‘Get Outta Here!’ is now a travel book

We’ve taken the theme of our “Get Outta Here!” podcast and turned it into a book. Our just-published “Get Outta Here!” travel anthology features 80 experiences, adventures and destinations around the world, with bonus sections on cruising and how to save time and money when you travel.

We’ve got stories from every continent (OK, except Antarctica...) and every region of the U.S. Whether you’re a globetrotter or an armchair traveler, you’ll be inspired and entertained. Our stories will take you foraging for your supper in the English countryside, let you spend the night with a family in Peru en route to Machu Picchu and put you on the transcontinental railroad from Mongolia to Siberia. We’ve also got stories that are destination guides to cities and even countries, telling you everything you need to know about visiting places like Ethiopia, Colombia, New York and Tokyo in a mere 800 words.

“Get Outta Here!: Travel Experiences, Adventures and Destinations from Around the Globe” is available exclusively at Amazon.com: https://amzn.to/2KvXhKz

New episodes of “Get Outta Here!” are published every Wednesday. Host Beth J. Harpaz is travel editor for The Associated Press, a volunteer Big Apple Greeter and a licensed tour guide in her native New York City. She recently completed a quest to visit all 50 states.

Before becoming travel editor, where most of the news - thank goodness - is about happy people going off on nice vacations, Beth covered politics, disasters and all manner of mayhem for the AP. And not to reveal her age, but she even worked for a couple of newspapers way back in the 20th century and even wrote three books.

She does not own wheeled luggage but instead carries her belongings around the world in an ancient backpack and various tote bags.
