Kyle James is an Amazon Best Selling Author, Traveler and Food Truck Entrepreneur but a few years ago he took his dream job in the sports department of a major university in Colorado and two weeks into the position, he came home and told his girlfriend that he’d made a terrible mistake taking this job.
“It was the first time in my life that I actually thought I was going to die, or at least have to fight for my life.”
That drove them to quit everything and travel to 15 different countries in 114 days and along the way Kyle did something that he never thought he’d do. He wrote a book detailing their travel adventures from first landing in Paris thinking THAT was a treacherous travel day to almost capsizing on a ferry in Thailand.
