Welcome to Reinvented World

I’ve developed a strange obsession with voyages around the world. Ever since I stumbled across Who Needs a Road? three years ago, I’ve been compelled by stories of expeditions — by car, boat, horse-drawn cart, bicycle — that set out to circumnavigate the world.

I can’t say what it is about this that entrances me so, but I could happily spend all my waking hours reading tales of tire changes in the jungles of Burma, of border crossings into Turkey, and of arranging for the transport of horses across the Pacific.

It would seem that the logical conclusion of this obsession would be to actually set out to do it myself, and that is, in fact, a secret plan that I hold in the far back reaches of my mind.

In the meantime, I’ve decided to start this very-focussed little weblog to share my passion with others, with hopes that I will reach into the community of round-the-world groupies and share resources, pointers and ideas.

So while on the main weblog you will read tales of my petty everyday life, here you will read only of loft world-circling books, resources, websites and more.

Have you read eithe of Jim Rogers books, i.e. Investment Biker or Adventure Capitalist? Both excellent and both about traveling both around the world and all over the world.

5 Star recommendation from yours truly.

I’ve had Jim Rogers’ first book on my iPod, waiting to listen to, for the last three months. I just need a long car trip to accommodate this.

There’s a not bad single handed circumnavigation by an ex Apple computer coder.
It is an online book:

Thanks for your other listings. I have ordered one which no library in my state possesses and put a couple of others on hold from the library system. Life with on line library listings is sweet, no?

Didn’t know about the Apple book, but Rogers books are great, and I have traded E-Mail with him which is also a great deal of fun.

Go to www.jimrogers.com and he has all his pictures and video up too!
