Help Rolf Potts make “Vagabonding” v.2 the best it can be

Most hardcore travel junkies have read Rolf Potts’s book, Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel, and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? I’ve given it a few reads at least, and gifted it countless times.

In between advice on how to negotiate time off from work for travel, adjusting to life on the road long-term, and “meditation on the joys of hitting the road for months or years at a time,” as USA Today put it, Rolf offers up resources — website links, books — to help make your journey down the vagabonding path easier and more enjoyable. Within the year, Vagabonding will be going in to a second edition, and Rolf and crew are tasked with updating the resources section. It’s a daunting job, no doubt, which is why we put the call out to readers of Rolf’s blog (full disclosure: of which I am the managing editor for) to help us find the very best resources for future vagabonders.

“Over the next 10 weeks,” I wrote on Vagablogging today, “we’re going to be posting roughly one chapter each Monday, and asking you to contribute any links or resources you feel are missing or need updating.”

So if you’d like to help make the second edition of Vagabonding the best it can be, offer up your favorite books and web links every Monday for the next 10 weeks at
