Some people spend much of their life traveling. Others work hard, saving up money for that one great trip a year. Phil is in the latter category. For him, work exists only to provide money to do what he wants to do. As a result, every year, he leaves his job – either quits it or takes an extended period of time off, and travels.
Last year, after talking to a few friends, Phil decided to work with us to put his travels together into book form. In essence, this work is a travel journal. It contains snapshots and/or in depth descriptions of where he has been during his travels. Since Phil liked to go to places that are more out-of-the-way e.g. Baffin island, Nunavut, Canada or the Galapagos Island, the book is not your run-of-the-mill travel book.
Adding to this Phil’s aversion for hotels, preference for hiking and general avoidance of densely populated regions and you have a very unique approach. It was up to us to compile the information in a way that made sense. Since Phil is let’s say a little slapdash with his writing, the book required more hands-on work than is the norm. In this case, the nature of the work and the character of the author encouraged close interaction. This book was demanding but, in the end, the hard work paid off. Both of us were very happy with the final product.
