Incredible Book!! Deserves over 5 stars
After picking up Imagine a Vagabond Story, i could not put it down, from start to finish! I was amazed at how someone could be so brave to do what Grant Lingel did. His book has inspired me to do what he has, to travel and explore new things, and i will when the time is right for me, since it has been something I have always wanted to do throughout my life. This book makes you think a completely ...

If the embargo were ever to be lifted by us Yanks, Well as mentioned in the Trinidad Saga, its all way to apparant what is going to become of the warmth of the people of Cuba.

Yellowstone Treasures: The Traveler's Companion to the National Park
Granite Peak Publications
Absolutely Essential Guide for Yellowstone National Park
I just want to add my own glowing review to those that are already here. This book is one of the most helpful books out there for Yellowstone. It is like a mini-version of the Alaska Milepost book that tells you mile by mile (and kilometer) all the treasures along the way. There were so many times we stopped at sights described in the book while others drove right past hidden waterfalls and ...
The Bad Girl's Guide to the Open Road
For bad girls
All of these books are very funny. They are good to read if your in a bad mood, they will turn it right around.
Miracle in the Andes: 72 Days on the Mountain and My Long Trek Home
Through the lenses of maturity
I have always been haunted by this story, mainly because my father, a longtime aviator, told me what happened right at the time the world was shocked by the news they were alive. And now, more than 35 years after, Nando Parrado has the fantastic idea of writing his own book, whose biggest merit is exactly the naturally acquired maturity of the author. He escapes from the easy calling of ...
Traveler's Guide to Alaskan Camping: Alaska and Yukon Camping With RV or Tent (Traveler's Guide series)
Rolling Homes Press
Alaskan Camping book
This is a "must have" book if you are going to Alaska, never have been there, and are renting an RV. We used it everytime we were searching for a campground and found the reviews to be very honest and up to date. We had very positive campground experiences because of this book. We especially enjoyed camping on the beach in Seward and the Byer's Lake campground, chosen because it was one of the ...
When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler's Journal of Staying Put
LOVELY BOOK TO SHARE
THIS UNIQUE, SPLENDID LITTLE BOOK IS A GOOD ONE TO JUST LET LIE AROUND...IT LENDS ITSELF TO SPORADIC READING. IT'LL BE PICKED UP OFTEN AROUND HERE, ENJOYED BY MANY VISITORS AND SO A GOOD ADDITION TO THE "COFFEE TABLE".
Canoeing with the Cree
A simple, inspiring adventure
My, how the world changes in 80 years! This is not a book with the profundity that Sevareid was later noted for. It is a straight off account of two boys setting out on an adventure more dangerous than they realized which could easily have cost them their lives. Fool-hardy, yes. But, how remarkable that they succeeded. The book gives insight to how primitive Northern Canada and the world was ...
Travelers' Tales Thailand
Travelers' Tales Guides, 1993
Great back stories for Thailand
It's not a travel guide at all, but it is more of a peek into the Thai culture. I really enjoyed reading the stories in this book, but I hardly made a dent in it, and then left it on the first leg of my flight to Bangkok from DC. Bummer.
Sisterchicks on the Loose
Multnomah Books, 2009
Delightful travel adventure
I picked this book because I love travel. I found it to be a delightful read, and a great story of female friendships. The uplifting message is a bonus as well. Sharon and Penny take off to Finland to find Penny's long lost aunt. What an adventure they have, and you will find yourself laughing out loud at every little turn. Touching yet light. Sweet yet funny. I cannot recommend this book more. ...
America's Living History - The Early Years (A Traveler's Guide)
Red Corral Publishing
History that lives on...
The book `America's Living History' by Suzanne and Craig Sheumaker is a wonderful book for both the armchair historian as well as the traveler for whom it is designed. As someone who is very interested in the early history of America, I was thrilled to find so many things with which I was familiar, but also so many things that I never knew before. I have found that when I teach history, if I ...

Learn French In Boston
Finally truly "understand" French!
Perfect for anyone wanting to understand daily French conversations! (and even be able to speak as well). No more quizzical looks when a shop owner asks if you need assistance. No more gesturing wildly to get your point across. This book, and especially listening to Camille's CD's over and over again, will truly enhance your next trip to France.

The Family Sabbatical Handbook: The Budget Guide To Living Abroad With Your Family
The Intrepid Traveler
Very detailed, informative book
I was so happy to find this book as I was planning a sabbatical from my university to teach overseas in a developing country with my family. The book is amazingly detailed, and provides lots of great lists that I am comparing with my own lists. The discussion about the benefits about taking the kids abroad is fantastic! I really appreciate the details that the author provides, and the story of ...
Halfway to Each Other: How a Year in Italy Brought Our Family Home
true to my experience of living in Italy too!
I thought this was a lovely book that spoke deep truths even when the truth revealed how spoiled we Americans are! Marriages are as much work as raising kids and finding a place to call home...this book is a wake up call.

The Unlikely Voyage of Jack De Crow: A Mirror Odyssey from North Wales to the Black Sea
A. J. Mackinnon
Should be a classic!
Mackinnon's odyssey, traveling in an 11 foot sailing dinghy from Wales through rivers, streams, locks, canals, across the English Channel, and ultimately all the way to the Black Sea, is an unforgettable read. He's a very funny guy, and I laughed frequently as I read the book. His story is full of misadventures and mishaps, courage and determination, flexibility and improvisation, challenges and ...
The Walt Disney World Trivia Book, Volume 2: More Secrets, History & Fun Facts Behind the Magic
Louis A. Mongello
The Intrepid Traveler
A Little Piece of the Disney Magic
The Walt Disney World Trivia Book is like the friend I've always wanted who flies me down to Disney (for free!)and proceeds to take me through every park, attraction, and resort, telling me things I never knew about my favorite place. With a loyalty only a true Disney connoisseur can possess ("ever hear of some guy named 'Bugs Bunny'? Hmph. Me neither."), Lou presents his information the way I ...
Last of the Donkey Pilgrims
Wonderful Book - Funny & Entertaining Writer
I had the pleasure of meeting the author of this wonderful book several years ago at a local library. If you ever have the opportunity to see Kevin at a book signing or reading DO NOT hesitate. He did a slide show of the photo's he took while walking his way around the emerald isle and they were truly awesome. Many of vista have been lost to modern advances (high tension lines and such) since ...
A Journey of One's Own (Second Edition): Uncommon Advice for the Independent Woman Traveler
The Eighth Mountain Press
Absolutely the best!
This is probably the best book ever written for women who travel solo - absolutely fantastic. Written in 2003, it hasn't aged a day and is every bit as relevant now as then. If you were only buying a single book on how to organize your solo trip, this would be IT!
North Star over My Shoulder: A Flying Life
Simon & Schuster, 2002
He Saw It All and Honored the Profession
I have just spent about three weeks assimilating this remarkable account from a pilot I had never heard of until I bought the book. However, Buck writes with the heart and soul of a man who knows what it is like to do what he did, often under trying conditions, blazing trails and bringing people safely home. If you have been fortunate enough to have flown an airplane in your life, blessed ...
