Description

Popular travel YouTuber and content creator Drew Binsky, who has visited every single country, walks readers through the most amazing places in the world and shares everything  you need to know to go anywhere you want.

In 2021, Drew Binsky completed his 10-year journey to travel to every country in the world—all 197 of them. Now, for the first time, Drew reveals his craziest stories and best moments, even from places the UN deems the most “dangerous” like Afghanistan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. 

As you’ll discover with Drew as your guide, the world is more accessible than you think—and no matter where we’re from, people around the globe have more in common with us than differences. 

Just Go offers readers the adventure of a lifetime, presenting not only the tricks Drew himself used in his trips, but also the best-kept secrets from every corner of the world. Just Go is equally a practical handbook for globetrotters and aspiring travelers as it is an intimate and heartwarming celebration of people and cultures all over.

In this fun and friendly guide, Drew will show you how to:
  • Obtain visas for obscure destinations
  • Make fast friends with trustworthy locals
  • Find and enjoy street food like a pro
  • Navigate language barriers
  • Have the greatest adventure of your life

As one of the few people who traveled the globe in 2020, Drew witnessed and recorded the pandemic response in countries everywhere—and realized how crucial it is for the world to reconnect. In Just Go, filled with photos, stories, and tips Drew has never before shared, you’ll find the toolkit and the inspiration to do just that: get out there and go wherever you want!

Have you ever wanted to travel the world connecting with locals? Drew Binsky, one of the youngest people in history to visit all 197 countries in the world, wrote a guide called Just Go, to help people learn how to travel the world like a pro. In Just Go, Drew covers safety tips and preparedness tricks. One of his pro tips is "find reputable touring companies." One of the most important things I learned from the book is that you can actually get a passport from more than one country, and certain passports can get you into some countries that other passports cannot. Drew has incredible insight to traveling, and that is because he has lived it by impressively going to all 197 countries around the world. In Just Go, Drew gives a packing list and tips on using ChatGPT or asking a friend on how to find your next big adventure. He also shares how to say "thank you" around the world, which can help you be more friendly when conversing with the locals in whichever country you travel to. Throughout the book, Drew shares his adventures and his photos from his journey around the world, and he gives his best tips for being a travel vlogger. If you are looking for a book that gives you the inside scoop on traveling the world, this book is for you. I give this book five out of five stars, and I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for their next adventure. I might just try that challenge of asking ChatGPT what adventures I should try next.

I couldn't put this down. Drew Binsky is currently the youngest person to have visited all 197 countries in the world (a feat he accomplished by age 31). As someone who does not spend a lot of time on Youtube, I found myself curious to look into Binsky's popular videos that he references throughout. Binsky pairs travel advice with anecdotes of his experiences in a way that is truly inspiring. The thesis, in short, is that most of humanity is good, and that by opening ourselves up to the world and its inhabitants, we will see just how much we have in common. A true must-read for avid travelers or for those who are just looking to read about someone else's adventures.

This was such an enjoyable read. The book includes travel advice as well as stories from some of Binsky’s adventures around the world. Any kind of traveler can benefit from this book as it inspires and furthers wanderlust. I especially appreciated the stories about some countries I do not plan to travel to, which is one of the main reasons why Binsky is such a valuable voice. Through his passion, Binsky distinguishes governments from people and shows more similarities among people than not while still celebrating other cultures. I am eager to check out his videos now!

Thank you NetGalley and BenBella Books for the advanced copy. All opinions are my own.
