Annual Reader Survey: What Can We Do Better?

Posted: 4/12/21 | April 12th, 2021 Hello all! Just a quick post today. Once a year, I like doing a reader survey to learn what everyone thinks of the website, discover ways we can improve, find out about things you like that we’re missing, and get a sense of how you all plan your trips and travel. We didn’t do a survey last year because, well,...

NEWS: We’re Launching a New Membership Site!

Posted: 4/1/2021 | April 1st, 2021 Last year, we started a Patreon page as a way to further develop this website’s community. In conjunction with The Nomadic Network, it allowed us to share more stories and connect with readers more through (virtual) events!

Why You Should Start Booking Your Future Trips Now

Posted: 3/29/21 | March 29th, 2021 If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting over a year for this moment. That light at the end of the tunnel — where we are mostly vaccinated and can hug strangers, go to concerts and crowded bars, and travel the world again. Sure, in the past year, many parts of the world have been open to visitors and some people have...

How to Get Paid When Your Flight is Delayed

Posted: 3/27/21 | March 27th, 2021 Things don’t always go as planned on the road. Lost luggage, delayed flights, travel scams — there are tons of things that can derail your trip. While serendipity, mishaps, and surprises are part of the allure of travel, the one mishap no one likes is a delayed flight. There’s no fun in missed connections and long...

It’s Time to Be Nomadic Again!

Posted: 3/25/21 | March 25th, 2021 Slightly more than a year ago, I flew home from Paris with the desire to do one thing: stay in place. I cleared my travel schedule, signed up for dating apps, and joined numerous social clubs in Austin with two goals in mind. I wanted to: (a) find a girlfriend and (b) expand my social circle and make new friends in...

Why I Hope This Pandemic Changes Our Attitude Towards Travel

Posted: 3/22/2021 | March 22nd, 2021 Overtourism. Influencers flouting local rules for the perfect ‘gram. Ignoring the locals living in the destinations we visit as we book Airbnbs, crowd streets, behave badly, and generate waste that will stay in our destination long after we leave. There was a lot of bad travel behavior pre-COVID. Sure, there...

Even just learning a few words and phrases and deepen your travels immensely. In this guest post, Michele from The Intrepid Guide highlights the top reasons why you should invest in learning a new...

Austin’s Snowpocalypse: The Storm that Took the City Down

Posted: 2/25/2021 | February 25th, 2021 “That guy is buying six dozen eggs? And look at all that water!” I said, staring at a picture from a local grocery store on my friend’s phone. “I mean, it’s going to get cold and snow a bit, but this isn’t the apocalypse! I think this guy is going overboard.” “Right?” she said laughing, before going back to...

Oaxaca: An Even Bigger Love Story

Posted: 1/26/21 | January 26th, 2021 Have you ever arrived at a destination and just knew it’s for you? Something in the air just told you that this place is everything you dreamed it to be and you were going to be in love with it forever. I’ve felt this way only a few other times before, in Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. And I felt that way again...

Mexico: A Love Story

Posted: 1/12/21 | January 12th, 2021 Some things just aren’t meant to be. Sometimes, no matter how much you want something, the universe seems to conspire against you. While I believe you make your own fate, I do think the universe has a way of saying, “Hey, the timing isn’t right. You should rethink your plans.” So it was with my move to Mexico....
