Check out travelvice.com. Start at the beginning, and keep going until you’re bored. If you’re like me and the people I’ve passed this URL on to, you’ll get a long way. Essentially, it’s a guy with a healthy sense of self that has managed to cover some impressive ground in the past couple of years. I’ll skip over the criticisms (of which there may be a number) and give him perhaps the best compliment I could – he’s really quite honest. If you know anyone who is seriously entertaining dreams of going off grid and traveling for a few years, send this URL to them (esp. if they’re a bit idealistic about it).
