About This Book
Wonji is a travel YouTuber who runs a channel called 'Wonji's Day'. Along with her vivid travelogues, she also shares her youthful worries that everyone goes through in their 20s and 30s. The episodes range from a blind trip to Africa by a woman alone, to her days as an employee when working overtime and punching a clock were a must, to her startup when she quit her job and pursued what she wanted to do with passion, to her internship in the U.S. at the age of 30.
This isn't just a pretty travelogue with pretty pictures and emotional sentences. She plants trees on a solo African volunteer project, showers in squalid conditions with nothing but crude cement walls, and occasionally gets into confrontations with vendors selling substandard goods and get into chi fights with taxi drivers who deliberately go in circles. This is the story of a traveler who is undaunted, picking up a backpack that weighs far more than he does, and forging ahead."
Part 1 is a snapshot of my life, part 2 is my 90-day trip to Africa, part 3 is after the trip, part 4 is my new life in the US, and part 5 is my current life as a travel YouTuber. Along with the vivid stories, the book also includes appendices with tips and tricks, including an African itinerary and essentials, a travel YouTuber Q&A, and YouTube recommendations. It's a useful guide for readers who want to go somewhere .
