Falling for Wall Street – Have You Been Here?

It doesn’t much matter what particular -ism you subscribe to, there is just something sort of magical about Wall Street. this is especially true in the early morning hours before the hustle and shake of New York City really turns on. The neighborhood around the famous financial district has a strange sense of calm that you really wouldn’t expect to find in the financial center of the the United States.

He bought a VW bus for $100, moved into it and set out on a journey to show the world that it was possible to live life on your own terms. That journey took him from waking up under icy blankets in  the Pacific Northwest to waking up under palm tress in Southeast Asia. Three years later, his first book, Rough Living: Tips and Tales of a Vagabond was published. After diving into the Anthropology of Tourism and Electronic Anthropology at the University of Hawaii (with undeclared minors in film and surf) he hit the road again in 2008. Since that time,he's lived primarily in Morocco and Turkey, married a Moroccan girl he couchsurfed with, and become a proud father. He's been to more than 40 countries, founded a successful online travel magazine (this one!), and still doesn't have a boss. Life is good. You can also find him on Google+ and at Facebook

They can show you all the well visited sights but also show you all the hidden gems!
