This small entourage (weighing less than 45 pounds in total) comes with me as I wander around the world, sometimes quickly, but mostly slowly. In 2011 alone, I traversed 13 countries and over 45,360 miles. Sounds pretty expensive, huh?

Check out these untouched JPEG images straight from the camera: Instant vintage photographs! Is that cool or what?

Exploring Norway’s Fjords by Car and Boat Stung by the cost of things ($20 burgers from a street shack! $13-a-gallon gas!), we decided to arm ourselves with groceries. How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel I’m confused. I’m simply confused as to how it’s possible that I have so far failed to properly explain how I’ve managed to travel/live/work abroad nonstop for 12 years straight (and counting). The questions are still pouring in every single day: How do you do it? How is it possible to travel for so long? Where does the money come from?
