Norm Schriever Travel Advice

Each year an estimated 60 million US citizens travel abroad on vacations, everything from cruises to desert expeditions, for business, or to study or volunteer.

Unfortunately, many of them will fall prey to petty thefts, robberies, or even more serious crimes.

An expat who currently lives in Costa Rica, Norm Schriever has recently  published a travel memoir called 'Pushups in the Prayer Room', describing the year he spent backpacking around the world.

One of the most popular chapters in the book, ‘Wolf Tickets’, outlines all the scams, and hustles, he himself experienced during his travels.

"Unfortunately I found out about most of them the hard way!" he says.

In fact, this particular chapter has proven to be one of the most popular in the book and readers say it's both funny and fascinating, but very practical because it outlines the nuts and bolts of criminal techniques you may encounter in foreign countries and specific tips how to best ensure your safety.

Norm Schriever is a humorist, adventurer, enemy of the comfort zone, and author who lives in Nicaragua with a surfboard and a laptop.  His recent book outlined above, 'Pushups in the Prayer Room', is a wild, irreverent, and hilarious memoir about a year he backpacked around the world.
