Adam Costa, Darcie Connell

'The past six weeks have been incredible: we've eaten frogs, drunk beer on the street with locals in Vietnam, ridden a motorcycle through rice fields, explored the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat, and scuba dived the crystal clear waters off several tropical islands. The next six months will be just as interesting and just as much fun.' As incredible as this trip has been for Adam and Darcie, the most incredible part is that they haven't spent a penny on it. In fact, they have actually been making money. This will continue for the rest of their travels, for as long as they want. Adam and Darcie have written this book with the explicit intention of changing your life so that - when you've learnt their strategies -you, too, can start living the life you've always wanted. Adam and Darcie's websites - which they refer to as streamsA" throughout the book - are the reason they are able to live the way they do. They bring in more passive income each month than they spend, which results in copious amounts of free time and a never-ending stream of income to travel with.
