About Mary Bartnikowski


Suddenly one day Mary sold everything she owned and launched herself into a new life on a never ending world adventure, reinventing herself after divorce, being dissed, and deciding to be done with Silicon Valley.

No she didn’t have a fat bank account or sugar daddy to support her decision, in fact few people thought she was sane when she sky-rocketed reinvention to start her new life.

She did know one thing.

Her heart said, don't listen to the haters, get out there and discover the world now!

You need a kick in the pants on a new life?

Read this book. And as her reviews have said:

"This book will inspire you and open your mind to what you believe is possible to achieve on minimum money and oodles of passion and vision."

Mary's stories along with her stunning photographs depict so well the true story of one woman's love affair with the world. Traveling on a shoe-string by bus, boat, motorcycle, and rickshaw she is the living example that you can dust off your dreams and reinvent your life today.

"Mary connects with animals, sea creatures, people and leaders of all walks and backgrounds and conveys it all with an open heart, laugh out loud humor and down to earth, genuine story telling which will have you sometimes in tears."
- Catherine Ramsey

"This book will help give you the courage and confidence to believe in your dreams and will have you realising; if one woman can do this on her own, then anything is possible."
- Lynika Cruz, Author and Speaker

"If you are a woman (or anyone else, I suppose) looking to travel the world but have some doubts or reservations, then this book was written especially for you!

The author tells us her story of chucking it all and deciding to find true happiness...wherever it may lead her. Her travels bring her to the most interesting places and she meets some of the most interesting people on the planet (including the Dalai Lama himself!)

"The writing and tone is fun and the photographs (she a pro) are spectacular...really."
- Marianne Davis
