The Year of Extraordinary Travel
Published in conjunction with St. Petersburg Press, THE YEAR OF EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL is a 138-page hardcover photo anthology with a splash of memoir following Becca McCoy’s experience of traveling somewhere every month for a year.
Between September 2018 and August 2019, Becca McCoy traveled to 8 states in the US and 7 other countries with 5 different travel companions and sometimes alone. THE YEAR OF EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL contains short tales and hundreds of photos celebrating the relationship-deepening, horizon-expanding, joy-inducing nature of travel, and the beauty of our diverse earth and common humanity.

What people are saying…
“For anyone who journeys along vicariously, Becca McCoy’s photo-travelogue will surely spark a pleasurable degree of wanderlust and maybe just a bit of travel-envy.”
– Tim Mason, novelist and playwright
“With a love for excellent food, nature and even the naughtier things in life, we journey along with Becca to places we wish we could go now, even if it means sleeping on a friend of a friend’s couch.”
– Victoria Jorgensen, filmmaker
