Looking for new Field Reporters!

The Vagabonding Field Reports series has been going strong! We’ve seen dispatches from all over the world! Such places as Guyana, Tokyo, Sydney, St. Vincent, Croatia, Dubai, Cape Town, Guatemala, Thailand, and New Orleans. Columbia, Champagne, Peru, Ireland, La Paz, Bosnia, and the Galapagos. And with some stunning photographs to boot! The series is even better than we hoped it would be.

Whether it’s traveling with children, starting off on a first adventure, or learning how to make a living with a guitar, we’re showing that anyone can break the mold.

Our currently traveling vagabonders share their current experiences out and about in the world. Through their Field Reports, you’ll find out what the cost of living is in Argentina, the weirdest thing seen in Paris, or what a typical day in Thailand might be like.

Are you on a long term trip right now, traveling through new countries? Living out of hostels for a few weeks, and then volunteering on a farm for a few more? We’d love to hear from you! We are always on the lookout for new Field Reporters.

Drop us a line at casestudies@vagabonding.net and tell us a little about yourself.

    Hello!

    I’m Derek and my blog is entitled ‘Hike Psych’. This name reflects the psychological adventure accompanying the more corporeal hike my body will be doing along the Appalachian Trail beginning this March. I credit Rolf’s book ‘Vagabonding’ for getting me out of temp work in Orlando, Florida and into international travel. I have lived and worked in Seoul as a voice actor and have traveled all over Asia, India, and Australia.

    I think I could serve as a different sort of field reporter. Someone covering ‘The Art of Long-Term Woodland Travel’, if you will. Every day on foot, learning about nature and the surrounding landscape, demonstrating survival skills, preparing packed/foraged food, and meeting other hikers and forming bonds. I would contribute posts revealing the personal transformations I undergo as I strive to achieve cultivation of travel skills through simplicity.

    Plus, it would be an honor to ‘complete the circle’ and be able to contribute back to the book and the man that helped me to become and experience everything I always hoped I could.

    Hi Rolf,
    I’m not traveling right now, but will keep you in mind. My husband and I travel parts of every year. Our trip in 2012 was on the Holland America line from Argentina around Cape Horn and up the west side of South America to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. I have stories and photo of that on my blog http://sailorstales.wordpress.com/ and many that are not on there. But our longest trip was eight years around the world, 34,000 miles on a 43-foot catarmaran, Pacific Bliss. I have many stories I could submit about that circumnavigation.

    Hi Rolf,
    I’ve been traveling for decades both for work and for personal experiences. Actually am in Kuwait right now, will be in the USA in a few days and then will be in Indonesia (again) for the second half of February. Traveling is literally “all I do” however, I prefer my personal travels for surfing and exploration over the work related travels. Let me know how I can contribute.

  5. Bret @ Green Global Travel Says:

    Hi Rolf,
    My partner Mary Gabbett and I run the ecotourism blog Green Global Travel, and we specialize in finding off-the-beaten path outdoor adventures centered around nature and wildlife.

    Our recent adventures have included digging for 2000-year-old artifacts on a private island in Panama, exploring the remote Caribbean island of Dominica, visiting the little-known Nature Reserves of Jordan, getting face-to-face with polar bears in the Canadian Arctic, and flying in a military plane to Antarctica.

    I’m a veteran journalist with 20 years of experience, and our work has earned recognition from World Wildlife Fund, International Galapagos Tour Operators Association, Sustainable Travel International and National Geographic. We’d love to work with you guys and share the wonders of ecotourism with your readers. Let us know if/when/how we can work together.
