I was so inspired by my adventures while traveling throughout Europe, India, Nepal, Tibet, China, and other exotic locales that I had to write something. Then one day early last year, an idea started to take form quickly. I was finally enabled to weave some of my stories and integrate them into one of the best love story adventures to come along in years.

Being a long term traveler means one thing: the more time spent on the road means the more encounters and experiences you will have. Most will be pleasant, amazing, and memorable. But some could be real painful. These are the memories that somehow become the most unforgettable…and not meant to be in a bad way: just more profound and life transforming. And when you come out of it to the other side of it, you become free from the pain and hurt and life begins anew. And I don’t mean physical pain, although the third world can pack a punch with some serious intestinal issues.

I’m talking about mental and spiritual growth…these are the growing pains one experiences being on the road for any length of time: Loneliness. Alienation. Estrangement. Isolation. Remoteness. Seclusion. Detachment.

Awesome! Highly recommended. The rest of your life will be so much more rewarding because you will remember where you came from.

When you read OVERLAND, you will see how Danny’s character growth evolves during his lengthy adventures.

And so will yours and if it hurts along the way, it’s probably worth it.

Mark Stephen Levy recently published his novel Overland, a fictional account of an American stranded in Kabul, Afghanistan on December, 27, 1979
