Two years ago today I started blogging at BohemianTraveler.com. This would start a new phase of traveling for me. Previous to this point, I traveled and wandered this world, stopping to visit friends in remote countries, volunteering from time to time when presented with exciting opportunities, and fulfilling English teaching contracts when I ran out of money or wanted to prolong my stay in individual places.
During my University studies I visited Russia a few times and after joined the US Peace Corps in Uzbekistan for two years. After that I traveled some more, throughout Europe and Asia. I certainly wasn’t aimlessly wandering, but I didn’t have an exact purpose to my travels besides the general curiosity that has been the driving force of traveling throughout my life.
When I began blogging, I had a distinct purpose in traveling. I now had an outlet to share my experiences, inspiring others to do the same: whether that was an extended backpacking trip, a career break, working abroad for a year or two, or learning a new language, skill, or sport abroad.
I had previously been accumulating travel experiences for over a decade, but what good were they if I couldn’t communicate them to others?
Some readers are craving to set out for their first-ever extended travels. Bohemian Traveler is for you. There are others that live a similar nomadic lifestyle as me, experiencing the world’s cultures as they try to make a living. I write for you, too. And still there are others who live a conventional lifestyle, traveling occasionally, and just want Bohemian Traveler to bring them photos, stories, and videos of what lies beyond. Bohemian Traveler is also for you.
In the past year, since BohemianTraveler.com turned 1 year old, I have reported from 12 different countries. I’ve also maintained my online magazine-format GoMad Nomad Travel Mag and started a new website (for children and adults with a good sense of humor) TravelingKiwis.com
My 3 most popular posts from the past year:
- Photo from the Road: Jeonju Architecture
- What I packed: 3 Months in Southeast Asia
- The Springs of Saratoga
Since founding the website, BohemianTraveler.com has gained a wide following. Join us!
