I am a fanatic about traveling light. I can easily travel with only a 30 litre backpack for single purpose / single climate trip of any duration. However, not in your context as non-stop nomad. Given your case, what do you consider "light"?

Hey Andy, Ismael again, thanks for answering my question. I didn't mean to be disrespectful, I am not native English, what I mean is there is a brain principle (sabing energy) which always influences us to take the easier road, and that is why people destroy their lives with social media, pretending

Keri H

I will travel in Spain and need secure internet to work digitally on a laptop (virtual bookkeeping for clients). Internet cafes are not a great option for security reasons; I can get a local sim card and create my own hotspot - but data flow may be limited. Any advice on best options for a secure and reliable connection to transmit financial data

Why Don't You Care About Your Young Audience?
2019 August 2

Ismael Garcia

Andy I am 24 years old I decided to finally travel to Africa in less than 600 dollars a month exactly like you teach us and it works!! My question is why don't you create an app for hobotraveler because for us young people qe don't use forums anymore like the one you have, and you lose A LOT of money because of this I am sure. Just go to Fiverr.

I do care about young people

Andy why do you need a special form?
2019 July 13

Andy Graham

It seems like you just get questions you read the email and then you answered answer them. That seems quite easy.

I feel very guilty when I don't answer everybody's questions because I lost track of the question. Or they write a three paragraph question which makes it impossible for me to chop down to something small. Plus we will eventually have a way for video questions and vote to the top a question. Generally people write me a question in any way that convenient for them.. I do not answer questions posted on Facebook or Twitter unless it's such a great question I just love it. that's an idea I can give a vote on which value a question has to me as a world traveler a 1 to 10 system. So if you want your questions answered you have to place them here. Life is good your friend Andy Lee Graham.
