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

The easiest, most comfortable, safest and least expensive way to see the entire world is by RV, which the author has done on every continent save Antarctica. When people learn the author and his wife have traveled the world continuously for 18 years, living in 147 countries, everyone is curious. The questions are always the same: Does it cost a lot to travel full time all over the world? How much? How are you able to navigate all those foreign countries? What's the best way to do it? Then comes, I wish I could do that, to which the author always says, Anyone can do it if they really want to. It's easy and inexpensive.
The book answers all these questions and takes the reader on a tour of Europe, Scandinavia, North Africa and the Middle East, further answering where to go, what to do and exactly how to do it. The sights include all the Seven Wonders and much more, from fantastic cities, national parks, sprawling antiquities and incredible mountains to exotic shopping, fine dining and pristine beaches. Here's how to ship your own RV all over the world or go wherever you'd like and buy an RV there, obtain insurance, deal with foreign languages, the requirements of the proper RV and how to sell it locally before moving onto the next continent. Full-time international travel is easy when you know how to deal with the necessary details from mail, inoculations, documents, weather, costs, airfare, investments and healthcare.
