Around The World And Back

Deciding to travel around the world is one of the most liberating things you can do. Upon deciding to take the big leap into the world, I remember feeling like my wings were open and my heart was truly free. I was freshly single, in need of a career change, and just generally looking to reignite a spark inside my stagnant feeling soul. There was so much hope and wonder in stepping out. After securing a remote job, I booked a ticket to Belgrade, Serbia and what I like to call “Beyond”. Initial...

The Books That Samuel Beckett Read and Really Liked (1941-1956)

Samuel Beckett, Pic, 1" by Roger Pic. Via Wikimedia Commons Clad in a black turtleneck and with a shock of white hair, Samuel Beckett was a gaunt, gloomy high priest of modernism. After the 1955 premiere of Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot (watch him stage a performance here), Kenneth Tynan quipped, ''It has no plot, no climax, no denouement; no beginning, no middle and no end.'' From there, Beckett’s work only got more austere, bleak and despairing. His 1969 play Breath, for instance,...

How Much it Really Costs to Travel Around the World Full Time

Perhaps the question I’m asked most often as a digital nomad is, “How much does it cost to travel full time?” It’s a question that, after 11 and a half years of traveling around the world, I am eminently qualified to answer, but up to this point have avoided. I began my travel-blogging journey in early 2007 when I purchased a six-month around the world flight through the Star Alliance program. At this point, I still had a house I was trying to sell and was saddled with... The post How Much it Re...

Original solo female travelers

Today’s solo female travel movement — the subject of so many articles, books, and blogs, the inspiration for so many trips and lifestyles — can trace its roots in America back to two people: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland. Bly and Bisland were New York-based reporters in the late 1880s, at a time when American women had still not been granted the right to vote. Women in the field of journalism in this era had a particularly difficult time — most publications would not hire them unless it was...

Crossing the uncrossable: A tally of those who’ve driven the Darien Gap

Image via Google Maps. Driving around the world ain’t easy. Visas, funding, language barriers, supply management, and keeping the vehicle running all require resourcefulness and resilience. But even the hardiest of round-the-world drivers tend to stay away from the Darien Gap, leaving just a handful of expeditions that have driven from Central America to South America. Take your pick of adventurers who’ve set out to drive every hemisphere and check their route. Some, like the Paris-to-New-York...

Vintage isochrone maps show 19th-century travel times

In the late 19th century, travel times became a thing of fascination as modes of transportation improved by leaps and bounds (e.g., Around the World in 80 Days, published in 1873). Great thinkers of the day like Francis Galton even devised isochrone maps, which showed how long it would take to get from a central point to other points of interest. (more…)

Crowdfunding campaign aims to restore round-the-world Jeep, send it to finish the trip

Photos courtesy Restore Jeep on Facebook. Just a mile or so. Despite driving 56,000 miles down two continents and up two others in the same Jeep, a single ferry trip negated Loren Upton’s dream of driving the entire route over land. Nearly 30 years later, Upton’s family has started raising funds to restore that Jeep and send him to Israel to achieve his goal. “Restoring this jeep would mean the world to a man who spent most of his life chasing his dream,” Laurence Upton, Loren’s nephew, wrote ...

Traveling Wide-eyed Around the World

Is it still something special to travel all the way around the world? Oldies like me might not think so since “back in the day” there weren’t 10,000 bloggers doing just that and writing about it, posting selfies every day on Instagram. You didn’t hear about jaunts to all the seven wonders by private jet. You had to call someone on the phone to work out a round-the-world airline ticket and they sent you paper.
