About Travel for STOICs:

Travel for STOICs--THE travel book for the Solo Traveler who is Obsessive, Introverted, and Compulsive--is both a travel book and a survival manual, but of a different sort. It’s not about which great restaurants to patronize or what sites are a must-see in a given place; it’s about how to master solo travel challenges that happen in between those activities while successfully managing your O-C, introverted self. With advice from the Classical world’s Stoics and author Eva Rome, you will be empowered to experience the world with confidence and calm!
