What did you like best about How to Travel the World for Free? What did you like least?
The concept of the book is great, the adventures he goes on are interesting. However, a lot of this would be dangerous if a woman were to do it (unfortuantely). Because of this, I didn't find the book very useful. There's no way I'd hitchhike with strangers or walk alone in certain countries at night.

Any additional comments?
I found the cultural references and descriptions in this book interesting. What turned me off was the author's "Uber" Western attitude. Why would you agree to take a multicultural trip around the world, and then critique and complain about all the cultures you visit?! Deal, Dude! It's free! The bus-driver in Chile wouldn't keep driving that way if it weren't somewhat successful?! The author should have relaxed into his experiences a little more and focused on the learning aspect. He also took an overly professorial tone when he described Black jack, and Niagara Falls, in detail--like the educated people who read these types of books need those things VERY carefully described. I read Mr. Wigge's next book in the series , about bartering (actually before this one), and it is better.
