The Dark Zone of Lower Manhattan after super-storm Sandy. Flying cross-country into Boston during the Boston Marathon Bombings. Heartbreak and hilarity in Hawaii. Adventure in Iceland. And 13,000 miles of stories in between.

Big Apple, Black Sand and the Midnight Sun is a collection of 15 essays written by author Dave Ursillo as he journeyed across 13,000 miles in pursuit of a meaningful life.

From New York City’s East Village to the beaches of Hawaii and the mystical landscapes of Iceland, nine-time author Dave Ursillo invites you across continents and time zones to discover what it means to make life's journey your greatest reward.

Part One of this book begins in the blistering heat of a New York City summer where themes of space, energy and personal identity are explored in the world's foremost concrete jungle. Confronted by challenges, enticed by experiences and emboldened by chance encounters, the Big Apple offers heart-stirring lessons and powerful reminders.

In Part Two, a longing for space and fresh energy are discovered across the beaches of Hawaii where, for five weeks, author Dave Ursillo and friend Jacob live in oceanfront cabins and island dive bars. Themes of love, heartbreak, friendship and human-to-human connection emanate.

In Part Three, you arrive in the mystical landscape of Iceland where the allure of adventure and globe-trotting travel is second-guessed by self-doubt before the sight of a ticking clock provides a powerful reminder: we don't have all the time in the world to live the lives that we desire, so we best start living them now.

Big Apple, Black Sand and the Midnight Sun is more than a snapshot into the "nomadic" lifestyle of a location-independent writer and creative entrepreneur. This book tells tales of real-life adventure, moments of heartache and profound doubts about living the high ideals that one strives to embody.

Through moments of joy, stories of friendship, tales of heartache and even national tragedies, Big Apple, Black Sand and the Midnight Sun is the perfect read to inspire lovers of travel and adventure, but especially those who feel called to discover purpose and meaning in one's life, every day.

Beyond all else, Big Apple, Black Sand and the Midnight Sun hopes to encourage you to embark upon on a journey of truth and authentic living of your own, whether traveling abroad or in your own backyard.

What does it mean to live a life that’s true to your purpose? Could adventure, travel and meeting new people make your life’s journey your greatest reward?

Join author Dave Ursillo for this true tale of adventure and the pursuit of happiness in Big Apple, Black Sand and the Midnight Sun!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Raw, human, and vulnerable glimpse into a world-traveling writer's soul!!! 2. September 2014
Von Lisa - Veröffentlicht auf
Dave strikes a chord within every nomadic adventuring spirit's soul with this collection of essays and stories. I enjoyed experiencing his travels, and the range of his emotions during his travels as I devoured each story. From the depths of New York City during Superstorm Sandy, to the volcanoes of Hawaii, to the farthest reaches of Iceland, Dave takes you along with him and gives you a glimpse of what it truly feels like to be raw, human, and vulnerable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating, inspiring and comforting 1. September 2014
Von Annemie Janssens - Veröffentlicht auf
In Big Apple, Black Sand and Midnight Sun Dave Ursillo embarks on a quest to see if the journey really is the greatest reward. This book is both a travel guide to real life places as well as a travel guide to your own soul. Captivatingly he tells the tales of his experiences in such a fashion that you're no longer just reading words, but living them, you become part of the story and part of him. Along the way the stories reveal the journey of his soul. His experiences not only open his eyes to the world, but about himself as well. For people like me, in frequent battle with the meaningfulness of my own journey and -in extension- with my true self, and an aspiring writer as well as aspiring to travel more, this book is both inspiring and comforting. Is the journey the greatest reward? I invite you to find out for yourself, and this book might be a good starting point. :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you've ever doubted the online success stories-- read this! 26. August 2014
Von Jeanie Witcraft Shiau - Veröffentlicht auf
Very few online entrepreneurs, digital nomads, or business owners will confess to their near failures with as much emotional depth as Dave.

This is the real stuff of life, the literary wearing of another's skin.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a literary legend in the making 25. August 2014
Von Gemma Stone - Veröffentlicht auf
Dave transforms introspection into fodder for our reflection in Big Apple, Black Sand and The Midnight Sun. His writing is philosophical, poetic and profoundly real.

Often when I read literary legends who have passed on, I wish I could time travel -- to spend an afternoon walking in the woods with Thoreau, to share a pot of tea with Maya or to sit across from Dickinson as she scratches out a poem. Dave Ursillo creates the same longing within me. Thankfully, no time travel is necessary.

I devoured this book. I suggest you do too.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspiring and thoughtful- great read! 26. Oktober 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
This book is an insightful and vulnerable look into how one man followed through on the question of his purpose here; a question we've all considered. This book will challenge you to rethink the path your on and the self-limitations holding you back from the path meant for you. Dave's stumbling blocks will bring to mind the shortfalls you've faced, and he shows that there can be no growth without them. He teaches the reader to look inward at what brings you happiness, what gives you a sense of purpose; and how to align that with the life you live. He shows that it is possible; and for me, knowing that is half the battle.

Big Apple, Black Sand, and the Midnight Sun will excite you, it will make you laugh, and you'll be grateful for every bit of soul-searching it incites. I walked away from this book with my gears turning, and it's is a must read for anyone who is looking for a life with a little more intention, a little more purpose, a little more you.
