Rolf Potts Virtual Book Tour – Win Free Book

Marco PoloThanks to everyone who submitted a question! Read the final interview: Rolf Potts Answers Your Travel Questions

Independent travel guru Rolf Potts just released his newest book, Marco Polo Didn’t Go There: Stories and Revelations from One Decade as a Postmodern Travel Writer.

Rolf has been a long-time friend of BootsnAll, and his first book, Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel is a must-read for any serious traveler.

To celebrate the release of Rolf’s new book, we’re hosting a virtual book tour stop on BootsnAll this Wednesday, September 17, and we’re giving away 10 copies! Simply submit a question for Rolf in the comment section of this post by this Wednesday. He’ll pick 10 to answer, and the winners receive a free copy of Marco Polo Didn’t Go There.

According to Rolf, the new book is a collection of “the boldest, funniest, and most revealing journeys from my first 10 years as a travel writer — from crashing the set of a Leonardo DiCaprio movie in Thailand to learning the secrets of Tantric sex in a dubious Indian ashram.” Sounds like a can’t-miss to us, especially because each chapter is sure to be filled with Rolf’s signature offbeat and insightful commentary on the world of independent travel.

For those of you that are familiar with Rolf’s work, we’re sure that you’ve got lots of great questions just itching for an answer. For everyone else, this is an awesome opportunity to get expert advice on anything from the business of travel writing and blogging, to the art of long-term wandering. Remember to leave your question as a comment to this post by Wednesday, September 17.

When you’re done here, check out Rolf’s blog, Vagablogging.
