love. As Denis Hickey explores the new things in his life that give meaning to his existence, the book inspires readers to break free from their usual routine and do something bold and different.

Traveling is an education in itself. It teaches us to absorb life, understand its development, consider change and learn how changes can be accomplished. Denis Hickey's travels to every place and his observations are philosophical, and he shares everything with readers. As his travel areas widen, the author's struggles with his own set of values and principles are also discussed. Whether its his travels in Istanbul or Santorini or any other place he has visited, the details and the essence of the places are exquisite and will create a feeling of wanderlust in the minds of readers. The author's adventure stories are stimulating and entertaining. The book will definitely motivate all those who are looking forward to new adventures and yearn for changes in their lives. It's a book that will challenge your thinking and living. I just loved the chapter on Turkey, Istanbul and the Blue Mosque. It's really exquisite.
