Daily Travel Writings by Andy Graham
Andy Graham Mission for Travel - Hobotraveler.com Sites
I want to enjoy life, and everything that life offers.
I plan on wandering slowly around the whole world, with no plan on when and where I will be. I will collect topics, ideas, experiences, and friends, that will teach me what is important to travelers.
Always taking the time to enjoy my adventure, I will not allow time to rule, but will change the route or go slower if necessary to enjoy my discoveries.
I will make a "Hobo home on the internet" where all travelers, for free, can find information about traveling anywhere in the world; it will provide a forum for travelers to submit information.
There are many reasons why people travel and I encounter different types of travelers daily, with a big world of differences. HoboTraveler.com and other Hobo sites are your home for travel. I invite you!
This site is not for sale, it is for people to find some Hobo truth.

I am not "Crazy," I am a World Citizen, Independent of Work Location .
I am an endlessly curious person, and have the self-esteem to handle the world on the world's terms. I do not need a home, car, or daily routine to be happy. I can find reasonably priced places to live at lighting speed because of my travel skills, and live within my means in any city on the planet.
How Did Andy Graham Start to Travel?
I became homeless after a six-week Christmas trip to Acapulco, Mexico. While lying in a hammock I realized I never wanted to go back to my old life. Confused and excited, I returned to the USA, sold all my possessions and took off to visit new friends in other countries. What I didn't know at the time was that travel is an addiction: after six months, I knew I was hooked, and after two years, it was hopeless. 14 years later, I am still perpetually wandering the planet.

I travel the world 365 days per year, "Chronicling the real world" with photos, videos and daily missives about my journey on my Free Daily Travel Blog:
I write free travel reports, stories, photos, videos, and travel tips for readers, explaining the geopolitical and cultural differences of countries from the eyes of an Indiana Farm Boy. I funds my travel by revenue from Google Adsense.
Through HoboTraveler.com, I have Travel Blogged 8000 times, written 211 Newsletters, and uploaded over 20,000 photos and 2800 videos to the Internet.
I am homeless, but I have made a "Hobo Home on the Road," and live a "Life Less Normal," one of the few perpetual travelers on Planet Earth. Many people go live in other countries; however, few earn enough money to continuously travel. My rule is: "If you stay in one city longer than three months, you live there, you have stopped traveling."

Why Andy Lee Graham is an "Expert Traveler."
1. He has only been robbed twice in 14 years, and only for petty things. The first time was by an Italian man on the ferry from Koh Samui to the mainland; the man saw Andy Graham put 40 USD in the top of a bag, and he stole it. The second time, he was pickpocketed on the subway in Madrid; the man got his USA passport and nothing else. If you poll long-term travelers you will find they have had many things stolen.
2. Andy Graham has never had a knife or gun pulled on him; even though he has been to some of the most dangerous locations on the planet, his situational awareness is so keen, he has never been affronted with a knife or gun.
(Well, close - someone robbed me with a broken bottle in 2011 in Luperon, Dominican Republic.)
3. Andy Graham has lived in 800-1400 Hotel rooms, and can always find a 10 USD room in any country.
HoboHideOut.com is a new Hotel site, recently launched with rooms in 6.5 million cities.
I will make a video about missing people.
