Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vagabonding is about taking time off from your normal life—from six weeks to four months to two years—to discover and experience the world on your own terms. Veteran shoestring traveler Rolf Potts shows how anyone armed with an independent spirit can achieve the dream of extended overseas travel. Potts gives the necessary information on:

• financing your travel time

• determining your destination

• adjusting to life on the road

• working and volunteering overseas

• handling travel adversity

• re-assimilating back into ordinary life

Not just a plan of action, vagabonding is an outlook on life that emphasizes creativity, discovery, and the growth of the spirit. Visit the vagabonding communitys hub at www.vagabonding.net.

Synopsis:

A complete guide to the vagabond approach to travel espouses taking time off from one's normal routine--for weeks to years--to discover the wonders of the world for oneself, explaining how to plan and prepare for travel, simplify one's lifestyle and adapt to life on the road, handle travel adversity, and finally, reassimilate to ordinary life. Original. 15,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Rolf Potts funded his earliest vagabonding experiences by working as a landscaper and an ESL teacher. He now writes about independent travel for National Geographic Adventure, and his travel essays have appeared in Salon, Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, and Best American Travel Writing 2000, and on National Public Radio.
