More About the Author
National Geographic Adventure magazine said of their journey, "The Ligatos' tale is a textbook lesson in not waiting until your number comes up. The couple decided to create their own lottery jackpot, a six-year savings program that would fund their dream: a road trip to the bottom of South America, up the coast of Brazil, into a shipping container, and across the Atlantic Ocean to Africa."
Since then the Ligato have cycled around Asia, motorcycled through India, meditated in Thailand and hiked to Everest Basecamp.
When not on the road they call San Diego, California home.

Being totally non-mechanical, I was fascinated with their tales of keeping their old VW running -- but they met such wonderful characters because it, that it wouldn't have been half as much fun in a more modern cruiser!
This book is a must read for anyone who has ever dreamed of just taking off and letting life happen. A truly great read.
this is not just a book about traveling in a vw van, it is about living life rather than just existing.
If this book does not make you want to make some changes in your life after reading it, then you probably would rather watch tv than read this anyway.
Buy this and rethink everything.
Informative, fun, and inspiring!
