Have you ever just wanted to pack your bag, lace up your boots and walk off into the unknown? That’s what Cheryl Strayed did and wrote about in her travel memoir Wild. Based on a true story and the #1 New York Times best-seller, Wild tells the story of how Cheryl decided to embark on a thousand mile wilderness hike after years of reckless behavior and the destruction of her marriage.
Haunted by memories of her mother and with absolutely no hiking experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles along the Pacific Crest Trail solo. The book reveals her challenges (bears!) and her triumphs (she makes it!) as she forges ahead on a journey that tests, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
Wild is the perfect book to get you yearning to travel more and show you that we humans really are incredible and can do anything if we set our minds to it. If you’re dreaming of a wilderness adventure, a digital detox or searching for the inner strength to follow your dreams read Wild or see the movie, it’s inspiring.
So I’m thrilled that I’ve got five double movie passes and five copies of the book to give away to readers. Find out more how to win below!
I haven’t seen the movie yet because it’s not out yet but I can’t wait to see it when it’s released on January 22nd. Check out the trailer below. (If you’re reading this by email please visit the blog post here to watch see the trailer.)
