The Toughest Part of Travel is Deciding to Go When asked how can I afford to travel so much, I feel like retorting with: how can you afford your rent? To keep a dog? To have children? To smoke? When I travel, I have no rent to pay, no dog to feed, no kids to look after or cigarette companies to support, so 100% of the money I have can go on travel. Keeping to a budget of $15 a day is fairly easy if you're CouchSurfing (free), eating street food ($2 a meal) and travelling on the chicken bus ($10 per 100 miles). That's just $5500 a year -- less than a typical British cigarette smoker will spend on ciggies over the same period and much, much less than the rent on a flat in London or the cost of bringing up children....

  1. Hmmm. It doesn’t work. It is not for free. Amazon still wants some money.

    Is the offer restricted to the UK?

    Nice idea, but no so great if you’re in China, where both fb and twitter are blocked :(

  7. I’m really enjoying reading Moods of Future Joys – inspiring me to further travels. I’ll pay for Mr. H’s work as that is part of the respect for the work of the author, traveller and adventurer that he is owed.

  11. Very happy to purchase the book for Kindle – at £2 it was a bargain.

    ‘There are other Rivers’ is beautifully written and a compulsive read – I could not put it down and would recommend it to anyone as a book about travelling through life.

    This is not a book about a specific place, full of occasional descriptions of the interesting or unusual; this is a description of the journey, the ordinary and the thinking behind it.

    Brilliant!
