One of the best ways to travel and learn about new places is to take a long-haul vacation, including but not limited to around-the-world trips. A veritable bible of world travel, The Practical Nomad, now in its third edition, contains invaluable resources on everything ranging from air travel to rail passes to volunteering abroad.
Says Hasbrouck, "the biggest mistake you could make, in my opinion, would be not to travel around the world, at least once in your life, if you have the chance." Even if we can't drop everything to troll the globe for six months, The Practical Nomad offers tips, resources, and advice sure to benefit the intrepid travelers among us.
