  • I was truly mislead by the books title, Spontaneous Tourism. I thought this book would explain how to get last minute vacation deals, or how to get discount airline tickets when you get that spontaneous urge to go on a trip. I didn't find anything like that. This is quite an ordinary travel book, and in fact not as good as some. The information is what even the most casual Travelers know or have read before. Nothing new or even cleverly presented. Not a bad book, but certainly not what the title inferred. Big disappointment. Plus, the book took a full 17days to arrive from the Seller I ordered from.

    There are very few people nowadays who decide to use a ship as the means of transport for a transatlantic voyage, and even fewer people who have the time and money to explore any location in real depth. Most of us are overly busy and any travel explorations are very often just short side-trips when we are away on business or maybe simply extended weekend trips to some of the famous locations. Although travel has become much easier, simpler and in many ways less expensive than it has been in the past, many people still hesitate to go and see the world. The reasons for that can be manifold, but very often they simply lay in the fear of the unknown and the relative unfamiliarity with the process. For all of those overly-busy and reluctant travelers "Spontaneous Tourism" by James C. Samans should end all of the excuses and send them happily on many adventures in the future.

    Starting with a charming short story called "Travels with Harry," written by Larry Tritten, Mr. Samans clearly explains why we should travel. Then he proceeds with extremely detailed chapters on all aspects of travel, from how to get to a certain destination, including invaluable tips on how to choose the best mode of transportation for any given trip and any given type of a traveler, to how to get ready and organized, how to plan, where to stay, what to do and where to stay. I found those first ten chapters fantastically well-researched and enormously informative.

    The next two chapters deal with domestic and international travel destinations, each of them presented on two or three pages. I liked these two chapters considerably less, mostly because I found them very uninspiring. While I realize that it would be impossible to give a comprehensive overview of any city in such a limited space, I found all of the recommendations very run-of-the-mill variety. In some cases there were some quite amusing errors as well, such as the info about the ferry to the New Orleans Zoo (no ferry runs there, just a hideously overpriced tourist boat ride - yet there is a ferry to the fantastic section of Algiers, which was not mentioned by the author). Oh, and Jackson Square is not a site of a historic brewery - that was a little bit further down... The Square itself witnessed a long line of significant historical events, yet not one of them is mentioned.

    After those two slightly disappointing chapters the book becomes very interesting and useful again, with sections on Further Reading and References, Airlines, Hotels and Lodgings, Rental Car Companies, Major Currencies of the World and Packing List.

    Overall I found "Spontaneous Tourism" very interesting and truly useful for novice to intermediate travelers. Even the seasoned travelers should be able to find a lot of useful tidbits, new ideas and interesting approaches, so I would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody who is interested in seeing the world.

    Book received free of charge.

  • Americans today are busier and more prosperous than ever before. We say we want to travel but just never get around to it, don't find the money for it, or just don't know where to begin to plan a trip.

    James Samans, a seasoned traveler himself, aims to get Americans traveling, both domestically and abroad. He establishes why travel is vital for Americans. He takes the guesswork out of basic traveling questions, getting you from the start of planning a trip all the way to the return home. By examining each piece of traveling-packing, paperwork, getting there, lodging, sights to see, food, etc.-Samans helps Americans new to traveling feel comfortable and well prepared for their trip.

    Considerable time is spent discussing how to get to the destination: airplane, train, car, bus, cruise. By exploring many options, the reader feels freer to actually choose the best fit. This is also helpful for those who may be scared to fly. Who knew there were so many other viable options? Another extremely beneficial section describes many travel destinations, both domestic and foreign, which are suitable for a first-time traveler.

    Each destination is given a brief description with highlights of places to see and the general vibe of the area. While this is certainly not the only information one would need to plan a trip, it does provide an overview and open the possibilities of many destinations to the reader.

    Overall, Spontaneous Tourism is a great resource for Americans new to traveling to feel both excited and confident to travel the world!
