We 'Rediscover Travel' with Author Seth Kugel


“If our greatest travel stories happen when things don't go as planned, why do we plan so much?” Seth Kugel seeks to answer this question in his new book called “Rediscovering Travel: A Guide for the Globally Curious.” Kugel wears many hats: he is a professional traveler, author, and YouTube host of two channels, Amigo Gringo and Globally Curious. Kugel is a freelance journalist who frequently contributes to The New York Times, and was the paper's Frugal Traveler columnist from 2010 to 2016.

As part of his book tour, Kugel is making a stop in Southwest Florida. Join us as we discuss his career as a travel aficionado and the details of his new book.
