Around the World in 10 Years free pdf First we thought we could go around the world in four years. Then we were convinced that we could do it in seven. When we got to the sixth year of travel, we felt that 10 was a good round number. In June 2010 we celebrated 10 years living on the road, and there's still half the planet left to explore... ..".I'll never forget that Monday when I put the barrel of a gun to my head and fired until I was out of bullets, without stopping to think of what I was doing so I wouldn't have a chance to change my mind. It was my resignation to a future which I already knew, a farewell to a secure job, an adieu to a brilliant career in advertising, the microcosm where I had lived for the last twelve long years. It was ten minutes after ten in the morning and my last words were, more or less 'keep the corpse, I'm leaving.' My body collapsed and I walked out the door..." Around the World in 10 Years: The Book of Independence is the story of a dream, of how one day two normal people decided to declare their independence and give up that double life that makes us do on the weekends what we would like to do Monday through Friday. Around the World in 10 Years: The Book of Independence, is the story of Babel's back country, a journey through some of the world's worst roads with a 4 x 4 truck transformed into a house on wheels. There is no bathroom, no shower, no sponsors, no hotels, no phone and no Auto Club. "The road will provide" is a statement of optimistic intent. Well, optimistic optimism. There are encounters with the Turkish police, conversations with the heart of Kurdistan, nights shared with traditional Islam, desolate desert tracks, tricks for traveling with little money and many little known facts that dispel prejudices and uncover an exciting world, much closer than you ever thought possible. First and foremost, this is a story of people. This overland autobiography will leave you laughing aloud, inspiring you to get out and experience another part of the world -one that is well outside your comfort level. If learning Spanish is on your bucket list, then be sure to jot down these books on that list as well.
