A good, practical book, sprinkled throughout with appropriate and inspiring quotes from notable historic and current-day travelers (aka vagabonders). It works well as a sit down read, or as a resource for travel tips and advice. It is also a book that can redefine personal values. “On the road, you learn to improvise your days, take a second look at everything you see, and not obsess over your schedule.” i.e. slow down and see the World you are in.
What I got from this book: A new way of viewing travel. My view was that I would love to travel to places that I have heard about that sound intriguingly different from home. Now, I think it will be more about learning from the people I may meet, and keeping moving in the world. Travel, as a natural expression of the desire for personal growth and greater understanding.
Recommend: Highly recommend.
