David Rich retired in his forties to become a fulltime international traveler, an occupation vastly preferable to his former professions of law professor and trial lawyer, from which he's mostly recovered. He's pursued freelance travel writing and exotic travel with his wife for sixteen years, living in 147 countries. However, with 191 countries in the United Nations (and 202 at the Olympics) they're barely halfway through the list, plugging onward as they brave blizzards, monsoons, desert heat and State Department travel advisories to visit the world's most out-of-the-way places from the Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan to the wilds of Borneo to the Harley-Davidson Rally Week in Sturgis, South Dakota. See his Website, www.mytripjournal.com/RichWorld, which has been featured on www.lonelyplanet.com. He RVed Europe, Scandinavia, Northern Africa and the Middle East for three years, Australia for over a year, New Zealand six months, South America for two years and has recently concentrated a on Africa and Asia.
RV the Worldby David Rich
See the planet by RV with minimal difficulty while enjoying the sheer audacity of exploring the world closer-up and more intimately than by any other available means. Rving the World is the best way to see 1000 places before you die, the book
RV the World illustrates how anyone can RV the entire world, all six drivable continents, and precisely how much it costs.
See the planet by RV with minimal difficulty while enjoying the sheer audacity of exploring the world closer-up and more intimately than by any other available means. Rving the World is the best way to see 1000 places before you die, the book vividly describing how to get to those 1000 places and more, seeing them in far greater depth than is available to other travelers. Compare the superficial cattle runs of tours and cruises, extremely restricted package deals and the achy breaky backpacking reserved for the very young. The only way to explore the entire world in depth is by RV, a simple extension of the kind of RVing people are used to in the States.
RV the World illustrates the simplicity of international Rving, taking the reader along on the author's three year RV expedition through all of Europe, Scandinavia, North Africa and the Middle East, describing the ins and outs of Rving all of South America, Australia and New Zealand plus vehicular travel through most of Africa and Asia during 16 years.
Rving is the only easy and cozy means of taking your home with you, sleeping in your own bed and eating favorite foods instead of dealing with hit or miss hotels and restaurants. RV the World describes how to obtain RV insurance abroad, equip and select a proper RV, sell it once the continent has been explored and move onto the next continent while avoiding sterile campgrounds. Over-night by exotic rivers, lakes, mountains and archeological sites, deal with language difficulties and obtain top notch yet inexpensive healthcare abroad. The peace and quiet of RV travel abroad allows anyone to escape feckless boring tours, pusillanimous package deals, insipid and fattening cruises and back-breaking backpacking. AND, ANYONE CAN DO IT!
