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:

Veteran shoestring traveler Potts shows how anyone armed with an independent, curious spirit can achieve the dream of extended overseas travel, once thought to be the sole province of students, counterculture dropouts, and the idle rich.

This slim volume on perpetual travel is equal parts practical advice and you've-only-one-life-to-live inspiration. Having already quit my job, sold my condo, and put everything else in to storage, I was already three or four chapters down the road with Potts before I'd ever heard of him or of "Vagabonding", but the true excitement and pure love that he conveys for a life of wanderlust is enough to give me all the extra confidence (a boost up and onto the horse) I needed; because indeed, I've done a great thing by pitching my whole daily routine with all its attachments in favor of the road for awhile. If well-placed in your days, this book may work the same magic on you.
