Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel (英语) 平装 – 2002年12月24日
“A crucial reference for any budget wanderer.”—Time
“Vagabonding easily remains in my top-10 list of life-changing books. Why? Because one incredible trip, especially a long-term trip, can change your life forever. And Vagabonding teaches you how to travel (and think), not just for one trip, but for the rest of your life.”—Tim Ferriss, from the foreword
“The book is a meditation on the joys of hitting the road. . . . It’s also a primer for those with a case of pent-up wanderlust seeking to live the dream.”—USA Today
“I couldn’t put this book down. It’s a whole different ethic of travel. . . . [Rolf Potts’s] practical advice might just convince you to enjoy that open-ended trip of a lifetime.”—Rick Steves
“Potts wants us to wander, to explore, to embrace the unknown, and, finally, to take our own damn time about it. I think this is the most sensible book of travel-related advice ever written.”—Tim Cahill, founding editor of Outside
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.
If you are a traveler, a wannabe traveler, just dreaming to travel, thinking about traveling around to remote places on the planet, and want to see the world as a "local", meet locals, and love to be off the beaten path, this is a book for you. While it does have advice, links to sites online, it is still a very worthy read. This will inspire you to travel, maybe you can't for 6 month, but you could use some of the advice for 2 week get-away. Life is short, see the world!
Did this book has all the answers? No. No single resource ever will, but this book gives you a unique framework and perspective upon which you can solve the problems you are facing.
Read it. Love it. Put it away for awhile. Read it again.
