About this product
- DescriptionDo you have the urge to just pack up your life, head out the door, explore the world for months or years on end, and never look back? If this sounds like you, do you kw where to begin? The thought of taking a long-term trip may sound daunting when you take a moment to consider it. Journeys of this type have numerous research topics that short-term travelers never come across when planning a vacation. When shorter trips are planned to an hourly schedule months before you even leave, the freedom, fears, challenges, and amazing moments that long-term travel brings are never realized. But when compared to the alternative of only taking one two-week vacation per year for the rest of your life, doesn't taking 26 years of vacation in a year-long trip sound amazing? Is there anything else you'd rather be doing with those 52 weeks of your time? Written by the expert world traveler's behind the popular long-term travel blog Living the Dream, The Long-Term Traveler's Guide is the definitive planning resource for all those looking to cut loose from the standard path and head out to see the world for weeks, months, or years on end. Whether you want to eat gelato in Italy, visit an elephant rescue center in Thailand, climb the Great Wall of China, go scuba diving in the Galapagos, or do it all like so many others, planning for the adventure is unlike any other form of travel. The Long-Term Traveler's Guide covers all aspects of the planning process from beginning to end to help make preparing for your trip a breeze!
