Morocco to Cairo: No Baggage Challenge Update

Rolf’s latest travel project is the No Baggage Challenge — a journey that will take him around the world without using a single piece of luggage. Every few days, we’ll be updating Vagabonding with a recap of the latest to keep you up to date on the adventure.

After time in Chefchaouen and Fes, Rolf headed to Egypt to embrace his inner tourist at Giza — including one camel ride from the most spectacularly persuasive and devious tout Rolf has ever met in all his years of travel.

Trip stats:

Days on road: 18
Miles traveled: 11,340
Flights: 4
Trains: 3
Bags: 0

“My approach to exploring Fes was an old travel strategy I like to call “Walk Until the Day Becomes Interesting”: Instead of starting out with a list of goals or attractions for a given destination, I opt instead to find an intriguing neighborhood and wander around until something catches my eye. In this way, my instincts become my guidebook — and it can be fun to see what happens (good and bad).” –Rolf on In Fes: Walk until the day becomes interesting

Our next update will find Rolf in South Africa. To follow the journey in real-time, check out the No Baggage Challenge blog or follow along on Twitter. And enter this week’s reader challenge, and post a picture of exploring your own town. The favorite entry will win Scottevest gear, a BootsnAll Moleskine journal, and Rolf’s book Marco Polo Didn’t Go There!
