Globetrotter Dogma: 100 Canons for Escaping the Rat Race and Exploring the World

Cover
New World Library, 08.02.2011 - 172 Seiten
In Globetrotter Dogma, travel writer Bruce Northam entertains, educates, and motivates readers to hit the road through an idiosyncratic mix of travel lore, humor, shock, story, and practical advice. Employing a rambling résumé that touches two-thirds of the planet, Northam shares wisdom from his far-flung adventures:drifting with Burma's nomadic sea gypsies; walking coast-to-coast across northern England with Dad; shepherding in Morocco; pogo-sticking with Bulgarian gypsies, just to name a few. This timeless, illustrated compendium of roving bliss provides 100 reasons to keep exploring our wild and ever-changing world.
