About Me


Hi!  My name is Tom.  I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio (USA).  I’ve had this crazy idea of spending a year traveling around the world.  In the summer of 2011, I began to seriously plan and commit myself to this dream.  In June of 2012, I quit my job, sold my house and got rid of almost all my stuff.  I packed a backpack, and began a life of travel.  I’m currently unemployed and homeless, traveling around this amazing rock we call Earth.  This is my blog about that journey.

  1. hi,,,,TOM
    Nice to know you at Siam Journey Guesthouse, after reading the brief introduction I am very surprised , you have done something lots people will only dream about but never dare to give it a try (I mean myself actually , even one day I don’t need to support the families , I might not sell my apartment for travel …..not know yet )
    The photos are really nice
    Hope you smooth on the way to explore the world

  2. Hi Tom,
    It’s great to meet you. I’m a huge fan of your blog and wanted to pass on something new that could be a nice fit for your niche. We are organising a tour to bring Baba (world’s greatest head massage, over 9,000,000 youtube views) to Europe and funds permitting, USA. Check him out on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geLtFCxDs40 

    Here’s our project’s page: 

    Thanks for taking the time to check us out,

  3. Hi Tom

    Unfortunately I got victim of this scam in Turkey and this stole over 3000 TL from me close to £700!! Expect in my case they spiked the drinks they gave me also!!! I only came round to what had happened when I was approaching the hotel.

    I immediately asked the hotel to contact the Police but to this day they are not giving me back any results, keep fobbing me off saying they are investigating and will contact me.

    Im back in London now, is there anything I can do? I know where the bar is, one of the girls also gave me her number, obviously she didnt reply to my texts and only phone call.
