HASH(0x9331b8ac) étoiles sur 5 An excellent collection 3 septembre 2008
Par Xandernut - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Rolf Potts is one of the many travel writers to begin his career via the
Internet via Salon, and the book is a collection of his earliest from to his recent works from magazines and literary journals. Most of his stories are available elsewhere, so the true draw of this book is the commentaries, which add humor, insight, and occasionally share his frustrations on both the topics and people in the stories, as well as the craft of professional travel writing. The essays themselves run from the humorous ("Storming the Beach") to the painful ("Death of an Adventure Traveler"). The stories explore both sights and sounds of his wanderings and the nature of travel itself, such as the comparison of travelers versus tourists and the business of travel and people's expectations therein. Armchair wanders will love the book, and those who dream of writing about travel for a living will find the book very useful as well as entertaining.

HASH(0x9331baf8) étoiles sur 5 Highly entertaining 26 septembre 2008
Par Justin - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Rolf's other book, Vagabonding, is a must-have guide for anyone interested in travel, regardless of age, intended destination, length of trip, or particular travel philosophy. It's been like a travel bible to me, passing it on to friends and family young and old to help explain why it is I enjoy travel so much, and hoping they catch the bug too.

So it was with great interest I picked up Rolf's second book, Marco Polo Didn't Go There. First, this book is different from Vagabonding -- it's not really a practical travel guide. It's a collection of stories from Rolf's career as a travel writer. I had read many of them before, as they appeared in popular travel magazines and websites in the past, but what makes this book unique is his end notes on each story. They act as a portal into the life of a travel writer, filling in the gaps between the paragraphs, and telling the stories that didn't fit into the story.

If you have any interest in travel, becoming a travel writer yourself, or maybe even just learning how a travel writer travels and writes, pick up this book. It's funny, enlightening, and highly entertaining.

Good book. Stories about traveling off the beaten path, avoiding tourist traps and planned & canned experiences. If you have traveled alone, you'll understand this book. If you only take well planned and led tours, you'll see what you are missing.

HASH(0x9331e2d0) étoiles sur 5 An outstanding set of vivid travel stories 18 septembre 2009
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur
Format: Broché
For the past ten years author Rolf Potts has taken his travel passion to the corners of the earth. This collects his funniest and most dramatic stories, from being stranded without water in the Libyan Desert to learning about Tantric sex in an Indian ashram and investigating the 'real' Australia. An outstanding set of vivid travel stories from a world gypsy traveler makes for exceptional armchair reading recommended for any general lending library.
