HoboTraveler.com Celebrates 10 Years

I purchased the name “HoboTraveler.com” while in the Voyager Hostel in Panama City 10 years ago.

There were times, when I first traveled when:

1. I did not wear shoes for a month.
2. Asked a girlfriend, what month is was.

Times Change
There were no Blogs, newsletters were the new thing.

I thought I was hot stuff, I had been out two years, and this seemed a lifetime. I was doing interview with experienced travelers…. They had to have traveled for over one year; I now consider this just a newbie. (I needed to find a way to make money.)

Everything has change, life is simpler, easier and better, maybe one thing is missing. I miss the rooms full of travelers, all talking about their trips. I do not know where they went, but nowadays everyone is calling their friends at home, and not out and about talking.

I am happy, I lost all my friends from home from about 2000-2008 or whenever Skype.com can into being; now I have them back.

Well, do not worry, I ain’t going anywhere, I am the old man of Travel, I live here, you are in my home. I still like to travel more than I like to write or be famous. I am one of the richest Hoboes on the planet, truly is a confusion.

Go Andy Go! A pleasure to follow along on your travels. Alabama is still here.


Congratulations Andy on hobotraveler.com 10th birthday. 10 years is a long time in the internet world. I've always said that a year in the internet world is like a dog year, ie 1 dog year is 7 human years. The internet changes so fast that 1 year is like 7 in other industries. So 10 years makes you 70 years in the internet world, which makes you one of the old dogs of internet travel (and I say that in the most respectful manner).

I remember stumbling upon your site in 2000 when I was living in London. I didn't realise it had just started that year. I used to like the "never go home" logo you used to have. I was still about one year away from learning HTML and starting to make my own websites.

All the best for the next 10.
