Globetrotter Dogma: 100 Canons for Escaping the Rat Race and Exploring the World
New World Library, 2002 - 169 Seiten
After circling the globe five times in the last 20 years, Bruce Northam has gathered hard-won nuggets of travel wisdom into 100 enlightening recommendations for making the most of seeing the world. In a book shaped and styled like a passport to fit easily into a backpack, the author advises, for example, to take a media sabbatical (if you haven t traveled widely, maybe there s an umbilical cord attached to your TV convincing you that the world is an unfriendly place. It s not!), to go where the locals go (cops and bartenders know their terrain better than the local chamber of commerce) and to undertake exhausting itineraries with family (no one will have energy left to recycle family debates). Employing a mix of travel lore, humor, and anecdotes, Northam entertains, advises, and inspires readers to hit the road. 20 black-and-white illustrations are included."
