    An excellent well balanced look at modern travel — why we do it, how we do it, should we do it, and given the yin and yang of technology and globalization, the way to perhaps do it better. Seth Kugel comes off as both a wee bit jaded and very pragmatic in his approach to travel. Highly recommended, especially the first part on his philosophy of travel and the later chapter on technology and travel.

    I won a Goodreads giveaway copy of this book - Go me! I tend to just rate and not write reviews, so I'll do my best.

    I wanted this book because we've been trying to travel more with our kids before they graduate. I'm a planner, and as a family we lean more towards independent and quirky travel rather than group tours and standard American hotel brands. This book not only scratched the travel bug itch, but gave a lot of good advice and covered some thought provoking topics. I got some really saav

    I wanted this book because we've been trying to travel more with our kids before they graduate. I'm a planner, and as a family we lean more towards independent and quirky travel rather than group tours and standard American hotel brands. This book not only scratched the travel bug itch, but gave a lot of good advice and covered some thought provoking topics. I got some really saavy travel research tips with regards to OTA's, and I was freshly inspired to think outside the "must see!" travel box and just let a trip unfold sometimes.

    As I said in my update reviews as I was reading it, I knew I could trust him by his love of tostones, and his use of paper maps rather than google maps to navigate a city warmed this old geography major's heart.

    Right in my wheelhouse. Kugel wrote the frugal traveler column for the New York Times. This is about how to have spontaneous adventures while traveling. I loved it.

    One of the best times of my life was backpacking around Eastern Turkey and Northern Iraq. I didn't have a hard schedule. I mostly wandered around meeting a lot of people. At one point I was dropped off in Erbil, Iraq, seven miles from my destination. I could see the citidal high above the city and just kept walking towards that. I stu

    One of the best times of my life was backpacking around Eastern Turkey and Northern Iraq. I didn't have a hard schedule. I mostly wandered around meeting a lot of people. At one point I was dropped off in Erbil, Iraq, seven miles from my destination. I could see the citidal high above the city and just kept walking towards that. I stumbled on the public library and spent an afternoon talking to the director of the library. I want to have another adventure like that.

    Anyways, that was 11 years ago. I think of it often. I highly recommend this book.

    A good read, written with humor and cleverness. There's a lot here that made me think about how and why I travel, and it will probably spur me to do some things differently in the future.

    I received this book from Goodreads.

    Let me just save everyone some time.

    is almost all lecture and no fun- at least in the beginning.

    If you want to read Seth Kugel drone on and on about how his way of travel is better than anyone else's, read the book cover to cover.

    But if you're just in it for the useful tips, skip to the last few chapters.
