ED BURYN, now comfortably in his 70’s, is an American legend among vagabonds and roustabouts. Artist and author, Ed is perhaps best known for Vagabonding in the USA: A Guide for Independent Travelers and Foreign Visitors. Ed is a philosopher who prefers to travel as slow and deliberate as possible.
Recently I has the honor of editing a few hours of footage shot by Pat the Digital Vagabond interviewing Ed Buryn at his California home. Here are two videos where Ed speaks on the importance of travel. Ed speaks from a place of experiential wisdom peppered with sardonic wit.
