If I could have or do any three things in the world what would they be? This is the simple question that Patrick Hamilton Walsh asked himself at the age of 16. The answer to this question would lead him to living the life of his dreams. 'The Backpacker who sold his Supercar' details, in an open and honest manner, the goals that Patrick set for himself as a 16-year-old and the mindset that he had to develop in order to achieve these goals. Upon the fulfillment of those early goals, Patrick set his sights on ever-greater goals, such as: - Travelling overland from London to Sydney - Breaking a Guinness World Record for a good cause - Owning a Porsche before age 30 - Swimming off the coast of every continent - Attending dinner with the President In this book, Patrick reveals how he achieved his goals, gives an insight into each experience and details what he plans to do in the future. The final section of the book contains a surprising twist that everyone in this rat-race world will relate to. This is a book for anyone that carries unfulfilled potential or has a dream yet to be fulfilled. Ultimately, this is a book for anyone that has the desire to do more. "The book tends to be the most informative as far as giving insight into bettering one's life ... it is Walsh's positivity and enthusiasm for life that make this format work." -The US Review of Books

There has been a phenomenal growth of backpacker tourism from the overland routes to India in the 1960s, to present-day backpacker tourism across the less developed world. As a result there has been significant economic development impacts of backpacker tourism upon local communities especially in areas with the largest concentrations of backpackers (South and South-East Asia particularly Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and India), as well as increasingly in Latin America. This volume provides a focused review of the economic development impacts of backpacker tourism in developing regions furthering knowledge on how backpacker tourism can play a crucial role in development strategies in these areas. First, it reviews the origins of the backpackers with a detailed examination of their "hippy" predecessors on the overland trail, before discussing the emergence of modern backpackers including social and cultural aspects, and how new technologies are changing their experience. It then analyses the powerful economic development impacts of backpackers on local host communities in cities and rural areas with a special focus on coastal destinations. Extensive case study material is used from backpacker destinations across Asia, Latin America and Africa. In doing so the book provides original insights into how backpacker tourism is highly significant for poverty alleviation and effective local development since it has strong linkages to the local economy, and less economic leakage than conventional tourism. Written by a leading academic in this area, this volume will be of interest to students of Tourism and Development Studies.
