What People Are Saying

“Travel blogger Holmes (I’ve Gotta Pack, 2011) encourages travelers to leave their stress behind in this motivational memoir… Almost everyone wishes that they could travel more, but so few people are able to make it a priority. With the omnipresent stresses of work and family, it can be easy to put off desired travel unless someone gives you a friendly shove, as the author attempts to do here. Holmes is an affable, if idiosyncratic, tour guide… and by making clear how much fun she had and how much she cherishes her memories, she’ll instill a powerful desire in the hearts of readers to do similar things with their own friends and family members. Indeed, by the end of the first chapter, some readers may start planning excursions of their own. A lighthearted travel book that encourages through example.”

— Kirkus Reviews

Travel Light – Regular People Go On Adventures Too takes you on one woman’s delightful and adventurous journey traveling the globe all while learning, growing, laughing, and experiencing the gift that only travel provides.”

— Kasie Smith, West Michigan Woman Magazine

“Holmes fills these stories with rich, juicy details about heart-pounding, sweat-drenched hiking, biking, golfing, paddling, fishing, skiing and backpacking excursions….”

Blueink Review

“With her exuberant memoir, Travel Light, Laura R. Holmes shows how she went from being overworked to enjoying the fun, transformative power of travel, all without breaking the bank…Lighthearted and chatty, the book is filled with tales of close-to-home adventures and misadventures.”

— Foreword Clarion Reviews
