    It's the rare trip that involves a stop at a local, Hungarian distillery; an invitation to a family dinner in southern Turkey; or a lesson in South Carolinian alligator trapping. With both a willingness to reach out to strangers and a remarkable sense of adventure, Kugel has found himself in these three and many other notable situations during his extensive travels. The former New York Times "Frugal Traveler" columnist, Kugel here outlines different ways to consider world travel beyond "best of" websites and hour-by-hour itineraries. Covering topics including the reasons why we travel, safety and risks, effective technology use, and the ethics of travel, he writes for he writes both for families with one week of vacation per year and for solo travelers with months to spend abroad. Kugel's sense of humor and varied experiences make the book an enjoyable, informative read. Whether their ideal vacation is a week on a Caribbean beach or two months motorbiking around Vietnam, readers will feel encouraged to reconsider how they approach their next trip away from home.
