Vagobond New Years Predictions for 2012

Vagobond Predictions 2012Okay…I freely admit it. My predictions for 2011 were off by quite a bit…although I did predict the Arab Spring and the continuation of both the Economic crisis and the Emo style…



Here are my ten predictions for 2012:

1) A candidate for President will be wounded in the USA
2) Kim Jong Un will open North Korea to China and India
3) Gold will collapse and then rebound breaking all records
4) Israel will go to war in full force- and get stomped on
5) A modern ‘prophet’ will arise in India and become a world sensation
6) Hollywood will continue to complain about piracy while continuing to make movies that no one wants to pay to see even once.
7) The internet will awaken on August 23,2012
8) Everything we think we know will be proven wrong.
9) Barack Obama will not be re-elected and will lose to a 3rd party dark horse candidate
10) The cost of air travel will quadruple by the end of 2012.

On a personal note, Douchebags, Fags and Hags will break all records for Amazon Kindle sales and be optioned for a feature film.

Finally, on a sad note – the big death trifecta of the year will take place in early March and be Kim Kardashian, Bruce Jenner and Tiger Woods. Rest in Peace. Of course, last year I was 0 for 3 on this one, so you never know.

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
