Many dream of traveling the world, but few actually do so. If you've decided to put your money where your fantasy is and save for the trip of trips, Edward Hasbrouck is your travel guru. He's circumnavigated the world twice, and coordinates a travel agent's around-the-world department. He explains why you ought to chose (and stick to) your route in advance but needn't start and finish in the same city, and above all why you ought to take the travel plunge. He shares hard-won truths about saving money--and in Thailand or Bali $100 saved earns an extra month of freedom. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Attention, travel lovers: Hasbrouck, an "extended travel specialist," has written the handbook for world travelers. The trips Hasbrouck has in mind don't include a lot of fancy hotels and tour groups but instead focus on independent adventure and really getting to see a country and its people. His comprehensive guide includes such information as getting discounted airfares, choosing a destination, types of transportation, what to pack, sample budgets, and dealing with culture shock and coming home. An excellent index is also included. Smart travelers will make sure to have this necessary guide in their backpacks when boarding the plane, and all public libraries will benefit from its purchase.?Melisa Fiumara, North Tonawanda P.L, NY
