Almost Intrepid – Now in Dubai

Almost Intrepid is available in your city





This book sums up my travels as a single Indian woman backpacker. It is also about persistence and determination to follow a dream. It is about learning and letting go, about creating my own experience.

It is about travel – those glorious sunrises on mountaintops, the warmth of strangers, the taste of fried tarantulas… it is about learning to adapt. It is about you and me and every traveler’s dream.

    Congratulation and keep moving . . . .

    Through “Almost Intrepid”, Anjaly Thomas shows that it’s not important to have fat pockets to travel. Heck, it’s not even important to have a ticket, much less know where your destination is! Once bitten by the mad bug we like to call travelling, getting out and away is all that matters. 😀

    Fraught with adventure, machete-wielding kids and fried tarantulas, “Almost Intrepid” is a must read for anyone who prefers the couch over the great outdoors!

    Truly an inspiring read. 🙂

  5. The title of Anjaly’s debut book – Almost Intrepid – is rather misleading. For she is completely sans fear. Something readers will discover as they vicariously climb a blizzard-bound Mt Kilimanjaro with her, chomp on a tarantula, stare down a Komodo dragon, even. Anecdotal, informative, and narrated with an underlying sense of humour, the book is bound to keep you riveted to the end. As a solo traveller myself, I can say with some certainty that Almost Intrepid will catalyse many an armchair traveller into action.

  6. Hey that’s great news…
    Please have a book signing/ reading… would love to be there…
    Lots of luck 🙂

  7. Anjaly is a good writer, a better human being and an awesome friend. It goes without saying that the last two attributes make her a better writer. A great read for armchair travelers like me.

  8. I got it though a year back , awesome experience of Anju, a must read book for travel lovers, all best wishes for the ones behind it’s publication and waiting for next one. Cheers, manoj ambattu.

  10. Hey Anjaly,
    I am truly amazed at your exploits. I am a wandering musician / filmmaker & I dare say I can imagine the fun 🙂 You are what every one wants to be. Go on, leave your footprints everywhere & bring back experiences / memories so well articulated !!! Good luck & May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks. Nishant
