Overview

This all-encompassing travel guide features approximately 100 exciting destinations like Buenos Aires, Brazil, Columbia, Greece, and Thailand, and everything college students, grads, and those in their twenties and thirties want to know about them, including: the cities with the craziest sex shops; the best places to get a tattoo; where to check out some amazing street art; why you should try fried bugs; the best clubs to party until dawn; and much more. Broken into three parts, the first section focuses on what to do and where: food, fashion, music, sports, sex and partying, and more. The second half of the book dives into practical tips and advice on budgeting, hostels, and transportation, and the third section offers great ideas about extending your stay. Entertaining and informative, this lively guide also includes fun charts and graphs and 100 to 150 full-color photos throughout.

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

"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."

"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."

CLUE 1. Ever remember seeing ads for Waterclan? If you post there saying 'im from the quest' the leader will greet you. Search her name.
