Living a Life of Travel and Adventure

I have been a full-time digital nomad since 2006. Now, I help others escape to travel and work remotely.

Just random personal musings that don’t belong on my vagabonding travel blog.

A Life of Travel

Setting up for remote work and going to live and work in exciting (often tropical) locations is the best decision I have made. If you’re craving self-growth and an unconventional life of adventure, I urge you to escape!

I’m here to help others experience the same transformation I did through extensive world travel. Click below to be taken to my Science of Escape site where backpackers and digital nomads can see tips, mindset, and how to escape the Rat Race.


Escape the Rat Race

Why Vagabonding Travel?

I believe that long-term, independent travel is a powerful tool for self-growth and happiness. Anyone can benefit from extensive world travel — and it can be cheaper than staying at home!

Living and working remotely as a digital nomad isn’t for everyone. But if you feel as if the default “American Dream” and a conventional life aren’t for you, consider making an escape.



About Me

I’m Greg Rodgers from Lexington, Kentucky.

After some time in the US Army and eight years working as a network engineer for IBM, I knew that I needed more adventure in my life. I exited my corporate cubicle in 2005 and began a new life of vagabonding as a travel writer and technical consultant.

Today, I write, edit, freelance, and help others to escape and chase their adventure dreams. Click below to visit my long-running blog (since 2006):

A Few Sample Adventures

I have been trekking and climbing in the Himalayas alone. In 2016, I narrowly survived a blizzard.

I ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain! I learned a life lesson and cracked a rib (that wasn’t part of the lesson).

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller

I trained as a Forward Observer in the U.S. Army. I enjoy survival challenges and have been tested in tough conditions all over the world.
