This book provides a practical guide to traveling the world as a student. If you are planning on taking a break year or doing a study abroad/work abroad program, this book provides you with all the tools you need. It serves as a universal guide for traveling around the world on a low budget.

The mainstream travel industry is geared toward short term vacations for young couples and rich retirees. The most expensive hotels, resorts, and restaurants are advertised everywhere. Even with the best deals that you get on these luxuries, it is still an expensive proposition in the long term.

The focus of this book is on how to travel the world in a way that keeps you healthy, gets you a better cultural experience, and doesn't break your budget. You can learn how to travel cheaply around the globe, eat healthy, exercise, and live in affordable accommodations. It helps you live like the locals and truly understand the culture of the place you are staying in. This book is not only for students; it can be used by anyone looking at affordable means to sustain long term travel.

Impressive

The book does give me a new appreciation for traveling though I think the confidence level of the person is the biggest issue to traveling (not just money). In any case it was a good book to listen to and was a perfect primer for the student thinking of traveling.

Very well written book geared to the longer term budget or backpacker traveler. Contains some excellent resources and tips. The author is obviously very experienced and effectively conveys that experience to the listener.
