This Little Travel Site is Growing Up!


After years of answering questions and publishing more and more travel how-to’s, I realized in 2015 this blog isn’t really about me anymore.

Sure, I post about the mishaps (like that Amsterdam heart-attack) and the joys of life as a nomad.  And I’ll finish this entry with a recap of my 2015 travels.

But three years ago, hundreds of people started showing up to get travel advice.  Now thousands of people a month come to learn what to pack on a RTW trip and how to get free flights.  Hundreds more have started reading things like how to sleep for free when traveling and how not to get duped by travel insurance.

Since I’m just one of thousands of folks hanging out at HalftheClothes.com, it seems fair to spend a bit more time writing stuff that’s important to everyone here.

To the thousands of you who keep coming for details on how to quit your job and travel the world, I’m writing just as fast as I can.

For long time readers who want to keep up with my travels, I’ll be posting stories from time to time – at least once every six weeks.
