Enjoyable reading and helpful information
on 18 November 2015
What a fantastically heart-warming book; a real pleasure to read and with plenty of honest and very helpful information. It's broken down into sections that have advice and information on: The change in lifestyle/coming away from your current situation or job and putting that into action, working abroad, travel warnings, money saving/dematerialising, traveling with children, older travelers, women & men specific traveling, travel guides, preparation, what to bring, money help, how to travel, attitude, cultural help, communication, hotel tips, etiquette, day to day living, health, open mindedness, practicality, spirituality, trying new things, improvising, volunteering... etc. All contain pages of Rolf's experience with quotes and a more in detail page on another travelers experience related to the section you're reading about. Included are lists of books and websites for help.
I really enjoyed reading this book, the language used it very fluent and a joy to read. Quotes from other writing, philosophers, travelers made it all the more appealing. There are some accounts of specific places and situation he visited to go along with the writing. It's fairly organised, but even if you don't feel it is the individual sections help target specific information you may need. It certainly made me feel a ease and provided more insight into traveling.
