    The DVM 3rd World Travel Guide is a rehash of a book I wrote back in the day called ‘The Professional Adventurers Guide to Independent Travel’ that started out just as a few handwritten pages of advice for a contractor buddy that was going on leave in Southeast Asia.

    Oddly those 3 pages became popular and more folks started asking me to add more info (I left my email on the original 3 pages so eventually people I didn’t even know started asking me to add stuff).

    Eventually I sat down and wrote a (poorly written) guide to 3rd World Travel (at that time mostly focused on Southeast Asia) and threw it up on a website for all to download. Over a couple of years it was only downloaded a couple of thousand times and eventually I forgot to renew the website hosting.

    But even more oddly people actually remembered I wrote it and started to ask me for a copy (Facebook is a weird place). So I have rewritten and revised the original Guide (minus the guides to the Philippines, Thailand and Cambodia because those sections are way outdated now) and posted it – fo free for you folks.

    I have also added some articles I wrote about 3rd World Survival and some other shit. Please feel free to add your experience to the comments – and if it is good stuff in the tradition of this guide I will add it to the main chapters.

    Some good stuff.

    But I always advise people against carrying weapons of any type unless they want to end up being sweaty Abdul’s prison bitch for the next 15 years.

    I agree – but I just threw that info in more as a “its interesting to read” and “ya never know if that info may be useful someday”

    But glad you like it – if you want to add any info throw it in the comments for whatever chapter you want to add to

    Thanks Bro
