In 1962, a young New Zealander left home on a 12-week, 15-country tour of Europe which he financed by taking along a group of travellers. John Anderson could never have imagined that this trip would be the genesis of Contiki Holidays, one of international travel’s most enduring brands.
Only Two Seats Left! tells the incredible tale of how one man turned a simple idea (and 25 pounds) into a thriving business: to date, over two million young people have undertaken the Contiki Challenge.
Though I have not yet read this book, it is reportedly laden with entrepeneurial insights, and the story should inspire anyone whose dreams have largely gone unrealized due to fear of the unknown.
