The book (part 1) is comming soon in electronic format. Very soon hopefully.
How to Fund Your Own Travel Adventure by The Lost Photographer is an entertaining travelogue and comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to pay their way around Europe. Part 1 covers just Spain and will only be available in electronic formats. Anyone buying Part 1 will be issued with a password to access an accompanying website with ongoing, continuously updated information. The full version of the book will cover the majority of Europe and will also be available as a printed version (at a later date). The accompanying website for the full version of the book will also be supported by a members only website with discussion forums.
How to Fund Your Own Travel Adventure will hopefully stand up well enough simply as a travelogue. The book isn't just a guide for those wishing to give it a go themselves - it is a fun read regardless.
Whether you are, or would like to be a traveling artist, musician, street performer, massues, street pedlar, or offering any sort of service as an itinerant, or just looking for seasonal jobs enroute, you will find the book full of extremely useful information. The website with updated information will also be very valuable. The guide includes the following sections (many locally specific to each city):
How to sell and building your sales confidence.
Where to sell - the best pitches in each city, and how to spot a good pitch.
Applicable European and local laws.
Where and how to get professional legal help if needed.
Obtaining permission (if needed and available).
Tips for budget travelers.
Bus and train routes.
How to travel for free.
Hiking route information.
Where to stay - cheap and free options.
Where to eat - cheap and free options.
Socialising with fellow traveling workers.
Help! - I have fallen ill.
Help! - I have lost my passport, or been robbed.
Help! - I have had an accident.
Help! - I have run out of money.
Plus much more!
Ibiza was the last corner of Spain I had to research. How to Fund Your Own Travel adventure has been born out of more than Six years real experience - there is no theoretical rubbish. Hopefully, income from Part 1 will enable me to complete research for the remaining places in Europe I want to research to complete the full version. I have barely touched Italy, and never stepped foot in Portugal, or Greece. All Three countries are obviously going to be popular destinations, so it is essential I test these waters before publishing the complete version. Strange how Portugal is probably the easiest destination outside of Spain for me to reach from Granada, yet I have left it until last. I am really looking forwards to visiting and working in Porto and Lisbon - I have heard nothing but good stories about both cities.
Date of publish for Part 1 will be announced here within the comming weeks.
This blog has been a fantastic adventure that is almost over (unless it has only just begun). The World is a very big place even if it seems too small at times!
Please continue to read and follow.
