    I finished reading Vagabonding for the second time. The first time I read it was about four years ago, when I first started to experience serious wanderlust. It was inspiring and echoed the way I felt about traveling, but it wasn?t applicable yet. One Day, I mused, I will go on a lon...

    I hit the road for 8 months--7 countries, 4 continents--because of this book. College behind me, an ex-fiance, and a wad of cash in the bank (invested since I was a child)--that was when I discovered this book. I boarded the plane 5 months later. I carried it with me the whole t...

    Rolf Potts? Vagabonding was recommended to me by a friend who apparently thinks I: a) Need to get out of the house (and the city/state/country) b) Enjoy books that heavily rely on quoting Walt Whitman?s ?Song of the Open Road? It?s not a bad book, certainly not the typ...

    Rolf Potts gives a ton of good resources for how to travel long-term. This is not for the person who wants to take a week vacation in Cabo, but for someone who wants to hang out in a country or two or however many for a long time -- several weeks to several years. It's inspiring and he...

    I found this book Strictly OK and I fail to understand the hype this book has generated so much so that it comes under "Top 10 books travel books". Given that the author is well-travelled, there could have been a lot of meaningful things to be shared with the readers from his personal...

    This is a short read that I intend to read over and over. Basically, it explains that you don't have to be in college or retired to experience long-distance travel. Hiking the Appalachian Trail or spending a year in Thailand is completely do-able for even 30 or 40-somethings. It's a re...

    XXXIII How happy is the little stone That rambles in the road alone, And does n?t care about careers, And exigencies never fears; Whose coat of elemental brown A passing universe put on; And independent as the sun, Associates or glows alone, Fulfilling absolute de...

    Not a fast moving one but an amazing book. I think I will go back and read parts of it again. There are lots of things to like about the book. First of all it provides a different view of life. I wish I had something like this in my twenties. I have a friend who spends about 6 mont...
