Get Paid to Travel
By Elizabeth A. Ginns — November 2003
Want to travel to exotic locales in luxury and get paid to do it? Then check out K.P. Davis’ new book The Yachtie Bible, which she says is for “would-be adventurers who dream of seeing the world, but don’t know how to do it.” She should know: She’s crewed everything from dive boats to megayachts and sailed the waters of the world.
The Yachtie Bible provides everything you need to know to get a foot in the door: a complete list of international crew-placement agencies, culinary schools, and crew-training facilities; knot tying skills; a comprehensive glossary of sailing/boating terms; and more.
It’s available directly from the publisher and from bookstores for $14.95; an electronic version is available on the publisher’s Web site for $11.95.
