23FEB09 New edition of "The Practical Nomad"

[News from Edward Hasbrouck, The Practical Nomad]

The new 4th edition of "The Practical Nomad: How to Travel Around the World" is now available in bookstores and online, ahead of schedule and in time for me to sign copies this Thursday in Washington, DC.

I'm excited about the new edition and about the extent to which I've been able to improve and update it to reflect the latest changes in the world, in travel, and of course in the (better than ever) 100-page travel resource guide. If you read and liked one of the previous editions of "The Practical Nomad", please tell your friends about the new edition.

For more information about the book click HERE

I'm currently travelling around the world myself on a year-long sabbatical. But as part of my ongoing work as a consultant to the Identity Project <http://www.papersplease.org>, I'll be coming back from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Washington, DC, this week to testify at a public hearing on Thursday on the TSA's latest proposals for surveillance, control, and monitoring of travellers, which would require us not only to have government-issued travel documents but to get permission from the government before boarding each flight (even domestic flights in the USA), and subject us to government-compelled search and interrogation by unregulated, private, commercial third parties who would be "free" to retain, use, publish, sell, rent, or disclose the records of our travels.

If you're in the Washington area, I encourage you to come to the hearing yourself and tell the TSA in person what you think of their plans:

This will probably be my only trip back to the USA from my sabbatical this year, and your only chance in the USA this year to get me to sign copies of the new 4th edition of "The Practical Nomad: How to Travel Around the World". I won't have copies of my books with me, so please buy them in advance and bring them to the hearing if you would like them signed

Please contact me if you are interested in organizing an event in one of the places I'll be passing through between now and next July:

If you are a book reviewer or interested in arranging an interview by phone or e-mail, please contact me or the Avalon Travel Publishing publicity department, +1-510-595-3664, <atppublicity@avalonpub.com>.

In the coming weeks and months, I'll be posting more in my blog and in my e-mail newsletter about some of the practical lessons for other travellers of my own current trip, such as how I arranged to manage finances (safely and securely) while travelling, how to stay in touch while travelling, what gear and gadgets I did (and didn't) bring with me, and my experiences of living, volunteering, studying a foreign language, and continuing to do freelance and consulting work in the USA while travelling abroad. You can sign up for my free e-mail newsletter on any page of my Web site.

Thanks for all the support and feedback I've gotten from my readers over the years. Wherever *you're* travelling, have a wonderful trip!

Best wishes from Buenos Aires,

Edward Hasbrouck
