As with most ‘wanderers’, Sam Kynman-Cole has traversed certain parts of the world. From Asia to Europe, the US, Canada and a few others, he’s been playing Squash. No. Really. He likes playing Squash. He also likes driving across country and doing road trips. No matter where he goes, it definitely is his ‘playground’!
Thom lives by one very simple motto: “Go Play Outside!” and this he does for most of each year. You’ll find him driving the back roads to destinations unknown in search of adventure and inspiration. He continues to find both as he heads down the blacktop to somewhere new. Come along for a ride – [...]
By the title, you can tell what was Dave Conroy’s previous profession. Tired and suffering ‘burn-out’, he began his transformation into to a round-the-world traveler – on a bicycle. Though he has encountered several difficulties along the route, Dave is still on the road of discovery in more ways than one.
With double Bachelor of Arts degrees and a TEFL certificate in hand, Roni Weiss has ventured far afield from his native state of Washington. Between teaching gigs, he makes a point to travel the surrounding regions, has visited 70 countries and is not even close to being finished. He’s also delivered pizzas – maybe he’s [...]

She and her husband, destination lists in hand, are [...]
Setting personal goals is something many of us do – Simi has been no different. About 10 years ago, she decided to cover 30 countries by the time she turned 30 years of age. She’s almost there. Sleeping (well, sort of) with baby alligators, participating in volunteer projects and contracting Dengue Fever have not crimped [...]
Traci Suppa and her family may live in a ‘small’ town (no Starbucks coffee shop) but that does not stop them from thinking BIG. BIG as in road trips and the attractions found off those all-too-often-traveled beaten paths. Have you been to the “World’s Largest Dairy Store” or seen the “World’s Second Largest Garden Gnome”?

Nick was a paramedic and Lianna, a travel agent. They both left their careers in Canada behind, crammed a bunch of necessary stuff into backpacks and ventured off to Asia for eight months. Guess what, whether together or separately, they haven’t stopped traveling yet. (One question… where is the toilet?)
Gibbering Madness: Snapshots of a Bizarre Life is a very interesting site to be sure. There, Alex weaves his web of real life adventures. The entries are written in true “mystery novelist” style and Alex will have you wondering if he’s been “channeling” Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon) or Herman Melville (Moby Dick).
