Travel ebooks you can download for free

One of my favorite web tools is StumbleUpon, which allows me to randomly discover sites that suit my interests. Traveling is one of my listed interests, of course, so it was no accident that I literally “stumbled upon” the free online book “How to See the World: European Backpacking on $25 a Day or Less” by John Gregory. From the nuances of body language to practical tips on how to get cheaper airline tickets, this book covers information that new vagabonds will find useful.

Finding this free, useful resource made me want to dig deeper. What other free travel books are available online?

Another free ebook I found is “Dancing With the Bear” by Liam Guilar. This fascinating ebook tells the story of how Guilar and his companions kayaked through the Chatkal and Pskem rivers in Central Asia. As someone who loves reading about kayaking and paddling, I’ve bookmarked the site for leisurely reading this weekend.

Travel writer Mark Moxon also makes his ebooks freely available for download via his web site. His ebooks narrate travel tales from Asia, Europe, and Australia. Vagablogging writer Abha Malpani wrote a post about him back in 2007.

Since the internet provides a cheap, accessible publishing platform for travelers, it’s no surprise that we can find free resources such as the ones listed above.

Do you know of any free online books that travelers will find useful? Kindly share them with other Vagablogging readers in the comments section.
