I am very curious about you. Thousands of visitors come to Vagobond each day and the truth is, I’ve been wondering about you for a while.
Who are you? Where have you been? Why did you go? Why do you travel?
I really want to know. The readers who I’ve met personally or had contact with via the internet are invariably an interesting bunch of travelers. There was the Australian woman I met in Istanbul who was telling me about how excited she was to be going to Bulgaria. I mentioned that I had been there and it turned out she already knew (but she didn’t know it was me!) She and her sister were traveling through the Balkans, Turkey and the Middle East to celebrate her 60th birthday and they were doing an amazing amount of trekking, cultural exchange, and even some couch surfing. I hope when I’m 60 I have that much vim and vigor.
I met my friend Mike through Vagobond and we discovered that we actually had couch surfed with some of the same people in the United States and Canada. The world really is small. Rob and Vicky retired from South Africa and bought a sailboat which they have now lived on for nearly six years while sailing all over the world. Melissa Ruttanai contacted me through the site and has since become a great friend and a regular contributer as she and her husband Neil travel all over the world. And the stories go on and on….now, I want to know about you. What’s your story?
As I mentioned last Friday, my focus is shifting from travel to family for a while and while I’ll still be writing, editing, and contributing to Vagobond, the focus of this site is changing. I would really like it to focus on you, your travels, your favorite places, and your tales. If you’d like to contribute a guest post, contact me to get our writer guidelines.
If writing a feature seems too much, just take a second to comment below and introduce yourself. I really do want to know you….
