Living On the Edge
by Neil Selinger

This fascinating travel guide and memoir recounts author Neil Selinger’s journey through more than 40 countries over a 22-year period of time. The anecdotes and reflections he shares are from photos and from memories, as few notes were kept. The captivating details about the people, cultures, history and geography of places are as far flung and diverse as Brazil, Kenya, India, and Bosnia. Mostly travelling on his own, Selinger had countless once-in-a-lifetime adventures, and a few misadventures as well, while meeting and befriending kind and generous people from around the world; living with locals, avoiding tourist traps, enjoying delicious local cuisine; and being awed by extraordinary scenery. Highly readable and full of invaluable advice and observations, Living On the Edge is a must read for both armchair travelers and real travelers alike.

When the British Columbia author Neil Selinger first caught the travel bug, he caught it bad! Since his first trip to Australia back in 1998, Selinger has travelled to more than 40 countries, often staying in one country for months at a time. Fortunate to have been able to retire early, Selinger considers those travels—through Africa, Asia, Western and Eastern Europe, the Americas and dozens more—to have been a journey both of discovery and of personal growth. While learning so much about himself, Selinger also learned much about other cultures, people and ways of life, making long-lasting friendships in the process. Grounded when the Covid-19 pandemic forced him home in early 2020, Selinger decided to put his vast treasure trove of memories to paper, so others could learn from, delight in, and be inspired by his travel adventures. Travel vicariously with Neil by going to the website to view photos relating to the events in the book.
