Great book for people looking to travel. Is a good how-to book for the independent traveller.

Picked this book up based on a recommendation from Tim Ferriss. Read in Zurich during our travels there. Definitely a worthwhile read as it reinforces solid values for both travelling and life.

Makes me want to sell everything, quit my job and start wandering. A very dangerous book if at all dis-satisfied with your life.

Loved this book! Super easy read but filled with lots of inspiration for those who are trying to incorporate travel into their lives in a long term and meaningful way. The book came earlier than expected in perfect condition. I was very happy with this purchase!

Vagabonding provided me with the inspiration to get back out on the road, with a world of opportunity to see new places and take part in different cultures. It got me moving - literally. Can't really pay a better compliment than that.

Anyone who has ever thought about travelling, this book will make you go! Anyone who has ever been travelling, this book will make you want to go again and anyone who is travelling whilst reading this, this book will make you that bit more adventurous when ordering food in a cafe where a squat toilet is another eating area! It's definitely a case of, if he can do it then so can I!
Of course if your not a travelling type then the book will mean as much to you as a tin of baked beans to a kipper, but for those who yearn for life as one of the wandering nomads of this world, this book will seem like the travel bible in as much as it suggests a life less ordinary!
This book is about working to live and not living to work!

Potts, a Contributing Writer to National Geographic Traveler offers his insights and personal philosophy of world travel. The ultimate inspiration for just quiting it all and venturing out on the road. But also loaded with practical travel tips for survival. Potts surprisingly manages to steer clear of politics in a very political world. Though one strong suspects that he's a hardcore libertarian individualist. He's very ecumenical. He takes the best of world's religions and effectively uses selected spiritual passages to encourage the reader towards discovering the deeper meanings of planet-wide citizenry. 5 Stars plus!
Cover design is appealing and fits the adventure seeking subject matter like a glove.

Rolf definitely knows his stuff.
Unlike other travel guides that have hundreds and hundreds of unnecessary pages that you'll never read, Rolf sticks right to the point and tells you what you want to know right away.
I thought I knew every backpacker travel website out there until I bought this book. In it I found a few great sites.
It's short enough to read in a few sittings yet you'll definitely dog-ear and highlight the hell out of it, especially as you get closer to your trip.
Well worth the read.

This book is essentially about the thought process behind taking time off from your regular life to discover and experience the world on your own terms. If you've been around the world a few times, you'll find it puts many of your fuzzy warm thoughts and ideals into words. If you haven't, it'll probably make you wonder why you haven't taken off already.
People who like to plan and be prepared should treat this as a companion to more nuts-and-bolts guides. Others may find this plenty since travel is all an adventure anyway. It depends on your personality and comfort with the unknown. The rarely expressed aspect of Potts' book, however, is the acknowledgement that both work and travel are admirable and that one complements the other. To travel, you must also be productive sometimes. But to be productive, you also have to continually learn and see other points of view. Traveling abroad on more than a one-week vacation makes this possible. An entertaining and inspiring read.
