Read full description of the books:
"Hilarious, inspiring, and beautifully written." – George Mahood, bestselling author of Free Country
One August morning, I walked out of my Seville home taking nothing but a small, roll-aboard bag, a Eurail pass, and my husband. We were traveling with no fixed time limit, no reservations, and only a loose idea of our itinerary. Our goal was to see if we could still have the kind of spontaneous adventures we’d enjoyed in our youth. We spent three months on trains, mostly in Eastern Europe, and the results – often hilarious, occasionally harrowing, definitely life-changing – form the basis of my new book, Adventures of a Railway Nomad: How Our Journeys Guide Us Home.
"Adventurous and bold . . . full of twists and surprises." – Chris Brady, NY Times bestselling author of A Month of Italy
I traveled 6000 miles on 38 trains through 13 countries: Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, and Croatia.
"Karen's storytelling is, if possible, even more enticing than her astonishing journey." – Alicia Bay Laurel, bestselling author of Living on the Earth

Read information about the authorAfter ten years of enjoying expat life in Seville, I began to wonder if I could still have the kind of spontaneous, unstructured travel adventures I'd enjoyed in my youth. So I headed to the train station, taking nothing but a small, roll-aboard bag, a Eurail pass, and my husband. The journey took me across 6000 miles in 13 countries, mostly in Eastern Europe. My experiences — often hilarious, occasionally harrowing, definitely life-changing — are described in my new book, ADVENTURES OF A RAILWAY NOMAD: HOW OUR JOURNEYS GUIDE US HOME. Within weeks of its debut, the book had become Amazon's number one best seller in travel writing. Reviewers are calling the book "hilarious, inspiring, and beautifully written," and "adventurous and bold . . . full of twists and surprises."
If you're wondering how an American writer wound up living in Seville, I explain it all in my book DANCING IN THE FOUNTAIN: HOW TO ENJOY LIVING ABROAD. "I loved this book," wrote Lonely Planet. "I must have laughed aloud at least once in every chapter." The book takes its title from one hot night when my husband and I were sitting on the edge of a big stone fountain. Dabbling our feet in the cool water, pretty soon we were wading, then waltzing in the fountain. An old Spaniard passing by growled, "Hey you two, is that any way to behave? You wouldn't do that back where you come from." And that's the whole point. Living overseas, you get to try things you'd never do back home.
Because I'm often asked for advice about travel and expat life, I've published two short guides, PACK LIGHT and 101 WAYS TO ENJOY LIVING ABROAD. More travel tips and adventure stories appear on my weekly blog, ENJOY LIVING ABROAD. I invite you to visit me on my blog and website (enjoylivingabroad.com) so you can join me on the journey and share in the conversation...
