Synopsis

Travel is an excuse to challenge your beliefs and increase your perspective. Telling travel stories is an excuse to discuss society, philosophy, the evolution of modern relationships, and the state of contemporary marketing. From the secluded rice terraces of Mayoyao to the expat-friendly beaches of Boracay, Come Back Frayed is a collection of stories and essays written about and from the Philippines by full-time traveler Colin Wright. The pieces in this collection connect isolated agrarian societies with those that have fallen prey to rampant consumerism, and draw a line between introverted, nonstandard lifestyles and the always-on connections that bind humanity together in the modern world. There's also some discussion about allergies, loincloths, and why cockroaches are so rage-inducing. Colin Wright is the author of the narrative nonfiction works My Exile Lifestyle and Iceland India Interstate, the essay collections Act Accordingly, Considerations, and Some Thoughts About Relationships, and numerous works of fiction, including Ordovician and the A Tale of More series. Colin moves to a new country every four months based on the votes of his readers, and writes a blog called Exile Lifestyle.
