HASH(0x9ee903e4) out of 5 stars Leverage Colin's experience to make your decision easier Nov. 13 2011

Colin has been an inspiration to me for years and in this small book that you'll breeze through it's as if you are sitting across the table from him and he's answering your questions about how you can literally travel non-stop. From making the decision about whether or not to travel full time to how your friends and family might take this change to how to pack and prepare for your trip it's all in the book. No topic is taboo and Colin readily presents his experience and how you can avoid some mistakes too.

Even if you're not prepared to go full in to a life of non-stop globetrotting there are some great pieces of advice baked in here so that if you do decide to go on an extended trip you'll know exactly what and how to do it. I certainly enjoyed this book and will revisit my notes and bookmarks when preparing to go on my next big travel adventure.

HASH(0x9ebbc750) out of 5 stars Great Resource for Any Longterm Traveller June 18 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this before going on a three month backpacking trip around South America. I found that it contained MANY good nuggets of information. From which bank cards are best to what to pack to understanding how to cope with cultural differences, this book covers just about every topic. I also really appreciated the links to helpful sources.

I also want to say that it is organized in a way that makes it really easy to find specific information/tips you are looking for.

I will be re-reading this book before each big trip I take!

HASH(0x9f0c52f4) out of 5 stars Mixed feelings July 21 2012
By Sage - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of the author's blog and some of his other books, but I felt like this one lacked the passion and punchiness I've come to expect. Also, I didn't learn much in the way of travel tips- there's some excellent basics there, but not much that someone who's traveled a bit in third world countries wouldn't know. That said, it's quite entertaining and an interesting premise- actually traveling full time is an idea that would be inspiring to a lot of people and this book makes it all sound possible, so it's worth the read for that. Good for the price.

HASH(0x9ed3ff60) out of 5 stars Great Book Nov. 25 2011

About half way through and really enjoying it. Written in an easy to read and concise way. I'm not interested in "full time travel" but rather just some lighter version of that and this book still has lots of great insights, encouragement and thought provoking ideas.

HASH(0x9f2b884c) out of 5 stars Full of Technical Tips Jan. 3 2013
By bendman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book serves as a great motivator (with some warnings included) about becoming a location independent professional. As a web developer I found it somewhat targeted towards web developer/programmer types, but it might just do a good job of identifying with the reader. Also, those are probably the easiest professions to fit within a location independent lifestyle.

There were plenty of tips about how to prepare, what to bring, reasons for leaving, how to enjoy the travel like native rather than a vacationer, etc. It also had some good links to resources for purchasing tickets, legal advice, organizing on the move and more.

That being said, a few of the chapters read like a summary of content, and aren't meaty enough to be of much use. One subject that I was interested in but didn't find good coverage of: legal/bureaucratic ramifications of location independence. How to deal with visas, embassies, passports, legal differences in target countries, etc. It has a chapter talking about where to get legal advice, but I'd rather get some universally necessary information from the book than need to hire a lawyer.

I did however get a lot of advice on how to prepare, and some of the resources listed proved to be great.

I would recommend this to any online professionals looking to work from away from the office and live a mobile lifestyle overseas.
