Getting tired of the rat race and the increasing rhythm of the urban lifestyle? If your answer to this question is “yes” then pack only the necessary (don’t forget your camera) and take a trip to somewhere where you will get back in touch with nature and a more simple way of living. If you can’t make up your mind about where you would like to go, then grab yourself a copy of The Great Wide Open, a book filled with photos of people who have dared to leave the modern world behind, follow in the adventurous footsteps and have an adventure of your own.

This book will give you a glimpse into the adventures you can go on yourself

The Great Wide Open is a book which celebrates the increasing desire for outdoor adventures experienced in some of the most breathtaking places in the world. The places showed in this book are used to contrast the hectic environment most of us are trapped in; large crowds, traffic and never-ending rows of buildings are opposed with silent forests, crystal clear waters, clear blue skies and breathtaking mountains. This book will take you on an incredible visual journey featuring amazing places from Mongolia and Peru, over Iceland and Australia. It also includes the incredible behind the scenes stories of the people who provided these amazing photographs, detailing their travels and how they set off on the greatest adventures of their lives.

The Great Wide Open also features stories of the adventurous travelers

Instead of rebooting your computer or smart device and jump-starting your car to get back to a life in a cubicle, restart your mind and body by going back to the roots of existence in the wilderness. Use “The Great Wide Open” to rekindle the adventurous flame inside of you and find the strength and inspiration to exit your comfort zone and leap into the unknown. It wouldn’t be an adventure if you plan every step of your journey, it would be a simple holiday. [via]
