Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
08/12/2013
Aimed quite frankly at hipsters, this volume from the online travel magazine Off Track Planet offers sage advice for budget travelers who are looking for more than just a vacation. It's composed under a steadfast belief that "backpacking, with an open mind and empty bank account, is the best way to learn about the world." Brooklyn-based editors Pikovsky and Starostinetskaya divide their content into three sections: "Get Inspired," "Get Your Shit Together," and "Make Yourself Useful." They collect "oddities, traditions, fascinating events, and happenings in various destinations around the world" before providing information on practical logistics as well as "work, study and volunteer opportunities available abroad." Sections on extreme sports in foreign countries, including skydiving over the Great Barrier Reef, snowboarding in Whistler, B.C., and canyoneering in Interlaken, are geared toward those in search of boundless thrills. The sections on art and design provide terrific takes on background history, for example, on "Antoni Gaudí, Barcelona's deranged master of plaster drippy, twisted buildings the otherwise classic Spanish city blocks... into stare-worthy attractions." The food sections deal with cheap and traditional eats—often street food—to be had in places such as Argentina and Vietnam. Such chapters help to round out this trendy and visually appealing guidebook. (May)
From the Publisher

BudgetGlobetrotting.com
"The guide draws you in with it’s beautiful photography, layout, and typography, and finishes you off with its concise, to-the-point must-knows on a variety of travel topics. All the while reading it, I was inspired and wanderlusting. Mission accomplished. ...Beautiful, easy to read, informative, and hip….This is a terrific guide for those interested in traveling but not really sure where to start. …you can’t help but be inspired to book a flight after paging through these beautiful pages. I’d highly recommend this to any 18-23 year old interested in vagabonding backpacking trip overseas but unsure where to start."

TucsonCitizen.com
"a must-have guide for any young adult with an urge to see more of the world. Put another way, this is not your typical boring coffee-table guide."
