I’ve Traveled With
A DANGEROUS BUSINESS
A small-town Ohio girl trying to balance a “normal” life of job, friends and family with an unquenchable lust for travel. Met Amanda at TBEX in Toronto and again for a beer in Thailand. Her articles make travel seem even more magical.
AUSSIE ON THE ROAD
Chris and his magnificent ginger beard are drinking, romancing, and teaching their way around the world trying to have a life less ordinary. I haven’t had the pleasure to meet this red-bearded fellow yet, but his articles are funny and inspirational.
BE MY TRAVEL MUSE
Kristin is a former investment banker who sold everything and bid the life she knew goodbye in favor of adventuring around the world! It was awesome to finally meet Kristen in Chiang Mai for a big Chang beer after fighting an insane rain storm.
CANDICE DOES THE WORLD
Candice Walsh is a Professional Experience Collector and full-time inventor of new job titles that don’t make much sense. After reading her blog forever, a group of us met to take on Canada on a crazy road trip from her hometown in Newfoundland.
FLORA THE EXPLORER
Flora is a travelling storyteller with a self penned obsession for the weirdness of the world. Hopefully I’ll be able to run into her one day, because she is a passionate storyteller and a traveler I admire for her desire to see places she visits through locals.
Hannah & Adam an American couple who decided the normal life was just too normal. They packed into a backpack to travel the globe. We all have hung out on multiple occasions in TBEX and Thailand and doing battle together during Songkran in Thailand!
Matt is a typical Gen-X professional who has a passion for all things travel and his site brings a unique perspective. He’s an intelligent writer whom I’ve met at TBEX and had the pleasure of slamming beers back with.
With a severe case of wanderlust, Leah lives by the motto, “Life’s too short to live with a someday mentality.” She’s a southern gal with a killer smile and a fun luxury blog. I ran into her finally at TBEX and all I can say is she’s awesome.
Look for the man with the red hair and a camera in hand. A travel blogger and YouTuber who has been globe-trotting for almost a decade. I have yet to meet him, but his photos are phenomenal and he is always creating new travel videos.
KEEP CALM AND TRAVEL
Clelia is a feisty Italian blogger and traveler with a big focus on Sardinia. She wants to show you that no matter what your age is, or your budget, or your status — you can travel and live your life on your own terms.
STOP HAVING A BORING LIFE
An account of his life after he liquidated everything to travel the world indefinitely and find a new home in his favorite places on earth. Rob is a cool cat who I was able to run into while attending TBEX, and is always posting great travel content.
Audrey is the girl who wants more stamps on her passport. She’s slowly but surely working her way around the world, usually in search of markets, street food, jungles and beaches. Her articles are in depth and extensive, and photos are great!
A hopeless travel addict and permanent nomad, Derek quit his IT job to travel the world way back in March of 2009. Derek is an awesome guy and great blogger who I have traveled with in the past, and completed the Rickshaw Run with last April!
Nellie is a professional travel writer and editor with an eye for adventure and a love for the unknown. Her travel blog has a focus on adventure travel, created to inspire others to get off the conventional trail and seek out extraordinary experiences.
ANGLO ITALIAN FOLLOW US
Dale and Franca are an Angloitalian couple who’ve travelled the world since 2012. Follow them as they travel the world and share everything we experience and learn about slow & budget travel along the way, with a huge focus on vegan travel and housesitting.
