Happy new year! What a better way to start the year inspired to travel than to share with you some great travel stories. This month, we’ve interviewed Dave Dean, writer of the travel blog What’s Dave Doing? and founder of Too Many Adapters, a technical resource for travelers.
A native of New Zealand, Dave’s been on the road for about two years now. Like many of you dreamers, and many of our featured bloggers, he had a dead-end office job he didn’t believe in. Don’t worry, though, you’re not in for the same ol’ story – Dave’s got a great, yet gritty sense of humor, and I get the sense he’s more than a little bad-ass. He’ll tell you the truth, and give you a kick in the bum to make what you’ve been day-dreaming about come true. He calls his way-of-life ‘ongoing slow budget travel,’ a term I can get a grip on. And you know what? It’s something you can do, too.
“What’s Dave Doing? is a mix of information, inspiration and motivation for those looking to hit the road themselves. It’s a personal story, hopefully told in a way that can help others achieve their own travel dreams…what I’d most like to communicate on the blog is that long term travel is far more affordable and achievable than most people believe – and far more valuable as well. Contrary to popular belief, stepping out of the rat race for a while to explore new countries and cultures could well be one of the best and most important decisions you ever make. Mass media is very good at telling us that we are all supposed to want and do exactly the same things in life, so I think it’s important to present a somewhat different view on my little corner of the internet.”
