The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.
Kristine Arndt lives the ‘Beat Generation’ life style (think Jack Kerouac and Albert Camus) and is loving every minute of it. From singing for the President of Kazakhstan to herding cattle in Guyana, she has not let adventure pass her by in any way.

“Tall tales and tasty tidbits served with a dash of sarcasm…” is how Raymond Walsh describes his site. The tales may be tall but also true. The tasty tidbits are tantalizing (to say the least) and extremely useful. Having traveled the world over under his previous employment positions, he now travels on top of it [...]

Armed with her trusty camera, she quit her job and began a vagabonding lifestyle which definitely has been suiting her well. Her photographs and written thoughts are a testament to her dedication to this alternative path.
What do you do when you’ve had a bad year? As Simon Fenton states, “I decided to do what any normal person would: cross the Sahara, by any means possible.” And, ‘by any means possible’, he was serious. But, you’ll have to find out for yourself if a donkey and a camel were really modes [...]

Michael cuts through the proverbial bullshit of travel and the nomadic lifestyle. Please realize you have been warned [...]
Wade Shepard of Vagabond Journey has just unleashed Vagabond Explorer Magazine. Yes, he used flattery in his request but also gave me several very good reasons why I should become a contributor, reviewing travel blogs I consider worthy of recognition. My real life job is reading travel blogs daily and there are an amazing number out there just ripe for the choosing. But, the magazine is so much more and has wonderful contributors. Definitely check it out! You won’t be disappointed. This is a magazine for every type of traveler – from armchair to nomad.
