Escape the Cubicle and Travel the World

You don’t have to be rich to travel indefinitely! I quit my job in 2006 and have been vagabonding around the world since. This is my story of living and working along the way.

Hello, I’m Greg Rodgers

Read more about why I began vagabonding.

Welcome!

This is a story of life change, big adventures, and finding happiness.

I learned the hard way that the American Dream isn’t my dream at all. Waiting until we retire to do the things we love seems like a bad idea. I believe days should be used to build happiness, relationships, and life experience, not someone else’s fortune. So, I quit making wealthy people wealthier and made myself rich with the blessings of experience and freedom.

If you feel like there should be more to life, you aren’t alone. I’m here to help you find a new life of travel and wonder. But in the end, you’re the one who will have to hoist the black flag and go get a few scars. Until then, enjoy some tales of a vagabonding life lived fully and deliberately.

I will see you on the road.
