Book review at ASJA

How to Travel for Free (or pretty damn near it!) was just reviewed in the ASJA Monthly – the magazine for members of the American Society of Journalists and Authors. In the “What’s in Store” section, book reviewer Melissa Gaskill writes:

Seale, a freelance travel writer, recognizes that there are many guides offering advice for traveling on the cheap; hers tells you how to travel not only cheaply, but free or close to it, based largely on personal experience.

The book has chapters about travel’s major aspects—trans- portation, accommodations, and sightseeing—and one on cre- ative ways to travel. Seale makes a couple of important points, such as: There is an inverse correlation between the amount of time you spend researching, planning, and taking a trip and the amount of money you’ll spend, and the longer your trip, the less expensive it becomes.

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
