I’ve been on the road for most of the last 15 years. And like most travellers, I started out carrying too much stuff, and eventually learned to whittle it down.
And the lighter I travel, the more I want to make sure that the few things I do carry work really well.
I’m the guy who will spend days trying out plug adapters in order to find the lightest, most useful one to take on the road.
It’s madness, but there is at least a bit of method to it.
I want the adventures to be good ones; I’m happy to be come across an impromptu street Brazilian dance party and less happy to waste a night in a Brazilian bus station at 5am because my credit card was rejected.
So this site is about the practical stuff for really good, simple travel — or permanent, slow nomadism. I’m happy to be joined here by a few more writers and researchers who think likewise. We hope the info will help you on your wanderings as well.
