ROAD LIFE – An Inspirational Guide to Living and Travelling on Four Wheels
By Sebastian Antonio Santabarbara
Frances Lincoln £16.99 | Hardback
What’s the appeal of a life on the road, with everything you need contained on four wheels? Tried it yourself and felt inadequate and underprepared? Or feel daunted by converting a vehicle yourself? The campers in this book can show you how to roll up in style.
From expert craftsmen who’ve converted entire buses from scratch, to low-key explorers who’ve perfected the art of budget travel. There are solo travellers living and working on the road, and families who sold up everything for a life of touring – for these aficionados, camping is pure pleasure, a way to connect with nature, an antidote to modern life. And, unlike most of us, they know how to do it properly.
Seasoned traveller and expert on life-on-the-move, Sebastian Antonio Santabarbara interviews each contributor to bring out their unique and inspirational approach to life and travel, their most memorable experiences (and challenges) and the tips and gadgets they couldn’t live without.
The book also provides advice so readers can achieve the ‘road life’ themselves and suggests worldwide destinations that provide a similar setting, giving the inspiration and tools for people to plan their next trip.
*The book features a diverse and international mix of people of differing ages from places including the UK, Portugal, Bulgaria, USA, Sweden, Japan, Czech Republic, Germany and Italy. The featured road-lifers are made up of different genders and sexualities; some with pets, some with families, some are couples, and some are single.
