A month long competition played out in venues across the United States allows you to fly into one place, and leave from another. This is called an open-jaw ticket, and gives you the chance to see a lot more of the land.

The fans who travel to America for the World Cup have to cover a great distance, at least once in the opening qualifying group. Those who have the money can fly, although they see little else of the country, while the more adventurous trickle around on Amtrak and Greyhound. A real fan of football wishes to be there for the whole month.

Nomadic Gatherings - Travels in Asia and Australia

Travel on trains and buses in Asia, then jump into cars with complete strangers in Australia and New Zealand as Michel introduces you to a collection of characters that bring Nomadic Gatherings to life.

If you can't afford to buy a copy of Nomadic Gatherings, the chapters are slowly being made available online - for free.

You may even decide that it really is worth having a hard copy in your hands; a useful read for those long bus journeys being written about, and for endless waits at ferry ports.
