My name is Greg Rodgers. I’ve walked down that road in China and many like it. I’ve been vagabonding around this world of ours for more than 10 years, since January 2006, finding adventures, getting into trouble, and escaping to share the story.

The feeling of complete freedom with a rucksack on your back is intoxicating.

After eight sticky years at IBM, I left the despair of my Corporate America cubicle in 2006 and never looked back. My conscious decision to accumulate life experiences and see the world has been more rewarding than ever thought possible.

I earn my keep as a writer, editor, and photographer. My daily goal is to share with others the dream of freedom, escape, and happiness found through leading a simpler life. Yes, it is possible to run off into the night and never come back!

If you wake up every day and know that there must be more to life than just chasing money or making rich people richer, you’re in the right place. My other travel sites have all that you need to get started — you’ve just got to take that first step.
