Getting Vagabonding or Marco Polo as stocking-stuffers


It’s once again winter holiday season, which means it’s time to tout my books as stocking stuffers for the travel lovers on your Christmas list.

Vagabonding makes a great holiday gift for:

  • College or high school students nearing graduation.
  • Twenty- and thirtysomethings who don’t like their jobs, are currently between jobs, or are considering a sabbatical from work.
  • Friends and family members who don’t quite “get” the gift-giver’s urge to travel.
  • Anyone who dreams of (or has talked about) long-term travel, but thinks they’re too poor, busy, disorganized, afraid, uninformed, or old/young to actually do it.


And of course my newest book, Marco Polo Didn’t Go There, is not just an entertaining and engrossing read for the armchair traveler; its “commentary track” makes it an offbeat travel-writing textbook for students and fans of the genre.

Both books should be available through your local bookstore — and for online ordering you can the follow the links I’ve set up here:

I do have a limited number of signed copies available, but since I’ll be away from home for the next couple weeks this will be a last-minute undertaking.

So if you don’t mind waiting for the signed copies until, like, the week after Christmas, send an email to books [at] rolfpotts [dot] com to get ordering details.
