Yup, you read that right. My last name really is Newcomer. As far as names go, I think I hit the traveler's jackpot.
In September 2014, I bought a plane ticket and headed out for 2.5 months in Southeast Asia to fulfill my destiny as a Newcomer. Somehow, those 2.5 months have stretched into 2.5 years and counting.
Unfortunately, I don't have a dramatic story of quitting my job, selling my possessions, and hitting the road. I've always been self-employed and I never much cared for accumulating things. But that doesn't mean I enjoy travel any less.
By day, I ply my trade (and pay my bills) as a freelance writer. By night, I share travel tips and gear on this site. Occasionally, I scrape up enough time to actually...travel.
Join me on my journey to learn just what this great big world has to offer.
