Travel Adventures With Philanthropist Mindset (Travel & Gadget Giveaway)

Travel Stories Book and Tugo Cup Holder Giveaway

Erin Michelson traveled to countries that tourist would not go to, some travelers might. Traveling through some of the lesser known parts of South America, Africa, and Middle East, Erin describes living, economic, social and other conditions in these areas. And how there are folks in each part of this world doing a small part to help their local communities by building communities, empowering groups, and providing education.
While she is on a mission to contribute a bit to the underlying issues, the book overall opens and places in front of you civilizations that could possibly benefit from some assistance from developing countries to improve some of the standards of living. Moreover, most of the organizations visited and promoted within the stores is related to women empowerment, which is a very strong point for the author.
The starting premise of the book is how unprepared Erin was when she started out on her journeys. She went into it head first without much back up nor essential travel gadgets. As she states here:
"I would become a world nomad. I would travel the world for two years and explore to my heart's content. ... Living life in the now"
Though I suspect she might have had some type of computer and definitely a smartphone with her. She mentions communicating with family back home via phone and e-mail and getting Internet access cards at some of the locations.
Update: from Erin - "And yes, I traveled with a laptop, iPhone, Flip (until it died), SLR camera, and point-and-shoot camera – all with adapters, chargers, etc. Pretty the-heavy actually."
