    @vagabonderz Awesome pictures! I love how varied they are in terms of composition & vantage point :)

  • Katie Gard posted an update: 3 years, 9 months ago

    @vagabonderz Wise words about envy! But no worries – I’m definitely learning how to find my own happiness. :)

    And I won’t give up. I’m loving the community!

  • Katie Gard posted an update: 3 years, 9 months ago

    @vagabonderz Thanks for the add! I love your photos. I’m still trying to add pictures (Matador keeps giving me an error message). I’m envious of the life you and your wife are making for yourselves – I’m still trying to convince my husband we can do it. :)

    @vagabonderz Hi Carlo,
    Thanks for the friend invite. I am slowly getting to know the online travel community. It is an impressive little subculture.

  • Ash Duncan posted an update: 3 years, 10 months ago

    @vagabonderz Thanks for accepting! I find Matador so liberating. The articles and people involved seem to have so many commonalities with me. It’s great to find so many like-minded people in the one place. Read through some of your blogs and I must confess, I too am a page-bender! Haha.

    @vagabonderz Thanks for the welcome! There’s something pretty centering about matador. Everyone’s travel mad! And no one minds.

  • Che Zaragoza posted an update: 3 years, 11 months ago

    @vagabonderz Thank you Carlo for the welcome.
    And yes I agree, this is the perfect place to start. I am also reading Vagabonding. Really enjoyable book.

    @vagabonderz I too read Vagabond back in 2008. One of the best books I’ve ever read. Cheers to you and your endeavors mate.

    @vagabonderz Dang! What’s funnier still is that I was just outside Petrozavodsk myself… isn’t the world too big to be so small?

    Russian hospitality though, standard issue : )

    @vagabonderz Yeah- actually, on my most recent trip to Thailand, the pack weighed 7 lbs,8.6 oz!
    Blog post about it here:

    Thanks for the welcome- I look forward to contributing!
