Most of the emails I get about me tend to focus on a relatively few questions. After all, great minds think a like and my readers are all great. So before you shoot me an e-mail see if your question is answered below. If not, feel free to send me a message:
Do you have a home?
No, the closest thing I have to a home is my parent’s house which I use as my mailing address.
Do you stay at your parents?
When I am in Boston (where I grew up), I do.
Where is all your stuff?
All the stuff I own fits into my backpack. I travel light!
How do you make money?
I make all my income from this website and a few other travel websites I have. You can read more details about it in this blog post.
What did you do before you traveled?
Before I left, I worked as a hospital administrator in a lovely cubicle.
How did you afford your original trip?
I used all the money I had saved from 3 years of working at a hospital.
Did you ever work overseas?
Yes, I taught English in Thailand and Taiwan.
Do you need a travel assistant?
No, I already have one but thanks for the offer!
Can I travel with you?
If we are in the same place at the same time, sure!
How do you deal with relationships on the road?
Love on the road is pretty hard to maintain. I wrote about it here.
How can I build a website like yours?
If you are interested in building a website, I would take a look at my book on the subject.
Will you do this forever?
I don’t know. Forever is a long time. For now, I am having fun and will keep doing living this lifestyle.
I really want to travel but everyone tells me I’m crazy. Should I just quit school/work/etc and go travel the world?
I don’t know. As I don’t know you personally, it’s hard to give you such personal advice. Only know you what is best for you. You just need to take a leap of faith and have confidence in yourself to know what is good for you. I know you probably want some wise words but I feel uncomfortable giving strangers life changing advice. All I can say is that you can use my blogs and life as an example to make the decision that will make you the happiest.
What should I pack?
You can find a suggested packing list in this post.
