How to Travel on a MICRO BUDGET and still THRIVE

how to travel

So lately people have been asking me, “How are you able to travel the world? You must have inherited a bunch of money” which I translate as “You’re just some privileged dude doing what other people can’t.”

This is, of course, laughable. I currently travel to countless interesting places at $800 a month. This means that when I make more than this per month, I am traveling and saving money. Who would have thought?

leave america

As a preface, understand that America has some of the best scenery and nicest smaller towns in the world. It also provides maybe the most amount of geographic options within a single country. Finally, it’s the greatest place I can think of to do business. All that being said, as a world traveler I find […]

Where to Go in Croatia When You’re a Nomad (Days 31-60)

Where to go in Croatia

I heard a fair share of uncertainty before I left to Croatia for my next month-long destination, namely that there is no where to go in Croatia in winter; as the whole country will be frozen over like a year-old popsicle. So, was this true?

You last heard from me in Switzerland, at the Lifestyle Design conference. On a whim, I had decided to make my next stop Istanbul, the largest city in the region (and in Turkey). There are plenty of things to do in Istanbul for eccentric, nomadic backpackers like myself.

Zurich and the Lifestyle Design Convention (Days 9-11)

lifestyle design

After leaving London, I caught a flight out of the distant Luton airport to get to Zurich. From the window of my plane, I saw a cascade of snow-covered mountains open the gates into Switzerland. Landing in Zurich, I realized the city was filled with old-world architecture and a lot of fancy clock-towers. As I […]

Travelogue Days 7-8: The Real British Experience, and Marmite

marmite

Part of the idea of being a digital nomad is to “not be a tourist”. As such, it’s often best to find the most authentic experiences that you can. This is rarely accomplished by hanging out in a hotel, nor even a hostel (which tends to be a more international versus local experience).

What’s it like to walk from the edge of Shepherd’s Bush on London’s far West end, all the way to Waterloo St around Southwark? The answer is very hard on the old feet. This personally invented London walking tour concluded with going back up the edge of the Thames, across Westminster bridge and finally to […]

The first day of international travel is almost always a rough patch for me. Without fail, I get sick. This time was no exception, as I finally caught the cold going around (the one that lasts days and makes you feel super sluggish). Couple this with very little sleep, the sudden timezone change, and a […]
