A Hint of What’s to Come

A New Travel Tales Series

The Travel Tales

Adventurer Series

New Covers Group 1

Over the last four decades, I’ve interviewed nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers in my own travels to more than 125 countries throughout the world. I am weaving their 10,000 or so fantastic travel tales — as well as my own — into a psychology of travel as revealed by these very telling stories.

These are travelers I’ve met on planes, trains, buses, ships, tours, safaris, and in campgrounds, cafes, and pubs or occasionally through other travelers. These travelers and adventurers have freely shared their most personal travel tales with me, which I, in turn, get to share with you now through my Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, in general, and my new Travel Tales Adventurer Series, here, in particular.

Each ebook and audiobook in my new Travel Tales Adventurer Series will feature a selection of noteworthy travel tales on a particular, specific country or travel theme, including complete stories and briefer vignettes. (See the accompanying photos of examples of some of my forthcoming titles in the series.)

Travel tales are told here — but with this one unique difference — with my being the world’s first travel psychologist, you’ll get more of the psychological pay dirt behind the incredible travel tales told to me by these truly adventurous travelers.

Ebooks will be available soon through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google, and Apple Ibooks as well as in my own ESTORE on this website.

Similarly, audiobook versions will be avaie through Audible, Amazon, and Apple iTunes.

Expect upwards of as many as 100 forthcoming titles in The Travel Tales
 Adventurer Series.

About the Author

The Travel Tales Adventurer 


I am Michael Brein, aka The Travel Psychologist. I am an author, lecturer, travel storyteller, adventurer, and publisher of travel books and guides. I regularly appear in newspapers, magazines, blogs, and radio programs on the psychology of travel.

I am the first to coin the term travel psychology. As such, through my doctoral studies, work and life experiences, and world travels, I have become the world’s first — and perhaps only — travel psychologist.

I publish travel tales ebooks and audiobooks — collections of travel stories on very specific travel subjects, themes, and countries of interest. I also publish a travel guide series on sightseeing by public transportation.

I reside on beautiful Bainbridge Island, off of Seattle in Washington state.

An Example

Travel Tales

Close Calls & Great Escapes!

Close Calls Cover

Travel Tales: Close Calls & Great Escapes, part of my new Travel Tales Adventurer Series, is a collection of very scary true travel tales of coming close to serious trouble in your travels, but managing to just barely escape in time.

Fearful things can and do happen in travel, but the odds are mainly in your favor: mostly these terrifying occurrences will not happen to you, but they could.

And when and if they do, you get to experience what real, raw fear is all about. These are almost always very unsettling occasions that can potentially pop up now and again in your travels.

This travel tales collection is the place to hear about some close calls and great escapes that have unfortunately happened to others. I hope they don’t happen to you in your own travels, but if they do, I sincerely hope you manage to escape as these travelers did. And, hopefully, you’re at least all the wiser for reading about them in these very pages.
