About the Book

Take the Journey to Your Passion and Purpose

This uplifting and inspirational story takes you on a journey with one woman who travels around the world for seven years in search of her passion and purpose.

Julie tells the story of her last seven years as a nomad of the world, with humour, poignancy and intelligence, making this dream seem attainable for any woman.

She travels unconventionally and without a plan, facing up to her own fears of loneliness and vulnerability. A testament to human spirit and courage, it is a very personal account of discovering individual self.

"To circumnavigate the seven seas is the "crown jewel" of travel. Most of us wish to see the world and experience different things. But upon our return do we see things differently? Julie Salisbury is one of those who returned a changed person. "A Seven Year Journey Around the World - Discovering My Passion and Purpose" bears witness to her remarkable achievement and resulting insight. It is this kind of direct contact with other cultures and far-away places which she experienced first-hand that brings inner enrichment".

Henri van Bentum, President, British Columbia chapter, International Circumnavigators Club


"Julie has found a fulfilling, meaningful and balanced life through her process of self-discovery. She has discovered that a positive outlook becomes a positive result and that through times of despair she trusted the universe to provide the answers. She demonstrates the law of attraction all the way through this story and will go on to inspire others to find their own passion and purpose".

Peter Sage, Entrepreneur, Motivational Coach and Professional speaker.
