Turning 40, it seemed the right time for Julie and Jason to rent out the house, break from their jobs, buy a motor home and obtain Charlie’s pet passport. What was to be a one year tour of Europe has them thinking they may remain on the road awhile longer. Charlie (their terrier) seems all [...]
Frustrated with guidebooks and website information, while in Ankara (Turkey), Mike decided to started his own informational site. It is filled with personal stuff, as a traveler and tourist, that will aid others in finding those little gems we’d probably miss on this big blue orb we call home. His posts are realistic portrayals of [...]
Earlier this year (2010), two guys from New Zealand set out on a hike. Okay, not unusual for “Kiwis”. They seem to like hiking. But, this trek is somewhat unique as it follows the path of the Templar Knights which is not your normal modern-day quest. They’ve had their ups and downs – but, the [...]
So, you make the decision to leave the Northwest (US) for employment in Sydney, Australia. A bold move. But, not bold enough for Heather and Scott Matthews. Unhappy with “city life”, they buy a van, cull down their “stuff” and hit the road. After a year of van livin’ in OZ, they are now continuing [...]
In 2009, “Drifter Vagabond” started his blog with the best intentions to update it regularly, post photographs, thoughts and observations as he travels across the world.

Armed only with his wits and his trusty bicycle, Jack is pedaling his way through uncharted territory, both personally and globally. To quote The Grateful Dead: “…what a long, strange trip it’s been.” A trip in which Jack can [...]
If you have ever thought about “Abandoning the Cube” (that cubicle which has greedily eaten up most of your waking hours), then this is the blog for you.

Once upon a time, Tony and Thomas lead sedentary lives. Thankfully, they “chucked” it all for travel and invite you to join their journeys at Contemporary Nomad. Self-described as a mixture of adventure, travel, culture and opinion – they cover all vividly.
In his 2007 interview, Wade was described as a “modern-day nomad” and “travel was his lifestyle”. Not much has changed since that discussion. He’s still the “modern-day nomad” and “travel is still his lifestyle” but these days… That lifestyle includes a family. Wade met Chaya in 2008. They married and then gave birth to their daughter, Petra, in 2009. If you think parenthood overrides seeing the world – think again!
